Almost done! I’m really excited to not focus so much on food, with the understanding that my eating habits are permanently changed. I will be cooking differently, and my tastes have changed. I watched R cook eggs for him and his little sister using butter instead of oil, and I had to scrape off the residue like I haven’t done in three weeks. Made me stop and think about how that one switch must be affecting my insides. I cleaned out the pantry as part of my de-junking challenge and got rid of the candy. Baby asks for grapes, cucumbers, or apples for snacks and he sneaks my hummus if I’m not paying close attention to him. I made chocolate chip cookies for something, and the kids have not eaten them (I’m putting the in the garbage tonight), R has asked me if certain things we are eating are healthy, and K even tried some food combinations she wasn’t thrilled about and surprised herself by liking them. I think they are more aware also, and that makes me happy.
Sadly, my weight and measurements are not what I was anticipating, and I’m struggling a bit.
Weight: 131 pounds
Thigh 21.5 inches
Waist 30 inches
Arm 10.25 inches
Reflecting, I think I did my best eating this week since I actually prepped food, but I haven’t been good about adding in the exercise pieces. I need to focus on making time to add regular exercise into my schedule.
