Monday's Motivation #7



When I saw this image and quote I smiled to my inner thin ballerina.

I am actually just like the real ballerina, but in my head I am the thin ballerina.  

Imagery helps to keep me focused on my goal of lifestyle change.  If I imagine myself healthier and working out, I can see the muscular thinner person I will soon be.

Yes, I know the word thinner continues to pop up.  I have to be true to my vanity and admit the reason for the clean eating and working out is so that I can be thinner.

I want to wear a size 8 again, although for now my goal is a size 10.  The number on the scale doesn't move me as much as the size on the tag.

Week 3 Summary

I worked out only 3 days again this week, but not to laziness.  Somehow I blew out my knee.  I have water on the knee.  It doesn't hurt and I want to keep it that way.  It is getting better as I write this and I hope to be back at it on Tuesday.

Again, success with clean eating.  This has been the easier part for me this time.  I have added a few different items to my eating plan.  

Something I always wanted to try but was afraid to is Shirataki Noodles.  Yes, they do smell a bit funky, but if you rinse and boil them as the package says they are quite tasty.  



I have used them with soy crumbles and marinara sauce.  Skinny pasta.  I'll be the first to admit it's not like mama makes but not too bad.

Cheat Meal #1 
Hamburger with bun and oven baked fries with cocktails

Cheat Meal #2
Ham, rice and beans with cocktails

Weight loss this week ~  Still at 4 pounds, but I feel so much lighter.

I'm re-evaluating my cheat meals and will be making some changes.

I'll share these changes next Monday.
