Therapy in a jar....

I been on the go with a capital G but it's all good I'm getting back into my routine!  Boule 2014 was wonderful and I enjoyed spending time with my sorors and the ManFriend.

My weight loss is at a stand still and so is my motivation.  Which was perfect for me to discuss it rather than ignore it...I had a good session with my therapist and we discussed my attitude about exercise. I told her I have these moments of utter frustration and I guess envy for people who seem to lose weight without much effort.  She suggested I re frame that because exercise is simply good for my health not just good for weight loss and I should consider that it's merely my perception that others have it easy when in actuality everyone must work at it to some degree.

She makes it sound so easy... like Therapy in a jar (that jar is real by the way lol its in her office)

I suppose she is right...but it doesn't feel that way. I'm still struggling with making better choices more consistently and that's frustrating too.

On a positive note I did a good job today I cooked breakfast and dinner last night and packed my food so all I had to do was grab and go this morning.  I filled my water bottle up at home and by 10 am I was already at 60 oz!

I stuck with my planned meals and instead of butter popcorn I had unsalted almonds for a snack.

On the way home my mind kept saying get some ice cream... then it went to get a blizzard. ..then get a cheeseburger. .. utter madness.  I drove straight home and had my treat for the week some Trader Joe chocolate with PB. It did the trick and the cravings stopped.

I just had dinner and I'm on the way out to a baseball game. Didn't do the gym and didn't do T25 or treadmill at home. Not even mad that it didnt happen but I will take the mini victories today brought. :-)

On The Run

Well I went to see Jay X last night oh and his wife!  Whewwwww! Tall know I love me some Jigga! They put on a great show. Not a concert a full blown theatrical production! Impressive! Everything from the wardrobe to the set which was really a digital masterpiece to the song selection and arrangements! #Flawless

I had a great time! I really must day what truly impressed me was the message they are sending a young couple in love working hard and enjoying life. So many other images out there devalue marriage and having children in wedlock it's nice to see multimillionaires doing it and making it look "cool" it can only help society especially the younger generation!  All around good stuff. They ended the show with lovely images of their life and travels and family pictures with Blue Ivy and it was heart warming. Love The Carters!

 Anyway back to me lol I am behind on updating my T25 progress. I was down another pound after week 3 and I will take it. I missed one workout but food was a lot better and I didn't stress myself out with being overly crazy about what I was doing

I didn't start week 4 and I really don't have a reason.  I slept in late on Saturday until a Junior League event at 12 noon at the same winery I had my 35th Birthday party! It was a great group and we had lots of fun. I made it a Sassy Summer Celebration!  We can dressed in sun dresses and derby hats and fascinators! We looked cute! See pictures to prove it below lol

All in all a good week and I have a meeting tonight so I will start Week 4 Day 1 tomorrow after work! My big sorority conference is next week and I'm looking forward to it. I just have to unpack from my last trip lol 

Any hoo I will check in soon!!!
