Today marks 2 whole weeks for me, totally Gluten-Free. I am so proud of myself. Honestly, a HUGE part of it has been just knowing that I had some Spark buddies who were wanting me to do better and make it. I am really excited.
Yesterday my tummy did not feel too good. Not real sure why, but at lunch my coworkers wanted to go get fried chicken. In a compromise, I offered to drive and went to get myself a smoothie and fruit salad before heading to the chicken place for them. Yeah, it really sucked smelling dadgum chicken and fries all the way back to the office, but I couldn't help feeling great that I didn't join them. I'd have blown my new healthy eating habit AND my gluten-free pact (because of the breading on the chicken) all at once. I stuck to my guns, my coworkers were very sweet about it, and I felt great for the rest of the day.
This morning I got on the scale and have reclaimed my stake at 112 pounds. Before anyone throws anything at the computer screen and screams that I don't need to lose any weight, please know: I am 4' 10.5" tall, smallish structure. My lowest adult weight was 92 pounds... WOW. What a BAG OF BONES I was. (Right before I married, fresh outta high school, STRESSED TO THE MAXXXX.) I am going for 105... and not holding myself to that goal. I just know that weight is where I've felt my best in the past. Now, I don't think I've ever had as much MUSCLE as I have now, so that weight may never be reached... FINE by me! I am focused on being HEALTHY, not SKINNY. There's a dang big difference. :-)
AND, today is also a day to do the dance of JOY because I am finishing up my Shred tonight. I am gonna really blast it OUT tonight. I'm gonna punch like Rocky and crunch like the Cap'n! Can't WAIT to do and then have my victory dance!!! I am PSYCHED for it.
Which leads me to... What's NEXT? I always have hated ending a program in the past - be it race training, the times I've done the Self Challenge, or other things... I think I'm going to keep up this momentum and have actually done a little planning ahead. Each time I've gone to WalMart the last few weeks I've picked up another Jillian Michaels DVD, so I have a pretty good little library going. I'm thinking I am going to alternate the 6Week6Pack and Ripped in 30 DVDs. We'll see. I got a couple others to pick from, too. I hear the Ripped program is a little tougher than 30 day shred, so it may be the perfect next step...
Well, I have rambled long enough! You ladies have a GREAT Friday and take care! Thank you all for your encouragement!
