Plant Strong! January Week 2 survived!
Sunday, January 15, 2012
Phew - what a hectic week I had! Both my boys started a new school year - my youngest started Grade 1! All very physically and emotionally draining, but I managed to get through it!
I am happy to say I kept it together with my diet (actually "trying" to stay on track is not an issue with my new WOE...it's just so easy!) - although not so much on the exercise side, I just ran short of time. Will get back on track this week.
Results showing already: So exciting!!! I can fit into pants that I couldn't at the beginning of the month! They are still a bit tight, but I'm really thrilled as I will slowly regain more clothes to wear (at the moment my wardrobe is severely limited - not much I can squeeze into!).
I am still staying off the scale! Although it is getting tempting now that I know I AM DEFINITELY losing. I took measurements on the 5th of Jan and will re-measure in beginning of Feb. Can't wait to see the results!
Below is what I ate this past week. Still enjoying every bite and the fact thatI DON"T have to count calories!!! YAY!!! Bring on the potatoes, and rice!
Never thought that I'd say: I LOVE STARCH!!!!
