So today was Easter. I was so worried that I wasn't going to be able to eat properly and that all my Spark training would go out the window. Well it did not. We had Turkey, Mashed potatoes, green beans, deviled eggs, biscuits, ham, and sweet potatoes. I ate my green beans first, then my Turkey. I stayed away from the ham because of the sodium content. Once I had finished with those two items I couldn't even eat the whole serving of mashed potatoes and ate the whole biscuit. When I put it into the tracker it was only 591 calories for the whole meal. I was sop darn happy. I did it. I was so worried that I would fall back on my old habits and I didn't. I am proud of myself. Now I know that I can handle Holidays and that everything will be alight. After today I feel stronger about my weight loss journey and realize that it is ok if I don't lose any weight at my weigh in tomorrow because I ate sensibly and sometimes you just don't lose weight no matter what you do. I am learning to trust my gut and to so what I think is best. I really think I can do this diet thing. I am glad things went well today. I helped my Mom in her garden for a few minutes weeding and moved around some furniture so that everyone would have a place to sit at dinner. So now I get to log the furniture moving in the exercise. It was only for like 10 minutes but it is something. Tomorrow morning it is back to the gym. Going to work extra hard to burn more weight.
