It took a week. It took a week of working through the cravings the crap I ate brought to the surface. It was a war raging and though I lost one or two of those battles, ultimately the war was won. I got back to eating basics - where I was in January, where I had so much energy and felt great and working my butt off (Turbo Jam and Kettlebells) to get the crap out of my system from the 7th when we celebrated my son's birthday. It took a week to get the weight back down and finally moving again (.7 lbs but in the right direction so I'm pleased).
Better yet, I've lost 2 inches on my waist and hips, I'm down from a 44G to a 42DDD in the last month. I learned a valuable lesson about how my body deals with the junk/crap foods. First it didn't take much to make the scale jump up,next it takes A LOT of work to get it off and I'd rather put that hard work into losing more weight not trying to get back down to where I was before I put it in my mouth, next something in those foods (I don't care what) triggers my asthma (until then I hadn't even needed my inhaler since I have been eating clean and drinking my water not alone I've been 3 months off my daily med), and lastly since eating it I've been moody, unhappy (bit of depression maybe a better wording), and tired (sleep and energy wise). Time to get back to where I was before, feeling good and feeling energized when I get up in the morning till I go to bed at night.
As I said above I've started back with ketttlebells and turbo jam. I have to wrap and support my elbow and if it starts to hurt just put down the kettlebell or if that doesn't help switch the exercise to something else that doesn't require much arm movement=treadmill.
So instead of giving flowers or chocolate yesterday, hubby told me to go clothes shopping with that money. So I did. I got new exercise pants, a spaghetti strap tank top (on 75% clearance!), I exercise in them. I had been needing a new pair of pants but was putting it off but running on the treadmill having to constantly hike up your pants... Though I know hubby was hoping for something sexier and I did try things on, but it wasn't meant to be and I'm not disappointed or upset about it I know that in time it will happen.
One thing I don't get is why most bras that the big girl stores are carrying are padded. I'm sorry, I just don't get it cause my girlz are big enough I don't need the extra padding, it makes them get in the way even more. LOL And honestly I didn't find it flattering to my figure when I put a top on, it just made them look a lot bigger. But it was fun yesterday just trying clothes on that were a size or two smaller.
Time to go for a run on the treadmill. I had wanted to do a kettlebell workout but I have to work tonight so I don't want to push my elbow. So tomorrow I will do kettlebells since I have the weekend off.
