Yea! I have successfully slammed on the breaks and am now back on my path to health and wellness!
I lost one pound since Monday...and shockingly 1 inch from my waist. I must have been bloated. But I did notice that my pants felt better this morning, and it was interesting to confirm it.
I know I'm not supposed to weigh in more than once a week, but here I go off traveling for work. Tomorrow will be super busy day of packing, Sunday I travel all day, Monday - Friday I'm working out of town. I probably won't be able to weigh in again for another 9 or 10 days.
Of course, I'm thinking ahead to the fact that I will be traveling and already pondering what I can do to be prepared for it. I think I'm going to pack some rice cakes, some water packed tuna and a couple of energy bars in my bag, just to be prepared. And try and pick up some apples as soon as I arrive.
I also think I need to make a "no bread" rule...bread and butter have been sneaking back into my diet, and while I know that there are no inherently bad foods, this is something I have almost no self-control over. Warm bread and butter are my crack. And with restaurant meals in my future, it's best to just say no!
Preparation is key for me...I need to plan food for this week as much as I can. Then I'll have good backup options if no good food options present themselves.
Go Shirley Go!
