Being a maid of honor is exhausting. And hazardous to my health.

Monday, July 29, 2013

I've had a couple of "don't care" weeks with very little portion control or tracking and a lot of mindless eating and thoughtless decisions. My sister was home from Texas and won't be home again until her wedding in October. This last week was a whirlwind of wedding planning and maid-of-honor duties (which included buying her a new pair of shoes when she threw hers out the car window going 60 MPH down a rural highway). We ate out a lot as we were all over the eastern part of the state.

With school starting in 3 weeks, I need to get myself into a routine again. I'm going back to setting and monitoring 2-3 small goals and tracking. And controlling what goes in my mouth.

It's not all bad. I like what I see when I look in the mirror. There have been more than a few "holy freaking cow, this looks good" moments in the past few weeks. I may not have lost weight this summer, but I have toned up and I have lost inches. I feel better and more energized than ever before.

Small goals for the week:

1. Eat at least 2 meals at the kitchen table.

2. Complete 1 home and 1 school project each day (unless I work a double).

Have fun with the maid-of-honor duties! I was my sisters matron-of-honor, but lucky for me she was an easygoing bride. emoticon

    I concur, why did she throw her shoes?

Other than that you sound like an awesome maid of honor!

I'm also glad you looked at how many inches you've lost instead of pounds, I think it's hard for people to do that. emoticon

    Um, wondering about that 60 mph shoe flinging event...

Anyway, congratulations on your toning up and losing inches! Keep up the good work!
