This post is brought to you by the exercise bike, treadmill, and a jug of water. And very little chocolate.
So, I stepped on the scale this morning and I have officially lost 20 pounds!!!! I'd been stuck at 17 for the longest time. And I was so frustrated. I'd been eating super healthy and working out usually at least 6 days a week. Well this week I didn't work out Monday or Tuesday because we were processing deer. I got back on the treadmill on Wednesday and I had a serious break through. And then I biked the fastest 10 miles I'd ever done yesterday. I felt absolutely great.
Then weighing in this morning just topped it all off. I shouldn't brag, but I am just so darn proud of myself. I keep feeling like 20 pounds isn't that much, but when I think about it I know it is. And I know I should be proud because I've worked really hard. I still have a long way to go but I feel like I can do it.
I have on jeans today that were way too small this time last year and they're hanging off my butt. I need to go shop my skinny closet again. It's just a great feeling. I have a laundry basket full of clothes to get rid of. I mean it's just the best.
I have so much more energy. I actually look forward to eating the healthy food I pack for lunch and breakfast. I crave water. I miss it when I don't go to the gym, I never thought I'd say it, but I really like working out. Like a lot.
So that explains my lack of DIY and crafty projects. I've been too busy going to the gym to get my craft on. I'm hoping to whip up a drop cloth table cloth this weekend in preparation for Thanksgiving. What are you guys up to? Let me live vicariously through your holiday crafts!
