Fun weekend ahead.. (And a scale shocker!)

First things first. I weighed myself when I woke up today and it said 190.5! (It was 194.2 on Sunday!) That is already a 3.7lb loss this week! What?!? I haven't lost 3 lbs in so long! So what have I learned this week? Keep running, because apparently it is working!

In other news, it's going to be a fun, busy weekend. I am going out with friends this weekend Friday, Saturday during the day, and then have a date Saturday night (yay!!).

On Friday, I'll be eating out and going to a bar, so I will have to kind of watch what I drink and eat, but I won't be too strict about it. I want to have fun and not worry about it, but I won't go overboard. (Sometimes it's really annoying to have to be mindful of this stuff...) Saturday during the day and at night should both be fine.

Right now, the scale is making me very happy so far this week, so we'll see what this weekend does to that. I always get kind of nervous when I change up the routine by traveling or going out because that's when I feel like I'm tested in terms of eating well. But I'm so excited for a 3+lb loss and I don't want to undo my efforts so that motivation will be in my head.  I hope you all have a great weekend!

Attitude of Gratitude: I'm grateful to have some fun plans!

That's is Great!!! Congratulations!! I love it when the scale tips lower than I expected, makes me feel the reality that what I am doing is succeeding and that I will make it. Pushes me to keep exercising and eating right and that it is all working its way towards my ideal weight and shape! You should feel good about yourself!
