It was a tough week, I had a great friend in town who I had to meet for drinks and dinner because I love her. While I had the calories to spend, thanks to working out that morning and before we got together, I still picked the worst thing possible to eat and added two martinis. Seeing my friend was wonderful and we laughed and hugged almost as much as I needed! Then the next night I met some great local friends for drinks too, I did stay within my calories but a second night in a row of martinis ( 2 again) probably not so good. Again good mental medicine for me! So the fact that I lost at all makes me pretty happy.
Honestly, I am entering my hardest time of the year to stay on track. Something happens and it is like a switch flips, the “its the holidays so eat everything in sight” switch. Each day I just focus on doing the best I can and moving as much as possible in hopes of countering any lapses in resolve. It will be a real challenge for me, but I am hoping my dream of getting my first 14ner in early next summer will keep me on task.
One thing that helped me focus this week, was that I had to buy a smaller pair of jeans this weekend AND I got to buy them at the mall from a Gap….I haven’t bought jeans from an actual store in years, well other than the fat lady’s store but I hated those jeans they were purely purchased so I had jeans, it was wonderful. I felt almost normal shopping in there, when there were things I could wear actually in the store and I wasn’t returning something I had bought online because they don’t carry my size in the store…
So while it is not a monumental loss, it is a loss none the less and I will take what I can get!
