Small Goals and Yummy Food

I have been doing my Turbofire challenge for 6 weeks now. That means I am halfway done. I am now starting to think about what my next step will be. I have to think about the fact that my friend's wedding is in February. I am a bridesmaid and it scares me. I love my friend and I am so excited to be her bridesmaid and help her on her special day. But, the dress is a one sleeve dress and everybody will get to see my flabby nasty arms in all their glory. My plan for my next step in my fitness journey is do some fat burning and toning of my core and arms. I want to look fabulous in her wedding pictures! As far as my overall goals, I semi reached one of them this week. My goal was to be able to shop at regular stores and not have to go to fat girl stores. We went to Sam's Club and for household stuff and I noticed they had some really cute workout clothes. The clothes were all super stretchy and I still thought I wouldn't be able to fit in them. My dear hubby, being the great guy he is, encouraged me to buy them. I bought them and to my surprise they fit. It was probably one the happiest moments of my life! I know that I still can't buy the majority of my clothes in regular sizes, but I am on my way.
This week I haven't lost any weight, but I did lose 1 more inch in my waist. Also this week I have been concentrating on cooking healthy dinners for my family. Being a full time working Mom is a hard job so I love things with very little prep or that can be done when I get home. Therefore, one of my favorite kitchen appliances is my crockpot. I made this yummy dinner for my family and I felt great about it.
It was so yummy that I had it for lunch the next day. I'll be nice and give you the recipe. 4 lean pork chops or small pork tenderloin, 2 chopped sweet potatoes, 1 chopped onion, 2 chopped apples, 1/4 cup brown sugar, dash of cinnamon, 2 cups chicken stock, and salt and pepper to taste. Place all the ingredients in the crockpot and cook on low for 6-8 hours or until done.
