I haven’t been having the greatest day today, so I’m going to try to keep this short. (You know me, though, nothing is ever short!)
I am really proud of myself for how well I did this week in terms of getting back to good eating habits. I swear, it’s the initial 4-7 days that are killer, and then after that, it just gets easier. (Not EASY, but easier.)
I was a little disappointed last week when I weighed in because I’d only lost 0.8 pounds–and I felt like I’d had a pretty good week! I wrote yesterday about Jerry’s Beans & Greens turning out to be super salty, causing each of us to gain a couple of pounds overnight. So I hoped–
Okay, I have to stop typing mid-sentence because Noah just walked in the door and made my day. My month. My whole fucking year. HE CUT HIS HAIR!!!!
And holy cow, doesn’t he look so amazing?! I absolutely love it. He’s super shy about it, and he rarely smiles because he hates his smile, but I was taking a whole burst of pictures and caught this one at the right time.
I can’t get over it. Since he hates his smile, the only way I was able to get this picture is when he was laughing at how I was basically screaming how much I love it, hahaha.
…Okay, back to my regular post. Noah totally upstaged my significant weight loss today 😉
After a great week, I really hoped it would show on the scale (especially after that really salty Beans & Greens that caused me to gain two pounds overnight).
Last week, I was at 147.8 and today I was at 144.6! That means I’ve lost 3.2 pounds this week. Maybe my body just needed a little bit of time to catch up, but I certainly feel like I earned those pounds lost.
This week, I tried to get back to a good routine with my food. I eat my old favorites for breakfast and lunch (Grape Nuts with blueberries and soy milk for breakfast; cold cinnamon raison oats for lunch). I haven’t been logging my food, but I’ve been eating a dinner that’s a little on the larger side so that I don’t feel tempted to snack on junk all night. I do usually have one snack, but I’ve been eating prunes and/or dates at night.
Actually, typing this out makes it look like a very sad diet, hahaha. But I love those foods! And I love being able to cook different dinners every night.
The one thing that I really need to make a priority is running. It’s been SO sporadic. It seems like every time I start to get into a groove something happens–I was sick, and then my knee started bothering me again (not from running, but just a general knee injury from when I knelt on a screwdriver). I only have less than six weeks until the 10K race with Nathan, and I am 100% determined that I *will* do it!
I think I’ll make it a point to go to the state park a few times this week and run there. If I can get myself there, then I’ll have no choice but to run. The hardest part is getting started–making myself get out the door! I’ve been feeling a lot better about myself the past couple of weeks, though, so it’s the logical next step.
I can’t believe it’s March already. I had plans to write some goals for March (nothing huge; you just know how much I like goals).
Okay, as I said, I’m keeping this short! My day is a million times better since seeing Noah, but I’ve got a lot on my mind. Jerry is off today so I’d like to chat with him. Happy Wednesday!
