Slowly but Surely

Hello, lovelies! Hope you're all doing well. I had a pretty good week food-wise and I did rather well with exercise, too. I even saw the lowest number on the scale since I've been back from vacation. It was a crappy 215.5 which is still higher than my all time low of 208.something, but at least I'm going in the right direction. I'd love to be in Onederland by the time I begin student teaching on August 27th. Totally doable, I think. I just need to keep myself out of trouble. And one awesome new way I've found of doing that is this:

Work out to Harry Potter (harry potter,workout)

Combining my love of Harry Potter with something as miserable as working out?! It's worth a shot. I haven't tried it yet, but you can bet your bottom dollar I'm going to. I'm actually excited about it, too. Awesome. And I know there are a few other Harry Potter fans out there, so I'm super pumped that I found this bad boy on Pinterest.

In other news, I've been doing some student teaching shopping recently and I've purchased 2 size 18 skirts. When I started this whole thing I was in a (tight) 22, probably should have been wearing a 24. I'm still only about half way to goal, but it's nice being able to at least buy smaller things and have them look nice.

If I'm perfectly honest, I'm afraid I've let myself slip with the bandster rules for too long that I'm to far removed to reach my goal. I know I shouldn't think like that, but when I look at some of you ladies, I can't help but feel like a bit of a failure. I just need to keep doing what I've been doing this week and not give in to the summer temptations-corn dogs, ice cream, funnel cakes. Sigh. I'm all stocked up on healthy foods though so there's no excuse. This time next week I want to be down at least another pound. Wish me luck!

Hope you all have a great weekend and Happy Summer to everyone!

My Dear Jackie- You are NOT a failure. Look at how far you have come. And you are not done unless you choose to be done. You can get back on the rules anytime.
Don't be so hard on yourself.

We all have our ups and downs. I am queen of the downs! Try not to think so much about the summer temptations as the summer opportunities - fresh fruit and produce in season, swimming, walking around a fair or carnival, etc.

OMG you are not a failure...I think of you as a goal to where I want to be---don't be down you need to reflect on where you used to be because I think you are doing fabulous!
