I have to start today by telling you I went to a water park. Yes, I was not really happy with the idea of being on a swimming suit. I still have a lot of weight to lose before I get to the ideal weight. And I do not feel comfortable by the pool. But, something happened. I saw a group of friends I had not seen for a while and they pointed that I was looking great, that they could see the weight loss, etc. Oh yeah, people notices. That was really good for my self esteem. I still wore a cover up, but I felt happier with how things are going.
I really did not behave at eating. I went to a Colombian restaurant to celebrate an early birthday (during the week I will be at work), and I eat more than I should. But you know what? It was my treat for my birthday and I will behave this week with my eating plan.
I got injured. I have been able to walk (limping) but I cannot jog/run. I need to find something that is good for cardio that does not have a heavy impact on my knee (I dislocated my patella). So if you have any ideas, please let me know.
My goals for the week: more water, find a way to be active without pain on my knee and not falling into temptation for birthday treats. Wish me luck on the last one (wink)
How was your week? Any victories?
Thanks for reading!
It is May and it is going to be an awesome month. It is a little challenging for me, because usually with all the celebrations for mother’s day I get a little nostalgic and home sick. And you probably already know I tend to eat when I am sad. So what is my plan? I am going to have lots of healthy snacks available. Baby carrots are going to be my best friend this month!
I have not seen the scale move in two weeks. It is a good thing and a bad thing. It is good that I have not gained weight. But it is bad that I have not lost weight. Yes, my clothes fit me loose, so I am assuming that I might have some water retention.
I have to say I am really learning things. I was at a 5 de Mayo party and I had some tacos, but I only had the meat. No tortillas. It was not as hard as I thought. I guess I am learning to eat. It is the small changes that count.
The air quality has not been the best. We had some wildfires, so walking outside has not been an option. I had been on the elliptical. I do not like it as much, but it helps me stay active.
This week I am going to focus and drink more water and continue with my walks (or elliptical if the air is still bad)
Mother’s day is coming up next week and I want to plan a menu. What type of healthy sweets do you think I should make?
