So I mentioned in my last post, I was worried about this past week because I was going out of town and wouldn't be able to make my own meals or have time to exercise. So what was the damage?! I gained a pound. Not totally happy about that, but oh well. I tried to make as healthy of choices as I could, but also wanted to enjoy myself.
Like I mentioned in my first post about my new year efforts to eat better and lose the extra weight I have put on, I mentioned that in the past I have been able to eat right for a few weeks, drop the weight fast, and pretty much maintain it and go back to eating whatever I want for awhile. My body doesn't do that anymore, this is something I need to maintain and it is a change that I am having a hard time getting used too.
As you may have seen I went to a blogging conference last week and was really excited for this one night which was a "clue" theme. I found the PERFECT dress online, but since I am a totally new size right now, it has been hard to know what size to get. So I ordered up since I have put on weight hoping that was about right. It got here just a few days before the conference and it didn't fit!!! It was SOOO tight. A little part inside of me hurt because I know I normally should be able to wear that size of a dress if not smaller. The biggest motivator besides being healthy right now is the fact that I love the clothes in my closet and can't afford to buy all new ones because of bad eating habits!! haha
So here is to the best motivator for all girls out there, CLOTHES! I need to get rid of this extra weight because my clothes are just too tight for comfort right now! But with that said, this week is my birthday... I mean, am I really going to skip out on my cake?? BAH! See I am already doing it...
