My Latest Few Days

Thursday, July 11, 2019

Did great the last few days. I went camping with my family and I realized yesterday that I had ice cream at the end of the day 3 days in a row. I was making excuses. Saying to myself that it wasn't my fault that my dad and husband took me out to ice cream. Then I realized what I was doing. The blame was on me. They didn't force me to eat it. They didn't even force me to come. 2 out of the 3 times I was the one to ask. It took a while for me to realize that I was still trying to blame others for my choices. Choices are one me, not them.

Anyways, yesterday I went to the doctor and got some great news. I won't go into details (cause it very personal) but basically there was something odd happening that was concerning both me and my husband. As it turned out, its nothing serious, and an easy fix. Such a relief and load off my mind.

Today I had my weigh in. It was a short week as I've only been on track since Sunday, but still I have lost 3.5 lbs in 4 days. That's impressive to me, and I have left behind the 380's, never to be seen again.

After a delicious healthy breakfast and a great morning stretch. I went on a walk. Almost a mile but not there yet. I spent the rest of the day doing house cleaning, dishes, and cooking, till the sun started going down. Then I went on a second walk with both my husband and my daughter. We walked 1.3 miles together. It was really nice. Upon returning home we went for a nighttime swim in the pool. My daughter loved it. The only thing that would have made it better would have been a lack of mosquitoes lol.

    You are doing great. Progress not perfection. Life is going to have some ice cream! I'm learning to make treats an occasional thing and then they taste even better. I love that your husband and daughter are doing activities with you. Sounds wonderful.
