Well, I'm making it with the exercise, not doing great with the eating but not doing terrible either. I'm just trying to keep it at or below 2000 cals a day. 1600 would be ideal. I just have a big appetite. It took eating 2000-3000 cals a day to get this fat and I can't just all of a sudden start eating 1300 cals and expect to be comfortable with that. I struggle really hard to have self discipline where food is concerned so at this moment I'm just trying to focus on eating my 3 fruits and veggies, my 3 good carbs, trying to watch my portions and not doing stuff to make myself feel deprived. I have enough struggles in my life without food being something I battle with or feel deprived of.
The exercise is very helpful, I'm getting a lot out of the slim in 6 workouts. I'm only on the 2nd one and I think I'm getting really close to being ready for the 3rd. I start the third week on Monday, which means I'm almost a 3rd done with the first round of the program.
I'm super depressed today. I'm over tired and have been fighting with the boyfriend.
Tonight I'm going to do my slim in 6 and maybe go out, think I have babysitting.
Oh and there is some great news. My dear mother has found a horse that she loves and is going to buy. Horseback riding is kind of a family affair right now. My step grandmother, mother and daughter and I each have a horse we can work with now. I'm very excited to see mom's horse again and glad that she can participate in the fun now.
