So here we are at the end of week 7 with just one more week to go in Shannans Challenge. My results havent been as good as I had hoped number wise but its these past couple of weeks that I have finally got the mindset that the numbers will not rule me. I am not looking at this from a new perspective and with hubby (who is a PT and studying nutrition) on board, I am hoping to achieve my goal sooner rather than later.
I am going to still weigh in weekly BUT I am also going to look at measurements, body fat % and muscle mass. These 3 figures together should be able to show me where the change is happening since on the scales it just isnt showing. I know for many half the battle is getting on the scales each week but for me, well I am at a weight where I really need to knuckle down in order for my body to let it go. Afterall, we have been friends for many years now and here I am saying you know what, its time to part and my body just isnt co-operating.
I am the boss and I am taking charge. Its time to tone up and get over the speed hump mindset of letting the numbers rule me. I will continue to update this and even once I get to the 12th week, I will restart another 12 weeks and I will keep going until I achieve my goals. The only way to achieve greatness is to NEVER EVER GIVE UP! That is my plan :)
So this week I am changing it up a little. Hubby is on board and he is going to fix me up a fitness plan as well as make some changes nutritionally. Now just need to move past the whole point that he is my hubby since at the end of the day, husband or not, he is a personal trainer and he does know more than I do. Hmmm this could be my toughest hurdle yet!!
Bring on the next 7 days........EEK!!
