Decade Goal Reboot, Day 11
Thursday, April 11, 2013
Didn't mean to skip blogging yesterday but it was a really busy day at work so it happened.
I didn't get a walk right after my post on Tuesday, but I did get one later in the day. Saw my chiropractor and then my osteopath and got a few things feeling better. My osteopath asked how I was feeling (as usual) and I told her I'd been off sugar for 9 days and was eating pretty healthy besides that and had a couple days of exercise and before I could finish she said "and you're not feeling better yet are you?" and as you know if you've been reading my blog, no I hadn't been. At least not as "better" as I should've felt for more than a week off sugar and a couple days of exercise. She got things shifted and settled and flowing again and yesterday I felt a lot better and today I still feel pretty good.
I did have a big dinner last night, but not as big as it could've been. I saved up my calories and had a tiny breakfast and a tiny lunch so I didn't go over my calories for the day either. I did have a little dessert, M ordered the apple crisp with a scoop of ice cream on top and I had about 6 bites of it. It was heavenly. And today, I'm not really having any sugar cravings, which is good. I plan to not have any other sweets this month, except possibly a bite of cake for M's 40th b-day. That's at the end of the month so even that would still make my only 1 or 2 days of the month having sweets. So far, so good.
I didn't get a walk in at all yesterday, and broke my 4 day streak of 5000+ steps. But today I got a walk in, so I'm back over 5000 steps (or I will be by tonight). I might even get a second walk in after Pilates tonight, but that might make dinner kinda late so we'll see. I haven't made pancakes since M got back from his 4 weeks in Portland so I'm making breakfast for dinner tonight. Which means BACON! I know, not the healthiest of dinners, pancakes and bacon. But I had a banana for breakfast and a broccoli/black beans/brown rice bowl for lunch so it'll still be a good day.
I still want to weigh, to see if I'm making progress. Cuz I can't tell yet on my own. But in the past, every time I've cut out sugar, I've lost weight. Maybe only a half pound a week, but that's still down. I'm probably not exercising enough to be losing 1.5 pounds a week (which is what it will take for me to meet my decade goal), but I am moving more than I was before! And at the very least, I AM feeling better and that counts for something.
I am worth this. I can do this. I am nurturing my body.
