I feel pretty good today as I think I’ve been fairly consistent for the past few weeks with my activity and clean eating. Even when I do fall off the wagon, I give myself a strong mental pep talk so that it doesn’t get me so down on myself that I keep falling into a bad negative eating pattern. I’ve been making sure to make ahead meals for the week so that nights when I go to school right after work I still have something healthy, home cooked and substantial to eat. I’m having fun trying new recipes too and reviving my interest in cooking again, something that fell to the wayside when my son was born 2 yrs ago and speed eating became my Olympic sport.
I just ordered and received the Turbo Jam DVD and weighted gloves because I’ve heard a lot of good things about it and I like to keep my at home work out options varied and fun. Also thinking about getting a George Forman grill so that cooking a piece of chicken will be even easier and done in a flash (it won’t hurt to cook my sons grilled cheese on it either). *** If anyone has a GF grill and likes it, please let me know what model number you have – I didn’t realize there were so many options out there for George Foreman’s!!!!
So all in all I feel pretty focused, especially since I feel so much better because of so much cleaner eating (I used to get sick all the time before when eating from a restaurant or take out because of all the grease and oil everything is cooked in. It was so embarrassing). If I can keep up this momentum and make these habits a permanent part of my life, it should be easier from here on out and the weight will have no choice but to come off.
