Day 1

Sunday, July 21, 2013

I feel genuinely good today (for the first time in weeks). I've been getting enough sleep at the same time each night, and I think that might have something to do with it. I feel like my emotions are mine again, and not some mercurial force that has overrun my mind. I feel in control. I feel happy. Thank goodness...

: I am feeling good because of the things I did (sleep, diet, meditation, etc). I am proud of myself. I feel grateful that the emotional storm has subsided.

Starting Weight: 353.

My apartment is a mess. I cleaned up some boxes and trash from the living room, did a water change for the fish. It's not much, but it's a start. Tomorrow I will do my laundry (there's a LOT of it lol). Then I will do something the next day and the next, and it will be clean again before I know it.

Yesterday I made grass-fed beef tacos with some lean ground round, peppers, onions, black beans, spices, and homemade guac... it was good. Today I'm cooking a thai red curry with a beautiful eggplant and some green beans I got in my CSA this week. Here's the recipe:
i'll make some jasmine rice to go with it, mostly for the bf... I don't want to eat too many carbs, but I might have 1/2 cup of it.

Right now, I think I will go for a walk in the beautiful weather, in the sunshine.

Walks for the week: 1/5
Yoga/Strength Training: 1/3

Update: I did strength training with the bf.. he spotted me for bench press :)

    Glad you are feeling well again.

I have always found that for me sleep is a great healer.
