I sat and got my hair done last night--anyone with ethnic hair understands how long that can take--took me a total of 3 hours. It looks really cute today. I had it done before but didn't like it, but this girl did good this time. I'm feeling good and it was worth the 3 hours and my butt feeling numb
I didn't get to bed until after 11 last night, which is late for me. I've been going to sleep around 9
because of my new schedule. When the alarm went off this morning, I did not want to get up. But I did, and I hopped on my elliptical. This is so different from the "old" me. The "old" me would have layed in bed until time passed by and closed my eyes. The "new" me hops right up even if I am tired. I got a good 30 minute work-out in, I'm very proud of me.
The scale is not being friendly. I'm not sure why. I haven't done anything different, but that's 'ok'. I'm 'ok' with it because I know there is no way I can gain weight eating and exercising this way. I also must remember my body is not a mathematic equation, so I don't lose weight like clock work. It's hard to tell myself that sometimes, but it is the truth.
I'm wearing jeans today at work. We get to wear jeans once a month to work, and my jeans are feeling lose. They feel so good. It may be time to invest in a belt. I have came to the conclusion that I have dropped about one dress size. So all my clothes are starting to look big on me. I need to drop 1 more dress size so that I can fit into the next smaller size close in my closet. I can't wait until that happens.
I'm feeling good. I'm in a really great place. I can look into the future and see myself doing this for the rest of my life, without it being scary. My husband, went to get something fast food to eat last night and asked if I wanted a salad. I almost said "yes" but then I remembered how good my salad would taste, so I declined. Man, I'm loving my life right now. I've never been so at peace about a "diet" plan per say--even though it is a lifestyle change
I wish you all the best. And remember you never fail unless you stop trying. Take one day at a time, sometimes one meal at a time. And Keep on keepin on
