Prepare-- it's a rambling mess:
Have to admit, Getting back to the healthy eating made a huge improvement in my mood & sleep quality. Or maybe it was a combination of that and starting my birth control pills? I donít know, but finally, after a horrid week of moodiness, no sleep, lethargy, irritation I feel ďnormalĒ. I was eating like crap, TOM and just downright exhausted. Gotta keep track of stuff like this and figure it out.
I made homemade soup last night and it helped me stay full and has tons of veggies in it! I loosely followed Chef Megís southwestern soup recipe, but used less olive oil, no avocado or cilantro(I didnít have any cilantro, otherwise it would have been in there!). It turned out well and is pretty tasty!
Havenít really gotten back to my exercise regimenómy Ďbuddyí is on a road trip with her husband who is home on leave from the military and I donít have the accountability Iíve had in the pastóbut I did garden (and weed and sweat and get covered in dirt) both Sunday and Monday. I would have yesterday but it rained. I didnít realize how much work gardening was! I cleared so many weeds--- I HATE WEEDS! And my allergies were kicking my ass, but I overcame the obstacles and got a lot accomplished. I hope it doesnít rain this eveningóIíd like to go for a 4 mile walk outside. I guess I can resign myself to the treadmill if it does. I just have to DO IT! This weight isnít going to lose itself.
I had a cruddy week last week, but am trying to pull it together and not lose sight. Itís a forever change, thereís going to be both bad and good dayóbut as long as I continue on, Iíll reach my goal, maybe not as quickly as I want, but eventually.
