Lightening Speed

Tuesday, February 05, 2013

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 emoticon 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! emoticon
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 emoticon

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 emoticon

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 emoticon

    What a wonderful birthday party!
    You are doing so well and I understand how difficult it can be to not feel guilty about indulging... Remind yourself that are no good or bad foods and if you are tracking and staying in range most days, then you will lose and you still be healthy. I try very hard to pick my indulgences.. for example. I don't really care for milk chocolate so if someone offers me milk chocolate, I know I would rather have some dark chocolate and will treat myself later if I still want it. It really comes down to: how much will I actually enjoy this and is there something else i would enjoy more? (being mindful of what I eat...)
