Today's Mantra: The scale is my friend. The scale is my friend. om

186. Although the scale is really a fickle bastard, today is a day where I received 3 compliments on my slimmer figure and healthier appearance.  Also, trying on some pants at a fancy boutique (aka Sears department store, hee hee), I easily slipped into a size 10 pant -minimal muffin top - wowza!
Yes, I have been slacking in the healthy eating department this past week as well as fewer exercise sessions. However, I must have lost some inches along the way. Woo!

In any case, NO MORE excuses! Time for me to ramp it all up, plan better and take my health and well being to the next level. Size 6, you're MINE!

Another day, another fresh start. I began with an exercise class at 7AM that got me pumped for the day. Then I packed a whole bag full of delicious snacks and food items for the day (see roll call below)

And I even began the day with a treat - a small 1/2 scoop of turtles ice cream in a pure protein shake. mmmmm.
I love a lil cheat. Makes you feel sooo good. hee hee hee. But just a lil one though. Big cheats (see here) make you feel gross/guilty/horrible/(insert bad feeling here).

I also can't forget either that its my...
COUNTDOWN TO GROUP WEIGH IN DAY - December 13th, 2009 - Day 1 of 30
which means I have to pay extra special attention to all that goes into this large, always open, mouth of mine. sigh. Well if I win the $900 pot, I'm going shopping for some new clothes.  And if I don't, I'm going to an all-you-can-eat buffet. Just kidding. By then, I'll be too content with healthier feelings and energetic bursts of life that I won't even wanna THINK about a gross, over processed, non natural based meal and how bloated I'll feel after too. Yuck. Well that's the plan at least. Wish me luck!
