I was really excited to make such great progress in only a few days. I'm even more excited to see where I'll be this coming Friday! I worked out at the gym three times last week and stayed active for most of this weekend getting ready for and cleaning up after the shower. I did not put pressure on myself to go to extra mile (pun intended) and do workouts there because I'd done so well at the gym during the week. I took that time to enjoy with my family and friends, and it was wonderful. I fought temptations to eat cake and ice cream on Saturday at the shower and again fought temptation to eat pie and ice cream on Sunday after lunch. I was really proud of that, and hope to continue making those good choices. I know one day I will be able to have a slice of pie or a piece of cake, but right now I'm just not ready for that.
Although I will admit that Husband and I did enjoy splitting a piece of Christmas chocolate when I got home. It was delicious and I enjoyed every bit of that single bite of chocolate. Of course I wanted more, but that's just not an option right now, and I need to learn to live with that! Slowly but surely!
I'm ready to experience more small victories in the weeks and months ahead!
Soon, I will be posting my body measurements and also my week one pictures. I'm going to try to take better pictures this year. Hold me accountable, friends!
