****30 DAY CHALLENGE****
1. blog progress/setbacks
2. drink water EVERY DAY not just weekdays.
3. Avoid alcohol like the plague
4. better balance on veggies over fruits
5. lean meats & protein galore.
7. log calories
8. Run once/week

(Ok, time seems to be DRAGGING now!!!) I did feel very devil-may-care last night, and I did NOT log my calories (maybe i'll go back in and do that today) but I did manage to keep it together pretty well. Fortunately I am still in the frame of mind to steer very clear of gluten and processed foods, so the cookies & crap I keep on hand for the family didn't tempt me at all. Now, if I'd had some gluten free brownies....hoo boy, I would have eaten the whole pan.

TMI alert here, but coincidentally, my handy dandy My Days app tells me it is ovulation time, so no wonder i feel "off" (less confident in my body, craving chocolate & sugary stuff, a little heavier than normal). Nothing to do about it but plod through. I do have two classes today (already did my Sentao combo class....and sweat up a STORM. Yowza) so I'll be more likely to drink TONS of water, and will feel good about the calories burned.

I sure do wonder where summer went. The weather here has been COLD and damp. Not that this made my boss turn up (or off) the air: I'm sitting here in my office wrapped in a blanket AND wearing my winter coat over it!!!! A very professional look, this. emoticon

    Hormones MUST be managed! They are pretty major to our moods too! I hope you can get through this cycle in a healthy way!!!

    I really wish I could join you for Sentao!!! I'm so missing out! emoticon

    I live in an area that doesn't offer much gluten free stuff so it helps me stay more honest than I would otherwise. LOL.

    My hardy amaryllis are going to bloom at least 7-14 days early due to the weather!!

    Oh, I could go for a pan of brownies too, yum! Good thing I'm too busy to make any, lol. You are doing great! See your ups and downs aren't even your fault, it's the hormones. I bet in the cold office you wish you were older so that you could have a hot flash now and then to warm up, he he. No, nobody wants those, but there will be a day when the hormones don't jump up and down as often, there is good and bad with every stage in life.

    Hang in there sunshine and keep up the great progress!
