Down 2 Pounds!

Saturday, October 10, 2015

So I'm down two pounds, which is fantastic. I have kept to my calorie levels and exercise goals for the week, so I'm really happy that it's paid off. I was hoping to lose about half a pound this week, but I'll take it! I now only have 10 lbs. to lose by Christmas. I don't think that will be hard because we start the Nativity Fast in about a month. I am Orthodox Christian, and we fast about 200 days out of the year. On these days we are vegan, with also no olive oil or wine/alcohol. On fasting days I find it really hard to eat enough calories and to get enough protein. I'm looking to up my consumption of whole grains and beans, but I know this won't be enough. But fasting is about bring us closer to God, and not about dieting, so I just have to work on it. Anyways, I'm super happy today.
