The day started well with a nice loss of a pound on the scales, exactly what I'd hoped for. One more pound and I'll finally be within the "healthy" BMI range. I really can't wait, that would be my first major goal ticked off. It's really annoying me that I let myself go enough to become medically unhealthy and overweight, but it's also spurring me on with my lifestyle change.
I wore a white t-shirt today that I bought in October but always felt way too self-conscious to wear as it seriously showed off my tummy bulge. Guess what? It was actually a bit loose!! And I didn't have to suck my stomach in to the point of breathlessness, just reminded myself to stand upright and tall and there were no hanging bulging bits anywhere to be seen!!
The workout video was a bit more challenging today, as I couldn't do all of the exercises. Turns out my wrist isn't doing quite as well as I thought it was and I can't crawl on all fours just yet, but I tried my very best and went for a couple of walks as well as a sprinting session in the evening.
Food wasn't too bad today, as it was soup day. I really love soup for dinner, as it's so filling, comforting, yet ridiculously low in calories. I had sorrel soup which I hadn't had in about a decade (that's because you can't buy it anywhere and I have no idea what garden sorrel looks like and probably would have picked up something poisonous if left to my own devices). I did however have quite the urge to snack today, though as long as I'm within my calorie range I'm happy at the end of the day.
Personally, the day was quite challenging yet again. I'm struggling to make myself think about anything but the breakup and it's really getting on my nerves. Then again, it's only been a week and I'm really really fighting to make the most of what I have and appreciate the course my life is taking. I firmly believe that time will heal my wounds, though I wish I could speed it up a little bit already.
