Sunday Ah!

Sunday, September 15, 2013

So it's Sunday, which means that I should already have my lessons plans uploaded and everything graded, but I decided to enjoy myself this weekend and slacked off a bit with responsibility. I am okay with this choice right now, but tomorrow might be another story!

And I'll write a quick entry even though I have a number of other things I should be doing. I have been eating according to plan since last Thursday (the last entry) thankfully! I guess I am a little motivated by the desire to meet my first goal.

I have been eating more keto cups than I planned, however. I made a double batch and ate it in three days. Oops! They are sooo yummy though, and the carbs aren't that bad.

I went to the beach yesterday, hooped some, walked some, relaxed lots. I ate two delicious salads. Then today, I biked 8 miles on a great trail nearby with my boyfriend. I love that he's so active. He golfed yesterday, biked today, and had a softball game later in the day. He keeps me motivated!

Anyway, we rewarded ourselves after our bike ride with a huge two pound salad, which we split. I still haven't quite figured out how to eat proportionately, but this is a work in progress.

I know that I haven't eaten to the point of throwing up since I last wrote, which is an achievement.

I decided that I want to do a juice fast before the end of the year. I believe in the health benefits of fasting and I also think it is really great in terms of self discipline. I want to break away from my food addictions. I haven't even made it through one day of not eating in years though, so I think I'm going to have to work my way up to a goal of seven days. Mikey has a juicer I can use.

And that's about it! My kombucha is still brewing. I'll probably have it ready as a reward for weigh in on Thursday! This week, I want to go to the gym at least twice. I will shoot for tomorrow and Wednesday. :)

    Since you are considering fasting anyway, have you heard of The Fast Diet? I talked about it in my last blog. I do believe it to be a healthier way to fast. 2 non-consecutive days per week you have a 'fast day' of 500 calories. Preliminary research shows this to be as good as fasting for health benefits without putting you into starvation mode. The other 5 days you eat more like a maintainer, around 2000 calories without having to be so restrictive, just mindful that you are getting proper nutrition. There is a SP team for it. Tomorrow will be my second fasting day and I'm actually looking forward to it b/c of how great I felt during and afterwards.

    It's AWESOME that your boyfriend is so active. My family doesn't particularly enjoy being active and that can be just another excuse for me to sit with them.
