In retrospect, it probably wasn't too smart to declare a week of no desserts when my birthday was part of that week. I did good until Saturday night when I had a dessert, and then of course on Monday I didn't restrict myself at all. I eat whatever I want on my birthday! Other than those two days I met my goal of no desserts. I tried to eat more fruits but I wasn't as successful since Lucas and I were sick over the weekend. When your child is sick all plans for healthy eating tend to fly out the window. I probably averaged 1-2 servings of fruit before the weekend, but I know I can and should eat more.
Despite being sick over the weekend and then pigging out all day Monday, I did lose 1 pound this week.
Lbs Lost So Far: 1
Lbs Left To Lose: 24
Goals: This week I intend to chug a lot more water. I am so focused on taking care of my 2 little boys that I often don't drink water until I am desperately thirsty. So that needs to change. In addition, I plan on getting out for a real walk at least 4 days this week. By "real" I mean that I will put Ryan in his stroller and wear Lucas in a baby carrier in order to actually break a sweat during my walks. If I let Ryan walk, we tend to just meander along, looking at sticks and bugs.
