With my new schedule, Friday really doesn’t mean much to me anymore. I’m off on Thursday and Sunday, so I don’t even really have a true Monday either. Well, I guess my Monday is Monday, but you get the point. It’s hard to get readjusted. Next week I will work Monday – Friday because on Saturday, I run my 10k! Then, that will be my last weekend off until the Fall. Crazy Summer schedule. I am going to try and keep up with the blog though, it just may not be every day anymore. I hope you guys understand!
It’s Friday, so that’s weigh in day. Drum roll please!
Yay! That puts me less than a pound away from 50lbs of weight loss since I started last January. I had a good week, good food, good work outs. It was one of those weeks were everything went smoothly. I know they don’t come along often.
Regardless of what my weight is, I’m feeling good about myself and that is what’s important. I took a recent picture to give you guys a recent progression, so, here you go!
49 lbs down! AND I’m wearing a skirt that’s above the knee. I never used to do that! It’s not the greatest picture, the husband is not very good with the camera. I feel healthy and I feel great. I’m enjoying the foods I love and I’m figuring out BALANCE. It’s amazing that I never understood balance and moderation before. Lately people have been telling me that I “inspire” them. I appreciate this so much, but I have to tell you, I never set out to be anyone’s inspiration. I am doing this for me. I do it for the way it makes me feel and I write about it to keep myself accountable. But, if I have inspired someone to live a more balanced life, that really is fantastic.
I just want to reiterate something to you guys and to myself. There is no quick fix, this is hard work. We all have rough days, weeks or even months. Just stick with it, it’s so worth it. Not just because of the way you look (although that helps) but because of the way you feel and the chronic health problems you could be saving yourself from!
One more thing! Last night for dinner, I made for the 2nd time Hungry-Girl’s Outside In Turkey Burgers.
Every time I make this burger I feel as if I’m indulging in some amazingly decadent burger. It’s only 4 WW Points. I love that. I can’t stress to you enough how yummy it is when you bite into the burger and taste all the yummy swiss cheese. PHENOMONAL. I ate it on an Everything Bagel Thin with some roasted asparagus on the side. Make it for dinner tonight! And it case you missed the link the first time, here it is again! Outside-In Turkey Burger!!!
For dinner tonight, I have no plan. I think I might make some Quorn and Qunioa. How many times in your life do you get to eat two foods that start with Q in the same meal? And I think it would be tasty. :)
What are you going to have for dinner tonight?
