Win of the Week: Jessica now fits back into her skinny jeans! That is a reason to celebrate! We all have those few articles of clothing we hang on to in the hopes of fitting into them someday! Well.....Jessica actually fits into her favorite skinny jeans again. She was pretty happy and wore the jeans a few night in a row out of sheer pride. LOVE IT!
Lesson Learned: Holiday Weekend + Guests In Town = Lots of Beer, Food & Celebrating. Yikes! It is SO HARD to follow a diet and exercise plan with a guest in town over a holiday weekend that revolves around BBQ's.....and honestly you don't want to pass those moments up. So while Jessica didn't lose weight she didn't gain it either which is pretty exciting. We will just incorporate a more strict regiment next week.
My Recommendation for Holiday Weekends:
- Eat before you go to BBQ's so you're not STARVING when you get there. If you are famished when you arrive it is likely you will have one piece of pie too many.
- Meet up with people after everyone is done eating. If you just don't have the willpower (that is me) then arrive a few hours after the party starts. Then you won't be tempted at all....This of course is the less fun option....
- Limit beer! The term "beer belly" was not created from the lack of drinking beer. It is empty calories, has no nutritional value and LOADED with calories. Check out my BBQ beer recommendations from a previous post HERE.
