My Body Keeps Blowing Me Away!!!!!
It just blows my mind how my body responds to all of this exercise and low calorie food when I am here at the resort. Why can't it do that same thing when I am at home? Maybe I should just get a job where I work out 6-8 hours a day. That would be realistic huh? Well last week the resort decided to revamp their menu and their lectures and get away from focusing so much on calories. They also up'd there average daily calorie intake from 1200 to 1500 calories a day. I am having a really hard time wrapping my brain around this new concept. When I was at home I was eating on average about 1200-1400 calories a day. Now they are saying I should have about 1600-1700 calories a day but to not focus on the calories. I just am so scared that I'm going to gain this weight back. I know it's time to "get back to reality" and learn to live on life's terms, but I am just really confused with this whole new concept. I am ready to go home this time and dive into life. This has been a tough 3 weeks. Don't get me wrong, I have enjoyed it and am glad that I came back, but my mind and my thoughts have been at home. I was just starting to really get into a groove at home when I left to come here. Now I feel in a lot of ways like I have to start all over. Well this time I am in a much better place. I am looking forward to going home. I am looking forward to spending time with my family and friends. So when I left home to come here I made a goal that I wanted to lose at least 15 pounds while I was here. I am so excited and stoked to say that I reached that goal. I lost 15.2 pounds, 3% body fat, 2.25" in my chest, 2.25" in my waist, and 3.75" in my hips. I am so proud of myself. I have to be honest and say I didn't work my hardest every single day, but I did work hard. Well I hope everyone has a fabulous week and focuses on making your life better than last week. Focus on one thing that you want to change and go for it. Until I post again, may God bless you and keep you safe.
