Yesterday was a very difficult day for me. I didn't eat much food, but what I did eat was not healthy for me. I felt tremendously guilty. I have gained back 3 pounds based on weighing in on my weigh in day. I have not been focusing well lately either. I was really worried that I was losing the spark, especially since my once iron willpower seems to be waning.
Today I started the day on a healthy note. I ate a decent breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I took all of my supplements. I got out in my garden and enjoyed the sun. I cleaned the house and got five loads of laundry done. I have a renewed spirit and I am resetting my weight loss plans. I can and will do better.

Today I went outside to water my garden. I didn't do any more planting because it was over 80°F today where I live. But I did have a nice surprise waiting for me outside. I had my first red, ripe tomato ready for picking. I can't wait to have a salad and taste it. I have noticed an improvement in my mood too since I planted this flower, herb, veggie, and fruit garden. I look forward to going outside every day to see what is blooming or growing. Gardening is a hobby that I am really enjoying and I'm growing everything organic too. So I figure that having my own garden can also help with my losing weight both from a healthy eating and exercise perspective. I'm hoping that my garden yields nice fruit and veggies all Spring and Summer.

So, okay I have fibromyalgia which means I have pain and fatigue every day. It is a struggle for me to get my daily tasks done and get in some exercise too. Yesterday I way overdid it. I took my first ever pilates class. It was classical pilates and taught by a trainer who knows me well. I had trouble doing several things because my core is so week, but with practice I know I'll improve.
Also, yesterday was the first day of Spring and I decided to tackle a rather large garden bed outside of my house in the backyard. I spent 4 hours gardening. I planted 28 plants and still have 12 more to plant. I planted tomatoes, peppers, and zucchini and many colors of flowering plants. I also planted two kinds of mint in a container since mint is known to be very invasive. I can't wait to flavor my water and iced tea with fresh mint.
I woke up today and could barely move. Everything hurts. I so rarely have good days that I overdid it yesterday doing both pilates and so many hours of gardening. I wish I were normal and had good days more often. I have a good day once or twice a month and when I do, I do as much as I possibly can.
Okay, this time I learned an important lesson about pacing myself, lol. But still, I planted an awesome garden on the 1st day of Spring AND tried a new hour long exercise class. I am really proud of myself even though I am paying for it today!
