I know that a ton of this weight issue I’m having right now is due to the hormone imbalance I’ve got going on. I mean, having a period every 17 days is kind of hell on a woman’s sweet tooth, you know?
However, I watched myself last week and I’m happy to report I’m back down to 194.5.
I did the gym twice and ate well during the day time. We had relatively healthy dinners and I didn’t over-do it on anything. Not majorly, at least.
I mean, there were cookies. And some ice cream. And wine. And pasta. (Okay, OKAY, so maybe I overdid it on the sweets.)
In the grand scheme of things, I think I managed my portions pretty well. (I stopped at TWO Samoa knockoffs, people. Do you know how hard that is? And I DID manage to say “no” to a Turtle Caramel Nut milkshake yesterday, so that shows I’ve got SOME willpower.)
The wedding in which I’ll be wearing the red
satan satin dress is in two weeks. So is my 5 year wedding anniversary. And so is the start of Friday pool days with the ladies.
Do we think I can drop 5 pounds by then so some of this weight will get OFF OF MY CHEEKS?
The ones on my face, y’all. The ones on my face.
The plan this week is to go to the gym AT LEAST three times. At least. Maybe 4 if I can swing it. But Dan’s out of town for the second half of the week, so 4 times might be an impossible goal. It will also be easier to eat well while he’s out of town because I don’t feel compelled to cook a huge meal when he’s not here.
Those two things should help, but I need some motivation. Do you have any to spare?
