Here's my list of successes for the week.
-Scale budged down .2. Yep, you heard me. And I'll take that. When you only have 12 left to lose, the body fights. Well, mine does.
-Fit back into BOTH pairs of my fave jeans. One are a size 8 Lucky's that I can comfortably wear now & the other a pair of Eddie Bauer jeans that by all rights are "mom" style with high waist but I LOVE them. So comfy & so flattering.
-Comments about me looking skinny.
-Doing EVERYTHING right. Even on a day that I decided to give into cravings & emotional eating, I realized at the end of the day, it was no where near my old definition of that. It was still portioned (by total accident.)
-Worked out every day.
-Did a 5 mile run today. My first long run in two weeks & I still found my groove. And oddly enough, that groove was a little quicker than my usual pace. Felt SO good.
-I am spending my saturday doing grocery shopping, washing bedding, cleaning the kitchen, etc & am enjoying myself. Why? Because I love my life.
It's the small things, isn't it? Not the big mile markers (those are fabulous too) but the little things that add up still make our hearts just as happy.
Have you found the blessings in the little things? Acknowledged something trivial knowing it was a successful moment?
I dare you.
