I hope everyone has had a great Thanksgiving season enjoying time with friends and family and staying healthy. I feel good about my week so far.
On Wednesday I took the day off to cook. I really enjoy cooking and have not really cooked in a long time. Right now, to stay on track I keep my meals as simple and quick as possible so as to keep myself out of the kitchen. So, on Wednesday I cooked as if I were cooking for an army and enjoyed every minute of it.
On Thursday, J-boy and I ate with my family. There were only 8 of us this year, but no less food than in year's past when there were easily 3 times that many. I got very small servings of the foods I really wanted, and didn't eat all of anything. My two nephews that were there and never had a weight problem almost always leave some food on their plates, so I took my cues from them. I also ate dessert.
Yesterday, Friday, I fasted. I needed the mental cleansing of a fast. Today I'm back on the protein drinks.
For my 50 day goals, I'm saying I met all of them.
1. Drink two protein drinks per day. Although, I didn't do this yesterday, I'm still saying I met this challenge, since the challenge is focused on not overeating.
2. Exercise at least 3 days per week. On Wednesday, I even walked to the grocery store. It was a good idea since the parking lot was horrible. I thought it was a little more than 0.5 miles each way or a little over a mile round trip. I was wrong it is 0.9 miles each way, so almost two miles round trip.
3. Lose some amount of weight. I'm still down a pound even after dessert on Thursday.
4. Fill water bottles - check. I am so glad I thought of that. I've done it every off day from work, and I've drunk all of the water every day!! Go me!!
I have the rest of today and tomorrow to enjoy and then it is back to reality on Monday. I'm looking forward to having a good loss next week and finishing out the year strong. J-boy and I have had the calendar out and marked out our parties. So far, they aren't too stacked up and my using the party for a 'meal' strategy should work out fine, since right now we only have two parties and they are actual meals rather than party food.
