I am free…to eat cookies!

How fast can I blog?  It’s 10:47 and my computer says I have 44min left of battery, ready go…

It’s been a pretty laid back week.

Friday: I can’t even remember what I did, that was like a week ago and my brain barely remembers what I did yesterday!  I do remember it was weigh-in day and I lost 2.2lbs.

Saturday: went to an art party at my sister’s house and bought my first pieces of artwork, I’m officially a grown-up now!

Sunday: church

Monday:  Felt really sluggish and tired.  Did my workout and snacked a lot.  Pretty sure I’m missing like 6 food pics, maybe on purpose??  😉

 Tuesday:  P90X2 Plyocide, hung out at the pool, dipped Cruz in, Happy July 3rd? BBQ

Wednesday: Happy 4th of July!!  60min hot yoga, went to Mirror Lake with the fam, had a picnic, kids swam in the freezing cold lake, came home and had delicious pizza and vegged out in front of the tv, it was a blast!

Thursday:  Raining finally!!  We needed it desperately cause the state was pretty much on fire.  Did my P90X2 shoulders and arms, went to lunch with Sasa to her favorite El Chubasco, then she dragged me to 90min of hot yoga and I seriously thought I was going to die by the end.  I experimented with my Body by Vi Vi-Shape mix and added it to our protein pancake.  It literally tasted like I was eating cake!  Even my sister Sherilynn who is like ANTI my Body by Vi shake mix, for some unknown reason, said “mmm that smells like cake” then tasted it “crap that is GOOD”…HA!!!  It did get a little dry, next time I may experiment with the recipe.  I’ll keep you posted.

I also got a special surprise from my hubby!

Isn’t he sweet!!  Try not to barf on your computer!

Today: Rest day much needed, my body was screaming at me.  Also weigh-in day.  I wasn’t expecting a loss this week because I seriously had at least 20 cookies this week (weight watchers, but still!).  I was pleasantly surprised with a 1.8 pound loss.  My total weight-loss since 3/25 (the day Cruz was born) is 39.1 with 12.9 to go in order to reach my goal weight!!  I’ve lost 9.5 just in the time I’ve been switching out my post-workout shakes for my Body by Vi shakes, so I’m super excited to see how it continues over the next 60 days of my 90-day challenge.

As far as food today it was pretty standard…protein pancake, Vi-shake, snacked on some Trader Joe’s pretzels at the pool, 1/2 balance bar, and Chipotle take-out for dinner at a friends house.  Oh…and another cookie 😉 I’m obsessed!  But hey, I’m losing weight and eating cookies…what more could I ask for?????

Insight for the week: My yoga teacher Gwen at Tadasana Yoga in Park City gave us a great analogy about freedom.  If you think of a flag pole and the American flag, the symbol of our freedom, the pole is the stability that gives the flag the freedom to wave.  So think about that and put it in your own life.  We have the ability to give ourselves freedom.  The more stable we are in our lives, the more freedom we have.  So many things can interrupt our stability so we have to work hard to overcome them so that ultimately we can be free.  I also like to think of it as if I am stable in keeping within my daily allotted Weight Watchers points, I am free to eat cookies!!  Ha, ok maybe that’s a little reaching, but hey it seemed to work this week 😉
