It was a grueling week. Not much else to say about it I made it. So glad it's the weekend...even if I have to work again.
Weight loss - finally moving again. I had sprung up 5 pounds and was feeling rather frustrated. Today, I was at 165. That's a low I haven't seen in a LONG, long time. The key? Slow eating. When I do this, I can naturally stop at "80% full". What I eat seems to be much less important (although it still factors in, don't get me wrong) that how much I'm eating. I'm focusing on this concept full time. I'm pairing it with lean protein at every meal and 5 servings of veggies (trying to keep it to 1 serving of fruit per 3-5 servings of veggies, though some days that goes better than others). DH and I are noticing how much less we're eating. We don't feel deprived. Don't feel like we're dieting. Just naturally eating less. It's good on the food budget!
Am going to be traveling for almost 2 weeks straight. Lots of hotel time, no kitchen. I'm going to focus on SLOW eating and getting enough veggies (biggest challenge while traveling - especially in some of these locations, where "ice burg lettuce" is the best veggies around). Sigh.
Last year around this time, my grandparents passed away. It still hurts so much...I still think of them most days. I miss them. I was so blessed to have them as such a big part of my life.
