I feel bad for not being here for 3 entire weeks! I haven't exactly slacked off, but haven't been here getting motivated either.
I only did 5 days of the Yoli diet. I couldn't stand to do it for 2 more days. I only ended up losing 5 pounds anyway, but that is a good kick off.
Now, the day after Christmas, I am 216, which is down 9 pounds and I don't feel that's entirely accurate because I ate more than normal yesterday, but still not out of the park. 2 pieces of apple pie was my mistake, but I'm not mad about it. It was Christmas, after all.
Today I was very stressed out from work. I just joined a website where I am a freelance writer and I apply/interview for jobs. So far I've completed 5, with the most recent 3 being done today. I've belonged to the site for a little over 2 weeks. I will get paid for the first 2 jobs on Wed, New Years Day. Not a bad way to ring in the new year, eh? :o) It's not a lot of money right now, but I'll take it. It's better than being unemployed and totally broke. So because of this, my mood has been higher, but my stress has been about the same or a touch higher. That might also be because the kids are on Christmas break and are needy. Haha. I love them so much, though, so it's okay. But needing to get up every little bit to help them, play with them, or feed them when I have a big project due the day after Christmas...stress city!! Luckily I finished everything in time and it's like a huge weight off my shoulders. I even did a quick 10 minute cardio workout and about 10 minutes of some strength training.
Overall, a really fantastic day. Hope you all have been well.
