Hello there and Happy Saturday! You know what time it is. Weigh-in time. I'm soooooooo incredibly happy to tell you that this week was a 3 pound loss week. Yay!
Although I did everything pretty much to the letter this week....food, workouts, water...something else is really helping me out. Want to hear? Come closer… I'm pretty sure I'm in the Green Zone! If being in the GZ means that I can go for long periods of time without even thinking about food, and be satisfied with a very small protein-packed meal when I do get hungry....I think that's where I must be. I want this to last and last and last. I'm especially grateful that I'm feeling this way with Christmas less than 3 days away.
Tomorrow is going to be my baking day. Strawberry cake balls, iced sugar cookies...you name it. It's all going down in my kitchen mañana. I'm hoping to maintain some semblance of self-control and not have too many bites, licks, or tastes. But what the hell. I've got to do a little quality control, right? And besides all that... I no longer live with the fear that I won't get back on track.
We have Christmas at my mom and dad's on the 23rd, and then John and I always go out to dinner by ourselves on Christmas Eve. That's pretty much the extent of our celebrating. I can definitely give myself a couple of days to eat a little bit of exactly what I want.
Our Christmas gift to each other this year is that we are going away for a couple of days to a luxury treehouse in Northern Arkansas. Luxury. Treehouse. I am so beyond excited I cannot even tell you. I'll definitely be posting some pics of that when we get back.
I hope everyone is having a restful, relaxing weekend. See how I'm funny??? I know you're probably doing exactly what I'm doing...running around buying last minute gifts, grocery shopping, cooking, and cleaning. Oh well...it'll all be over way too soon and then we'll just wish it was Christmas again.
Thanks for reading. :)
