Although I forgot to change my weight tracker, I am happy to announce that my hard work has proven to work this week. I have lost two pounds and my upper arms (not sure how) lost one inch. I am now back to my lower s.p. weight that I had reached a few months ago. I was gone a few months because I was really busy with enjoying the nice weather and a friend's visit from Australia. So, at least I am not where I stopped a few months ago.
Today is a good day for me because I am full of energy. I am learning more about how to eat the proper way with having splurges. I am one of those people that normally goes full force -it's either black or white for me. But I have come to an understanding that I do not want to block every single thing out of my diet because I know that I will cheat. So, this morning my husband and I tried ourselves to caribou coffee and McD's Sausage McMuffins (no egg). I was a little sad to see that McD's had changed the Sausage McMuffin and had added cheese which boosted the sandwich up 170 calories for a total of 370 each! I was amazed and not sure why they really did this, I was loving the 200 calorie sandwich. As a new plan, I worked around my eating today so that I could have this special treat. After eating low calorie, vegetarian, vegan meals the entire week - I was ready for something with a little meat in it. Perfect!
Tonight I plan on weight-lifting and doing a little running. I am finding that the more I run, the more I want to get out there even through the 30 degree weather. I used to be a treadmill type of girl but now I love the outdoors! Thank the Lord for my health and ability to work along this healthy path before it was too late. God Bless all! Now get out there and add some miles to your exercise plan today!
