Down & Dirty in 30 Weigh-In #5

Sisterhood of the Shrinking Jeans

All I can say about this week is that I am in "ready for vacation" mode...   Hubby and I leave on Friday for four days away WITHOUT kids.  This will be our first trip alone in three years!  AND, Friday is my birthday, so it is a bit hard to be focused right now.

I had a GREAT run on Saturday - 7 miles and this time I beat last weeks time - struggled a bit with my breathing, but got it done!
While the scale didn't reflect it totally, I have made some great changes this week.  I am going meat-free and really limiting my dairy.  I have always struggled with dairy anyway, so that part isn't a real biggie.  I have tried new things and new recipes, and albeit very good and healthy, know that I have overindulged a bit in grains.  I will continue to tweak.  I also took a "de-stress" workshop and there was a whole piece on mindful eating - you would not believe how much less you can eat, simply by being "present", chewing your food completely and truly enjoying the flavors.  It was very eye openning.
So while this challenge hasn't ended up being super successful for me, I embrace the fact that I am in a bit of transition with medication, stress and diet.  So, I continue to put one foot in front of the other.
