I am still moving down on the scale and that is a great thing! I am a little nervous about next week since it will be my special time of the month but hopefully any damage will be small. I am a little late on the weigh in but that is because we were unexpectedly blanketed with snow last friday and I have been at home with the kids since then. I am so close to my first mini goal that I can barely stand it and it is taking all my will power not to get on the scale everyday to see how I am doing. I have to limit myself or it starts to dictate my moods and what I eat. So I am a once a week weigh in type of girl.
Week in evaluation:
1. Getting better at the whole water thing. I noticed that I am able to handle more water in the evenings than the mornings so I have adjusted my drinking schedule.
2. I discovered that if I eat it really slowly then I can have a piece of turkey sausage for breakfast in the mornings. This is helpful and also keeps me full until lunch. I was having a problem with the shakes not keeping me full for as long as solid food does.
3. Pushing myself harder- I need to get better at pushing myself harder during workouts. It is so easy to convince myself that once I hit a certain time I can get off instead of going just a little longer to extend the time I am doing cardio. I am going to start working on that.
4. I am getting better at slowing down while I eat but it is still a task that I have to focus on. I am hoping that over time it will become a more natural thing to chew, take small bites and wait between bites. That has to be the most frustrating thing so far.
Overall, I am still doing pretty well since the second fill. I have lost 10 pounds in 2 weeks and even though that kind of loss doesn't last long it was still a great leap off of that plateau that I was stuck on for so long. I am hoping to keep a 1-2 lbs weekly loss. I just hope that my period agrees with me.
