- Cardio + Core Work + Strength Training
- Track all food and stay within calorie range
I met my daily goals for yesterday and it was not easy. As all my "2013's So Bright" teammates know, emotional eating is an issue for me and after the passing of my friend Amy yesterday morning, it took quite the conscious effort to not turn to food for comfort sometimes. But I overcame. It was a combination of self-control and that kind of sadness that makes you not want to eat. But I stayed balanced and controlled. She wanted us to "Keep Calm and Carry On" after she left this world. That's what I'm trying to do. I continued with my regular workout routine for yesterday and took care of my body.... Another lesson she always taught me. What better way to pay tribute to one of my dearest friends than to cherish each day and appreciate the body God gave me? Taking this one day at a time is the only way I can do this. I think she is with me, supporting me in my journey and lifting me up when I feel low, just like she did when she was here.
