I know some may see a reward like a Whopper counter-productive to losing weight and getting in shape, but for me, knowing that I can treat myself every once in a while, keeps me from thinking about these kinds of foods all the time and craving them constantly. If I withheld completely from fatty, salty and sweet foods, I would binge on them. That's just me. So, that's why I let myself have a treat every now and then.
Anyway, back to my weigh-in for the week. I am up a pound from this time last week. I'm kind of upset about this, but Joel and I were emailing last night, and he reminded me that weight fluctuates and that as I work-out more, I'll be adding muscle which may "mess-up' the scale every now and then. So, I'm just telling myself that I added a pound of muscle this week. But that's probably not true.
Today marks day 90 of this deployment. I think we've all done remarkably well so far. Joel and I are communicating well and I think still maintaining a long-distance marriage pretty well. I'm not feeling completely overwhelmed taking care of Grace and Autumn and I feel pretty optimistic about the deployment at this point. I keep telling myself that I've done this before and I can do it again.
Thank you all who follow this blog. Starting out, I didn't think I'd ever get more than 10 followers. But, I'm really amazed that I don't personally know the majority of my followers. Thank you for coming along on this ride and for sharing about you!
