Operation Bikini Body, Day 18: 4 Down, 11 To Go


I just wanted to put that out there because I'm so happy that I stuck to my monthly weight loss goal without sticking my finger down my throat! Yay, ME!

What I haven't really done, due to financial and time constraints, is attend Bally's as much as I wanted to. And that sucks because I have this free pass that's just going to waste, plus I had a list of group classes I REALLY wanted to try. C'est la vie!

However, my eating habits have improved dramatically: I'm eating breakfast now, which I NEVER used to, and it has helped to regulate how much I eat during the day (all those nutrition experts were right! Who knew?). I've cut out the fast food and take-out, so that has also helped. And I've been making more food from scratch, so the processed and frozen foods have been cut out, too.

What I'm looking forward to this month is stepping up my physical activities. (No, not THAT kind of physical activity, JACK!) I need to be out on the courts more playing ball with N and K (you should've seen my babies trying to play handball! And that N has some fancy footwork on the b-ball court...that girl got skills, yo!) and going for walks either in the early AM (now that the sun is peeking out earlier in the day) or after I get home.

PLUS... I stopped by the Alvin Ailey American Dance Theater on Saturday and picked up a class schedule. Do I dare? Oh my god- if I run into Linda Celeste Sims in the halls I might just pass out like a stupid European Michael Jackson groupie!

*smooches...fighting the urge to celebrate this four pound loss with a large order of fries!*
someone really needs to "accidentally on purpose" blow up the McDonald's around the corner from where I live...
