To say that I was pumped to see this weight loss, was an understatement!
I was not perfect for the two weeks, but I think the addition of my morning walk really paid off in counteracting my less than perfect days. I did at least 30 minute walks 5-6 times during the two weeks, so not a ton, but obviously a good amount for me!
It turns out that I really enjoy my morning walk. Don't get me wrong, I don't like to get up most days, but on the days that I get up at 6am, have a little time to myself and head out the door at 7am, are the most productive days and I am looking forward to keeping it up all summer! How many weeks to make a habit? 3? By the end of July it should be just part of my routine...fingers crossed :)
Now, it is summer and the real challenge begins. Cookouts, beach days, ice cream, beer, no schedule or routine, catching up with friends over lunch and dinner. Oh and birthdays....lots of birthdays! Mike's birthday is Wednesday, then my dad July 1st, Olivia the 7th, Owen the 9th and me the 24th! There will be 6 occasions to have cake and ice cream in the next 4 weeks. Give me strength....
I may have to go two weeks before weighing in again this time, which won't be a bad thing for my motivation because I didn't track this weekend and I really should have thought ahead before eating whatever I wanted this weekend, because I am eating out for dinner 3 times this week and really could have used some extra points for that. So the fact that I don't get to weigh in this weekend is probably for the best and now I know that before not tracking on the weekend I need to look at my schedule for the week!
I bought lots of fruit and veggies this week and I am going to try to save up some points during the day! I am following all of my simple rules this week and next and hoping for another great weigh in, in 2 weeks!
Have a great day!
