While not perfect, I did much better about staying on plan this week. There were still a couple of Panera mornings but overall, much better and much more conscious of what I was eating when I was off plan. And it showed:
I'm pretty tickled with that. And, because it's the start of a new month, here are measurements, which won't be too unchanged from a couple of weeks ago:
Still, there is some loss and I'll take it, for sure and for certain. It is a bit frustrating to still be ordering the same size clothes but then I remember, they actually fit now, versus too tight and never getting worn. In fact, I bought 2 pairs of cropped jeans for summer last week and the one pair is already able to be pulled off without unzipping...and I'd bought them one size smaller than usual. The pair in the store were a bit snug - the pair we had to order is the pair that are a bit loose! So, a wonderful NSV (non-scale victory) there! And, just to remind myself of the body composition changes - I'm wearing the same tank top in these pictures but clearly not the same pants. When I tried on the other pair of crop pants and looked at myself in the mirror, I was kind of gobsmacked at the difference in side view of my legs.
And this week's FitBit stats:
This is our last week of 3am wake-up calls - yes!! And only 4 days - his last day at Panera is the Thursday, we're taking Friday off to spend with family, and he starts the winery Saturday. Well, officially starts - he's worked the last 2 Fridays for a couple of events they had. We'll be doing almost a complete turn-around in schedule as my new schedule will be 9:30am-6:00pm (versus 6:30am-3:00pm) and his will vary from 10am-6pm, 11am-7pm, or 12pm-8pm+closing duties. My intent is to still wake up relatively early - 6am - and do a quick walk/hike/strength-training before we head out - I'll be dropping him off in Hill City by 8:45am to ensure I can get to work in Rapid City by 9:30am. The first week will get us some time frames worked out but then it will be smooth sailing!
So, until next week!
