Just a little update is that I have made it to the gym Monday through Wednesday this week for 30 minutes each day on the elliptical. Well, yesterday I had to use the recumbent bike because the elliptical was being used. The gym is closed now until Monday. We thought about going to the gym together at the military base, but woke up to ice today, so we may stay in. I will have to do a DVD if I want to exercise.
I've continued to bake cookies and only had one or two for the entire day each day. Even when I felt like munching on chocolate I limited myself to counting out 10 M&Ms. I'm pretty sure I've been eating beyond full during dinner each night, so that is at the top of my "to work on" list for future weeks.
Honestly, I've felt pretty proud of my endeavors, but I'm a little frustrated as well.
I weighed myself on Monday after my weekend out of town and I had maintained my loss last week. Then both yesterday and today I weighed myself and I was up 1.5 pounds.
I should've just not looked at the scale until after the holiday, because it's threatening to ruin my mood. However, I'm making up my mind to just keep plugging along, because I've been planning for a few weeks that after Christmas it's back to weight-loss normal for me.
So, it's been a crazy, busy week, but I'm enjoying myself immensely and now I'm ready for the big day tomorrow!
