Photo Friday: Getting Healthy

This week has been a good week health wise!  We are eating no-carb/Phase 1 of the South Beach Diet (with a few exceptions) until Christmas.  And this week hasn't been horrible.  Have I had my moments of weakness, absolutely.  But so far so good.  I am going to try a few yummy looking recipes I found on Pinterest this weekend, so I will let you know how they go.

After I work out this afternoon, I will have gotten 4 solid work outs this week.  My energy levels are WAY up and I am feeling good.  And yes, Glee does make treadmill workouts MUCH easier! 

Thank you hot tub.  You are keeping my stiffness and soreness at a manageable level.

Good, bad or otherwise, I am not weighing myself anytime soon.  I am well aware that I am the heaviest I have ever been.  And I see no reason to know what the number is.  I also see no reason to discourage myself when, after days of hard work, the scale only moves a pound or two.  I am going to take the small victories, like my rings being loose again.  And the fact that I feel lighter.  When I've dropped a size, I will let you know. 

 Because the reality is, I just want to be back in all of old clothes.  The ones that say 8 on the tag instead of a much larger number.  The ones that I feel great and confident in again.  The ones that I like my body in.  That is the only number's game I'm going to play. I really don't care how much I weigh as long as I fit back into my clothes.  Because they are really cute.  And I miss them.


Happy Friday!  If you have any weight loss or fitness goals, I'd love you to share.  Because it is so much easier when we all support each other!  

Have a great weekend!

ps- if you haven't yet, you should check out my very first giveaway!  It ends at midnight tomorrow night.

  1. Wow giving up carbs and doing south beach around this time of year-- not worthy!!! Ever noticed its only until you can't have something, that you totally crave it all the time?
