Last night was my husband's work Christmas party. He works at a Christian school, so his "work friends" are actually our good friends who we see really regularly. It was a fun chance to get together. Something very cool happened there. Someone I hadn't seen in a couple of weeks told me I look like I've been working out!
I am feeling really good. I have lost 4lbs since the beginning of December, which isn't that much, but it is healthy progress towards my goal of 15-17lbs lost. I have been working out about 5 hours a week at the gym and am loving it. I have been doing 3 PowerCut classes a week and feel stronger. I moved up in weight on some of the lifts! And, I cringe and complain from the effort during class, but leave loving it and looking forward to the next class.
My eating is going pretty well. It is hard to have Christmas cookies in the house. I haven't had great discipline as far as the cookies go, but I haven't totally "fallen off the wagon" either. I have been trying really hard to make my meals healthy and balanced, which makes me less likely to be angry with myself if I indulge in a cookie later in the day.
Pants update! My "skinny jeans" and my brand new "goal pants", which I could barely get over my hips 3 weeks ago, are very close to fitting! I can get them on and buttoned, though not comfortably. I told DH that I think I'll be in them by New Year's Eve! Hooray!
