Keeping it Real

We've got about one month left before our follow-up health assessment at the Cooper Institute in Dallas for the GRFW Better U program. I'm not at all excited! In fact, I'm dreading it! I fell way off the program within the last 3 weeks or so and I keep promising myself to get back on and I just can't seem to motivate myself to do it. I have lost a total of 5 pounds - yep, that's it!!! I think that's pretty disappointing and I can't get out of that low. I have been eating better, and I'm exercising. I'm walking about 1.3 miles 4-5 times a week and sometimes I even come home and hit the treadmill. So, why have I only lost 5 pounds? It isn't making much sense to me at all.

I had small triumph this week when I finally measured my waist and I was pleasantly surprised that I've lost 1.5 inches - this is good news because I am back under the 35 inch threshold for concern about heart disease (ladies, you should be concerned about increasing the risks of heart disease when your waist is greater than 35).

To be honest, I would like to see more weight loss and more size lost and that's probably the anchor on my ankle. It's so easy to say just exercise more, but really, when in the world will I find the time. I leave at 8 in the morning and return at 7 at night. When I get home I'm exhausted and then I have to take care of home (and then I'm planning Blogalicious) so where am I supposed to find any more time in my day. Whatever free time I've been able to carve out I'm exercising so what's left? Once again, I'll hope that things can pick up soon.
