I was shopping a few weeks ago and I saw a top that I loved and had to have. Unfortunatly the only size they had left was a 12. I am a 14. I loved it and even though I don't usually buy clothes to shrink into, I made an exception for this top. This was around a month ago. It fit but was waaaay too tight...
I wore it to dinner tonight and I was confortable! YAY!
Additionally, YAY for restaurants that offer half portions! That allowed me enough room to have dessert, and we all know how I feel about dessert!
I upped my weights for 2 of my moves today, from 4kg-5kg dumbells, and the lat pulldown from 30kg -36kg. This is the weight I am focusing on right now, not the number on the silly scale which has bounced around the same kilo for 10 days now. Stoopid scale, what do you know?
This is true. I have lost 5.6kg, so while I may not be at the 20kg lost mark yet I am waaaay closer now than I was 10 weeks ago.
Related to the one above. I have made progress, and although it may have slowed for now I will meet my goal!
This is true. And I believe it when I haven't lost for a week and people compliment me on how I look. The scale isn't everything!
Word. I drink so much water it attracts comments at work from my students and co-workers.
...has become less occasional and more regular. And I am noticing a difference, both on the scale and in myself. So it has to stop. No, I won't be cutting out anything, as I know that cutting things out leads to binging, but I will be cutting back. This is me commiting to cut back on the chocolate and ice cream and cake that is slowly becoming a regular part of my diet. Now that I have exercise under control it is time to look at my eating habits and see what can be done. And I know what to do; Less chocolate and more fruit and veg!
At this stage in my journey I feel like Mrs Potatohead. For real.
My jeans are loose around the thighs! YAY. My tops are loose in the sleeves. YAY! The middle part? Not so much. A little difference, but not much. Yet. So I currently look and feel like Mrs Potatohead without the super cute hat.
So I woke up this morning and decided to continue the experiment. I did weights yesterday AND was down 900g on the scale this morning. Whats up with that?!
Right, in other news...
I am getting a massage in 2 and a half hours. And I can't wait. This woman is a magician and I always leave feeling relaxed and like I am floating on a cloud. I was lucky that she was running a deal and I got this massage for $40 instead of the regular $90! Who could pass that up?
Still feeling stuffy and sick. I slept for 12 hours last night...So yeah I think I am still sick. Go away cold, I am done with you now!
My only other plans for the weekend is a fun session of planning for next week. Who wants to be in my class next week? We are sprouting popcorn and then the week after we will plant it (apparently it grows!) and making popcorn. I am focusing on giving the kids experiences that they can talk about and write about to improve their oral and written language. I hope it works, and if not we would have had fun!
