Today is amazing for many reasons.
The weekend was awesome and it put me in such a positive mood for the day.
Saturday consisted of sleeping in
Christmas Shopping (Pretty much done!!)
and crossing things off our 24 Days of Togetherness countdown:)
It was wonderful. We ended the night at Chipotle then came home to make Christmas cookies:)
I made my version of these and dom made peanut butter m&m cookies.
Sunday I worked with my sister and that was great because she’s great:)
After work we went to a Christmas party with my old co-workers and it was so fun and great to see some old friends:)
Another amazing thing. I’m on day six of no calorie counting!! I’ve been counting for over 2 years. It was helpful at first but I feel it’s been doing more harm than good the past several months and it just drives me CRAZY and it was time to quit it. I’ve tried to several times and this time it’s working. I made a decision last week to quit, said a little prayer in my head that I would be able to do it, and I did it! I’ve heard people say how freeing it is to finally be able to quit counting calories and let me tell you, they are right! It’s a strange amazing feeling! It made going out to eat on Saturday night so much more enjoyable as well as enjoying a couple of cookies Saturday night without worrying so much about the numbers. I feel great as well. I had so many worries about quitting. Stupid things like I will all of the sudden gain weight because I will be eating too much! Or I won’t be eating enough and all of my hard work in the gym will be worthless, etc. Well those things don’t seem to be happening. If anything I’ve been able to listen to my body more and eat when I need to and don’t eat when I’m not hungry instead of relying on getting x amount of calories during the day. I’m just so grateful:)
Another reason today is AMAZING:
I had such a good lower body workout today full of leg presses, squats, leg extensions, etc. I’m thinking I’ll be sore tomorrow.
I’ve been increasing weight on several things pretty consistently lately (Plantpower, baby!) including today! Whoop whoop! 🙂 I struggle with added muscle in my legs but I’ve been seeing some muscle sneak in! Feels good to be reaching my goals.
So that’s why today is great for me:)
What is making your day amazing?
