I feel like this morning has been a little nuts. I didn't sleep all that great last night...lots of things running through my mind. Don't you hate that? Nothing in particular, just stuff. Then, my "alarm clock," AKA, Avery who normally wakes up at 5:30 on the dot, has slept in the past 3 mornings. I actually had to wake her up this morning, which never happens!!!
So, just a little weight loss update. I've been pleasantly surprised with my discipline this week. I've managed to cut out sodas completely with overwhelming success. I've been doing really well at drinking water. I've also done very well at cutting out the carbs. I've not completely cut them out, but the carbs I do intake have been byproducts of healthy things, like milk, although that, too, has significantly decreased. I've had no sweets, no sandwiches, no chips, which has actually not been that hard. I've had lots and lots of salads, boiled eggs, cinnamon almonds, apples, chicken and turkey, yogurt, hummus, and water, water, water.
Although I haven't weighed myself in a couple days, I really don't think I've lost any more pounds. But, I have noticed a big change in how I fit into clothes. My legs are rubbing together as much. My tummy feels (and looks flatter.) I have more confidence when I am walking lately, so that is a great accomplishment for me. Along with all of this, I've managed to put on makeup almost every single day and seem to care a little bit more about how I am presenting myself to the world. Now, onto week 2.
I got P90X last year sometime and was really stoked about doing it. Guess what. I HATE P90X. It's hard and it's boring and it's annoying (that guy's voice and sayings are just like, nails on a chalkboard). But, it works. My diet alone isn't going to get be where I want to be quickly. If I really want to start seeing some results, I am going to have to start exercising, for real. As much as I don't want to, P90X is going to be what will get me there. But I am very motivated to do this and I KNOW this won't be forever. This will be temporary for me. But I need to start burning some real calories. And doing exercises that will get rid of this fat. So, I will start tonight. I know after I do it, I will feel better.
This weekend was fun filled. I only got a few pictures on my phone, so here is what I will leave you with. We spent all day Saturday with my parents. Avery was her normal, amusing, funny, wonderful self. AND we saw X-Men: First Class, which was awesome. Avery also wore the cutest outfit on Sunday to church. She got a beautiful smocked dress for a baby shower and she is just now big enough to fit into it! Have a great Monday, everybody!
