I feel so good today!
Goals met yesterday:
No wine, no pre-dinner happy hour snacking
Only 3 pieces candy, and I gave away my stash of Pecan Delights
Healthy eating throughout the day with fruits/veggies (2 clementines, 1 apple, fruit smoothie and a salad.)
Light exercise (stairs, walking)
I realize I can easily cut 500-1,000/day by cutting out my happy hour wine and snack. I know this, but for some reason, I back-slide. I really, really need to remember that daily happy hours really pack on the pounds and it is not worth it. Just a weird habit I get in to while I'm cooking dinner and watching the news. I think -- I know I have a lot of anxiety and this is my way of self-medicating. But in the end, it doesn't help. Note to self, right? LOL
The kids are coming home from college this week and I'm so looking forward to having everybody home.
Progress as of today: 2 lbs lost so far, only 33 lbs to go!
