It has felt like the longest week ever! I have one more work day and I will have three wonderful days off to spend with my family. Last week I rejoined the gym, sending my best friend and I into a week full of much needed exercise! I had a coworker tell me today that she can see the weight loss already in my face especially, which makes me feel like my hard work is beginning to pay off a little.
Over the past couple of weeks while I was dealing with trying to recover from the flu, sing and travel with our gospel group, and building my immune system back up, my daughter has had my house full of drama. There were nights I'd make myself go to bed early just to keep myself from eating everything in the cupboards and fridge! I haven't cheated once, even the night we were on television doing a praise-a-than, a dear sweet couple that follows us as we travel and sing brought a ton of food. She makes these cookies that tempt me beyond anything else in the world, and I didn't even eat one!! I was so proud of myself. Before we got there my husband bought me a sub from Subway so I filled up on a ton of spinach and greens, this was a huge victory for me :)
Tonight at the gym I done a 45 minute cardio workout. My best friend who works out with me was exhausted from a long day at work so she backed off and let me get a full workout in! I feel like it's going to be a good year of getting my health back!
