Wednesday Weigh In
I can’t decide how I feel about today’s weigh in. I weigh exactly the same as I did last week.
The good: even though the scale didn’t respond, I know I had a much more conscious week this week. I really thought carefully about what I chose to eat and drink. I (mostly) cut down on my wine and made different choices on my snacks than the usual popcorn and nuts. I filled my fridge with fresh fruit and farmers market vegetables and I could tell the difference in how I felt after making good, solid, healthy choices in my meals and snacks. I also have been much better about getting up early to run/walk and I feel so much better when I’ve gotten my workout done before the kids are up. It just sets the whole day up right.
The bad: I still slipped up out with friends on Sunday. I was very careful with my food, but even still, the food that was available wasn’t perfect. I definitely drank too much and felt like garbage on Monday. I did much better yesterday only to have a bit of a stressful evening. Where did I end up? On my sofa watching Bravo, drinking wine and eating veggie sticks (well, at least it wasn’t popcorn).
The verdict? I am going to call it progress, even though the scale didn’t respond. I have reminded myself how great I feel when I am in control of my eating. I have tried foods I haven’t eaten in a while and realized I really do like them (salads, apples, etc). The trick is to stick to the healthy foods that I really enjoy eating. I don’t need to force myself to love spaghetti squash, it just isn’t going to happen. But I can eat eggs, fruit, yogurt, fresh foods that are in season right now. I feel full, satisfied and no regret. That’s the path forward.
So for now, I’m keeping on.
