This week is rough for me. Ethan's birthday party was this past weekend and my husband is travelling on business. I can be easily tempted to make lazy and less healthy food choices when I don't have someone else to feed.
I'm slightly discouraged this week because my measurements aren't changing much. I keep hoping that my waist will shrink faster, but it's sooo slow...and it's frustrating to see. I don't even take measurements every week because I know better, but over the past three weeks, I've only lost 0.25"...a quarter of an inch...ARGH...
I will keep chugging along...doing my crunches or roman chair crunches, focusing on my obliques and doing some mild cardio; fingers crossed that I lose a bit more.
Overall, I feel much better and I know that I look much better. My clothes fit nicely, and I don't feel so self-conscious about how my clothes cling to me.
Something else that I've also noticed, when I eat kind of cruddy foods, then I feel cruddy for DAYS. Whenever I would read in a book or hear some blather about how people feel as bad as the food they are eating, I thought it was a bunch of psychosomatic hooey, but now that I consistently eat healthy, when I deviate too much, I really feel it and it takes a few days of nausea and tummy troubles before I am back to normal. It also makes me realize that I feel pretty good most of the time now, instead of tired and somewhat sluggish.
