1.) Last week, I flushed an entire stick of deodorant down my toilet.
I knocked it in from the back of the toilet while I was flushing and didn’t think it would go down, but long story short, it did. The culprit:
It’s out now, at least.
2.) I am giving a presentation at the all staff meeting at my day job today about healthy lunches, and I’m really nervous.
I don’t normally mix my weight loss/healthy living world with my regular job, and especially do not talk about my personal weight loss story that openly (until today, that is). On top of that, I also just found out yesterday it is a 45 minute presentation instead of the 15 minutes I was expecting. Oy.
3.) This weekend my parents are coming into town and I’m hosting Easter brunch.
It’s my first time ever hosting a holiday, and I am nervous even though my mom is going to help me cook.
4.) Last week, I didn’t meal plan AT ALL for the first time in a long time.
I ate out for almost every meal with the exception of a few english muffins and soft boiled eggs here and there. It was not kind to my wallet, but it felt pretty freeing and made me excited to get back to a plan this week.
5.) Despite claiming that being active is a nonnegotiable part of healthy living for me, I took two full weeks off from working out sort of unintentionally.
One day fed into the next and into the next, and then all of a sudden it had been two full weeks. I broke that streak yesterday with 5 miles on the treadmill, and it was, as should be expected, really, really hard.
I felt like a million bucks afterwards, though.
6.) Last week for the first time in ages, I didn’t track my food at all.
I ate what I wanted when I was hungry, and it was really liberating in a way. I ate a lot of things I’d been craving and tried to balance it out with fruit and veggies, but didn’t count points at all. I was excited to see that I was down a few pounds yesterday despite that – I think my body and my mind both needed the break.
