Hello! Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

Due to poor planning and the holiday, I don’t have a Skinny Recipe for today. But I have a really fabulous one in the works, and it’ll actually come with a great giveaway too! So be sure to come back next Saturday for all of that :)

Today, I just wanted to pop in and let you know how my week has gone. Which is… okay.

It’s been great in that I’ve met my one, solitary goal every single day: work out and eat breakfast first thing in the morning. That has happened, so I feel good there. I’m really trying to develop a habit of waking up early to fit in my work out. One of you left me a comment last week that really stuck with me, because it put into words EXACTLY what I’m trying to accomplish with this small goal…

Which is… to make exercise and eating breakfast so routine that I don’t have to think about it. I don’t want to have to waste my brain power on working so hard to get to the gym and eating a decent breakfast. If I can make that an automatic behavior, I can focus on the more challenging parts of weight loss– like afternoon cravings and late night snacking. Serious brain power needed there.

This week was not so great, however, in terms of actual weight loss. I actually am on the incline, which is not super pleasant :P . But…. I’m going to keep plugging away! The only other option is to give up, right? And I can’t do that. So, I’ll just keep trying. And maybe one of these days, I’ll be able to say “Hey! Something is working! I’m doing it right!”

Until then, I just want to say thanks to those of you who read these posts. Thank you so much for your support. Can you believe I haven’t had a single negative comment? I think it’s amazing that I haven’t had one person leave a comment saying, “Hey! Stop making so many desserts fat-so!” I was totally preparing myself for that, and it’s been a relief to not see it (yet)!

Make sure you come back next week! I’ll have a recipe and a giveaway you are NOT going to want to miss!
