I am down almost three pounds in one week. Although this exceeded my goal of one pound a week, I was frustrated. Considering how difficult it was to change, I felt that I should have lost 15 pounds. I had three small cheats all week and my no’s to temptation far outnumbered my yes’s.
Do I have any regrets? After looking back on my week, I can promise you that every piece of food I ate, and workout I endured, was worth that number. I can not imagine a piece of food that is worth not feeling this great. As of today, I am part time-trainer, full-time manager of this studio and full-time manager to a multi-state family. I should be exhausted and yet I feel great. I will make my favorite recipes and be ready for the next week.

This week I will work for the next weigh-in and I will struggle with temptation. I will argue with myself over that seasonal Cadbury Egg that only comes around this time of the year. I will struggle with Trader Joe’s down the street and their wonderful marketing campaign. I can’t purchase any bad food from such a healthy establishment, so their chocolate bar with almonds can not be that bad. With these warm nights I will fantasize about walking to Diggums(they used to be Brighams) for a kiddie ice-cream cone. However, I understand that multiple small cheats are only bad habits. Eating clean is the only habit I want to embrace. I will focus on the weigh in on Wednesday with no distractions.
