I don't know if anyone else is doing the 'Lifestyle' change with me, but just in case you are, I thought I'd start doing these once every couple of weeks, just to let you know you've got a buddy! Reading other blogs on the internet really made me want to keep going when I started, and I hope that maybe somehow this can be that blog for someone else. We'll see how far I can go, though :P
So this past week was a bit of a write-off. I had A. LOT. of cakes due which left me with very little time to do much else. I usually go for a run or do some sort of activity after work, but it just wasn't in the cards. Too much buttercream in my fridge. Not enough time in the day. Luckily my lactose-intolerance came in handy (...wait... is that actually a thing?) and since every cake had dairy in it, I physically could not be tempted by any of the extras lol see how that works out?
Buuuuuuuuuut- I did get time to snap my weekly picture! Every week I try and take a photo of myself. Same time, same light, that kind of thing, just so that I can get an accurate picture of myself. With that picture, I'll try and look for a positive change, and this week I actually noticed that I'm finally getting some definition in my flab-tastic arms!! Though the scale didn't budge a whole lot, I got a chance to see the difference coming along in my arms and waist which is a nice little perk!
It's a wee bit scary putting this up online, I know there's still a lot of jiggle and wobbly bits, but honestly? I don't really give a whit. That smile on my face is genuine and one hundred percent earned! The rest will come with time- maybe a few years, but I'm hoping sooner rather than later :P (I want my GD Shark tattoo!!)
This week, since I'm relatively cake-free, I'm hoping to get out there and enjoy the unseasonal weather :) Lord knows Nova loves it, so I may as well get my butt in gear, too, right?
Anyone else fighting the good fight? Got any tips or tricks? And if you want someone to talk to, feel free to message me! Buddy system is the best system!
