Small Changes…. Slow & Steady

Awwwww, this week has been so amazing and it’s only Wednesday!

I was offered a new position (that I turned down after much thought), I received a raise, I’ve been working out like a BEAST, my pants, rings, and even underwear are fitting much looser, I weighed in half a pound lighter from last week (114.5lbs) AAaaaanndddd…… I threw my suit on to take some pics and I am finally seeing progress.

This is cause for celebration! Today I made my event Emerald Cup ‘Facebook Official’ and invited a couple of my closest homie’s. I have gotten a couple of responses, it feels amazing to have my friends and families support. Now I wish my competition was next week instead of 14 weeks out. Booooo….

I’ve been adjusting to this diet quite well too. I’m going onto the third week. I’m hoping at the end of 30 days it will be habitual. I get really excited about craisins and peanut butter! Not together of course….. I’ve become addicted to cottage cheese, cinnamon, and craisins….. delicious combination! I haven’t created a name for it yet. Sliced honey crisp apples with peanut butter have also become a favorite.

I’m really looking forward to this weekend’s cheat meal! I’m thinkin’ Mexican again…. Azteca really hit the spot last time. No dessert though! I can have one or the other…. not both. Here are my options for cheat meals below, vote for one or suggest your own! I’m curious to see what the general public would choose!

Tonight I am running home, hopefully gonna make it another 6 mile run like Monday night. Tomorrow I’m hittin’ the gym full force, gonna tackle my booty in the squat rack. Actually seeing some slow and steady results in that area! Yippee! I still have so much time left, I can make all the slow progress I want, as long as progress is being made.

Can’t wait to dig into some yummy dinner tonight! Last night I had to have a ‘mid-week’ meal prep since Derek has been eating my food. Come on man! You don’t have to be on a diet, I do! Make your own damn food! Just kidding…. seriously though.

protein cookiesLast night I made more Turkey Muffins since they are soooo addicting! Even Derek likes them and he hates most anything ‘healthy’ I try to make. I baked and mashed sweet potatoes and steamed more broccoli. I am trying to figure out what I want to make this weekend. I have so many oats and peanut butter I might just make Peanut Butter Oatmeal Protein cookies with coconut oil and Truvia! MMmmm yummm!

2 more days till the weekend! Big plans! Celebrating my raise and weight loss, not sure how yet. Maybe new work pants and night out with the hubby? I have lost 10lbs since starting at the Executive Briefing Center. My size ‘0’ pants used to be SKIN tight, I could hardly fit into them after they came out of the dryer. Now when I wash and dry them and put them on they sag like sweat pants. They use to be ‘high-waisted’ but now they fall down my hips. I’m not complaining! I just hope I don’t lose my wedding ring, it’s been really lose!

I will need to schedule some posing practice in the very near future. I feel like if there’s anything I will struggle with, it will be posing! Next month I will set something up with Natalie, have her show me some tips and tricks!

Anyways, hope everyone is havin’ an awesome hump day! Don’t forget to vote for a cheat meal!
