My New Green Drink
A new week, a new chance to keep steadfast in my commitment to striving for better health. I was hoping for a boost in confidence and morale this morning - as I hopped onto the scale. The results weren't quite what I was wishing for but there was still a sign of improvement, just not in the weight department.
The truth is that I should be much leaner (body fat %) than I currently am. My weight still needs to come down as well. But my goal really should be two-fold - a reduction in body fat and weight.
I also need to remember that I lost a considerable amount last week. Perhaps more than I should be losing over the course of 7 days. Therefore this slow down may just be a reaction to that prior loss.
I'll know more next week. In the meantime, my resolve is as strong as ever. Some days I feel up, others not so much. But I'm sticking to the program. I think if I can continue to do that I should be okay ... maybe better than okay! :-)
