A Week In Review
Even though I didn't go back to meetings until Tuesday, I technically "recommitted" to WW on Sunday, and since then:
I have prepared every single meal except for one lunch and one dinner.
I have drank nothing but coffee, water, and 2 glasses of wine (Wednesday night)
I've had oodles and oodles of fruits and vegetables all week.
I started taking a new (non-chewable) multi-vitamin.
I woke up and got out of bed at 5:30 AM on four out of five work days to hit the treadmill before work (and yesterday's rest day was intentional).
I have slept soundly every night.
I have resisted donuts in two meetings and bagels in another.
I have also eaten some ice cream, a little bit of dark chocolate, and some chips -- enough to keep cravings at bay.
And this morning, the scale was down 3 lbs.
Last night I downloaded a bunch of new music off of iTunes and transferred my whole library to my iPhone (yeah, I know, I don't know what it took me that long). It means I drove to work listening to fun, poppy, energetic music, and have some earbuds in right now at my desk -- and I'm reminded again how much music inspires me to live the best life possible.
We are in the midst of a hot and humid streak here, but this morning -- beautiful out, blue sky, sun, and Maroon 5 on my stereo - all I could think about was going for a long, leisurely run.
My foot is about 95% back to normal, so I think I'm a week or so away from being about to do that, but I can't wait.
Tonight - a kids birthday party (for our ring bearer!), complete with pizza, beer, and water balloon fights (what's the over/under that my husband ends up on the slip n' slide with the kids?).
Tomorrow, a much-needed hair appointment at 9 AM, and then a day of yard / house work. Sunday, more of the same. And then -- starting Monday -- one week left to finalize the house for market.
Tune in Tuesday for the official results.
Off and running,
