When I stepped on the scale this morning, I was SUPER stoked. Not only had I lost a little over three pounds from the week prior (despite having leftover birthday cake for breakfast and dessert for three days straight), but I am now 40 pounds lighter than I was on May 30. Hooray!
And my favorite part of the whole thing is I didn’t do any crash diets (though I did do a three-day cleanse back in August; but that doesn’t count because the calories in the meals and drinks still put me over my calorie intake for the day) and I didn’t try any crazy pills or supplements. I swear, those things are the fastest way to gain BACK all the weight you lost.
This was all done by eating in moderation (I still enjoy cake, queso and breakfast tacos when available) and working out regularly. I think the trick is just prioritizing eating right and working out in your life. So instead of watching TV, I go work out (or watch my show the next day on Hulu on the elliptical). Justin and I spend time together during the week by doing boot camp (instead of bumming on the couch). And we set realistic goals for ourselves and cheer each other on.
Anywho, I’m by no means done, but this is sort of a huge day for me, which I plan to celebrate by going to cycling class this evening
