I don't know about your neck of the woods but it has been one HOT week here in Massachusetts!! (hmm..Imagine that - hot..in July.... ; ) My primary focus this past week was keeping cool. Lots of visits to my sister's pool, quick play time in the yard and then back into the AC. Is it just me, or does the heat zap you of your energy? I feel as if I've been moving in slow motion.
I tried some new products/recipes this week and returned to some old favorites. I've been on an 'ants on a log' kick at afternoon snack time (that's celery with low fat peanut butter and raisins in plain speek). I also hadn't had a veggie burger in ages - it tasted great! My favorite is Morning Star Mushroom Lovers. I am also really enjoying watermelon. Last year was such a ho-hum year for the super juicey fruit, but this year it's as flavorful as ever and I've been inhaling a plethera of it!!
So do you remember how last week I said that I was only 1 pound away from reaching 40 pounds? And do you remember me saying that I was so motivated to lose that one pound? Well you wouldn't know it by the way I ate this past week. Not that I was terrible - but I certainly did indulge more than I thought I would. I also was not dilagent in my tracking. Now I'm off to go see what the scale has to say...
I've stayed the same. Better than a gain! I try to say to myself that I'd rather take a long time and lose 60 pounds than lose 75 quickly and put it all back on again. The way I've been losing is a lifestyle I can mantaine. I'd rather lose 60 permanently than more only to gain it all back and then some. Hopefully I can reach the 40 pound mark next week!
It's time to bring my son to his summer program.
