Well, after a weekend of grazing on ‘whole’ foods, I gained a pound. I am back on track though so next week should be back to my normal loss ration of about 3lbs. We were out of town for the weekend and had to eat out quite a bit and our options weren’t always the best.
The one thing that I appreciate about where I am mentally with doing Ideal Protein this time is that I can recognize where I went wrong and because I was mentally ready this time, a small derail doesn’t cause me to go completely off track.
Last night I went to Zumba! It was hard and tiring and painful and amazing! I will be going back next week. I have never sweated so much in my life!
I am feeling really proud of myself because there were a few obstacles that tried to keep me from going. The first of which is that I was tired and sore from my workout on the previous day. The more pressing one was that I had absolutely no gas in my car. I was very tempted to just skip it but instead I changed into my work clothes, scrounged up $5 in change from around the house and barely made it to the gas station down the street to put gas in the car.
I was/am a woman determined to not only be super fine for my wedding and honeymoon, but also to live a better life for the rest of my life. The best part is that Tomi, my honey, is coming on the journey with me.
I am definitely falling in love with my new, healthy life.
