I woke up this morning with just a tiny touch of DOMS, in a fantastic mood, and excited for breakfast. It's like some internal switch has flipped after just one day and I am in a headspace where I'm craving whole foods instead of wanting to stuff myself with junk. I didn't think that would happen so quickly!
It's also funny that after yesterday's hearty lowish carb breakfast and lunch, and a workout, I pretty much had to force myself to eat dinner because I just wasn't hungry. And after all that I still only ate a total of 1400 calories for the day! It's not completely surprising - I do have a lot of stored fat to live off of, and since I wasn't making my body do the insulin-spike thang it can actually access that fat and start to burn it off. But, again, I didn't know it would happen so quickly!
Maybe I have maintained some base level of fitness with my eating of whole foods and walking, even though I did gain weight eating too much sugar and carbs. Or maybe my body just has some sort of hormonal memory of what healthy feels like? I don't know, I'm just happy that this streak is off to such a good start! Fingers crossed that this good cheer carries over into school work. ;)
Happy Tuesday, y'all. And happy Sparking!
