Said outloud Goals.

So just a quick update on my "said outloud goals". If you didn't read that post in January or Feb you can go find it, I don't have time to link it right now..sorry. I have to run to my early saturday morning meeting.

On Monday morning as I was looking at myself in the mirror, pretty disgusted at how my body looked only 4 years after graduation, I decided that I want to be skinny more than I want food. I'm a big Italian food lover, so you can imagine how hard this next decision was for me. I AM GIVING UP CARBS! I haven't had any kind of bread, cracker, pasta, tortilla, rolls, candy, sugary substance since Monday night! I've lost 7 lbs this week and I'm eating right and working out.

I'm at my lowest weight since I've had Jarren and all I'm eating is Eggs for breakfast, banana and peanut butter for lunch or a salad of some sort with very limited dressing and fish for dinner, I can have chicken but Jake is enjoying the new change to fish so we have been having that. I must say Peanut Butter is saving my life. I love it, it's thick so it fills you up, it's not the typical nasty taste of diet foods AND it's good for your Abs, according to my friend nicki and her diet for abs book. I haven't even craved sugar or pasta or bread like I usually do when I diet. I love what I'm eating and I'm loosing weight. Oh I also eat fruits and veggies as snacks or with meals.

I do Hip Hop abs to work out, my knees have a hard time running outside after my knee surgeries 2 years ago, I'm working up to that :) "Shaun T" from hip hop abs makes me laugh, sounds kinda...gay. No offense to gay people out there, but when you are working out and keep hearing "Hey Girl" ...."GIIIIIRL your doing awesome!" things like that it just makes you laugh. But I like it none the less, I get to dance (which I don't do in front of anyone, I make Jake go to the bedroom if he is home!) and it's fun and I'm working out!

Anyway I must go, I should have left 4 minutes ago. I'm just giving myself a pat on the back in public!
