starting to see a difference

Tuesday, August 10, 2010

I have been doing really well with my body for life program. I am starting to see definition in my thighs, and it is encouraging. I have been doing really well with my eating, except for today, I caved to my craving and snarfed a bunch of skittles. Darn those skittles and my lack of self control! I won't let that ruin my whole day though. I haven't lost a bunch of weight, but I am thinking the inches I am losing are probably more important that pounds. :)
I have been having a hard time lately with feeling depressed. I don't know if it is because of the cruddy weather we have been having....( it is August, and 63 degrees out, and cloudy) or if it is the fact that I have been eliminating sugar from my diet, and my body is perhaps addicted to the junk I enjoy eating. I also am very tired of people thinking I am pregnant. I have diastasis recti, which is separated abdominal muscles. It leads to looking pregnant all of the time. A big time bummer. Also, I missed my workout yesterday and today, because my asthma is flaring pretty bad this week. Anyway, I am feeling a bit blue. I am praying for some sun soon, and trying to have a positive attitude. I will keep you all posted on how my program is working for me. I will update you on my measurements on Friday.

    Sounds like it's a combination of reasons. I'm sure the sugar is playing a big part. I know when I go from eating a lot of it to trying to cut it out or down significantly I feel a bit down.

    I'd love your 60 degree weather right now. It's just been miserable here in Ohio, in the 90's. So humid and draining.

    I hope your spirits lift soon. Just know you are making positive changes and as you keep seeing results you should start to feel better about everything. emoticon

    Boo for the blues. I hope that the workouts are helping out a bit - I know getting the endorphins going makes a big difference for me...

    I wonder if delivering the baby activates a sweet tooth - I am tending to have a chocolate bar a day. Insanity. But it's like I must have the sugar... So, I feel you there. Heck, I feel you on the blues too. I felt like I had the baby "blahs" for a week or two around the 12-week mark. Workouts helped me...

    The thigh definition sounds delightful!! Is there anything you can do for the abs? Or is it more just avoiding certain ab exercises while you heal?
