Well, it’s Friday morning, my house is a mess, my in-laws are coming for the weekend, and
I SAW ABS THIS MORNING!
It was quite amazing. They’re still very well hidden below the belly button (I seem to be doing a great job of retaining the fat there, around my hips/buttocks, and thighs), but above the belly button, there’s now a solid line heading south and some definition with that. And here’s the thing: while food choices weren’t great yesterday, the common denominator the whole week was 6 meals a day. So, even if I’m surviving off Quaker Oatmeal granola bars, an indulgence of some pasta (chicken alfredo last night), and peanut butter/jelly sandwiches, if I eat 6 times a day, I’m able to keep portions small.
Now, I do realize that eating a bunch more protein helps keep my blood sugar more level and my appetite a little bit better, but if I’m eating at least 6 times a day (sometimes twice in the afternoon, but usually the 6th meal is sometime after supper), then I just AM much better. Portion sizes are controlled at least. So, I may take some pressure off myself in the protein dept for a week or two and see if I continue having results.
