Today reinforced what I have been discovering a little more each and EVERY day.
I am STRONG. There really is NOTHING I can't do when I commit and put my WHOLE self into it.
I power-cleaned the house this morning.
I OWNED a 2 mile, UPHILL walk and not only didn't feel like I was going to die, but felt great...and honestly think I could go out right now and do it again (!!??!) if I didn't have kids to get ready for bed.
I have burned just under 1100 calories today and am still going strong.
My food has been on the low side, but I have been so busy. I made a point to eat an apple earlier (I know it's not much) even though I had to make myself.
I've had black coffee and a sugar-free Rockstar for breakfast. Gotta make a plan for breakfast tomorrow. I have always struggled with eating breakfast. I can go ALL day and not eat, then when I do I am hungry all night. It's a terrible habit I am trying to break.
Lunch was a second sugar-free Rockstar. It's my one vice, but I have given up a 2 liter a day habit of Diet Pepst...so I am ok with wanting them once in a while. I have even cut back on those! Other than that I am strictly water or black coffee.
For dinner I made a point to do MUCH better. Diced boneless, skinless chicken breast...seasoned with Herbes de Provence, my FAV for pretty much anything. Raw broccoli with roasted red pepper hummus, and watermelon.
Figure if I get hungry later I will have carrots, or an apple.
I have decided not to weigh until my weigh in this week. I am working so hard I am not going to stress. I'm just going to let the number be a surprise. This in itself is a testament to the growth I am making. I used to be the girl that weighed every time she went into the bathroom...
Any thoughts or suggestions? Anyone see anywhere I could be doing something different or better?
How have you all done today? Anything good you did that surprised you?
Any new things you are noticing since you have been working to lose the weight or get fit/healthy. Physical or otherwise?
We can do this guys!! By working together there is NO way we can fail!
