There is a lot to be happy about today. First of all, I lost more than half a kilo over the weekend. I was pretty active and did dinner cancelling so I was happy when I saw the numbers on the scale this morning. I really want to focus on low carb and not so much on low fat. I read on the weekend that low carb is very good for both weight loss but also in disease prevention and I really believe that. So if I have a bit more fat, OK but better to stay away from the sugar and starchy carbs and eat more veggies and healthy fats. So this morning, instead of my regular two small slices of chicken breast on a Knäcke, I had a hard boiled egg. And you know what? I have felt fuller longer this morning and have not had the need for a snack before lunch.
I made another Apple Tart and this one was delicious. So good that it was no trouble to get rid of it here at work. I kind of like baking and then bringing the result to work. We certainly don't need it hanging around at home but that way, we can enjoy one piece or two and then get rid of it in a generous way.
Stress factor: On Friday, I have to talk to the cleaning lady about her work. She always seems to be done early but her work is really not very good. I hate having these talks but I am becoming more and more disappointed with her work every week. Last week, she didn't even clean the bathroom floor. I would say that this upcoming talk has raised my stress levels substantially. It shouldn't be that way but it is.
Last week I did well on most of my goals. Only slip up was skipping the fitness center on Friday but that was so relaxing. This week, I will go on both days and also (hopefully) go bowling on Saturday night!
Goals for this week :
1. Fitness Center twice - I traded my visit yesterday for a 5 Km walk in the forest with my dog. I feel like that still counts.
2. Declutter bathroom completely and reorganize - DONE!
3. Work on clothes closet (switch to fall/winter clothing) - >Will start tonight
Today, I'm grateful for having lost half a kilo over the weekend. It gives me more motivation to stick with the program during the week.
