HYC Check In

Time to check in again! This week was a little wonky, eating wise. I think it started with spending the weekend at my Mom’s house and then eating out Sunday evening, then returning to my regular schedule, but without having had the time to prepare my meals for lunch as I prefer. I’m learning that I crave the security of planning my meals. Which is odd, I think, because what is the big deal of going to the salad bar at lunch time, you know? I think I like knowing exactly what I’m eating and making the right choice. Then I had an additional two nights of eating out – and I had drinks at both. At least I made my exercise schedule, well, with the exception of the racquetball debacle. I’m staying off the scale until mid-July. A couple weeks after TOM is over and done with, and then I’ll be ready. I’m digging this weigh in schedule.

In other news, I went on a shopping trip this weekend and found 2 lovely dresses – both in a size 16! This is significant, being a former 26. Hooray for summer and smaller sizes!

My goal this next week is to not over-do the eating, prep my lunches and plan my dinners, and push my physical limits at the gym. Have a great week!

Wow, those size 16's must have felt good! I recently got invited to lunch at the last minute and had to abandon my carefully packed/planned bento box, it left me properly grouchy for the rest of the day. Even though I know I can eat the same kind of things going out I don't like to leave it to chance when I feel like I'm on a roll just in case it changes that feeling.

I like being able to have preplanned meals as well. It makes it much easier, less anxiety.

Yaay for new clothes AND new sizes!

I think I understand about the lunches. For so long, I was NOT in control, and now it bothers me sometimes when I move outside my control zone. We can handle it, no doubt, but it's still uncomfortable.

Hope you have a mah-velous week!
