This week I lost .6 pounds for a total loss of 53.3 pounds. So, I am always happy with a loss, but I know I could have done better this week. There are some weeks where I don't have the greatest loss, but know I did everything that I could, but not this week. I know I could have worked out more (I only went to the gym 2 times this week) or I could have eaten better. I'm so happy with where I am and normally during weeks that are this busy and stressful I would have completely gone off the deep end with my eating. I'm happy that I didn't and did still manage to get in two workouts, but next week I'm really going to step up my game and get back to basics.
I took my weekly weigh-in pictures this week and realized I was wearing the same shirt 4 months ago. So I decided to compare those pictures and it's really amazing to see how far I've come in 4 months!
This week I struggled with a hard decision. A year and a half ago I got my real estate license. My mom owns a real estate company and so I decided to work part-time for her. I thought it would be nice to make some extra money on the side. My sister was moving out and I was looking for roommates and thought it would be nice to have some extra income if I went awhile without roommates. I've really enjoyed doing real estate, but I've paid WAY more than I've made. I just don't have the time it takes to put into it to really make money. I already have a full-time job. Although I enjoy helping friends and family, it's gotten to be too much and I'm really not making any money. So after much thought, I decided to put my license into an inactive state. I can always renew it and not have to take the state boards again, but I will have to pay around $700 to get all my memberships active again. I guess it would be worth it if I had a client that would for sure use me because I would still make a pretty good profit, but for now I think this is the right decision. So I had to take care of canceling and making all of those changes this week.
My full-time job has been really busy! I'm working on a huge project and things probably won't slow down until the end of January. I enjoy being busy though and I feel like I'm more productive when I'm busy.
Other than that, things have been going really good. I'm super happy with where I am in life and on my weight loss journey. I feel like I'm just about at the right fill level and things are going good.
Since I didn't do so hot on my goals last week, I'm posting them again this week. I'm going to really focus on them.
- Track all my food (even if it's bad).
- Workout at least 3 times this week
- Drink more water
