Another month down. Some new, and not so great, little demon habits started sneaking in this month. Messy head messages, really. Because I was still "underweight" according to my doc, and because I have been nervous the last two weeks about a month-long trip coming up, I started letting myself snack way more, and even ate emotionally some. YUCK! Hated it! I gained 3 pounds, which is no big deal as it's in my happy range, but I'm not happy AT ALL about how it made me feel. It made me feel out of control and defeated. Stopping that!!
I'm glad that this month is over and the trip is here. We leave tonight for a month in Samoa. It will be an adventure of a lifetime, and I know I'll feel relaxed and happy once we are on the plane tonight! The 24+ hours it will take to get there (in middle seats, in economy) will not be bad as all the prep work will be done. And I have to admit it feels great knowing I can shift from side to side in my seat because I have ample room now! Thank heavens!!!
Exercise has been great this month. I've worked up to running 5 miles at a clip and that feels good. And our gym got some Peletron bikes, so I've done a few online classes on them. OMG!! Kicked my butt!! I'm literally dripping with sweat after a 30 minute class! I highly recommend them if you're feeling like you're in good shape and need to be knocked down a few pegs! Maybe it's just me, but they are tough! Good, but tough!
I had an NSV yesterday that I've really been looking forward to. I've never been small enough to feel comfortable in white jeans. So when I started maintenance, I vowed to get some white jeans this summer. Well, I live in Houston, and it's too hot to wear white jeans in summer! BUT, a few weeks ago I saw a white jean skirt on major markdown from last summer. Size Zero. It fit!!!! What?!?!?!?! So had to buy it! Here it is. Wore it for the first time yesterday as my momma taught me to not wear white until after Memorial Day. Anyone else get that one? haha! I've added the picture below.
Time to go and do last minute packing! ALOFA! (That's aloha in Samoan :))
