(After yesterday and my Bakerella wanna be act):
An update! I am very happy with my progress, and I am only one pound from my goal weight....145....so that means that when I weighed in today, the scale said 146! Yay!
Weight lost: 19 pounds
Waist: 35 (4 inches lost!!)
Hips: 39 (2 inches lost!)
Arm: 11 (.5 inches lost, but muscle gained, baby! My massage therapist told me I also had great pecs for a teacher...haha! Yes, I work them!)
Thigh: 20 (2.75 inches gone!)
That's a total of 9.25 inches total...wow. Awesome.
Anyway, my diet has stayed pretty much the same as the last update. I don't eat near as much as I used to (four months ago) but I do treat myself...right? You saw that I did yesterday. And the truth? I didn't eat that cupcake right away. I didn't really want it after I baked it. (what?) And that is totally ok. Because, if I do treat myself, I don't binge later. That's the secret.
I still do lots of strength training with my own body weight while Katie and I watch cartoons at night. And I try to get a walk in a few times per week(I could so be doing better on this, I honestly have been a slacker)...some weeks are better than others. Now I am working on getting Mr. Miata out there with me so we can take Kate on bike rides and walks. I also do some supergirl cleaning sprees, and sheesh, that would work the poundage off anybody...keeping up with the messes this family makes. I promise, we can wreck a house in 30 minutes flat. No kidding. I went to bed last night just flat exhausted. At 10:15. That's when I sat for the first time yesterday.
Anyway, my fruit loves...still strawberries and bananas...love them for breakfast with whole wheat raisin bread and peanut butter. Or, I mix one egg, one little bit of shredded cheddar, a few tablespoons of milk, and pop that in the microwave. Yum. Today I added a crumbled strip of fully cooked bacon. Double yum. Lunch is something quick, and sometimes it's not the best, but then others it's applesauce and a little bit of last night's dinner. Dinner as usual... whatever my family likes, but that is not really a bad thing. (We had baked chicken and vegetables last night) I try to pile on and eat the vegetables before anything else.
Pictures this week some time. I promise. I took one of me in my super cute nightgown, but I decided that...maybe not. Ha! It's too big now anyway. Yay!
