I'm back in NYC! Woot!  I can't believe how quickly three weeks flew by!  It was sad saying good-bye, but it feels great to be back at home and getting back in my own routine.  I'm now 10 days into Medifast, and I am THRILLED with the results I have had so far.  I know I went off track early in my trip to Texas, so I am sure I gained a bit of weight before starting Medifast, so the fact that I am down 4 pounds despite that fact, is AWESOME!  And motivating! 

I never had an actual work out during my trip.  I had hopes to get on the treadmill, but the treadmill was moved to the garage so a playroom could be created, making it inconvenient and unnecessary.  I will say that for probably 85% of every day, I was on my feet!  I barely sat down friends.  Now I know the secret to losing baby weight…have more kids! LOL.  As I sit here typing this I am thirsty to exercise and will be doing Pilates just as soon as I finish sharing with you.

I am convinced that Medifast can and will get me to my goal weight and expediently as well!  When I did my weight loss projections based on the minimum weight loss expected, I will be in my most ideal shape by my 4 year anniversary in June!  I will blow past my goal weight before Zion's 2nd birthday!  Can you tell how excited I am?

Before I know it, I will be looking like this:

My sister has a fridge that is a great ego booster, I call it her "Skinny" fridge.  Every time I saw my reflection in it, I was thrilled with how a skinny/fit Courtney will look!
This Week:

I'm proud of these choices:

I'm staying disciplined and not cheating on Medifast!  
I'm drinking tons of water again.
I made it through my stressful travel day without breaking my Medifast.

I'd like to work more on:

Continuing to cut back on coffee, perhaps switching to only one 8oz cup of coffee + adding one 8oz cup of Green Tea instead of my 2nd cup of coffee.
I'm adding exercise back this week, and I am really hoping to not overdue it and since I have only been "functionally active" for the last three weeks. 

I totally cheated when:

I got home and this morning I had no Splenda or sugar substitutes, so I added a teeny bit of spicy cocoa and Agave nectar to my coffee eek!!

How did you do this week?
