Questing for Super

This has been a good week. It definitely could have been better, but given my stress and exhaustion levels due to it being the busiest time of the semester, I'm feeling good about what I have managed to do.

I want to work on eliminating processed foods from my diet.
This has been the toughest part this week. I started strong, and brought roasted chicken breast and half a sweet potato for my non-Lean Cuisine lunch last Thursday or Friday. But yesterday and today have been tough - I've never worked anywhere before where people always bring snacks and treats. I need to get better at saying "No, thank you." It's tough, though, when you're tired and stressed and someone sticks a box of cookies under your nose and says "No, really, please, have one." I had one, I logged it in MyFitnessPal, and I'm moving on.

I want to reclaim my 100 pound weight loss milestone.
Despite my cookie eating, I'm doing pretty well so far this week on this one. I am currently 5 pounds away from my 100 pound weight loss milestone. I doubt I'll make it by my birthday (next Wednesday), but I'm very happy at how close I'll be.

Today I was able to wear a pre-pregnancy shirt!

Before:


Today:


It just barely fits, and was big when I wore it before, but I'm letting all that go. All that matters is, I wore it before, and I'm wearing it now. And it's super.

My work is paying off, and it's an inspiration for me to be consistent with my efforts.

I want to become active again.
I did well with this one, too. I worked out Saturday, Sunday, and Monday. I took last night off after an extra stressful day, and I'm ready to get back in there today!

Why do people insist on trying to make others eat? I was at a social event a while back where the theme was bacon. A girl came in, was told where the food was, and then promptly sat down without any food. No less than three people pressed her two to three times each in a ten minute window to get food. I wasn't the one being bothered and I still wanted to knock their heads together. It's hard enough to turn the food down once without having people pester you repeatedly.

Glad you're doing better. You'll reclaim that 100 lbs soon.
