Perfect night for soup and PJs!
Well, I'm going to be honest here. The past week has been kinda tough. I know so early in my blog this may be a bit discouraging for some, but I hope if nothing it will show even the successful weight losers have some trouble! I did great last week through Friday. Even Thursday when we had our work luncheon! In the past year and a half or so, I have just refused any food at the office functions, but this time I wanted to test my own self control. Plus I had a recipe for Mexican Cornbread I wanted to try and I'm damn sure not going to cook for the office and not eat! So I looked at the sign up list beforehand and planned exactly what I was going to eat and left a little bit of wiggle room. And guess what? For the first time EVER I did awesome in a group social setting! I had a 1000+ calorie deficit on Thursday and am SO proud of myself. I'm usually an all or nothing kinda girl, and for this reason I constantly worry about going into maintenance mode. But I proved to myself on Thursday that I'm capable of eating at a party without getting out of control, and I really feel like that is something I've needed.
