But last Thursday I made a no no that started a train wreak of events...those events led me to this:
CRAZY ASS FOOD UPDATE:
Last Thursday for lunch I decided to get a burrito bowl from Chipolte...my recovering foot got the best of me and I let myself self-loath and self-medicate (and duh I am blaming this on my toe! Why not use a crutch when I have one). Needless to say this led to a vicious cycle of bad eating for four days straight. And the crazy part, I felt like shit. I was full and sick and not really upbeat. I was on a sugary, creamy downward spiral and I knew it had to stop! So Sunday night I realized that never ever ever ever ever again do I not want to keep track of my points. I can eat whatever I want, as long as I own up to it. And the reality is, none of the food I ate was worth being sick and feeling sluggish.
That being said, I only gained .5 pounds so I am still down 11 pounds. that needs to be my motivation to continue on. I also took some photos and am pretty proud of the changes I am already seeing. These will also be motivation to stay strong and stick this out!
This picture is a bit funny looking but the other day Chaz pointed out that my arms were looking thinner. I had not realized this but once he pointed it out, I do see a difference!
And here is a full frontal view (lol)...love saying full frontal!
So this new shape that is beginning to form is of course due to the food I am putting in my mouth but I am making sure to also change up my workout. I go to the gym and while there I run or do the elliptical, but I have realized that I get better stretches and strength training through dvds. they provide instruction that I just can't get at the gym.
And last, I told you about my Nike Free Ones earlier. While here they are in all there glory! I fricken love these shoes!
So next weekend we are having another girls weekend. there will be crazy partying, tons of food and of course alcohol, but I am looking more forward to the challenge of maintaining my eating habits way more then I am looking forward to the junk food! I will focus on my friends and being surrounded by them and while doing so, maybe I will just munch on some carrots!
*Would like to thank my wonderful husband for A. going to St. Cloud, and B. Always saying supportive things that make me melt and feel proud of myself.
*Would also lie to thank Michael for the pic of my new Nike Free Runs...love him and love these shoes!
