Quest For My Pretty - Weekly NOT-a- Weigh-In

As you know, today is my last day on the Shakeology cleanse so I am not going to weight myself for you today. That would be a little silly. Instead I want to focus on accomplishments over the last week.
  • My friend Kristi started Turbo Jam!!! I inspired someone I guess! That makes me want to keep going.
  • Last week I fit into a dress I haven't worn in 2 years.
  • Over the weekend I put on my Gap Skinny Jeans (size 16 I think) and realized they were my baggiest pair of jeans that I own.
  • Standing in a shadowy hallway looking at myself in the mirror with my sports bra on I can see abdominal muscles forming (just don't turn on the lights - then I can't see the contrast at all). 
  • I worked the hell out of a softball practice while on a cleanse (and out-did my husband, I think). 
  • I wore my Ann Taylor Loft dress to work and really saw how loose it was in a full length mirror. Couldn't stop looking at myself because it was amazing to see it well and truly loose.
  • A dress I purchased from Target for my Japan trip last October that has ALWAYS been just a smidgen uncomfortable around the arms is not - it fits perfectly. I think I can thank Turbo Jam 3T for that one.
 I feel really good.

Actual Weight In will resume next week. I think that will give time for the Cleanse loss to stabilize and we'll know how much was water weight and how much was actual weight.
