Bonjour, good SparkPeople!
I was going to fill y'all in on the stuff that's been happening, but when I started trying to type I just... I just can't yet I guess. I'm doing better though. Yahueh has got it under control and He's using it for His glory, so as far as I'm concerned everything is under control. Just going to keep relying on Him.
In a more SparkPeople related direction, I think I'm loosing some inches! And my arms are loosing their puffiness! Hooray! Just since Monday I've been massively increasing my protein intake (aiming for at least 130 grams) and eating waaaaaayyy more fruits and veggies than I have been (which, previously was close to nothing). I know it's recommended to log your calories 'n' stuff, but, at least for now I'm not going to do it. One, it makes me neurotic, and I'm looking for less neurosis in my life, so, yeah.... And two, I've decided to focus on nutrition at this point and getting my body in balance and not necessarily on weight; I'm quite aware that weight loss needs to happen to be fully in balance, but I think that my body is pretty beat from all my dieting-self starvation-binging cycles, I thought I should be nice to it for a change and give it what it needs instead of continually demanding things.... I'm liking the protein though, I feel strong again. I was feeling so weak before, even though I have some bigg-ish muscles (for not working out, that is...) but I can pick up heavy things much easier and taking the stairs doesn't make my legs cry as much, which is nice. I think once I get moved I'm going to take maybe a week or two to get back into going to the gym and then I want to start Jamie Easons LiveFit exercise plan. The eating clean part sounds good, and I'd like to do that too, but, small changes....
That's all from me for now. Ciao!
