Well, if I am completely honest, I didn’t do my best last week!!
As a family we went to Chinese Buffet on Saturday night. Which isn’t the most healthy of choices to begin with, but then I ate more than my share of food too. LOL! Including about a dozen pieces of sushi and ice cream for desert.
To sweeten the pot, the hubs and I had a few beers both Friday and Saturday night. When I woke up on Sunday morning, oh boy did my body hate me. Between the Chinese food, the beer and my period, my stomach was doing flips.
I didn’t eat anything for breakfast that morning because I was sick to my stomach. We had plans to drive down to Ohio to see Paul’s parents though. I sucked it up, got showered and dressed and got in the car. About an hour into our drive, I was starving!!!
We stopped for fast food. The first time that I have had fast food in 2017. I got a chicken sandwich, onion rings and a diet coke (my first in 2017). I ate the sandwich no problem, but only a couple of onion rings and after about 5 hours of sipping on the diet coke, I dumped half of it in the sink.
Which means, that I have certainly transformed my habits. Before I would have downed the diet coke and wanted another one. I ate the sandwich so quickly because I hadn’t eaten anything, but I didn’t go overboard.
When I stepped on the scale this morning, I hadn’t lost any weight. However, I am on my period (TMI, sorry) and the way I ate/drank this weekend, that is to be expected. Though, I haven’t gained any weight either. For the year, I am still down 8 pounds and that is incredible.
I did lose another 1.5 inches this week. In my hips and my thighs. All that helps my pants fit better and makes me feel better in my clothing.
I am not beating myself up for having bad food or too many drinks. I just think it is incredible how much different you feel when you fuel your body the “right” way. Starting the 7th week today and I am going to kick its Ass!!
