Day 7... Week 1 is a wrap!


I will be a success story (even though my boobs will never be that big and my waist will never be that small, lol)!

I did it... I made it ONE WHOLE WEEK on plan! No cheats, no excuses. I did it!

I have proved to myself that I CAN DO THIS. The next three weeks will just solidify that fact.

Numbers:

Last Thursday morning I weighed in at 315 (a horrible gain from days of binging). Today, I weighed in at 306.4. That is an 8.6 lb loss this week! I will definitely take it, even though I know a lot of that was water weight.

I journaled my food/calories 7/7 days this week!
I took my supplements 7/7 days this week!
I exercised 5/7 days this week! (180 minutes of exercise TOTAL)
I stayed within my calories (1800) all week! I averaged 1745 calories daily.

I am proud of myself. I really am. I am looking forward to another week. I know that if I keep this up that by the end of these 30 days I will be under 300 lbs! Yes!

I also had a NSV today... My youngest child got sick at school today... was running a fever and not feeling well. She's had a bad cough for a while, so I took her straight to the doctor after school (instead of going to the gym). Turns out she has bronchitis and a sinus infection. Poor baby.

Well, I came home and fixed dinner (spaghetti made with whole wheat pasta... first time trying it and it was good!). And after dinner guess what I did? I WENT TO THE GYM! I didn't get lazy once I was home, and I didn't use my sick child as an excuse. I made the time! And it was a great workout, too. Not hard like it was yesterday.

I am off to bed with my new Nook! I got a great deal from a co-worker yesterday... she got a Nook Color for Christmas, and was selling the one she had only got in September for $65, and that included a nice leather case. I love to read, and never make time for it... well, that's changing, too! I am slowly realizing that I need to squeeze some "me time" in my busy schedule. I can't be everything to my kids all the time if I don't take some time for myself. I am worth it.
