I got up this morning and took my pill and drank a full glass of water before it dawned on me that I hadn't weighed in! UGH... It's all about the ritual isn't it?
You have no idea how happy I was to see a .4 loss for the week. Slow and steady; even after a somewhat "off plan" weekend.
I feel like I can do this; I am doing this; and it's far from easy, but it's working - even if at a snail's pace.
Yesterday the teen and I went to the gym. We got our steps in and an upper body strength workout... Biceps, triceps, lats, chest and shoulders. The little one was a little annoyed that I made her take her earbuds out and concentrate on what we were doing, but I'm trying to impress that she should focus on one thing at a time; form matters and you can't just "go through the motions". I'm a little sore this morning - it has been a while since I've done any strength training, but I am ready to keep it going - putting together a weekly plan - nothing crazy - just 2-3 days/week.
And I have to add that I felt FINE working out even though I was fasting and I hadn't really thought about it until just now... I felt strong, on task and made it through 3 sets of each exercise.
Food this week is going OK. I ate on plan Monday, fasted yesterday and had my usual breakfast of eggs.. I have NOTHING scheduled so I will be able to prep foods, and be more thoughtful about what I put in my mouth into the weekend. I'm making a concerted effort to stay away from SWEET - even fruit will be limited to citrus only - lemons, limes and if I'm dying an orange or grapefruit. I have to get rid of the cravings and the only way its going to happen is by NOT giving in, and focusing on other things. Any suggestions are welcome.
