Surviving Thanksgiving and Week 7 Weigh In

Y’all, I’m not even going to lie. I was nervous about this weigh in. I worked out Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Only 3 times this week!!! CJ was out of town this week, so no PT session and Thanksgiving! Now, I did pull myself out of bed on Thanksgiving morning and I went to the gym. I STRUGGLED through that work out.

Thanksgiving was difficult. I did very well in limiting myself. I did indulge in a glass (or two) of red wine. I limited myself to a half of spoonful of Mac and cheese and a spoonful of cornbread dressing (my favorite). I filled up on turkey (white meat only even though I LOVE dark meat), green beans, and sweet potatoes.

I stayed away from the desserts that I knew were not good for me. I stuck to my upside down pumpkin cheesecake (courtesy of The Hungry Girl).

I shopped a bunch and got a lot of walking in on Friday and Saturday. I was completely lazy on Sunday. So, when I stepped on the scale this morning, I was expecting to see a not so great number. Honestly, I would have been okay with that.

Results: -2 lbs!
TWL: 14.6 lbs

REALLY?!?!? You mean I indulged a little and STILL lost weight? I could hardly believe it!!! Don’t get me wrong, I’m extremely excited. Any weight loss is moving in the positive direction.

I’m noticing that my clothes are fitting better, if not getting a little big. I am starting to get a little nervous because my plateau point is coming. When I tried to lose weight in the past, I would hit 260 and stop. No matter what I tried, nothing worked. I know it’s different now as I do have CJ and I’m pushing myself harder than ever. I am seriously my own worst critic.

I took my first official boxing class of the 8 week course tonight. It was just as good as the first one. I cannot gush enough about how good it feels to strap on some gloves and go to town on a boxing bag. More than that, it’s a fantastic work out!

Small Victories this week: losing weight despite the holiday and my clothes fitting better.
