Week 4 — Home Stretch!

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.
