I really should stop calling these 'weekly check ins' because I haven't posted one in over a month. August was a rough month for my diet. I started off the month having 8 lbs and was hopeful I could lose the last 4. Well, that hasn't happened. I have consistently exercised 5 days a week (except one week where I only exercised 4 days) but my diet has been a mess. I am about 50/50 when it comes to staying within the calories that MyFitnessPal allows. I haven't weighed myself (too scared) but I'm guessing that I have gained some weight back.
For September, I'm hoping to keep up the exercise 5 days a week AND do a better job of sticking to my eating plan. I've started a new Jillian Michaels DVD (Ripped in 30) and I like it so much more than the 30 Day Shred so that's helping my motivation. I plan to weigh myself every week because it keeps me accountable (when I'm struggling to stay on track, I don't weigh myself because I don't want to see the numbers go up but it is a really good reminder of how I'm doing). I'm also going to try to post more updates because that, too, helps me stay accountable.
With regards to reading, this week I finished The Best Man by Kristan Higgins and Becoming Lisette by Rebecca Glenn. I'm currently reading The Christmas Bargain by Shanna Hatfield and am loving it!
Have a great long weekend!
