Just a little rambling..

I skipped my weigh in last week for two reasons...monthly visitor..enough said and my husband and I had our second year wedding anniversary needless to say we ate well at a nice steakhouse.  I tried to do well and don't think I did to bad.  I had the 7 oz sirloin, baked potato butter on the side, and house salad with ranch on the side. We stayed in the same hotel we stayed at on our wedding night and the front desk sent us up a special treat.  Chocolate covered strawberries. 

  I had some of course and definably don't feel bad about eating them. I am deciding what changes I need to make one day at a time.  One of my decisions is not to cut out everything I love.  I know if I do then I will fail.  I have read so many  weight loss blogs and they all have something in common.  They didn't deprive themselves from what they wanted.  If I want to eat at a steakhouse and enjoy good food. I will. But only for occasions like my wedding anniversary.  If I am craving something sweet I will have it, just in a smaller portion. 

This week I started the 30 day shred again.  Fun fun.  I spent 20 minutes with Jillian then spent 30 minutes on the treadmill.

The photo doesn't do justice to the sweat and redness of my face!

 After that since it was nice out I went out and played a game of HORSE with my son and attempted to teach my daughter how to ride her bike without training wheels.

Tuesday was 30 day shred again and treadmill afterwards.  Wednesday I was super sick with a virus my children passed onto me. I went home from work yesterday still feeling a little under the weather but I still pushed through a 20 minute treadmill walk.  Enough to work up a nice sweat.  Tonight I am looking forward to another round with Jillian and the treadmill.

Little at a time

I am happy to report I have lost another 2 pounds this past week. Since "resetting" I have lost a total of seven pounds.  Slow but steady.  I have been measuring out portions, eating more veggies, trading out regular pasta for wheat pasta and switching regular potatoes to sweet potatoes.  Small steps can really add up.  I have been walking on my treadmill every night.  I'm feeling good. 

I have decided not to tell anyone about my weight loss this time around.  Hopefully I will get those compliments everyone wants to hear "have you lost weight?"
