Weekly progress report 1/9/15
Friday, January 09, 2015
I've had a hit and miss week. Still not 100% with getting up earlier to exercise before work (goal is every day) but I am slowly coming around to it. I am finding I like the peace and quiet in the morning. I can do the treadmill and watch whatever I want on the tube without input from anyone.
Breakfasts and lunches at work have been pretty darn good. I've stayed on track with some combo of soup/salad/wasa bread/tuna and supplementary snack of kashi bar or carrots. I am still having some major hunger before I get to dinner time. I need to figure out how to more successfully balance the calories throuout the day so this doesn't happen. I will admit that yesterday, while cleaning out my snack drawer, I found a reeses cup from Halloween. I was so happy and promptly ate it...then I felt the expected wave of guilt, lol.
I've cooked for dinner all week--very successful with this. All have been balanced and healthy meals. While I am not measuring proportions because of the sheer hunger, I know from experience when I am eating too much and when I am not. That said, I am very happy with this week because all meals (thus far) have been eaten by all parties without complaint. This has not been so easy in the past. My daughter turned 12 back in April and is finally starting to develop a more sophisticated palate.
I still haven't weighed myself since getting back on track. Nothing's fitting looser yet. Too scared that I will get discouraged by a number. I consciously am trying to stay away from the scale right now and focus on how I "feel." Like I said, I am adjusting to earlier mornings and the most notable difference is that my belly feels less bloated and more soothed by the increased veg. I was feeling like such a swollen and tight balloon all the time. These successes are enough for me right now.
Have a great weekend everyone!
