Week 7... Really?

It's been a crazy week! Back to work and going 100 MPH. Early mornings, late nights. At least softball season will be over soon and I will have a few weeks off before basketball starts. The life of a busy, single mom, right?

Well, this week has also been good because I've been back in my food routine, and even made it to the gym a few times. Oh, and I wore my new pants and sweaters and felt AWESOME.

It's weird to me at times to really LOVE the way I look when I see my reflection. I'm proud of myself... flaws and all. 

No matter how slow I go, or how long this process takes me, I will never be the girl on the left again.

I've had a little scale frustration that I think I forgot to mention. Although I can really see the inches coming off, the scale is stuck again, of course. It may be my scale, because I was weighting the EXACT same 262.1 for about three days after I came back from vacation. I'm intending on getting batteries for another scale that I have, but I just decided to let it go for a while. 

Ya'll know I get scale obsessed. Right now, I just want to enjoy feeling great. And looking good, too. Who knows about that scale. Sometimes it's an accurate measurement for me. But sometimes it's a mind game. 

I can't believe I'm at the end of my seventh week of the personal trainer food. I see my stash dwindling and it makes me happy and sad at the same time. I've decided not to reorder right now. With the holidays coming up, I figure that I need to figure out my next step.

This food has been a GODSEND to me. It's got me back on track, and finally LOSING again. My sugar cravings are not gone, but they are manageable. And I feel like I know HOW to eat again. 

Everything that comes with my Personal Trainer Food is food that I can buy at the grocery store and cook, so I guess I will have to get back to meal prep. But I know the holidays are coming in the next month, and I DO want to splurge in moderation.

Yes, I am nervous. Moderation is not my strong suit. But I'm going to try.

I actually sat at a meeting on Wednesday with a table full of birthday cake and didn't have any. Yes, it looked and smelled so yummy. But I passed. I know I will have to pass a lot, and I know I can do it. But I do want to splurge. I want to eat Thanksgiving Dinner with my family.

I will figure that out when the time comes. For now, I'm going to enjoy the next week or so that my food will last. I have truly been spoiled by convenience!
