Well today makes 21 days on my new journey and it’s been a hell of a week. I know after this week that I can do this… I had some things happen on Friday that set me off a little but I didn’t turn to emotional eating. I just stuck through it. I walked and walked and walked. I did over three miles on Sunday. I have no idea when the last time I walked that far was. But I did it.
So before I get too deep into things here. Let me tell you that I lost over 6 pounds this week and am now at 17.5 total pounds in. I mean come on, there are only 82.5 more to go. LOL. But I am going to get there. I mean it just shows me that I am going to have weeks like I did last week where I only lost 1/2 a pound and while my body adjusts, that I just have to stay on the good path. I am only 33 pounds from a new tattoo.
I got up tho morning and guess what I did? Yes, you guessed it. I walked. I did over 2 miles.
Now I walked Friday and I didn’t walk as much because of my show at the casino and little by little I crushed my goal. Saturday I had a wedding to play and DID NOT walk. It took me awhile but I made the goal somewhere in the second set. I find myself moving more and more when I know I have to on stage so it helps too.
Sunday, I was in pain. My arthritis in my feet was killing me. So in the early afternoon, I decided that It was time to walk and that I just had to suck it up. And then i had my best walk yet. I also went to Target to get a Magic Bullet to make my smoothies. I broke the knock off one I bought so it was time to pay the piper.
So this week is heading in the right direction. I am facing my demons one at a time and though it sucks sometimes I know I’ll have a much better summer both personally and on stage if I can keep it up. And I will keep it up. Can’t stop won’t stop.
