Still holding strong on the no alcohol or soda front! I gave up alcohol for Lent one year, which is roughly six weeks. That is the longest I have ever gone without (since being of legal age 😊) except of course for the nine months of pregnancy. I have not seen big movements on the scale, but my clothes are fitting better and I feel so STRONG when I work out. That is huge in itself! I feel like we often get caught up on that number on the scale. I am guilty of this. I keep reminding myself that success in Body Back can be measured in so many other ways than weight!
In case you haven’t read my previous blogs -there is a theme here -, plan, plan, plan! Just tonight, I went to make dinner and realized I was out of eggs. I am literally never out of eggs, I don’t even know how that happened. It is early in the week and I have a meal plan written and shopped for. This made it extremely easy to substitute a different healthy meal for tonight. Two months ago, that would have been a wonderful reason to order completely unhealthy take-out. I love that my new habits are setting me up for success each week!
GIRL. SCOUT. COOKIES. The struggle is real. I avoided them this week like the plague. They are still in my house and it’s very hard to forget that, but I am😊! I’m skipping a social event this week that is centered around wine and cheese. This is so difficult for me, but I know there will be similar events after Body Back is over. I didn’t come this far to only come this far!
Less than 2 weeks to go! I got this!
