|Some snaps from the 21-day challenge that I just SLAYED AND TOOK NO PRISONERS!!!|
On June 27th I went to the doctor because I was a sicky-sicky and concerned about possible Lyme disease. Not only was the number on the scale was no bueno, but I also had high blood pressure, which has never been an issue for me (except when I was pregnant). She suspected that the HBP was due to illness, but said, “Well when we make your appointment for your yearly physical, we will want to check that again and possibly need to start treating it.” We all know what that means. Drugs. No, thank you.
I had already been exercising, and trying (<–note the word trying) to eat right, but I left at appointment feeling the need to kick things into gear and get into shape. Part of my daily motivation was the August 25th appointment for a physical. I daydream about going in and having a much better scale number and a normal blood pressure. I daydream about the doctor (who I have never met) saying something about my weight and being able to say, "Well, as you can see, I have lost weight since my last visit here. I run 3 miles every other day, and I do strength and flexibility training on the other days, so I'm good!"
Today they called and rescheduled my appointment for freaking October! A tiny part of me feels like I have lost that ‘immediate motivator.’ I was even counting on that appointment to keep me in check during our upcoming trip to Vegas and Dallas since it was 2 days after arriving home. Just a tiny part though… I have plenty of motivators in my husband, and even moreso the way I FEEL! I am full of energy and yesterday I suddenly noticed that I had to be more careful shaving my legs because of the definition in my calves LOL!!!!
I wasn’t going to join this month’s challenge group because we are traveling so much and have a lot going on, but maybe I should. I may need those daily reminders and motivators.
