After the gigantic chocolate-fudge-smothered-in-ice cream-and-fudge sauce incident last Saturday, I wholly expected to have wicked cravings this week while I de-toxed. Surprisingly, I have had none.
Except for a dream I had! In my dream, we were at a kid's birthday party, I believe it was Emilio, my 7 year old, who was attending. And what is mommy doing during the party? Going through all the goody bags and stealing all the candy that I liked! Then, I was telling Emilio all about it, which ones I loved and why.
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH so glad I woke up from that one!!!!

Saturday night, we took my dad out to dinner to celebrate his 68th birthday. Some of you know the struggles my dad has gone through these last few years (cancer/depression/anxiety). He has not been to a restaurant in years, literally. So, for him to ask to go out to eat was major cause for celebration, birthday or not!!
We took him to Black Angus Steakhouse, great wine, great prime rib, great....cake. Which made me feel like My dad wanted me to celebrate with him, and I obliged, it was the least I could do given what he has been through. In the whole scheme of things, cake is a small gesture of my love for him. And, let me tell you, this cake was amazing, chocolate fudge cake topped with vanilla ice cream and fudge sauce.
So, I tripped, I fell and I am getting back up. I was physically sick yesterday, it was a bit of an overload on my body, it is just not accustomed to such decadence! I feel a bit better today and I am definitely back on induction levels for the next month. I will start another exercise challenge today since I kind of fell off there, too.
It will all work out, I know it will, and the look on my dad's face was worth the whole night. He even cried when he read the cards we wrote for him. He is an amazing person and father and I am so happy to have him "back"!

Someone asked me why I was doing these specific challenges and why I was posting about it, everyday. My reason? It takes approximately 21 days to change a habit. I had fallen in to a very bad habit of exercising here and there and I want to get out of that pattern. I want to prove to myself that I can exercise consistently and thereby, see great results. I am bound and determined to get to goal this year and my lifestyle is on track, I have no problems there. However, I need to workout, at least 5 days a week. So, by personally challenging myself, I am aiming to change my bad habit.
Brisk walk with some great hill work for 70 minutes
All strength exercises completed
This morning I am going for a long (2+ hours) walk with my friend by the beach ;)
