Fit Mommy Challenge Week 8
Week 8 already? I can not believe it. It has flown by so quickly that I don't think I'm ready for it to be over! This week hasn't been one of my best (again) but it wasn't too bad either.
As far as exercising went I worked out three of the five days. I think I am starting to enjoy it...did I just say that out loud? lol I find that I am thinking about working out if I haven't done it yet and really want to get it done.
My water intake was a little low, only about 50-55 oz a day. Not bad, but not where I want it to be. I haven't been having much soda so that's a good thing. Even when I have had the soda, Pepsi is my weakness, I haven't finished the glassful. Nor have I wanted to. Yay!
I have been sleeping not so peacefully. Steven has been sick and so I have been up and down with him and sleeping on the couch a lot of nights. I have been trying to nap a little in the afternoons to make up for it though.
I am most excited about my food portions, though. I have noticed an almost complete turn around in my attitude towards food. I am no longer eating to make me feel better but to fuel my body. I am sharing meals with my husband or just ordering a meal and putting some in a box right away(if we are out). I am not snacking between meals but if I get a snack I am looking at the serving size and having only that much. I don't find myself thinking about food all day long.
I am loving being free from the pull of having to eat until I pop. Of needing food sitting in my belly to make me feel good.
I don't need food except to fuel my body. And I don't need that much.
This challenge has been so amazing. I have loved participating in it and I love the results I am having. Not only the weight loss but the whole attitude change. Not that I am not loving that 12 pounds are gone, I do! Plus, I am almost in a smaller pant size than when I started. heehee
I don't know if I will make my goal, but I'm gonna try!
