So far, so good.
Three weeks in and I’m down exactly 10 pounds. I’m speechless. I don’t know how it works but I’m not complaining. I wore REAL jeans last week. With a zipper! Not leggings. I couldn’t believe it. I can wear my rings again. There are shorts in my closet from two summers ago that fit. It’s like getting a new wardrobe!
Pretty much everything worked this week. We made a surprise trip out of town to visit our daughter last Friday night and ended up having dinner at a wonderful Italian restaurant. That was followed by two nights of gaming with friends and making good food choices.
Grilled chicken and fish are my new BFF. I know more healthy recipes for vegetables than you can shake a stick at. And I turned down french fries last night. We’ve been eating a lot of chicken and fish since I had my thymectomy in March, and thanks to using a meal delivery service (Hello, Martha Stewart & Marley Spoon!) it’s even easier to control portion sizes and make healthier choices.
On the exercise front, we were able to fit in a couple of outdoor runs. In addition, we’re working on renovating two rooms in our house and moving furniture between three different rooms. The joys of the empty-nester! 13/10 would recommend.
What Didn’t Work
I think I’m finally back “on schedule” after the 4th of July holiday and working an extra day at an orientation event. I am a creature of habit, and when my routine gets out of whack it drives me nuts. I’m working on being a little more flexible, I promise!
The Plan for Next Week
Second verse, same as the first. Stay active, drink water, eat better, sleep well. I finished a six-week wellness challenge at work last week and won a few cool prizes, one of which was this shirt. I think it will be my new mantra!
