I was ordering a skirt from old navy and I selected a size 18. I decided I better try on a skirt I have first because all mine are XL. I pulled out this jean skirt I hadn't worn since early in my pregnancy with Will, looked at the size and though "no way". Put it on, zipped it, and it fit! Here's a pic.
See, I'm very excited because even though 14 is still not where I want to be, I'm seeing results quickly!! And to think, if I were still dieting...starting stopping starting stopping I wouldn't be working out. Which is what is giving me results!
It's been 11 days no dieting. I know I didn't lose 2 sizes in that short time but maybe 1!! I still feel really good mentally. I'm looking into calories zig zagging and I have to really watch that I don't get the diet mentality again. I've been faithful to log my food every day. It's becoming a habit that I do. I'm very happy because I know I'm not on a diet. Hard to explain. But it's kinda like when someone tells you, you should do something but the rebel in you doesn't want to because they suggested it even though it's a good idea. But if YOU thought of it yourself, then well, it's a BRILLIANT idea! Lol.
This week in swam on Monday, Body Pump Tuesday, Wednesday I walked/ran at the park with the two littles for 47 mins
I SOOOOO LOVE BODY PUMP. OMGosh I feel so rad when I do it. Even though when I look at myself I'm
Like "Ah! That's scary! Gosh...I'm white. Ew my stomach." But I just look at the teacher and put all the negative thoughts away. Upped my weights both days this week. Progress :) and I'm not as sore. More progress.
I have food issues I need to work out, but step one: I'm aware of them now. One is over eating. With out thinking I eat way passed full, and even feel sick sometimes from it. Why? I'm not totally sure. Lots of reasons I think. I eat in a hurry and don't realize I'm full until passed full, I'm use to finishing my plate and eating as much as I can because tomorrow starts the diet, and most of all, I snack while cooking/food prepping. Very bad habit! I've noticed lately that I'm not even hungry anymore when we sit down to eat because I've been snacking and tasting too much. Wow! But then I'll eat my dinner because, well, everyone else is eating and I just worked hard to make this meal.
Gosh this stuff is embaressing to write. I KNOW millions of Americans have food issues like over eating. I mean, %60 of America isn't over weight by NOT eating. But somehow I still feel alone in these issues. Doesn't matter cause I'm putting it all out there now. I am working through them and will come out healthy.
Praying every morning for God's help to: 1. Make good food choices
2. Stay with in my calories
3. To resist sugar cravings better
I need Him. And I can't believe I've waited so long to tap into my Father's Almighty helping resources.
