It works if you work it…

“Keep coming back, It works if you work it!”
Bill W., AA Big Book
No, I’m not in AA but if you have ever seen a movie that has an AA meeting in it, know someone who is in AA, are in AA yourself you have probably heard this. I grew up with a mother and father who were alcoholics and my mother was very active in AA from the time I was about 13 until she passed with over 10 years sobriety so I have sat in on a fair share of meetings. It was what worked for her, saved her life and gave us a real relationship for the first time ever before she passed. My point to all this is that if you do what you know you need to do it will work. We have all these tools around us that can and will help we just have to use them.
Right now is all about me for the first time in …well I’m not sure when the last time was. I’m putting me first and taking care of me. I’m also attempting this new thing called time management in hopes of becoming more organized and having less procrastination. Last week I took the time to break out my organizer I never use and put all my classes in as well as assignments due…I also added all this to my Google calendar and even figured out how to sync it to my phone! (I was pretty excited about this syncing to my phone business lol). In addition to school stuff I decided to try scheduling my hot dates with Gym…see all those yellow highlighted area’s that say Gym! I made 3 out of 4 of those yellow area’s! The only reason yesterday’s didn’t happen was because I had forgotten that my child was out of school so I had to take her with me to class and then I donated blood yesterday afternoon, so I can live with missing yesterday. Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday though I had some awesome dates with Gym. I even had a friend go with me on Wednesday! I put in 16 miles and even managed to get in some weights. Who knew being organized worked haha!
I did finally hop on the scale earlier in the week just to see where I was at and when I weighed this morning I have lost 3.2 lbs this week and I have burned 1,900 calories! What does all this tell me…It tells me that scheduling me time works and I need to continue to do this. It tells me that if I put in the work ill see the results. Now of course I already knew no work = no results, but scheduling myself makes me feel more obligated to ME to do what I said I would.
Current weight: 195.8 lbs
Loss this week: 3.2
Total loss: 28 lbs
Goal’s for this week:
- continue scheduling me time
- 4 workouts
- maintain H2O goal
