1. Yesterday morning, I had to fast for some more blood work that I was having done. When I got finished at the lab, it was noon and I was STARVING. I had another appointment at 12:30, so I thought, "I'll just grab some Jack in the Box" on the way.
Immediately, I realized what a horrible idea that was. It's just such a habit for me to eat on the run; it was my first instinct. After that, I had a battle of wills within myself to NOT TURN THE CAR TOWARDS fast food row! Ultimately, I drove home instead and made a quick sandwich. VICTORY!! I was so proud of myself that when I got to my next appointment, I wanted to tell every stranger I passed, "Hey! Guess what I just did?" lol
2. Later, at the playground after school, one of the Moms asked me if I'd lost weight. SURELY I've not lost any yet (I'm only gonna weigh on Saturdays, so I don't know for sure, but it's only been a week since I went hard core with the diet and exercise.) Then last night, my friend's brother said, "You've been losing weight!" I kissed him on the cheek for saying so! Neither of these people know I've started this journey, so I know they weren't blowing sunshine up my pantiloons. I can't imagine that it's noticeable already, but it sure felt great to hear!
3. I've made it 6 days without a Diet Coke (or ANY caffeine or carbonated beverage.) All I've had is water. The headache Wednesday and yesterday was intense (and yet, I still went to my Nia class! Go me!), but it's finally abated. I think I'm over the hardest part now! The best thing is, my body craves water already. That's gonna be so good for me.
