Clothes, and challenges

Yeah what a title for the day, right? well it pretty much sums up my day perfectly.

Clothes: who doesnt use clothes for motivation? well my clothes of the day is fitness clothes. Im not sure what it is about fitness clothes but it motivates me beyond belief to put them on its almost like a spark of "I can do this...dont give up" motivation...anyone else like this or am I the only one?? Now that Im losing weight I love them even more because it shows my body instead of all my fat (thats getting less and less by the day!!). I used to absolutely hate them I think because it shows every little mark, fat, etc in your body but its just more fuel so that they look even better on me oh and the postive thing is they are so comfy (that is if you find the right type they have some that arent as comfortable as others)

Challenges: My first challenge was I told myself I was drinking 8 glasses (64 oz) of water and so help me I was doing it and no one was stopping me whether I had to stay up until 11:59 pm I was doing it. well do you know what?? I met that record + more and wound up with 82.7 oz of water for the day...wow I couldnt believe it when I tallied it all up...met challenge 1...
Next challenge....my mom fixed a huge thing of macaroni and cheese...now before this was one of my favorites I ate it all the time and ate quite a bit at that....I never even thought twice of having one bite. All that kept running through my mind was do you really want that fat and garbage...is it really going to do anything for you....so to say the least I really cant believe I tricked my mind its like it doesnt even want the fat food and dont ask me how I did it because I still havent quite figured that one out yet but its a great feeling.

So to say the least I had a pretty good day...just not eating enough or something I guess I need to work on getting my food up. I input it about twice a day and think I ate more then when I put it in and am like I only ate that much I need to eat some more....

My favorite items (which Im starting to find quite a bit lately that I thought I would never touch) were chicken corn dogs...has anyone tried these they are wonderful and in my opinion a little better or maybe that was putting them in the oven but they were delicious! Even hubby commented how good they were. Then the other thing is raspberries...I always said no thanks to these thinking they would be gross but Ive come to the conclusion these are delicious!!

So onto the menu for the day....

SWEET! Good for you for avoiding the Mac and cheese! That stuff is SOO bad for you! I used to eat Kraft Dinner 5 times a week or more before WW! I loved the stuff, I was addicted!....I'm proud to say I have been off the KD for 18 months...not one bite!
I know what you mean about good workout clothes! I have a pair of yoga pants that I wear walking and they are the most comfortable things in the world!
Great job with the water as well..Amber you are rockin WW!!!

Macaroni Cheese is so Yummy - you should give yourself a BIG pat on the back for resisting!
