Fitness Success

What is working for me during my fitness journey?

This is a very good question.

On some counts, I am encouraged with meeting my fitness goals. Yet, on other counts, I'm highly discouraged.

I broke down and took my measurements this morning, and was disappointed that I don't seem to have lost much if any inches. I, then, made the mistake of looking up sizing charts to determine how much I need to lose to meet my size 8 goal.

But, I will not give up.  I am determined to ditch these excess pounds and get fit.

I started using a pedometer this afternoon.  My goal is to start with 10,000 steps a day. My first afternoon's rate reveals almost 4,000 steps.  But, keep in mind that was just for a few hours this afternoon, so I'm hopeful I can meet that 10,000 step goal...  And looking forward to slightly warmer weather so I can get out and walk.

Besides that, I am looking into some meal substitute shakes.  The problem is that I tend to not like all the sweet flavors of chocolate and vanilla.  I tend to crave salty foods more, and the sweetness just gets to be too much.  Still, I'd like to do one meal replacement or more per day until I can drop some weight.

Having said all this, my hubby seems to be under the impression that I look great!  So, we'll go with his opinion and move forward.

  1. Glad your hubby thinks you look great! Don't give up. You will reach your goals and fit into that size 8. Have a great weekend!

  2. Sounds like you are doing great! I want to try meal replacement shakes too. I recently started a "Shaping Up For Summer" link-up, which will run every Saturday through May, and I would LOVE it if you wanted to link up your fitness posts. Hope to see you there!
