Hope you’re having a great week!!
I have had a pretty good past few days. I am SO READY for spring break & can’t wait to spend it with my family 🙂 I miss them! I hate not posting often because I feel like I have so much to say to you all and I don’t want my posts to be tooooo long. Oh well! I guess i’ll just split the information up in different posts! I’ll be in Arizona & then LA for break next week but i’ll try to post while i’m there.
The eats have been mostly pretty typical, but delicious nonetheless.
I tried a bar that I had won in Jocelyn’s giveaway a few weeks ago & OMG it was sooooo delicious!! Thanks Jocelyn & the people at Perfect Foods 🙂
me & the boy went out to eat Tuesday night at Mia Za’s and I got a salad. I know I should branch out but I truly enjoy a big salad when my appetite is huuuge. I “made my own salad” with pineapple, chicken, mozzarella, raisins, lots a veggies, & sun-dried tomato dressing.
It was just what I needed!
I had a delicious breakfast a la KIX CEREAL the other day- they had it in the cafeteria and I could not resist 🙂
The other day I was ready to get a new lunch, but then I saw the salad bar..it was too good to resist.. haha oh well!
& I had pretzel sticks with mustard & ketchup
I had this delectable breakfast Wednesday morning, chobani 0%, pb puffins, cascadian crunch, pom seeds, banana, & cinnamon raisin pb
& I tried this bar that I won a while back in karin’s giveaway and i LOVED it. It really filled me up and I was loving the 13 grams of protein!
I had my weekly weigh-in appointment yesterday & I am proud to say that I am now in my “goal range.” Ok, I’ll admit, not every feeling was positive but overall I am REALLY proud of myself for kicking this in the butt before it got too serious.
I was going to talk about my mixed feelings about getting here, but honestly, I think they are obvious– it is a strange thing to be at this weight after all the hype, but I know that I need to make it my goal & my focus to love my body and appreciate my health (something that many would wish for). a 20 BMI seemed terrifying but I know this is a weight I can easily maintain. It is still slimmer than before I dieted and I should really be happy with it. This won’t be a piece of cake, but I know I will be able to get through the challenges that lie ahead.
A challenge lies ahead next week. I am going on vacation with my family and like I said, we are traveling to Arizona and then Los Angeles. There is no reason to feel anxious, but at the same time I can’t help but be a tad bit worried about the food situation and indulging.
I realize that I will be eating out (which I really am comfortable with) and i won’t have much control over my food, but I don’t want to “go crazy” if you know what I mean (i.e. overindulge). I don’t want to feel “guilty” on this trip for enjoying myself and I certainly don’t want to let disordered thoughts interfere with my time with my family.
I know my parents and sister will be understanding and helpful. I truly like eating healthy foods & that will definitely be possible (with indulgences, of course). Life is about memories, not calories. & I refuse to let the latter take those away from me. I am so ready for this and I know it will be a great trip. I would be lying if I said there wasn’t an ounce of anxiety, but at the same time I know my family is so understanding and I know I will be able to enjoy myself! I’m really looking forward to it.
(sidenote: I am laughing SO HARD right now at the commercial for orbit gum
“WHAT THE FRENCH, toast?!” hahaha- sorry, i’m a bit add.. and cheeeesy alwayys
So my questions for you are…
1) How do you deal with vacationing/getting out of your “comfort zone?” Do you feel guilty for indulging on vacations?
2) Do you exercise while you are gone? (This question was inspired by miss Jenny’s post :] )
3) Favorite gum? uhh orbit sweet mint, durrr. Favorite childhood cereal (bc of the kix above!!)? I loved trix!!!
I am writing a post soon about diet soda – be excited haha.
