HE vs. SHE (Final Post)
It’s been a week from our final weigh-in, measurements and pictures – I bet you are all wondering how we did…..
The final calculations have been made and the winner is, drum roll please, ME!
Jen lost a total of 6.80 pounds (4.01%) and 10.80 total inches
Justin lost a total of 9.40 pounds (3.14%) and 10.25 total inches
It feels good to win, winning!! (Thanks Charlie.) Not so much winning over Justin (yeah, that feels pretty good too!) but more about winning the battle. I think I get it, I thought I got it before but for some reason it’s different this time. I get that it’s all about balance and making the right decision more often. This is what I know; one, I need to keep track of what I eat and two, I need to make working out a priority. It sounds simple doesn’t it? It’s common sense. So, why can’t I do it?
This was my second time around so I think I understood what that means, finally. I have to keep MYSELF accountable. It’s easy when you are accountable to someone else like Katie. She will hound you if you don’t journal, she’ll ask why you didn’t attend class, she’ll give you that look….that look like, I know you can do better. It’s easy to be accountable to someone else, why not to ourselves? That is my struggle and why finishing class with dramatic loss was not my goal. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thrilled at the results, but I’m more impressed that I finally got it. Again, for me, it’s about making the right decision more often. So, my journey continues. I will continue to take classes at The Shed and try to log my food intake 3-4 days a week. I figure the more I do it the more it will become a habit. Finally, a good habit!
Stay classy and see you in class!
