Today I had my Weight Watchers class and weigh in. My husband Al, was off work today, so we walked the 2 miles to the meeting together. I went in nervous but confident. I knew that I was proud of how I lived this past week but also nervous in case that did not translate to the scale. As it turns out I had nothing to be worried about. I got on the scale and it gave me a beautiful 4.5lb loss for the week! Sweet!
This past week I really concentrated on living a balanced life. Last Wednesday I talked about how I always felt like I was being super good or super bad, never balanced. So everyday I started asking myself, "Would you be happy if lived this way everyday for the rest of your life?"
And everyday the answer was, "Yes." Keeping this in my mind for the past week has helped my avoid a day where I gorged and felt bad for everything I did-certainly not how I would want everyday to look like and similarly it helped me avoid a day where I was 'too perfect' and didn't enjoy any of the wonderful things life has to offer.
As for the week ahead I just want to do more of the same. Last night Al and I planned meals for the week and we went to the grocery store this morning so I am totally prepared for another week. Here's to balance! I think I am learning!
Oh and finally, I have a huge surprise tomorrow! So be sure to check back!
