This week I weighed in at 225.6 for a loss of 1.4 pounds this week. I am so happy with the loss! I have been working hard eating right and exercising and every week it's paying off! I think that I'm just about at the level that I need to be with my band, if I'm not already there. I'm not getting super hungry and my band lets me know when I've had enough or don't take small enough bites, but not too much where I can't get anything down.
Thanks for all your feedback last week on your exercise routines! I did yoga a couple times this week and I forgot how much I used to love it. Right now, I will be happy with working out three times per week, but my goal is to get to 5-6 times per week. I'm going to try mixing up working out at the gym doing cardio and weights and doing some videos/wii at home.
I've been wanting to get eyelash extensions for awhile and this new place opened up by me last week called The Lash Lounge. So I decided to go for it when they sent me a discount. It took about two hours and my eyes were so red afterwards. I think it was from the collagen patches they used on my lower lashes to hold them down and it really irritated my eyes. Overall I'm pleased with the results. It's nice to go with no makeup and your lashes still look good! I'll post some pictures (with no makeup). I think they look great and still natural. They look even better with makeup and mascara. Excuse the messy eyebrows, they are getting waxed today! You go in about every 3 weeks to get a fill and they just add more lashes where you have lost them. So we'll see if I keep up with it, but it will be fun to have for my birthday month and for the wedding that I'm in next month.
I'm participating in the secret bandits and I got the information this week! I'm super excited about it and think it will be lots of fun! Robyn had posted some questions to help with ideas so I thought I'd post them here.
I like to set mini goals for each week of things I need to work on. I read a quote this week by Mark Twain that I thought was great. He said "The secret of getting ahead is getting started. The secret of getting started is breaking your complex overwhelming tasks into small manageable ones then starting on the first one". In the past I wasn't able to stick with a diet long term because I would get discouraged with the amount of weight I needed to lose. I think my focusing on daily and weekly goals helps rather than focusing on how far I still have to go.
So my goals for this week are: workout minimum of three days, get more water in, attend support group, track everything I eat.
Hope everyone has a great weekend!
