Tomorrow is the big day

Tuesday, July 08, 2014

I shouldn't make a big deal of it ...tomorrow is my weigh in after 21 days of my detox diet. NO sugar, artificial sweeteners, dairy, soy, gluten or alcohol. OMG the things I miss most...milk in my coffee and my crazy sugar free gum addiction!

I'm going to try and stay on this as much as possible. I feel good.

I'm excited to see how much I've lost. I really have no clue as when I was gaining weight I just put on sweat pants and gave up. So I can't tell by my "clothes". I'm hoping for 10 lbs. I figure 4-5 the first week (I know mostly water) then 2 lbs each week.

I know I should not get hung up on a number, that I feel good no matter what. The best part has been not going to bed feeling like crap. Not having to put my head on that pillow with a well, I'll do better tomorrow...or it wasn't the WORST thing etc... on and on.

I feel good and that's most important.

I'm eating clean and getting exercise almost every day. So I put in the work and I want to see it reflected on the scale, but I'm not an idiot, I know sometimes that's just not the case.

I'm always tired and if you asked me I'd tell you that I sleep fine. I got to bed at 10:30ish and wake up at 6:30ish every day.
Well then I got my Fitbit which is telling me that I do not get good sleep at all. I wake up a few times a night and I'm restless for HUNDREDS of minutes at a time - who knew?!



Fitbit failure!

Wednesday, July 02, 2014

Out on my walk - about 20 minutes in I notice my fitbit app wasn't going ! ARG! Although the steps are being counted on the actual device I still wanted to see those MILES add up on the app....so I kept going. It came to like 3 miles when it was probably closer to 4. OH well, that's what being anal will get me!


Today I'm just grateful for having the time to take care of myself and eating clean.
Everyday I have to remind myself that nothing feels better than putting my head on that pillow knowing I didn't binge or obsess about food. That I don't have to "start tomorrow," or "I'll do better tomorrow," or "well...it could have been worse."

I feel at peace, that's priceless.

One week until the 21 day detox is over...although I think that I'll be adhering to most of it. I might add milk (dairy) back to my coffee even though I'm getting used to that almond milk in my coffee (I can't believe that).
My first official weigh in - one week from today...feeling a little scalaphobic, I want a good number to keep me motivated, but I'll just have to accept whatever it brings.

    I have had some recent fitbit issues too. The good news is that even though the fitbit did not recognize the correct mileage, your body still got the exercise!

  My FitBit has done that too. It's so aggravating.

A little unmotivated

Tuesday, July 01, 2014

Feeling a little unmotivated. I don't know why. I did circuit training with Chalene Extreme, my son even joined me so that was fun and 36 minutes of exercise.
Food is good
Just no creativity for writing today.
Tropical Storm Arthur is sitting off the coast bringing lots of rain. Hopefully by the time my husband comes home we can do our walk.

Day 12 Detox

Monday, June 30, 2014

Another day! I feel pretty good. Anything is better than binging and eating crap. There is no better feeling than being able to put my head on my pillow knowing that I took care of myself. No guilt, no promise of doing better or starting tomorrow.

I'm now more than half way through the 21 day detox.

The best part is my husband is also along for the ride. Although not doing the detox he is logging his food and exercise. I'm so happy that he's doing this with me!
