September Goals and Pretending to Have a Life

So August's goals did not turn out as well as planned. But hey, I goaled and blogged. Go me.

Should we try again? I think so:

September Goals
(I'm always a little late ;)

• Blog More. Putting it first this time. We'll see if that helps.
• Break 195. The loses are coming more slowly so I'm adapting my goals.
• Walk/Jog/Bike Outside at least Once a Week. Quick quick before it gets too cold.
• Take and Post Progress Pictures. Ugh.
• Flirt with a Stranger at the Bachelorette Party.
• Double weights in BodyPump. I increase by 1.5 yesterday.

As you can see there aren't that many. I'm just trying to make it through this month. My bff from high school is getting married. I'm a bridesmaid, planning the bachelorette party (maid of honor is from another country) and making the cheesy wedding reception video. Plus working and the gym...I'm all outta goal setting.

So this weekend I am house/dog/cat/bird sitting once again. It is quite strange to randomly stay in someone else's home for days at a time every few weeks. I pack up my cats (two as of this week) and pretend being there is normal. I know what's in each kitchen cabinet. I know where all the light switches are. Its almost like its mine. But its not. I go from my simple little one bedroom apartment to their 3-story house complete with home theater. And its empty. This big house with me and a bunch of pets, pictures of their kids covering the walls. I don't have a husband, a family, a nice house, places to travel to on the weekends. I have two cats and a humble apartment. This place echos, ya know. It's lonely.

Anyway...
Thanks for reading.

August Goal Results Fail

Life is busy you know. I have a hard time keeping up with all this blogging and such as a single female; I don't know how you people with families actually accomplish anything.

So it's September. I guess that means its time to take a look back at my August goals and see how I did. I can tell you right now, its not good:

• Weight train twice a week.
I actually did this. √
• Break 190. This will get me out of the "obese" bmi and into the "overweight".
I really really did not. FAIL

• Go for a walk/jog outside, once a week. The weather is still nice; I should be taking advantage of it.
Not a single time. FAIL

• Keep kitchen clean. (This has nothing to do with weightloss but I'm really bad about it)
I did this too. √
• Blog weekly weigh-ins. I've been slacking.
Obviously not. FAIL
• Take and post progress pictures.
Nope. FAIL

• Try BodyJam or BodyAttack.
I did Jam, I did. √
• Dance to at least one song a day. And I mean embarrass your friends dance.
Negative. FAIL


As for weight loss, I weighed on Tuesday. I'm still at 203. With the complete trash I ate the last two weeks...I'm happy with this. I was sure I'd gained many of those hard lost lbs back and would have to start over again. It took major convincing for to even get myself on that scale. I was so scared. But sure enough, my body was on my side for once. Thank you BodyCombat obsession. Thank you.

I need to write more. I have a lot to write about. But sadly, once again, I have not the time. I'm actually still at work. (*Shhhhh*)

Have a good Labor Day Weekend everyone. It's pouring rain here :)

Thanks for reading.
