Feeling Ready to Focus on Weight Loss

Feeling Ready to Focus on Weight Loss

I had attempted to take on all three challenges, but I haven’t been keeping up with the Run/Walk Checklist. It seems like that would be an easy one for me to do, considering I walk every day, but I always forget to check the list!

However, I’ve been doing awesome with the mileage challenge (just a friendly competition for racking up miles either running or walking). I’ve been walking a minimum of five miles each morning. I’ve been second on the leaderboard twice in a row (among the walkers; the top runners are hitting crazy mileage!).

As for the Cookies Fall Hard Challenge (a different take on 75 Hard), I’ve been doing so-so. I haven’t been doing ALL of the things every day, which I would love to change. I want have that strict discipline I had when the challenge first started.

When starting 75 Hard, my goal was to develop discipline in order to stick with my weight loss goals. I didn’t care TOO much about the weight loss during 75 Hard, because that wasn’t the point of the challenge. However, now that I feel like I’ve developed some discipline (like the walking), I feel like I’m ready to step it up a notch.

I want to work my best at losing the weight. I still love intermittent fasting, but I know that I am eating too much during my “eating window”, which is four hours. I know that it’s not because I’m hungry, but because I’m stressed. We’ve had a lot going on lately–the kids doing school in a totally new and unfamiliar way, working on building a front porch before the weather gets cold, building Noah’s desk, refinancing our car for a better interest rate, researching and buying a new mattress, keeping up with the fall challenges, and several other things.

I’m starting to get used to the kids’ schooling, so hopefully that will be less stressful from now on. I finished the porch, Noah’s desk, and bought the mattress. I just finalized the refinance loan on the car (our interest rate went from 5.7% to 1.8%!! We’d bought the car just a couple of days before all the COVID stuff started, and the interest rates dropped significantly right afterward).

Now that all of that stuff is taken care of, I feel like it’s a good time to work on focusing on the weight loss. I am extremely uncomfortable in my body right now. I’m worried that I’m going to undo all of the work that my skin removal surgery did–I paid a lot of money for that (even though my insurance covered most of it) and I don’t want that to be a big waste.
