Ok first of all - SUPERSTAR!! I hit my 10% goal! I am beyond excited and proud of myself. I was so nervous when it was time to weigh in yesterday (incidentally, we were camping and still went to the meeting). When I got on the scale, I actually held my breath. And when she said "down 2.4", I wanted to scream! Last week, I missed 2 work outs, which totally bummed me out. And, actually I was surprised that I was so upset about not being able to work out. Careful meal planning and drinking lots of water really makes a difference.
As I said, we were camping this weekend. Good thing about being in a small group, easier to control the food consumption. I brought healthy fruit (from the fabulous Edible Arrangement I got for Mother's Day) and veggies and we planned our main menus carefully. I counted everything I ate and made sure I had plenty of water. I even skipped alcohol, which is hard for me when we camp.
With camping season upon us, we have several trips planned already. I know that when we go with our bigger group, it might be harder. I will make sure that I pack lots of really good-for-me foods. But, I know what we usually eat and it will be extrememly difficult to stay on plan. Seeems silly to worry about this already - it's weeks away. But, I think this is my life now.
Happy Mother's Day!
