Just another day in paradise!

Wednesday, April 09, 2014

At least I wish I was in paradise. I'm feeling like I need a vacation. Not from my routine. I'm loving that I'm on a losing streak and I find myself actually looking forward to the gym each day. I mean a vacation from work. Or at least I'm finding that I need something to look forward to and/or count down towards. When we made the decision that Jeff would stay home with the kids and we'd sell our house, we knew that month to month bills would be tight... and they are. We do live pay check to pay check. We knew that we'd not be able to go on a trip or vacation this year. In anticipation of that we got discounted tickets to our state amusement park- so we'd feel like we had something to do on the weekends with the kids. Now all I can think of is a vacation. Maybe we can do a cheap roadtrip. I do get hotel stays for free- but it's gas, etc. in getting there. Ah well... I'll just keep thinking about that...

Yesterday was kinda a carb heavy day for me. I had wheat pasta for lunch and rice with dinner. It's not often that I eat that many carbs. Today will be more veggie/fruit friendly. I'm doing better with my water intake. And another success for the day- even though the scale went up, it wasn't by much... and... I didn't freak out about it! That was my biggest fear with weighing daily. I know that your weight can fluctuate every day, but I was worried about how it would impact my overall outlook. I'm totally fine! I'm still doing good! I'm down 23 pounds total on this journey and more importantly, my lifestyle has changed! I feel good! I'm looking forward to my workouts! Life is great!

Ready, set, GO! emoticon

    You have an awesome attitude about your weight loss! Congrats on all you've lost so far. As for planning a vacation, maybe you could gear up for a 5K or something like that. They're pretty cheap and would give you something to count down to. Just an idea... it's something I'm doing... Planning on jogging the Color Run in September and it's really pumping me up. emoticon emoticon

    I think it's awesome that your hubby stays home with the kids. It must suck though. No vacay emoticon Amusement parks are so fun though so at least you guys do have that!

    And you are killing it on the eating right and losing train! I bet the gain was just due to water weight because of the extra carbs. I bet it will be back down in no time. Keep up the hard work! It's worth it!
