Today at school was the Aloha Show. It was suggested that we wear aloha attire, for those on the mainland that would be a nice Hawaiian shirt for the men and muu muu's for the women. I have a muu muu that I really love but that is fitted and it had gotten a little tight. Last weekend I realized that if I watched what I ate and worked out I could fit into that dress by today. So I did. I worked out every day, twice most days. I walked the dogs every night and I watched what I ate. I didn't necessarily count calories and I ate whatever I wanted, just a little bit of them instead of a lot. Today I put the dress on and it fit just fine. Woo Hoo. Maybe I need to have a little goal every week to keep me on track.
I have found that not obsessing over numbers seems to be working much better for me. I get so hung up in the numbers I lose track of the whole reason for counting calories. After a while numbers just become numbers, 4396841, whatever..... Eating sensibly and watching my portions seems to be the ticket for me and I need to remember that.
