Freaked you out a little? No I am not stopping on my cool blogging streak, the farewell is to my good friend chocolate. Tomorrow I am starting a challenge at the gym and part of it is going back on the crazy diet. I am not terrified like I was last time, because I've done it once and survived, so that's good. And I had a lot of success with it, so I have high hopes for this time around. In fact I even had to go buy new pants again this weekend, which is great motivation to keep going! But I will admit that tonight all I can think about is how hard that second day is and how much I crave the chocolate when I can't have it.... Excuse me, I had to wipe the drool off my keyboard there.
Okay, so I need to work on staying focused on how much better I feel and the positive changes I am seeing, instead of feeling deprived.
1) For instance, I was in the bath the other day and happened to glance down at my leg. I looked again and thought, "What is that?! What is wrong with my leg?" So I looked at my other leg and realized that it was just my calf muscle. You can actually see them now. I have definition! I was equally proud and relieved that I didn't have some sort of strange growth on my leg.
2) Another positive, I was just realizing this weekend that I haven't had heartburn in months now! I had been popping Tums on a regular basis since I was pregnant with Lila, but not once since I've started eating better and working out.
3) What I want my next NSV (non-scale victory) to be, I have only a few pounds to go until the weight on my driver's licence is no longer a lie! It will be nice to no longer have that one on my conscience.
So cheer me on my friends, I will need it as I adjust back to living on chicken and steamed veggies for the next six weeks...
