Has this week ever been busy for me! I have been so tired by the time I get to write my blogs that I have no motivation to start typing.
Yesterday I made my cheat day. I didn’t work out, I only had 1 cup of green tea and only drank a couple glasses of water. I ate breakfast and lunch normal then we ate out for dinner and had ice cream for a treat after. It was a really nice cheat day. Today I had a prior engagement at 8:30AM so I woke up, got ready, and ate cereal for breakfast and left. I had a lean cuisine for lunch and I had fried veggies for dinner cooked with a tablespoon of my light I can’t believe it’s not butter. Earlier I had some chili at my Moms. The other day when I wrote a post I said I had a hot pocket for lunch. It was a hot pocket but the “lean” kind. I just thought I’d add that since I wasn’t too specific. I am on my 5th cup of green tea and have gone through half of my 75oz water jug.
I still have yet to work out today. I am not sure if I will get to it. I am starting to get really sleepy again and still have stuff I have to do. I owe myself a really good work out one of these days. I need to switch it up again.
I have become a lot more relaxed lately with this whole diet thing. I am not as high strung about it as I used to be and I am ok with that. I needed to be obsessed with it in the beginning to get me going but now it has become so routine that I don’t think I will ever go backwards. I keep a good eye on my weight and am making sure it is still going down. Some weeks are slower than others but I am just taking this process day by day. Tomorrow I weigh in for the first time in a couple weeks so we will see how much I have lost. I last weighed myself at 61 pounds down. Gosh it is so surreal to even say that! 61 pounds is a lot! I tried to pick up a 50 pound weight and literally cried. I couldn’t even pick it up without having to use both hands it was so heavy. To think I used to carry that around with me. Tomorrow’s entry will probably be short and sweet. I will wake up and weigh myself and post the results! I hope I’m happy. I hope I have lost at least 4 pounds. It would be cool to say that I have now lost 65 pounds instead of 61. We will see!
