Motivation Monday, October 25

Motivation Monday

Welcome to Motivation Monday! I will be chronicling my journey back to a healthy body, mind, and spirit. Each week I will discuss how the previous week was and set some goals for the next week. I will also be listing my progress. If you would like to see past progress you can look in my archives for other Motivation Monday posts. If you would like to get motivated with me please link up your post using the link form below. Your post can be in any format you want. Whether you are trying to get healthier physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually or if you just have a task you need some motivation to complete...please link up so we can help support each other. I would love to hear about your progress and help keep you motivated!

Healthy Steps
Last week was NOT healthy!  I had a stomach virus.  And... although I lost weight and body mass, I also lost muscle and bone mass.  Plus, it is likely I'll gain it all right back as soon as I can eat normal foods again.  Today I am still on applesauce and crackers.  I hope soon I'll be able to each some chicken.  If not I'll be heading in to see the Dr because a stomach virus should only last 2-3 days and I should be back on a normal diet within a week.  I have been keeping up with my water and am not dehydrated this week, so that is a healthy step.  I've also been trying to get lots of rest... at least when LB lets me.

Changes I've Seen
Well, I tried on my wedding dress and guess what?  It doesn't fit!  Yep, that's a good thing.  Plus, my jeans were falling off yesterday.  I really hope I can keep this weight off.  With all the sickness in this house last week, it's the least my body could do... I'd hate to have gone through all that just to gain back what I lost and then some.  I guess I need to work out as soon as I am healthy enough to do so so that I don't gain it all back at once.

My Numbers {From Last Saturday's Weigh In}

Weight - 217.6
BMI % - 51.4
Water % - 36.3
