Good morning lovelies! I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was boring, but busy at the same time. I had made a commitment to cook all 3 weekend dinners at home this time around, since I’m pretty sure that all our eating out is my biggest issue when it comes to seeing the scale move. I usually make good choices when I go out by ordering salads and grilled chicken, but you really never can be too sure when it comes to the calorie estimate, and ultimately it’s calories in, calories out, right?
I was exhausted last night so I did leftovers from Saturday, but that’s still better than eating out!
Saturday was a big day for me…I’ve been kicking around the idea of going back to bootcamp, the same one I went to 2-3 times a week when getting in shape for my wedding. I’ve been terrified to go back, mostly because I know how far I’ve let myself slip and I was afraid I wouldn’t be able to keep up. Lucky for me they started doing a weekly “Beginner Bootcamp”, so I figured that was a great place to start. An hour later I was ready to die, and 2 days later I still can’t sit on a toilet seat without yelping in pain, but it felt awesome to be back, and I don’t intend on stopping this time! I spent the rest of the day Saturday cleaning the heck out of my house, then hubs got home from work (Yes he occasionally works Saturdays) so I cooked us dinner, then we went to see a movie (NSV here…I didn’t have ANY popcorn! I can’t remember the last time I went to a movie and didn’t eat a ridiculous amount of popcorn, so this is a proud moment). We saw Trouble with the Curve; I really liked it and I LOVE me some JT, so it was a good night.
Sunday I was up early thinking about going for a run before my morning shift at the Diner I waitress at, but my legs were so sore I couldn’t do it. The restaurant was SUPER busy, there was some crazy soccer tournament in town so every freakin’ kid in the tri-state area and his/her angry soccer mom came in at the same time. Needless to say it was an exhausting day, so I was ready to call it my rest day and be done with it. But then I got home, checked in with my awesome FB group, and all those ladies were kickin some major ass all weekend, so I decided to push through and hopped on my stationary bike. I turned on a DVR’d episode of Parenthood, and before I knew it I had done 50 minutes on the bike! The rest of the day was boring, I grocery shopped, made/heated up dinner, and did some laundry.. and I also cleaned out my closet.
I’ve got a few size 18s that I reluctantly bought last fall because I got so huge I couldn’t fit into any of my pants. Those 18s are officially falling off me now, to the point where they just look awful if I wear them, so I decided to purge them and any other “fat” clothes I had out of my closet for good. No hanging on “just in case” anymore, they’re out of my life and I’m never going back! I have some old 14s that I tried on last night, most of which fit me very well, but there are a few that are a little tight on my thighs, so those will hang out in the front for motivation. It’s weird how sizes vary; I have a few size 12s that I can fit into now (those were my “skinny” jeans that I managed to squeeze into on my birthday), so it’s hard to gauge exactly where I’m at. I may end up taking measurements on Wednesday as part of my weigh in if I have time, but we’ll see.
How did your weekend go? Any proud moments to report?xoxo
