I have had a mostly good week. Last week I had a realization that I was letting myself go on the weekends and that it was having a poor effect on all of the effort I have been putting into this process. I was eating out more, I was eating sweets, and it wasn’t just for one day. Well I noticed that my belly was coming back a bit on Monday and it made me upset because I like my body getting smaller, not bigger! This will be my first weekend being on-track. My big hurdles will be:
1. Not eating out when hanging out with Robert’s mom. we always eat out with her. And we always see her every weekend.
2. Working out hard–I sometimes don’t work out at all or don’t work out enough. I plan on going to boot camp tomorrow at 1pm to stay on track.
3. Not allowing my mind to convince me that eating extra sweets is “ok”. I always allow myself desert on the weekend. No more.
I also had an unexpected moment yesterday–I posted a picture of myself at a shopping event and the response from it surprised me–two people commented on there about how good I am looking and then another friend I was chatting with this morning, who hasn’t seen me in about a year, told me I was looking skinny. I love the positive feedback, especially since I am so close to the situation that I don’t see the changes. I am also incredibly hard on myself, so I need the positive feedback from others because I do not give it to myself. It is just so exciting to have this wonderful feedback–it makes me feel great about myself and it makes me want to work harder 🙂 And all of it from an innocent picture I posted, showing my dorky side at a shopping event. It is really nice and it makes me excited for the future!!!
