So feeling better today. Now my nose is running so I'm thinking the sinus infection was real. Anyway, last night I was SO HUNGRY! But I stuck with the congee cleanse. Mostly because I liked the dinner. I DID at some pepper. Surprise...My carb/fat/protein mix has been almost right on the money since following the cleanse. Even the fat. And I've not added ANY fat (oil, butter, etc); it's all coming from the food, I guess the nuts for the most part. That's the main motivator for staying on the cleanse. It's putting me right where I should be without too too much thinking or angst on my part. I was hungry again at bedtime and went a few rounds with the voices in my head. What I like is that I gave myself three options, all decent, but I ended up with the one that kept me in "my numbers" for the day. And it was also what I really WANTED. kinda cool. Anyway, today it's taken me until lunchtime to finish my breakfast. hmmm. maybe not a good plan, but I'm not starving and I've been busy. Headed out for my lunchtime walk then lunch. Looking forward to the weekend.

First bump in the road

Thursday, May 09, 2013

Feeling crappy. I'm certain a big part of it is my psuedo sinus infection. Also, I'm on day 4 of the congee cleanse which starts 3 days of more restrictive eating, working up to a fast on day 7 and working out of the fast on days 8-10. I'm modifying a bit but trying not to feel guilty and like I'm being "bad"; hence the bump. This is my head issues coming up as usual. My intent was NOT to follow the cleanse religiously but to use it as a jump start for a week then transition to sparkpeople's two week Spark Solution. So, there. Bleh. This is one of those times when I need to just suck it up. Quit whining and be happy with my progress. My body is feeling so much better in just 3 days. I've lost weight and I have more energy. Last night was the first in a looong time that I WANTED to go to the gym. That's good, right? Need to push back the Nuns jabbering in my head! These things are good enough, no reason to get crazy thinking I need to be doing more.

Sinus infection or cleansing?

Tuesday, May 07, 2013

Am used to the foggy brain when detoxing but not sure about the stuffy head and fever. It came on suddenly, completely out of the blue yesterday. Could hardly eat last night. Don't mind the food on this 10 day routine; it's all very yummy and healthy stuff. It's the BLAND that's killing me! And the congee. Although I love rice, I can't eat much of it at a time. And there are no portion sizes on the cleanse list. It's okay, I'm journaling and tracking which I've not done in too long. That's the idea, to get back in the habit. So...onward.


Starting a new chapter

Day one of the congee cleanse in process. So far, I'm incredibly FULL. Makes perfect sense, it's all congee and organic veggies. Couldn't manage the chicken at lunch - dry and no spices. I think that's the hardest part so spices. I get it, I just don't love it. But only 7-10 days and I'll be back on the healthy road. Also managed a walk over lunch hour. Finally. I really did miss them.

Taking my own advice

Sunday, June 06, 2010

OK. I've lost a little over 40 pounds in five months and met my first major goal. I think I've been a little wacky because I've not really defined a realistic second major goal. I had told myself to just get here and then see what happens. If I do that, I sort of expect to continue to lose at the same pace. Now, I'm adjusting and making my second goal to be losing 2-4 pounds/month, continue to lose inches and see if I can lose 20 more pounds by my 1 year sparkaversary. In addition, I'm still working toward my first 5K in September and I'm starting the 100 push up challenge. So there. I feel better already. Needed to take my own advice and focus on living, not the scale.
