Month of April
Monday, April 01, 2013
I just weighed for the 1st time in about 3 weeks. I liked being able to go that long distance without thinking about my weight or anything.
The past couple weeks, I got to focus solely on my walk and personal relationship with my Savior Jesus Christ. I was not distracted by the scale. I absolutely love not being distracted by the scale! I didn't do anything different this past month, EXCEPT eating late at night and staying up late at night. I hope this will quickly become an old habit, and I can get back on my usual bedtime schedule..
About 3 weeks ago, I went to the doctor and found out that I have an all nut allergy and shortly after remembered I just can't handle egg yolks--testing the waters to see if it's egg whites too. This is in addition to not being able to have gluten, high fructose, and watching out for dairy (lactose intolerance). I have found "Allergy Free" recipes to be something that I am definitely keeping in mind for the future. I bought one cookbook, and finally got the ingredients to begin dabbling with it a little bit.
I really am hoping to try to exercise. Right now for me, exercise is when I go somewhere on the bus. Fantastic! But... I need to start doing something light a couple days a week. I began doing the "Free Step" on the Wii Fit. Hoping to continue that a few times a week. I am working on convincing myself that in the beginning it will be a very slow process, only 10-15 minutes every other day. I am already tempted to do a little bit today, but I know I need to *take it slow*.
Eating: My goals for eating this upcoming month is to add in protein and fiber. Also, hoping plan before eating. I am not good at planning, so it will be a growing process for me.
Anyway, that's all that is going on with me.
Weight Lost to-date: 54 pounds.
This Past Week: 2.5 pounds.
All by fixing my eyes on my Creator.
Seeking to grow closer to Him and Honor Him in how I choose to eat, by not overeating and eating for the wrong reason.
All of the weight is coming off, because of GOD and God alone!!!
