I almost cannot believe it.
After my b-day dinner
and a few pieces of DH's Vday candy
and another nice at home dinner,
I'm down another pound!!!
I am not feeling deprived.
I'm tracking everything I eat.
I'm ramping things up at the gym.
I'm going alcohol free every other night.
I'm here at SP every day.
I guess that's my program and I am sticking to it!
Thanks for all YOUR inspiration!
Well, I chose a favorite restaurant and my handsome hubby took me out for my birthday last night.
I went with the attitude that I can eat as much as I want of whatever I want.
We shared an appetizer (Littlenecks Siciliano) with bread for dipping,
I ate broiled scallops with the house salad
(forgot to ask for dressing on the side so only ate half because there was too much)
we shared a dessert (which we rarely do)
and we shared a bottle of wine.
I tracked my food and I was still very close on my calories.
Finally, down another pound!
I feel like I deserve it.
No major blown days,
3 AF (alcohol free) days,
325 minutes of exercise so far this week.
Small, livable changes that work for me.
I don't (won't) feel deprived.
I guess I'll just keep on doing what I've been doing.
That's 8 lbs in 4 weeks.
I'm not being very compliant!
NOW I know what the nuns were complaining to my poor saint of a mother about all those years (did I mention I'm 1 of 14?).
Apparently, I ignore rules at will.
I have a very strict rule (or so I thought) of only weighing on Sunday mornings,
no ifs, ands, or buts.
Well, I HAD to weigh last Sat because I planned on pigging out (not really) on Sat. night.
And now I have to weigh on Friday this week because
it's my birthday tomorrow and I'm going out for a special meal.
I know I'll eat well and drink moderately but I just don't want to have to worry about it. Also, who knows what will happen on Valentine's Day
Coincidentally, today was my lowest calorie count ever.
Wish me luck!
I've been going AF (alcohol free) every other day for February.
I usually drink 1-2, sometimes 3 glasses of wine every night
so I figured that would help me cut down some calories.
I'm really enjoying it because I don't feel one bit deprived.
now I've noticed I sleep much better after an AF day
and I wake up a little sloggy (new word) after drinking nights.
Maybe I'll do 2 AF days between drinks.
