Small Victories

This week has been all about the small victories on my quest to become healthy. My first victory this week came when I put a pair of my work pants on. The week before these pants were tight and now I have a good couple of inches in the waist. They aren't loose yet, but they are on their way to being too big for me.
On the scale this week I have lost .5 pounds. That brings my grand total to 6 pounds lost. Only 124 more to go! The next thing that happened was sad to admit, but also a huge victory for me. My dear hubby and I went to a restaurant that we went to just about 6 weeks ago. At that time, I wanted to sit in the booth, but I couldn't fit, comfortably that is. Yesterday we went in and the hostess showed us to the booth. I panicked for a minute, but I thought to myself, "You've been working out, you got this." All the while, my self-doubt was gnawing at me, but I thought it was a good way to test my progress. I slid into the booth with ease! Oh happy day! I was so excited that I immediately texted my coach and told her. She was so proud of me and excited for me. Lastly, this week my adorable son has been into being chased and running after us. He thinks it is the funniest thing on the planet. So, I got up and I ran with him. I did it for a good 5-10 minutes and wasn't even tired after. If this had been a month ago, there is no way I could have done that. I would have been winded and had to sit down after about 30 seconds of running. It was then I had it reaffirmed in my brain the whole reason I am becoming healthy. For my son, he is the reason I do everything and gives me a direction in life. He is the best thing I have done with my life. I mean how could you not love this face.
This is him in the morning on the way to work and day care. He insists on having some of my shakeology every morning and insists that the pink shaker cup is his. He lights up like it is Christmas morning when I hand it to him. Another small victory, he is starting to learn healthy habits from me and it again lets me know I am doing the right thing. That's it for this week. Stay tuned for next week. Thanks for following me on my journey.
