Well, peeps... my vacation ends tomorrow. I can't believe it's been so long since my last post, but I have been LIVING and truly trying to enjoy the few weeks I was given off before the crazy starts back! I have drastically reduced the amount of time I spend on the computer. My farms on Facebook have even been neglected, lol!
But time away from my blog has NOT meant time away from my weight loss journey. I have really stayed focused. I am still exercising at least 3 - 4 times per week for an hour + each time. I am still doing about 45 minutes cardio and about 20-30 minutes of strength training. I can def tell a difference in the way my clothes fit, and in the way I feel. I feel stronger, and going to the gym is finally feeling like part of my routine. Even on days I don't (can't) go, I think about it and feel compelled to go.
Eating is also still good. I have been on the move so much, it really isn't hard to cut down the AMOUNT of food I eat... My goal is still to improve the QUALITY of food I eat. Now that I am going back to work tomorrow, I will be close to home again and I can see me returning to healthier meals and snacks at home. I've been eating a lot of Subway lately, because I have been on the move... A LOT. But you know what? It has been so long since I've binged that I can't remember when. That is a victory!
I have been socializing a lot in the last three weeks. That means my alcohol consumption has gone up. Not terribly, but even one cocktail three times per week can spell disaster when it comes to weight loss for me. But again, that's about to end once school starts back. No late nights and parties for me for quite a while! *sigh*
I am VERY excited about the upcoming school year. I know the first year of teaching can be tough, but I am ready for the challenge. I feel that I work for an awesome school district, and work with awesome teachers, and get awesome support. I will be successful, and I will have an awesome year!
I am so behind on blogs, but I am trying to catch up! I miss you guys, and can't wait to see what you've been doing for the past few weeks!
