Six Weeks In…

I am making good strides these days.  After getting sick I went right back to the gym and continued working out. I also noticed that I still wasn’t losing weight so I decided to change my diet this week. I am trying to introduce more fish into my diet, remove certain carbs like potatoes (I have a love affair with them!) but not entirely! Just less. And I am trying to drink 10-12 glasses of water a day, plus cutting down my latte intake to three a week. Some days for the coffee is hard. On Tuesday I literally forgot what day it was!

I am over an inch lost in size now! I measured myself and was pleasantly surprised! So I know the working out is working, I just need to let go of the few vices I was holding onto to get things moving in the right direction. It’s was hard not to let myself tailspin out of control and binge or something. That has been my traditional response when things don’t come off as soon as I want them to. And maybe that was my journey. Not to give up. Not to let myself slip. It’s tough, I am not going to pretend. My gut instinct is to eat chocolate and then loathe myself for it. Instead I am left feeling good about myself because I dug in my heels, said no, and worked harder!
