024D6: One Kilo at a Time

Two Bowls of Salad

Metro Manila Community Quarantine - Day 202

Today's weigh-in was a happy once since I dipped below 74kg - and like a solid 73.7kg and not just like 73.9. I'll probably be back over 74kg tomorrow, but today I am very happy. And more and more this week, my body fat percentage has been below 24%, so that's another indicator of a good trend for my efforts. 

It's funny how whenever I have little weight or fitness milestones like this, I just feel even more motivated to work out more? A sense of progress is kind of intoxicating, I'll admit. So I don't think of indulging or having a cheat day - I just want to push harder and keep going. I'm so close to my interim goal of 70kg and I'd really like to get there this year without overly drastic changes in my current life direction. Slow and steady and all that.

But I do appreciate that I've come a long way over the past 2 years. But I keep saying that I still have al long way to go, and I honestly feel that way. Every kilogram that I've lost has taken a heck of a lot of work and I'm doing my best not to get dissuaded from this path. As much as a lot of people compliment my apparent dedication, every day is still a struggle and I have to push myself pretty hard sometimes to get out of bed to get through my workout for the morning. 

But at least I always feel better after.
