Healthy Living with
post today but I don't have much to say about it right now so I'm going to do a couple random thoughts and tell you about my weigh in.
- I lost another 1.4 pounds this week. For those of you who are counting, (I sure am,) that's a total of 34.8! Pretty close to 35 if I do say so myself. Lots more to go but I am feeling great, better than ever. When I pick up The Son who weighs 41.5, it's amazing to think that I was carrying almost an extra "him" around with me. Unreal...
- I'm on week six of my Couch to 5K plan and I've been running 5K each time I run. I can't seem to beat my best time of 39:14 but I'm still running and that's all that matters to me. I'm staying on the program though and I think soon, I'll be able to beat that (very slow) best time. I will say, the running is SO much easier as I lose the weight. I'm feeling very fit for a "big" girl.
- I'm a little panicky about my healthy eating on our Disney trip. Because we have a kitchen, we will be eating all of our breakfasts in the room. That will help me a lot. I also have healthy snacks that I am bringing, but eating dinner out every night is scary to me. I hope that I can stay on track. I will be exercising in addition to walking all over the parks so as long as I don't gain, I'll be pleased.
- Did you know that when you go out to eat, they butter your meat? Yes, Butter. Your. Meat. I don't mean that pat of butter they put on top of the steak after it's cooked, I mean butter, as it's cooking. I also don't just mean steak, they do it on chicken, fish, all kinds of stuff. Just something to keep in mind... ask when you order. I know I will be! (This is according to Miss Phyllis our nutritionist for my weight loss group and so far she hasn't steered me wrong so I believe it! No wonder everything tastes so damn good when you go out!)
Have a great day everyone. Stay healthy and enjoy Spring!
