I have felt very good this week. I didn't eat any dessert or candy despite going to the candy factory and also having a Pampered Chef show where we made double chocolate cheesecake brownies. I really feel like I don't want to eat that stuff right now because I know it is going to make me feel sick and tired. Right now my desire to not feel sick and tired is stronger than my desire to eat that food. Hopefully it stays that way, only time will tell. I did great this week with my workouts, I only wish that I could have gotten in one more day of weight lifting (it was supposed to be Saturday) but that didn't happen, so I only got in one day instead of two. Still I went to Zumba twice, spin once, and did a swim workout once, and even ran on the treadmill. Running is my weakest area by far. I have bad karma with running. Anyway, I feel like I made healthy food choices all week, and I treated myself to popcorn with butter one night and was able to go out to eat Chinese. I wasn't sure how my weight would turn out this week since I still haven't been tracking. I have developed a strong aversion to tracking recently and I really really just don't want to do it, so I haven't been doing it because I know it is going to make me stressed and miserable and right now I'm trying to figure out a good lifestyle. I am very happy with the way the week turned out and it seems like everything has paid off because my weigh in was:
148.2! That is down 1.6 pounds from last week. It's working! Focusing on making the healthiest choices possible, cutting out sweets, and really paying attention to my body and hunger signals. It's been a rough couple of months but I am on the right track again, making positive lifelong changes I can actually live with.
