It is the end of my first week! With the exception of St. Patrick's Day (which, in all honesty, could have been WAY worse) I have done awesome this week! I went to the grocery store on Sunday and made sure I had everything for every meal I needed for the week. I made all my sandwiches and put all my chicken in marinades. And then every day I had the same thing for breakfast (a granola bar), snack (yogurt), lunch (turkey sandwich on double fiber wheat bread, and sugar free jello), and dinner (grilled chicken with a salad). It was super boring, no variety at all! But, suprisingly, it really suited me. I never had to worry about what I was going to eat and whether or not I took food out of the freezer for dinner. I also stopped drinking soda this week. A LOT easier than I thought it would be! I made a big pitcher of iced tea and have just been drinking that instead.
And the results are:
I have lost 1.8 pounds! And 1/2 inch off of my waist! YAY! Actual success! Now I just need to keep it going and not screw it up! I have a tendency to do really well and feel great and then let one little thing throw me off course for months. NOT THIS TIME! I haven't had any alcohol since St. Patrick's Day, not really a big deal, I know, but usually that is my downfall.
I feel great and I have had some small success! I hope this week goes as well as last week!
