Feeling a little better today. Still very drained though. Managed to get in 120 minutes of exercise yesterday, mostly in little spurts and light exercise. But it was better than sitting on my butt all day long.
Yesterday was also the beginning of a new challenge for me with my healthy habits. I decided to try the Metabolism Miracle, I fit into about every little check box they had. I couldn't believe it. Everything fit me. So yesterday was Day 1 of Step 1. Hoping it goes well for me, yesterday I wanted chocolate and pasta, I did good and didn't eat any of it. But it will definitely be a test for me, since everything we have does have carbs in it, yikes! LOL! You don't realize how much until you really start reading labels. WOW! So will be a big change for me. So I think tonight I will go grocery shopping pick up the usual stuff for the family, and pick up a few alternatives of the same things for me, as well as um, yeah veggies for me. I am not a veggie person, I have no idea how to cook fresh asparagus, broccoli or brussel sprouts either. We thankfully already eat a lot of lean meats, so that part is covered. But no cereal for breakfast, no peanut butter toast, yikes. So big change, big change. Although I am drained today, I don't feel horrible after yesterday other than the fact that I was sick Monday and Tuesday. If this plan does indeed work, then it should be no problem to be close to goal weight if not goal weight by August 16th for my early vow renewal of 10 years. I am so excited and yet so nervous. I only want people that love us both dearly there, I only want a smaller crowd than my husband intends, I want to be skinnier than I am, but also healthier and stronger and happier as well. We have so much we need to do it's unbelievable and not all of it is related to that. So busy busy for sure. And definitely will go by better if I stop getting sick.
Today, I will increase the intensity of my workouts but be smart enough to listen to my body so I don't overdo it. And definitely make sure I get some "me" time in, thinking of maybe reading a book or drawing.
As for my other issues, still are problems for me. Not sure what to do about them. I want to go to the doctor, but they always tell me it's in my head that's causing any of my problems. But I don't have an easy way to switch doctors and then have to start all over explaining. It's very frustrating.
So plan for today:
Stay on new plan
Don't get to distracted about what I eat
Play with kids
Get in exercise
Think positive thoughts
