Getting a late start with my blog. quadratic equations... hate them. Even home schooling mothers look forward to the start of summer. If my son doesn't get going though, he will be doing school all summer... sigh.
So my juice fasting is going good. I am staying strong. I weighed myself though this morning and it is unchanged from Monday. hmmm. I am going to stop with any fruit for a while to see if I can kick it into gear again. I was doing a bit after my workouts, but they were very little, perhaps about 1/2 a frozen peach, 2 strawberries, 1 cup almond milk smoothy that I added a scoop of protein powder to. Calorie wise it was about 300 which isn't a lot, but maybe the carb count was just enough to stop the weight loss. I could make it with water instead of almond milk which might do OK since the protein powder is low carb.
It could also be because I have been lifting weights this week and other muscle building stuff. I could be retaining fluid due to injured muscles. The 30 day shred of Jillian's was a killer yesterday, but not as bad as the pain from the over abundance of squats from when I did the ea sports. I was planning on a walk today, but there's a major snow storm and the road is one big mud mess. I thought Spring was here. My daffodils are buried.
I am so happy. The scale didn't show what I wanted and I wasn't freaked out! I still want to do the fasting and I am still dedicated to getting healthy. To be honest, I dearly need clothes, and I have refused for a while to buy any at the size I am wearing now. What little I have is looking extremely tacky. I need to fit into my smaller clothes. It is a huge incentive to lose the weight. See, I am surrounded by my special online friends for support and also, supported with the fear of my clothes becoming indecent. There is no way I can not do this.
That said, the smells from supper cooking is wafting my way. I need to make some more juice and start filling up.
thanks for the support.
