Hey, my friends! :)) Day 19 here.
How is everyone's weekend going?
I am heading off to a (laaaaate in the game) holiday party, and planning to pre-game my food situation, and bring Oro-friendly snacks. It's all about preparation, right? :) Available food will include: cupcakes, cheese, crackers, waffles, cookies, cookie dough, beer. No thanks!
In other news, I have a confession to make.
Whole30 says not to weigh or measure yourself during the duration of your game. >__>; Well. I cheated. But I was looking down at my cookie pouch, and had convinced myself it was BIGGER. That somehow I was getting FATTER despite eating the best I've eaten in the last... god, probably year.
So I got out the measuring tape. I'd taken a measurement of hips, thighs, bust, and waist on Jan 3rd. I was going to start getting more exercise then (half succeeded...) and wanted a baseline.
You'll notice I don't have a measurement for my cookie pouch on that list (and in case anyone's wondering, that's that lovable (gerrr) balloon of fat that sits right below my belly button.)
Turns out I've lost half an inch off my hips, one and a half inches off my waist, and half an inch of my thighs. I'll take it!
Conclusion: My cookie pouch is likely not diminished, but also likely not larger either. My frame of reference just shrunk!
