Wow... what a month July was. Again, this recap is a little late, but I still wanted to write it! (I just wrote the June recap too, directly preceding.) July is the first month that I actually gained weight instead of losing since I started. And it does not feel good!
This month, I moved to a new state and my routine went out the window. I didn't work out much at all- first because of the move and because I didn't have my elliptical set up, and then because I got lazy and just didn't. Only 8 days out of 31; not so good.
I am disappointed in how this month turned out, mainly because I didn't make a decision to just take a month break or anything. I thought about what I should have been doing and felt guilty when I didn't do it. Most days I have been waking up thinking that I need to get back to my healthy eating and then I just end up eating whatever without thinking about the calories or anything. (Emotional eating again! Ugh!)
Also my blogging for this month did have a bit of what I was going through, the lack of motivation and all that, but also had some fluffy blogs which I think were because I specifically didn't want to talk about how I was doing. This is a good thing to take note of, maybe it'll keep me (and you) aware!
My goal for August (even tho we are well into it) is to get back on track. I used to be so gung ho, giving myself 10 lb goals every month. Where'd that chick go? I need to reevaluate my goals and why I'm doing this and GET. TO. IT. There's no time like the present. Let's say my goal for August is to lose 8 lbs, putting me at about 172. Can I do it? We'll see!
