Confession: down another pound this week
That makes over 7lbs in the last four weeks.
Confession: I’m only cautiously optimistic
I want to be able to sit back and enjoy my success but it makes me nervous. In the back of my head I’m waiting for the other shoe to drop.
It seems I’ve finally fallen in step with the food and fitness and I’m holding on tight.
I’m now realizing that stress equals temptation for me. I had a tough go of it Saturday when our outing got hijacked by hubby’s work.
Taking me off my routine made me very cranky and that made me wanting to sink back into my bad eating habits. My head was telling me the chocolate would make me feel better.
Confession: it never did and wouldn’t then either
I have put so many of the puzzle pieces together: food, fitness and now the last thing to fall in step is my mind.
I have to teach myself that choosing better options is a better idea. That being mindful about my food is going to get me to 52 by the end of the year.
I can do this. I WILL do this.
No Zumba this morning. Tweaked my back somehow in Combat and decided to rest it for Combat on Tuesday.
So Thing2 and I hung on the couch and watched Girl Meets World
Then got busy with my to do list
But Shawn got a call from his work and I ended up here
Once he came to the rescue he took me for lunch
Then our regular shopping happened and it was home where we had no kids to help put groceries away
Oh my that’s a collection of water glasses
Got a hair cut
And now I’m curled up watching Law and Order SVU and having a quiet night.
Oh my word 😍
I can’t wait to wear them!!!
See that there. I threw out the KitKat 😳 who am I??
I love our break out rooms though I don’t use the bean bag chairs because I’m afraid I’ll never want to leave
I know this year will show me I can do things that make me terrified. I know this year will make me stronger.
I love a quiet moment to sit in the group fitness room. I have time to reflect on how far I’ve come. 3yrs ago I wouldn’t have taken a group class in a big gym like this if you paid me. I did smaller classes where I knew most of the class. Now, I wouldn’t trade the feeling I have when I finish a class in a room full of people and I look just like everybody else for a split second.
When your lunch is more colourful than the clothing you wore today.
Confession: today’s weather tried to very much derail my WI.
Did I let it? Nope.
I was down 3.9lbs 😳
I knew giving up the junk was gonna make this a great week for me but holy crap!
I have successfully gotten through choices to not eat ice cream cake and Starbucks and haven’t touched junk food.
I knew the week was going to be hard. Coming off the sugar I was taking in would be tough. I had headaches and a serious case of the crankies.
However, as the week went on I felt better. My tummy wasn’t as bloated and I had more energy. Instead of having my regular night time snack of chips and chocolate I was having toast and tea or thawed frozen fruit and cool whip.
The more I chose to say no the more I realized I didn’t need it. Saturday was a big temptation day for me. I walked by the Newfoundland Chocolate Co where I always got a few truffles. It was even worse once we got to DQ to buy my daughters birthday cake.
Confession; it smelled really good
I was stronger than that smell. I abstained from the cake and had jello and cool whip.
The WI was just the cherry on top of a week of strong choices. I didn’t feel deprived. I would look at the chips and chocolate that’s in the house and would talk to it lol “I don’t need you” I would say.
It’s funny because I know WW maintains that you can have whatever you want in moderation but clearly I have impulse control problems when it comes to the junk food. I know this now and can make the appropriate choices to make me better.
I am so proud of my progress this week that I can’t wait to see what I can do next 😊
What a glorious morning
Then it was time to get my sweat on with my girls in Zumba
Then since it’s Thing2’s 17th Birthday we had lunch out with her and my parents
Then we did some birthday shopping, I take weird pics while waiting for her lol
It wouldn’t be Saturday unless I saw some cool people
Oh yeah I did some ME shopping too
While my family had ice cream cake I chose to have something different; lime jello and cool whip (it’s not just for hospitals anymore lol)
Now I’m watching Law and Order SVU and waiting to see what our first real winter storm dumps on us.
Who is this girl! Before my go to happy meal at McD’s was a six pack nuggets with fries and Coke Zero and two chocolate chip cookies
This was today’s meal;
