Happy END OF CHALLENGE DAY!
Let me just get the bad news out of the way, I am up 2 pounds, BUT I think it has to do with the iron tabs I am taking messing with my digestion! ( slowing it down)
The GOOD NEWS is that I am back in the water and training again and I swam 2km last night! Whoo hoo!
It was more than I thought I could do!
My team mate and I were the only girls in the "fast lane" at the pool! LOL
Salad for dinner last night while the family had mac and cheese.
I am going to keep being mindful and keep just making the best choices, trying to find that lifestyle balance until school goes back when I can REALLY focus on getting back on The Plan and losing some pounds!
My physical is coming up in a few weeks and my doc and I are going to have a heart to heart! There is something wrong with my body - it is not showing up on the bloodwork ( besides the low Iron) ....I just keep on putting on weight! I am not even going to go there, I have said this too many times before! So...not going to repeat my whole sob story!
Only thing I can do is make the best choices day by day until my physical and then see what doc says.
If I have to throw a temper tantrum in her office to convince her that we have to get to the bottom of this, then so be it! It has been 4 years and I have gained almost 30 pounds for goodness sakes!
Anyway, enough about that.....
For the challenge, I GOT MY EXERCISE MOJO BACK! Huge celebration! Back in training - Swimming! Huge celebration - made beef stroganoff with Chia seeds which the whole family ate! EXCEPT it wasn't beef, but chicken! YAY!
Started juicing again!
Working on getting my iron up! ( blood levels)
If I was not on the challenge, I can assure you that my results would have been WAY different!
IN the first 15 days of the challenge I lost 5 pounds or so...then they came back....with friends....and I think the supplements are messing me up!
So I am just doing the best I can to get through until I see the doc....continuing with lots of salads and protein. Still only one coffee a day! YAY!
Minimal wheat for the whole challenge! Mostly gluten free.....
BUT the attitude is changing....I am starting to figure a few things out and deal with behavior patterns. So that is also a good thing!
How has your challenge been? Be honest:
What were the victories and what were your struggles! ( we can all learn from each other)
LET ME KNOW!!!
So proud of you all for reaching day 30 ! WAy to go!
