Weekend Update

So last night, I had Taco Bell. (For the Texans - we don't have Taco Cabana here! It makes me sad.) I really wanted some chips and queso, but I also ordered a chicken quesadilla which I only intended on eating half of. But I ate the whole thing anyway. And I was going to go to the gym today, but I really needed a nap this afternoon before I have rehearsal and then work at the restaurant.

Here's the thing - it's okay!! I'm starting to realize that Fridays and Saturdays are the days I'm going to have to use my weekly WW points. And even with the Taco Bell, I still stayed within my weekly points. So MUCH better than last Saturday - even though I ate fast food, I made smarter decisions.

So far I've been to the gym 3 days this week (my WW week starts on Wednesday), and I'm still taking the Body Flow class. I've noticed that I do much better in the first half of the class - the later half my body is still getting tired and it's hard to do some of the poses, but I definitely can tell a difference already. Also, I've increased my running intervals to alternating a lap and a half of running, then 2 laps walking. Hopefully it will be 2 laps of each soon. I've also noticed that my resting heart rate is much lower than it used to be, and I have to work a lot harder to get my heart rate up around 160.

My clothes are fitting better and it feels SO good to be confident in them. Last night I wore a shirt I hadn't work in at least 9 months, and I actually felt great. I can tell the most difference around my stomach - I carry a lot of weight there. It's not a totally obvious difference to most people, I'm sure, but I can tell. And hey, I'm doing this for me!

Thank you all for reading! Another update soon!
