Yesterday I had a sense of dread about today. I weigh myself every morning so that I have an idea of an average loss as each day can vary. When I stepped on the scale yesterday morning, I was still one and a half pounds from my goal weight for this week. I was feeling a little low for missing my first goal weight, even if it was quite a lot to aim to lose in one week.
However! This morning, when I weighed myself, I was ecstatic! I made it!
Aside from my 1h of walking/activity each day, I haven't really upped my exercise yet. Running was supposed to begin today but I was asked to work and extra day this week so it was pushed back to Friday.
While I miss my Starbucks specialty coffee, I've managed to live without (though had one as a treat yesterday for the first time in over a week!) I'm drinking at least 48oz of water every day and tea in the mornings. I've had a few regular-brewed Krueig coffees since the new year began as well.
We've been eating healthier. And smaller portions. Rather than our lazy meal of pasta, which is high in carbs and calories, we planned better and arranged for leftovers of a healthier cooked meal. We're trying out plenty of healthier meals. Most are things we never would have made - that lentil casserole from this past Foodie Friday? We have never had lentils in our house before (except for D, but he hates them) but we loved it! It's likely gong to end up on the menu for next week again. Tonight? We are having rice and beans, something else we never have (unless with chili, that is) I've found so many healthy recipes that I can't wait to try out!
I'm feeling good. I'm proud of my loss. I've worked hard for it and will continue to work hard to lose more. :)
