I saw a group picture taken a few weeks ago, and even though I’m up a little from my lowest weight, I still didn’t recognize myself at first. The way I see me and the way I look in photos are two different animals.
Resisted fattening cocktail party food.
Survived a very bad day without a splurge.
Helped cook breakfast of hash browns, bacon, sausage, grits, pancakes and eggs for 500+ people and didn’t sneak even one nibble.
15 days in a row of using MyFitnessPal, even on the days that aren’t quite perfect.
Splurged a little, but recorded it all on MyFitnessPal. It really helps a small splurge from becoming a wipe out.
Overslept, but didn’t use it as an excuse to miss strength training. Got up and went anyway; worked out with time left over to stretch.
Looking at t-shirts at an event, the large looked very small, but I got it. And it fit.
Noticed this a.m. that my workout pants are fitting a little better in the stomach.
No fewer than four people have commented on my “weight loss” this week, although the scale has not moved. Something good is happening, though.
Made a new soup recipe today and added chopped zucchini.
When buying groceries this weekend, I didn’t even go down the ice cream aisle. I’m finding it easier to indulge any ice cream cravings by splurging on a single serve at Baskin Robbins rather than buy large container to keep at home.
I had lunch plans for today, but took a lunch just in case. I figured I could always keep it for later in the week. My lunch meeting was canceled, but I didn’t have to scramble since I’d brought a healthy lunch.
Yesterday, I felt stronger and better during and after my strength training that I have since I had to take some time out of the gym in early August. It was a great feeling.
Semi-voluntarily added 15 lbs. to the sled this a.m.
Carried a 10-lb. bar while “sledding” today; still using the heavier sled weight, too.
Trainer increased weight on bench press today, and while I had to channel my “inner Rick Baldauf,” I did it!
Resisted a McDonald’s vanilla ice cream cone in lieu of a frozen Banana Spice Smoothie I had back at the office. (And it was at least 10 times more filling, healthier and tastier!)
