Happy Friday everyone! What could be better then a Friday to celebrate how well you are doing. After a slip up on day 4 with the stress of my mom being in the hospital and a smoothie day yesterday I am feeling back on track and ready to go! I am so glad to say that my mother is doing quite well on her recovery. I haven't measured myself but I really feel that I have lost some space around my waist! I promised myself I wouldn't weigh or measure till the end of week 3. Goodness I didn't realize it would be that hard! I have gotten a lot of feedback saying..but I'm not a blogger what can I do :/.
