Look what I won from MizFit! I am so excited - I loved Hungry Girl's first cookbook, and I cannot wait to see what she has in her new one! Thank you, Carla and Lisa!
I have to tell you, this could not have come at a better time. I really needed a boost. You might have noticed that I haven't posted anything since Sunday...I have been in a bit of a bad mood. You see, I'm getting impatient. Restless. Irritable. Discontent. Not with my diet, although to call it a diet feels kind of odd now. It's the way I eat. And I'm fine with it, this healthy, mostly-clean eating. I feel good and I've lost the desire to eat Taco Bell and other formerly delicious junk.
I'm just feeling pissy that this is taking so long! I'm coming up on a year since I started this journey, and while I have come a long way during this time, I still have a long way to go.
I'm loving my workouts, and yet at the same time, I'm getting mad at myself because my muscles aren't showing. I was watching Dancing with the Stars on Monday night (what can I say, it's my guilty pleasure) and the co-host, Samantha Harris, was in a halter dress that showed her upper arms and shoulders and damned if her muscles didn't look so nice and defined and I want that for me NOW! While I can feel my muscles growing, I can barely see them because there is still so much flab covering them. Yes, I am having a temper tantrum. It's not fair! ::stomps foot, slams door, pouts:: Logically, I know that there is not much else I can be doing. As the weight comes off, the muscles will eventually appear. But this just sucks right now.
Oh, and Jen at Prior Fat Girl is giving away granola - go here and enter!
