Happy Birthday America

IMG_2963

Happy 4th of July to all of you- whether you’re celebrating Independence Day or, if you’re not in the U.S., today is just another Saturday.

I am enjoying time relaxing with family after wearing myself out at a 5K this morning.

How are you spending the holiday?

Weigh in & 2015 Goal Check in

Close up of scale on white background

I was 100% on track for the first time in about a month and do you know what I was rewarded with?

A 1.1 lb. GAIN!

Isn’t it funny how that works? I have been feeling a little “off” the past couple of days…like my body is up to something. So, I’m guessing it’s water weight or something.

I had a lot of NSVs this week, so I’m not really worried about it. I started the Couch to 5K, I was significantly more active, and I only succumbed to emotional eating once. I am seeing progress!

It has been quite a while since I checked in with my 2015 goals—so I thought I would do that today since it’s the beginning of the month.

image_thumb5_thumbLose Weight I’m down 10.2 lbs. since April.

Exercise Regularly
As of this last week I have been walking more and also started the Couch to 5K.
   
image_thumb5_thumb6 Be Present (unplugged) I’m still working on this one, but I feel like I have made a little bit of progress. I try to pick up a book more often instead of my phone.
   
image_thumb5_thumb2 A Single Step (towards being a writer) I am making progress. I am working on establishing a schedule and setting aside time to write. I have book plans. I’ve contacted an old professor for advice. I’m working on believing in myself.
   
image_thumb8_thumb Make New Friends Hmmm… sort of. I’ll count new friends when I actually spend time with someone in person. So no, haven’t met this goal yet.
   
image_thumb8_thumb1Budget Ummm… Nope.
   
image_thumb5_thumb4 Purge This past month, my biggest accomplishment was purging my tank top drawer. I sold almost all of them. I also attempted to sell some cookbooks, etc. but no luck.
   
image_thumb5_thumb5 Blog More Most definitely. I’ve really been enjoying it, although sometimes sharing makes me feel insecure when I don’t get many comments.
   
 Read More image_thumb5_thumb5 I finished reading What You Can When You Can, and have started reading three more books. I should probably focus on one…

A Better Me
Since being diagnosed with PPD, I have made incredible strides. I’m certainly not perfect, but the therapy has helped and I’ve been doing a lot of emotional work and soul searching.
   

Not too bad! Looks like I better get back on budget and start making some new friends—the year is half over!

Have a fantastic weekend!

How was your weigh in?
