Day 2. Am I seriously doing this???
So I promised I would post a picture..... My husband really laughed when I asked him to take my picture tonight...he said " are you really going to do this?" I said "hell yes" why would I not...why would I try to hide the reality... Am I ashamed ? Not really...I know what got me here...and know what I have to do about it. I am just focused on the end result....focused on putting in front of me everyday what I am and what I look like instead of ignoring the situation. It only makes me work harder to look at it and know I REALLY REALLY want to buy a pair of designer jeans at the end of these 6 months! lol.....
Here are the stats:
Arms 14.25 inches
chest 43.50 inches
belly 43.00 inches
hips 43.75 inches
thighs 26.25 inches
calves 16.00 inches
(I have decided I will do pictures and measurements every month to measure the progress)
It's day two....! Ok...so I have a major headache and am not in the best of moods today. I don't know if it is lack of sugar or lack of caffeine!lol... Today was a great day. We started with a nice lunch at the Ram with the family. Instead of my usual appetizer and full meal...I decided on a small cup of soup and half of sandwich...and surprisingly I was just as satisfied and full! Still going strong on drinking water...Lot's of water! After lunch we spent the day cleaning and organizing...again..keeping busy and mind off of food! Then came the trip to my favorite store in the world...none other than TARGET! I had to run and get some more storage bins...let me tell you...it was SOOO hard not to grab a diet coke and a pack of peanut butter m&m's at the check out. What the hell, why do they do that? They put all the chocolate and soda's so you can stare at them when you are waiting in line...then I have to slap myself and get back in check! So I realized tonight it was hard...i had gotten so busy working I hadn't eaten in hours..and was getting really irritable... Luckily we had gone to the grocery store today and bought just our meal for tonight (we have yet to go shopping since our trip home...i am trying to plan out meals for the week and then shop...)and I bought a light Cesar salad kit...and remembered that i had frozen shrimp in the freezer...and walla! a fast and easy meal for 400 calories. I really have to get used to making meals and slowing down...it's so easy just to grab what's convenient and it's usually the bad stuff! So far a good day overall....tomorrow it's of to finally start exercising!
