This is a day early because I'll be out of town this weekend attening my BFF's wedding. I'll be singing an original song that was written for her wedding and written specifically for my voice. Pretty dang cool stuff. I haven't seen my BFF in around 3 or more years (she moved away), so I know she'll be blown away my weight loss. She was always an awesome supporter of mine and I simply cannot wait to celebrate her special day with her. I'm not sure if I'll have time to go on Spark, so I thought I'd do this now.
Nutrition = Pretty decent and also pretty bad. It's so hard. This whole enterprise (i.e., Losing weight, maintaining weight, maintaining a healthy lifestyle) is HARD. I find it increasingly frustrating and at times I simply stop caring. I realize this isn't the positie thinking that Spark constantly preaches about, but I'm really frustrated. I never expected things to continue to be hard and I never expected to not be at my goal weight range a year later. I feel like a failure sometimes, like I don't even deserve to tell people that I've lost 100lbs because I guess in reality I haven't. I DID, but I don't NOW.
Water Intake = Excellent.
Exercise = Dancing in the show.
Clothing Fit, Inches Lost = A couple of my 12s are snug, pretty disappointing.
Stress Level/Exhaustion = Now that rehearsals are beginning to pick up, my exhaustion level has been pretty high as to be expected. Any chance I get I'm napping. My stress level has subsided quite a bit which is a nice change.
What I'm Grateful For:
I'm grateful for the ability to read books. Books take me away and give me a chance to truly relax. Did I mention I love books? HA!
