Last week I ate well and exercised, and the scale reflected that. I lost 3.2 pounds. 🙂 This week is shaping up to be a good one too. I love weeks like this – weeks in which my body and mind work together to make good choices. I also love looking at pictures and seeing myself in a smaller body so here we go again…
Thursday night I went out with several friends to see The Amish Outlaws, a band we all know and love. 🙂 I ate half of a bacon cheeseburger leaving the other half for Big Daddy Abel to eat after the show, and we danced the night away.
My friend, Char, compares dancing to an all-night zumba class. And we agree that dancing all night is a great way to burn calories especially when we get to enjoy talented, funny, sweet and entertaining boys. 🙂
It’s not always easy to make good choices, but I feel so much happier when I do it. And when I look at the big picture I’m reminded that what I want will be worth skipping the Smirnoff Ice or the popcorn at the movies. I enjoy those things from time to time, but I’m learning that I can enjoy myself while picking and choosing my indulgences. 😉
I really want to reach my first 100 pound milestone. I messed around for a few weeks, but I didn’t beat myself up (too much.) I started moving forward again. And I have to say…I like this direction.
What will you do be healthy today?
