Day #117 Losing Inches & Gaining Muscle

Whoa! Time is going by so fast! I've been working so many days in a row, two weeks ago it was 5 in a row and this week it was 6 in a row. I haven't been losing a whole lot of weight these past two weeks, in fact i've been fluctuating between 206 and 208 the last two weeks.

Today when I put on my jeans I felt like they were really loose, but the scale wasn't budging, so I decided to measure myself and I have lost 10 INCHES off of my waist and hips! I think i'm gaining muscle weight in my legs from walking so much at work and losing inches off my belly which I love!

Things are going well over here, how are they going for you?

Day #102 Back on track!

I've been bad, really really bad! I haven't been tracking calories, i've been eating because i've been stressed from working so much, my dog was very sick, i've been sick, and (insert more excuses).

I didn't want to face the damage so I didn't look at the scale when I weighed, I had my husband look. He said it's 209. something. I have been feeling bloated and huge and was expecting to weigh 215 so i'm really grateful!

I'm also trying to combat the stress by taking care of myself. I got a cute new pair of shoes, I had a treatment done to my hair to make it softer and healthier, I got my eyebrows waxed and a brazilian, and I had a girls day with my godmother. I also went out for a drink after work last night and caught up on sleep today.

I counted calories today and stayed under my target of 1460! This is going to be a good week!

Day #96 Sick

The last few days I have been sick with what started out as throat irritation and has now made my lymph nodes in my neck turn into rocks. I had to call in yesterday to work b/c of fever which I hate hate HATE to do because I know how much it SUCKS when you're working and someone else calls in. I will go in to work with any illness as long as I don't have a fever.

My body has been demanding more calories these last few days as well and I just stopped counting calories because I felt like I was going so far "overboard". Today when I got on the scale I weighed 207...wait...how can this be? I've been eating like a crazy person, I should have gained 2 lbs, not lost it! We'll see if this sticks for my Friday weigh in or if it's just a fluke.

What is your favorite substitute to make foods "lighter"?
