How much of a difference does 12# make??
Apparently, a LOT. I truly didn't think it would. But man was I wrong. I mean, my undies are too big! ALL of my work out shirts are too big. If I had thought it would, I would have started back on the WW path a lot sooner than I did. I am glad I did, but I am kicking myself for wasting the first 2 months of the year on something else and making excuses.
But that's in the past and here I am today, 12# lighter and I feel so much better. I am trying my hardest to make exercise a priority. That is my biggest downfall. I can eat right and I can drink water, but for the life of me I have to fight myself tooth and nail to force myself to exercise. Even though I feel GREAT afterwards, it sucks getting there. But thanks to all of my wonderful bloggin' buddies, I am doing it. I will do that 5K on September 15 and I will run the majority of it. :) Thank you ALL! Now, when is everyone else's 5K??
Today was not that great. I had a hankering for chocolate this afternoon and ate 2 (yes TWO!!) of DS Go-Tarts Pop Tarts. But I paid for it this evening. My tum tum did not like me at dinnertime. When will I learn?? I am deathly afraid to get on that scale Friday morning. But I will. I will put on my big girl panties (VS at that!) and move on. I haven't been 100% perfect this week, but it's a heck of a lot better than last week.
You know how a lot of us are/have been struggling to stay OP? For me, I have been "off" this past week (well actually it was 5 days) and I feel better. I feel like I am not tired of this anymore. I feel like I can be in control again. I feel like I can do this again. My motivation or first time umph is back. Maybe not 100%, but it's a heck of a lot better than it was this time last week. I care now. I didn't care last week. I tried so hard to care and it was HARD. Tomorrow will be a very good OP day. Tomorrow, I will stay within my points, choose fruit over the other stuff, and drink water, and I will work out tomorrow night with workout 2 of the C25K program.
Even though I don't want to post it, here is my menu for today:
B--English muffin (1), turkey bacon (2), banana (2)--5
L--Pigs in a blanket (6), corn on the cob (1)--7
S--OUCH!!! 2 Pop Tart Go Tarts(6), 2 small pieces of chocolate (3)--9
D--Beef Taco Skillet (6), refried beans (2)--8
96 ounces of water (so far, still drinking, should be 128 or more by the end of the night); only 2 servings of fruits/veggies. That's bad. Will do better tomorrow!!
Points wise it wasn't as bad as I had thought. I can breathe a sigh of relief for that.
I better get back to work. Have a good night and a great OP Thursday!!
