26 It didn't happen
Tuesday, April 30, 2013
Well, my wish of moving .8 from the scale overnight didn't happen. Maybe because it was more of a wish than a goal? I wanted it to disappear but did nothing to make that happen! Guess what? It didn't happen!
My son came over and asked for spaghetti for dinner, and I obliged - and ate it. I did go a little on the healthy side & used ground turkey & whole wheat pasta, but none the less, it was spaghetti AND we had garlic bread. I am not sure there is a way to make a diet garlic bread! If there is please share!
Oh well, all in all, I am happy with my 7.4 lb loss this month. I know if I really got strict and dieted, pushed myself with the workouts that could be a larger number, but I didn't.
I am content with not being obsessed with the dieting and allowing myself a night out with friends, or a piece of birthday cake once in a while. This just works better for me.
Small steps, baby steps to some! Reality is, I feel this is sustainable. This is a lifestyle I can live with, not just diet with. I don't have to eliminate all the carbs, I don't have to eat only chicken and fish, I don't have to eat only veggies! How freeing!
Don't get me wrong, I do try to make healthy choices. I try to eat fresh and whole foods when possible. I count calories, watch my carbs and fat intake. I am aware of what I am putting in my body. I no longer mindlessly eat. That is progress for this girl!
Yep, its a journey and I am not running, I am meandering a bit and savoring life along the way. :-)
