Today is weigh in. Usually that means stress. Not today.
This past week I have been doing what I should be doing all the time.
I stopped eating when I had had enough.
I got in a lot of exercise.
I drank at a minimum of 8 glasses of water each day.
I logged in every single bite of food I put in my mouth.............well, ALMOST every bite.
I got into my jeans, zipped them and buttoned them without having to lay on the bed. I can even BREATHE with my jeans on! AND I don't have much of a muffin top at all when I wear them.
I KNEW my weight was down.
So far, in three weeks, I have thrown away 4 pounds. That's a good thing, as Martha would say.
But WAIT! There's MORE!
Yesterday I had to do some Costco shopping for milk.
I got the milk, then browsed through the clothing section. They had sports bras, 2 per package, at a VERY good price. Picked up a package of them.
Then I saw these really neat sweaters for $12.97. Picked up one of them, too.
BTW.........you ARE aware, aren't you, that when the cost of something at Costco ends in a 7 that that is the lowest price they will have the item, and it won't be continued stock? I always look for the 7.
My mind tried to trick me into "browsing" through the chocolate covered raisins, macadamia nuts, cashews. I reached for the chocolate covered macadamias, and then said "NO!" really loud.
I pulled my arm back just in time. The container did not get into my cart!
Then I go past the mixed nuts, temptation again. "NO!" outloud helped again.
I zoomed to the check out, paid for my three items, and got out of there.
What a VICTORY!!!
TO ME AND SPARK!!
