I did my cleanse! It looked like it was successful, but only time will tell!

In the process I lost 5 pounds! However, I am expecting to gain it back since I couldn't eat for four days. I am not quite yet on a regular diet, but I am up to only having to cut out meat, dairy, and bleached flour. I haven't fully decided if I will start eating meat again at all, since I was a vegetarian before I got pregnant.

That's all for now. Hopefully I can keep my momentum going!!

A promise to my son...and to myself..

Tuesday, July 17, 2012

WOW! The past year has been life changing!

I had a baby..and he is my EVERYTHING! But that isn't the reason I gained back a little over 50 of the 90 pounds that I lost. If I am being honest with myself, it started happening before I got pregnant. I was headed down that road anyway and in fact, I gained 20 back before I even concieved. I just got SO burnt out on everything! But Nikolai is 5 months old and I have done nothing to change it. NONE of my clothes fit and my maternity clothes are even getting too tight. I am ashamed to look in the mirror. I am afraid that if I don't do something, Nikolai may be ashamed of me when he gets older. Or worse, he may follow in my footsteps!

I have gallstones and let me tell you, the pain is worse than childbirth! (okay maybe not worse, but comparable) I am not all about getting an organ removed, so my husband found a cleanse that supposedly works. So tomorrow I eat light to kick it off and then for 3 days I cleanse which involves ingesting only certain fluids. Then I gradually start ingesting solid foods. I am very excited for this. It is going to jumpstart me back into the lifestyle that I so drastically moved away from about a year and a half ago.

I want to be me again. I want my self confidence back. I want to show my son the best possible side of myself that I can. I want to be everything for him, because he deserves nothing less. And so do I.

Here's my plan

Sunday, May 01, 2011

Nothing has been seeming to work for me to get back on track. My will power for the past year has seemed to go down the tube. I eat badly, don't work out, and constantly feel terirble about it. Rather than lose, I've gained like 15 pounds in the past year.

I've been wanting to try a juice cleanse diet. I've actually been very excited about it. But I feel like it'll be so drastic that I will be setting myself up for failure rather than the jump start that I need. Plus I am worried about lacking certain nutrients (such as protein). So my awesome husband made a suggestion.

Rather than going to all juice all the time, I am going to have fruit/veggie juice for breakfast and lunch, and a sensible dinner. I am trying it starting tomorrow. We took a ton of fruits and veggies and made a gallon of juice with the juicer he bought for me.

Now I know that some days I may not be sucessful. For the first week I am going to keep a healthy snack on hand in case I get overly starving. Plus with it being teacher appreication week, I know that there will be tons of stuff brought in for us that will tempt me. I am just going to take it one day at a time. I'll do what I can do and know that every little bit helps. My goal is to eventually be able to be successful again.

I am actually excited about this! I'm not sure how long I'll do the two juice meals a day, but it won't be for too long because I'm just doing it as a cleanse. I have to see how it goes and how I feel. I won't be logging calories, because it's too hard with the juice since we put so many different fruits and veggies in there. It'll just have to be good enough that I make healthy choices.

Now as far as working out, I'm not going to set a plan yet. I start morning and afternoon tutoring this week which will take up two days a week for the next four weeks. Plus with the extra stuff I'm doing for work I'm not sure what kid of extra time I'll have. Again, I'll just take it one day at a time and fit in whatever I can.

Gosh I hope this works. Wish me luck!


Has this ever happened to you?

Tuesday, April 12, 2011

Sometimes when I do intense speed walking/jogging exercises or walk for a long period of time, I get VERRRY itchy and break out in hives. It gets so bad that I have to stop!!!

Has this ever happened to anyone else? Does anyone know what this is or how to prevent it? I can't take antihistamines because of asthma.

    It does sound like allergies.... that SUCKS!!! I used to get hives soooo bad. If they were on my feet I couln't put on a pair of shoes... but I could get them anywhere and it would swell and hurt like He**. This went on for two years, 4-6 times a month. The weird thing is... I haven't had hives now in 5 years. I don't know why.

Except Allergies of some sort. So sorry for you. emoticon emoticon

    Could it be the material in your workout clothes? Or irritation from the sweat on your skin? Just some ideas.
