It’s late and I’m a teeny bit tipsy. Please give me a pass for my rambling and possible spelling errors. 😉
So, it’s been one week of not stepping on the scale. One week of no binges. I woke up this morning knowing that I could weigh in today and was honestly a little scared. I kept thinking that maybe I shouldn’t. I was worried that if the weight didn’t change or if I had gained a pound (gasp) I would have freaked out and gone back to my dieting ways. Eventually, I pulled the scale out from the closet I tucked it in. I hesitated as I stepped on and literally closed my eyes for 20 seconds before looking down. I lost three pounds! All these years of being restrictive and harping on every single calorie made me crazy. One week of listening to my body and eating what I wanted (within reason) and I lost weight. I wish I knew this 10 years ago! Better late than never at all.
Those 3lbs plus the 2lbs I had already lost from when I initially started the blog made me think that I should try on a pair of jeans that had gotten a little snug. I pulled those suckers out of my closet and slid one leg in. The other followed and they went straight up! Success!!
I did a little happy dance and then got moving because there was a lot I needed to get done today. Before heading out, I made a breakfast of banana stove top oats. I mixed some cottage cheese in for a protein kick. I haven’t made oats on the stove in years! They came out thick and creamy. I forgot how much better they can be when cooked this way.
After eating, I was out of my apartment for the rest of the day. I drove all over creation, trying to hit sales I had heard about. I bought a new plate set, which I ended up ordering online, instead of at the store. I had never seen the line before, but it seemed picked over when I got to Kohls. I decided to come home quickly and order online so that I could still get the sale price. I’m so excited and can’t wait for the package to come! You know I’ll share with ya when it does. 🙂
If you noticed, I didn’t have my usual coffee with my breakfast today. That’s because I knew it was hot out and that I was going to want an iced coffee from Dunkin Donuts. I may have been on a mission for sales, but iced coffee I did have.
Don’t worry. I was parked. 😉
I then hit up Whole Foods. I was only going to get my favorite english muffins, but I ended up with two bags worth of goods. Here’s what I ended up getting along with the english muffins:
I already got into the fruit this afternoon, as an addition to my snack. I’ve been eating so much frozen fruit that I forgot how delicious fresh berries can be. I can’t wait to use them tomorrow with my pancakes!!
Plus, some cherries for good measure. I mean, someone’s got to try them to make sure they’re sweet, right?
Tonight, I headed off to a bbq. Sadly, no pictures were taken. Only the person I went with knows of my blog right now. I promise I’ll be more comfortable with it in due time. Just know that yummy food and drinks were consumed. As a result of those drinks, this chick needs to head to bed.
I hope you had a wonderful Saturday!
