Say hello to my best friend and my worst enemy: the Chick-Fil-A peppermint chocolate chip milkshake.
A harbinger of Christmas. And oh so delicious (I’m cuckoo for most anything peppermint).
But it was my ONLY treat this week. And I’m proud of that. I brought my lunch to work, skipped dessert, drank not a single glass of sweet tea and took one good power walk (working on the exercise part). I also started taking Omega-3’s in an attempt to recover some brain cells.
I feel pretty good. Although I wish the scale (and my favorite corduroy pants) would agree. The good news: I didn’t gain this week. But I also didn’t lose. And I scratched the surface on some lifestyle changes that I hope will stick.
That’s progress, right? I’ll take it.
The scale says: 0 (no loss, no gain)
Fried chicken count: 0 (HOORAY)
Exercise: one power walk with lots of hills
Highs: changing my diet and not missing the bad stuff too much
Lows: discovering that none of my fancy clothes fit, and I have a wedding party next weekend
Moral victory of the week: no sweet tea! no fried chicken!
Moment of weakness: see above (with whipped cream and a cherry)
Progress toward goal: .4 lbs down, 19.6 to go
