Oh my goodness, being back at work is a whole new ballgame. Dropping off the baby, the husband, the dog, doing a full day of work, coming back home getting in a workout, picking up the baby and dog, and waiting for the husband to come home and help take on some duties... all in the meantime, eating healthy and drinking water..... I feel like Superwoman.
Being a wife, mom, daughter, friend and now an employee... wow, it is definitely NOT easy to juggle everything and also keep up this healthy lifestyle. Don't worry, this is not a post to tell you I'm throwing in the towel. I just wanted to express that I got through my first week of my new life.
So I weighed-in at Weight Watcher's on Tuesday at 177.3 lbs! Yeah! It's only 1 pound down, but I have decided that this time, I'm not letting myself be disappointed if there is a loss, no matter how small. Why would I be? I am doing everything I can to make this happen so if there's a loss, it's because I earned it, not because I starved myself. So far, the scale has been decent to me, only going down. But I have to prepare myself for the days where I don't see a change, or I go up. Those are the days where I'm more likely to say, "screw it, what's the number for Pizza Hut?" I have to be prepared, not just physically, but mentally. I have to remind myself over and over that an off-week on the scale does NOT have to equal an off-week for eating.
I haven't ordered a pizza in 27 days. That has got to be a record for me. I love, love, love pizza. I could eat pizza morning, noon and night. It's got all my favorites: meat, cheese, veggies, tomato sauce and bread. That was my number one idea of how I would gauge this diet. Pizza was my archilles heel. I haven't given it up, I've just....modified it.
Next post I'm taking pictures, so stay tuned!!
