Welcome back riders!!! Week 2 has not been by friend. I actually had a pretty good week. I went to the gym and had a great workout for about and hour and a half every day. I stayed within my calorie limit almost every day. I chose water instead of other beverages except for a few cups of coffee and one diet soda day.
My husband has been working CRAZY hours and I have not given in to my food addiction. Usually, when he works late or is gone, I use that as time to treat myself and my pity to horrible food, and I didn't fall for that this week. So I guess actually I did have a successful week, but since my goal is to lose weight and I did not, I am feeling a tad discouraged.
I do though promise myself and you, that I am on track this morning and will have a great week. I am struggling though to not play the mental games that I have played for the past 16 years. In the past if I have a no loss week, I start to get confused and decide I cannot possibly figure out how to lose another pound. I tell myself that if what I did last week didn't work, what the heck might I have to do this week to lose weight, and decide I am not up to the challenge.
SO....If I can get past myself and my past....I will decide to go back to the first week of the Flat Belly Diet and have a CLEAN week, which means ZERO cheating!!!
I will be in God's word EVERYDAY, and I will exercise everyday for as long as possible as hard as possible!
Then next week I will step on the scale in peace knowing I have done all I can physically do and pray that I get the results I am looking for. Even as I type this I feel doubtful. hm, no worries, it's hormones. :/ just being honest.
We are home today, Jack has the day off school, which is grand, because I slept horribly last night. We were supposed to go out with Dawn and Parker this morning and since I don't often get out with other moms and their kiddos I was really hoping to be up for it. But we were not. :(
I hope to get out to the store to buy a frame to hang a scripture verse above my sink. I do feel best when I am being creative so putting that together should be fun.
I hope you have a great week!
