No food will EVER taste as good as being skinny FEELS!
This has been my mantra for the past week. Big Fat Pat on the Back for me...I have been AMAZING! Go Me!! As you all know the diet started on Monday. Basically I had a Healthy Choice or a Smart One every single day for lunch AND dinner. Usually a fruit for breakfast. I know, it sounds pretty boring but I am trying to spend the first couple weeks shrinking my stomach and getting use to NORMAL sized portions. Something that I am SO not good with! It was a pretty tempting week in the office as well. Let's see, Monday was catered from an AMAZING pasta place her in the Lou...didn't touch it. Wednesday was Pizza Hut pizza and Pasta...didn't touch it. Thursday was a catering company that brought in pasta, chicken and all sorts of other stuff...didn't touch it. Friday was Chevy's, I had a few chips with salsa. This doesn't even count the doughnuts, bagels, and treats that are brought in on an hourly basis. I didn't touch ANY of it!!
I also made it to the gym Mon, Wed, and Friday before work. I actually love walking in there at 6am. You get to be known as a regular, in there with all the other crazies who only have time to fit the gym into their schedule BEFORE work. One of these days I am going to get the courage to join in on the 5:45 spin class. They are always going at it when I walk in...it's awfully intimidating though. I just take my work clothes and shower and get ready there. It is amazing how peaceful and enjoyable the getting ready process is. Could it be because there are no kids?! Surely not! Even though the kids are usually still in bed when I leave for work, there is always the worrying of waking them. I will be weighing in tomorrow morning. Don't worry, good or bad, I'll keep you posted.
We have had a pretty tame weekend. Went to a birthday party today, going to see Christmas lights tonight. I just wanted to share a few pics of the kiddos. Leila is at the stage where she is pulling herself up on EVERYTHING then doesn't really know what to do. She is SO dramatic!! I have NO idea where she gets that. Malakai has just been an angel lately. He must be really trying to impress Santa. He wrote me a letter this morning, well he dictated and daddy wrote, and he told me he loved me more that Mr. Incredible. Now that is love! He also said I was prettier than a flower...for some reason I am thinking that was Josh's line :)
Best thing since I last blogged: Getting my Malakai back...I missed the little stinker
Worst thing since I last blogged: Having to work SO hard at self-control!
