Journey update part 3

As you can see, I wore my blue dress! But, the week as a whole wasn’t easy.

Here’s a recap of last week’s goals:

Mind: I wanted to listen to my body more and control my urges better.

Body: I kept with my 2lb weight loss goal with a hope of weighing 155 by the end of the week. My limitations were:

  • Bread
  • Pasta
  • Non-Natural Sugars –
  • NEW LIMITATION: Salt.

I was allowing myself french fries and committed to trying to do 25 crunches in the morning and night…

Update: I’d love to say I was successful because my weight is down…But…It was definitely for lack of trying.

Update & New Goals:
Mind: I wasn’t too in love with my body this week because Aunt Flow came to visit and my body kept saying ” give me sweet and salty stuff… so I did. I ate whatever I wanted so my household could remain sane. Thankfully I still had enough willpower to try to add in some healthy stuff, but for the most part, it was junk. Oh, and I didn’t do any crunches, not 1.

Phew, I feel much better having gotten that off my chest. I am now focused and back on track. Still making it a point to love my body at every stage and size.

Body: The scale was all over the place this week. I gained the expected 5 lbs in water weight, so I just avoided the scale like the plague until recently. In spite of the 5 lb weight gain, after my body went back to normal my final weight was 152 lbs. Which means I exceeded my goal of 155 by 3 lbs. So, for breakfast, I’m having waffles!

New weight goal: 2 lbs. I’m sticking with 2 lbs a week because it is feasible. So my goal is to weigh in at 153 or less by next week.

Soul: I recently lost my grandma, and my head was all over the place. My kids and their innocence really helped me through. So this week, I am choosing joy because I know my grandma can now rest in peace.

If you’ve decided to join in on this journey, I’d love to hear about it. Feel free to write me at 4thepimom@gmail.com. Don’t be discouraged by my lack of effort this week, and don’t be too hard on yourself when Aunt Flow pays you a visit. Just give your body what it wants, and your family a peaceful household.

Staying Motivated!

The P.I. Mom
