Today was a good day. Mentally I am in a good place starting this new challenge, so that just helps put me in such a good mood! I went to the gym this morning with my sister, then we met a friend at McDonald's to catch up over coffee :) There is nothing better than girl talk over coffee. After 2 hours though, we were getting sketchy looks from the employees like "don't you ladies have anything better to do?":)
Since I am beginning again, so to speak, I thought I'd weigh in and show you all the damage I have done. I did lose some during my last challenge, but gain that back. I swear I gain weight by looking at food! Anyway, I didn't realize how much I'd gained until this morning......
This is pretty sad and really embarrassing. I am supposed to be "Finding Lori", and this just isn't me. I was hesitant to post this but hey, this is why I am here!
Now for something good......
I think I did pretty well today. I always go over on my sugar but that is so hard!! I didn't snack much today because I was gone most of the morning/afternoon, and when Greg got home from work, we drove in to see our daughter to deliver a porch swing, so I was gone a lot today which helps :)
Anyway, there it is. I am giving myself 2 weeks of seriously tracking. I am not going to weigh in until the 2 weeks are up. Greg and I talked it over and he suggested something fun for the beach, since, you know our pool is gone now, and I've been talking about going to the beach a lot more. (Lake Erie is only less than 5 miles from my house) I've decided that I will buy an new beach bag, and a huge soft beach towel for my reward!! Also, I am not shopping until my 2 weeks are over, and that will make it all the more fun, because shopping is a reward in itself!!
"So, take a deep breath,
pick yourself up,
dust yourself off, and start all over again."
