It’s weigh-in day, and I’m seriously anxious because I hit exactly 100.0 pounds last week. I’d like to see a decent loss this week, but I definitely don’t want to see a gain. It would be devastating (even though I’d just keep moving forward.)
Life has been good since my last update. I spent the evening with one of my favorite bands and some of my favorite friends…I saw a friend that I haven’t seen since the late 90’s…I worked out like a maniac for 70 minutes yesterday and 30 today. And I’ve made a new, inspiring friend who has helped me remember some of the wonderful things that I had forgotten (for too long) about my hometown. I’ll have my new car in a couple of hours so today should be fun too.
Monday was a tough day, and I ate dinner out last night too (which I have not done on a Wednesday in over a year.) I ate plain, unseasoned salmon because it seemed like the smartest choice. I don’t even like salmon! So while I could have done a few things differently this week, I hope the scale reflects the changes that I have made. I ate a chicken roll and skipped the pizza Monday. I ate a couple of cookies instead of several. And I ate salmon and asparagus while I watched my friends eat bacon cheeseburgers, fried mac and cheese (um, what?) and fried chicken fingers. (Sorry to whine..I just really wanted a bite of chicken though I did have some ice cream so I guess I’ll stop whining now.)
I know that the choices I’m making are better than choices that I would have made before so I’m not complaining. I just want to see the work pay off in numbers again today. Either way, I see improvements in myself, and I feel good about them. There’s a lot going on to make me smile right now, and I’m thankful for it.
What are you thankful for today?
