I didn't do anything drastic. I just started following my points again. I started drinking my water again. Heck I even managed to eat chinese food and 1 1/2 portugese egg rolls over the weekend... hehe. BUT, I made better choices. Instead of eating the kung pao chicken with fried rice, or the pork lo mein that I LOVE with the mega sized bowl of wonton soup. I ordered beef and broccoli with white rice and only had a half cup of rice, and then I splurged and had a shrimp egg roll. They totally rock! So I really didn't have to kill myself to make a better choice.
Anyway, today I cooked a LOT! A very dear friend had her baby this weekend and is supposed to be coming home tomorrow. I know how tough it is to settle into the new baby cycle and all that fun stuff associated with it, I figured I would make some dinners for her and her hubby. So this morning I was able to throw together 2 shepards pies, 3 chicken shepards pies, and 4 lasagnas... sounds like the partridge and a pear tree, doesn't it?! I'm also going to make a banana bread for them, but not just any banana bread. I am making the Banana Dream Muffins into a loaf... these are amazing! So I figure I can't steal a piece of the loaf, right??
With all of this temptation, I've been trying to tell myself why I want to lose the rest. It's tough. I go from the shallow... Wanting to look hot! To the deep... want to feel better, sleep better, etc. Figured if I made my list, it would help. What keeps you going?
- Fit in my size 8 cargo pants
- Look the part at work
- Prove to myself that it can be done, damn it!
- Not have to suck in my stomach for every pic
- Sleep better
- Run a 5K without walking
- Not feel so tired all of the time
- Feel sexy... lol - sorry, it's true!
- Teach my girls better eating habits
- Motivate more people to get in shape
That's my list. I know that there are a hell of lot more, but some are too petty to write. I hope that this help a little. Have a great new year!! So far, I am liking it!!
