Wednesday Weigh In
YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Down 1.2.
Finally I think I have actually broken my laissez faire “It’ll just magically happen because I exercise a lot and mostly eat healthy foods but probably in too large portions” attitude towards getting back to my goals.
This was a good week. I was careful in my choices. Even on Sunday, when we had friends over for dinner after my trail race, I was cognizant of making good choices. There was tons and tons of food and drink. And while I certainly did drink, I steered mostly towards vegetables and nuts and sushi for appetizers and took the smallest possible portions for dessert. I drank tons of water to combat the over indulgence on alcohol the next day, and got right back on track.
Last night was a big test of where I am at mentally with the getting back to goal program. We went out to a Mexican restaurant. Everyone ordered margaritas, which I love. But I said I just wanted to “start out” with water. And then I realized that I was fine, having fun, and didn’t need one. Everyone else had two. I didn’t have any. I split my entree, went light on the chips and left before desserts were being ordered. I left feeling satisfied but not full. I knew I’d be weighing in this morning, and last night could have made this weigh in inspiring or depressing.
But I was in control of that outcome. I made that choice. And it paid off on the scale this morning.
