I'm on day four of my staycation and I'm feeling a bit sad. I go back to work on Monday. I've been having a great time and I hate for it to end so soon. Today was the first day in a long time I woke up without having an upset stomach. I consider that to be a triumph. It actually felt weird to not have an upset stomach in the morning.
Yesterday was a very bad day for my stomach. Everything I ate upset my stomach. It was not a good day in that sense. I didn't work out because the upset stomach left me feeling a bit weak.
I started today out great with an early morning workout. I did two Leslie Sansone DVDs. I did a three mile one and a four mile one. I felt great after it was all said and done. I had a bunch of energy and I felt encouraged. I know I can do this. I need to take things one day at a time.
I slightly modified this slow and steady challenge. I pushed the end up by one month to coincide with my family reunion. I want to make my goal by mid-July 2012. That would be in time for my family reunion in Washington, DC. The end result is a difference of one month. I now have a calorie range of 1,850 to 2,200 calories a day. I'm feeling very positive right now and that's a good thing.
