So, as I begin week 2, I will recap last week:
1 water aerobics class
2 yoga (chair) classes
I didn't really focus on diet last week, intentionally. That whole ease yourself in thing, I guess. And I am going to start the autoimmune protocol on Thursday, so I have been cleaning out the fridge/freezer/pantry, reading/researching, and getting in the right mindset. Friday night I had potato chips, a brownie and ice cream - and woke up Saturday knowing that I was done with the carb-y splurges...I don't think I had realized that I had already cut so many of them and it wasn't a pleasant feeling at all - but I immediately realized what it was. I've done just about every low carb variation at some point in the last 15 years, and am glad my body remembers. I know I have more to lose this time, and I am older, and my body doesn't have the flexibility/stamina I used to have, but I'm on the right path.
2 pounds down, for a total of 12.6 since I installed the app a couple of months ago and promptly ignored it. 🤣. Steps... slowly but surely, right?
My husband joined me for both yoga classes (his first ones) and he really enjoyed them. He's taking a tai chi class tonight and I will swim while he does. He's promised to support me and says he's willing to follow whatever dietary model I am, but I really don't expect that from him. I certainly appreciate the sentiment though.
My favorite Spark friend from years past is still active. 💙
Here's to Week 2
