Here we are in week 1 of "Losing it 1 lb at a Time" and since I'm not brave enough to enter my actual weight (actually I hate to admit that number even to myself) we will say my weight is 15 lbs which is how much I would like to lose at the end of the 8 weeks.
Our question this week is "What is one thing that you find makes you fee beautiful/good about yourself and why?" For me, it's getting my eyebrows done. I try to go every 2 weeks but lately it's been more like once a month. I just feel so much better/awake/alive when I have nice clean brows. It's one of the few things that I take the time to do for myself and I am miserable when I can't get them done.
I was reviewing my original goals, which you can find by clicking here, and I can honestly say so far I have not been a very good girl! I hit a few snags trying to eat healthy this week.
- I took out chicken breast Saturday for dinner. Unfortunately, I took it out of the freezer in the afternoon and it was not defrosted in time (it was probably a subconscious thing... just thinking about dieting makes me crave deliciously bad food!). So, instead my Hubbins suggested pizza. Who can turn down pizza? Of course, he ordered breadsticks too (another weakness, ugh!)
- We took the baby on a walk in downtown Annapolis and got ice cream on Monday.
- I bought a chicken the other day and started noticing a smell in my kitchen. Thought it was the garbage disposal but nope, it was the chicken aka last nights dinner. Since the Hubbins had to be in work for 6 last night we took the easy route and hit up Burger King.
As you can see, I have not stayed true to my goals. However, I have been working out or walking (yes! one goal accomplished!) every day. Hopefully, that's enough to compensate for my gluttony! The bad news is, I'm driving to PA tomorrow. It's a 3.5 hour ride and we'll be busy so cooking healthy is not going to happen. Hopefully, all the heavy cleaning will burn lots of calories! I'm determined to behave next week and hopefully I'll be down at least a pound or two by then!
