Getting back on track
This picture is me doing my pre-meltdown Brittany Spears impression at FAO Schwartz in Ceasar Forum Shops.
Don't you love how a cold can totally knock you sideways, the inability to breathe properly, the lack of interest in preparing food or the inability to exercise as walking up one flight of stairs makes you breathless. Of coure I say that with a massive amount of sarcasm in my voice.
I missed WI last week due to Vegas and I'm heading in tomorrow without having tracked one darn thing this week. I can't say I was bad but there was more juice than water that's for sure. I'm positive I'll see a gain but I'm o.k with that because there were circumstances around it.
I am looking forward to properly breathing again so I can use my brand new spankin' gym membership that I got the day before leaving for Vegas. I'm incredibly thankful for a new season of Biggest Loser. I find that show so inspiring.
Tonight when I get home I'm writing up my grocery list as I haven't been grocery shopping in 2 weeks, it was getting really interesting in terms of food options. My plan is to pick 3 recipes from Eat, Shrink and Be Merry, make them on Sunday, divide into individual portions, label and freeze so I have some options of lunches/dinners that will last awhile. I also want to have 3 breakfast options determined so I can have some flexibility there. I have the groceries for that but I think I need to post it on my fridge with the points values so I can see it at a glance. I have a habit of eating the same thing day in day out in terms of breakfast and lunch.
I was watching X-Weighted last night and for those who didn't know that episode was shot in Calgary. She lost just under 50lbs in 6 months (over winter) by simply watching what she ate and exercising. Paul the host/trainer told her that when eating to think about what that particular food does for her. It's not complicated is it? We all know that but somehow it's so easy to make it complicated. As I watched that show I realized there is absolutely no reason why I couldn't be at goal within the next 6 months. All I need to do is focus on calories in and calories out.
So Saturday morning before going to weigh in I'm going to take my measurements and start a new quest for goal. A brand new page in my tracker is ready as is my activity journal. The past is forgotton and the future is beckoning. Bring it on!
