35/365: This week flew by. Once again, it's Tuesday and I'm worried about stepping on the scale tomorrow. I know I've been having good workouts and eating well, yet the scale complex remains
Soooo, that being said, it is time to focus on my weekly NSVs!
1. I can actually feel definition in my abs again. Those Zumba moves are really taking effect!
2. My walks while pushing a good 70 pounds and carrying another 20 are leaving me a lot less winded.
3. I no longer have pain in my knees upon squatting down to play with the kids.
4. I am going to need new workout pants as they literally fall down when doing jumping jacks
This week presented a few hurdles. I have avoided all sweets up until this week. We had company on Wednesday, so I made angel food cake with strawberries and cool whip. I had a small slice and even though I knew it wasn't very indulgent, I felt guilty. I made a small smash cake and the exact number that we needed in cupcakes (so there wouldn't be any tempting leftovers) of an applesauce carrot cake for my daughter's 1st birthday. Again, I had one cupcake (and a few broken pieces) and felt guilty. Then, on Superbowl Sunday, we went to a party and had less than a Tablespoon of a healthy version of chip dip with 4 little round tortilla chips and a small slice of angel food cake with strawberries and again felt guilty. I know that my indulgences were far more healthy than what I had eaten on a regular basis only 1-1/2 months ago, and I know that having some indulgences is important to avoid a binge or feeling deprived, I just wish I could shake this guilty feeling and believe it
On a brighter note, we celebrated my adorable little girl's 1st birthday this weekend and I actually removed myself from my usual place behind the camera to in front of it. I'll leave you now with some pics of the party
