Days 73 and 74: Back at it

Day 73

We left Fiji yesterday and arrived back in Japan late last night. Despite how tired I was, the first thing I did after I got the kids to bed was to rest my husband’s old Garmin, so I could start using it ASAP. I charged it, synced it to my app, and went to bed with it on my wrist. I felt pretty darned determined to get back on track first thing this morning.

I realized that without the Garmin and a step goal, I’m much less motivated to stay active. After I drowned my Garmin, I didn’t look for ways to move more like I have been since I started this challenge. I didn’t like that feeling. I need the goal to shoot for. I guess it just gives me a sense of purpose? Is that weird?

Day 74

I sort of slept through my alarm this morning and almost skipped my workout, but I really wanted to start the day off on the right foot, so I just switched my workouts around and did tomorrow’s much shorter high intensity interval training (HIIT) instead of the weight training previously scheduled for today. Despite not really wanting to workout this morning, I was motivated by the fear that I would fall into a multi-week rut where I fail on a daily basis to get back on track. I’m notorious for that sort of thing, especially after getting back from a vacation.

I was also motivated by the number on the scale this morning. I was expecting some water weight gain, but it still sucked to see the number displayed in real life.

My current weight: 127 lbs.

I’m hoping I can drop those extra lbs of water and get back to actually losing weight by the end of this week. Especially since I finally got around to scheduling my next Bod Pod – it’ll be next Thursday, October 25th.

I’m not really sure what I should expect at my next appointment in terms of results. I feel like this week of vacation really threw a wrench into things, but I can’t change that now.

Final step count: 18,335
