I don't know what has gotten into me but I like it! It's been 2 days (yeah, I know, pretty lame, huh?) of pure unadulterated perfection. I'm a happy girl. My diet has been dead on. I've added a lot of whole grains, fruits & veggies, controlled portions, drank water & followed my exercise plan. Reading what other people (successful weight loss bloggers & athletic friends) eat & consider "normal" meals has helped open my eyes to the importance of proper fuel for the body. I feel energetic & motivated.
Changes I've made - stopped drinking coffee, added quinoa & lentils and healthy granola bars, and actually eating the fresh fruit I buy instead of waiting till it rots to throw it away. I'm doing Zumba 3 days a week & kinda/sorta strength 2 times a week. I hurt my shoulder so this morning I did abs & thighs. I gotta take it easy on the shoulder for a week. :-(
I've even had enough wiggle room on the nutrition tracker to have a portion controlled bowl of ice cream with chocolate syrup & maraschino cherries. MmmMMmm!!
I can't believe shorts, tank tops & swim suit weather is creeping up on us. I wanna be ready!
