Let’s just get right down to it, and start off with the bad portion of this post…
Last week was bad news. I did not eat well, which was completely stupid considering I had done so well on my fast. It made me lazy, and it made me not care. GIGANTIC NO-NO. I really wish I would have stayed strong and carried on my good habits, because I know I would have probably lost at least another pound or two. But, I accept what I did (or didn’t do, in this case), and I am ready to move back into a positive direction.
I swear…one day I won’t have to come back here and confess to you guys that I’ve messed up. Apparently today is just not that day.
Alrighty, now for the good! The only positive that came out of my ridiculous eating last week is that I was so much more aware of my body. I truly didn’t eat until I was stuffed; I ate until I was content. I drank way more water than I normally do, and I stayed away from things that I KNEW would not make me feel good, i.e. tons of bread. So, I didn’t COMPLETELY throw out my entire week of juicing – I took a lot of what I had learned into consideration.
My motivation returned full force after the weekend, and here I am to say that I’m back to doing well. I didn’t count my points today, but I know that I a pretty close to my daily points, and I feel much better after drinking a bunch of water. It’s also hot (for us Washingtonians at least…) so instead of going on the elliptical I have decided to do some strength training and give my muscles a good workout. Despite it being about 85 degrees outside and probably 80 degrees in the house, I might still do a little on the elliptical. I’d love to REALLY earn my shower tonight. I’m just not sure my stomach would jive well with the heat. Ten minutes is better than nothing!
Ultimately, I feel great. Mom and I will be waking up early again tomorrow for our walk, and I plan on going back to religiously counting my points. I really am scared to weigh myself, but I probably will in the next day or two. It’s better to know what I’m at rather than staying in the dark.
Well, I’m off to get my tennis shoes and spend a little time on the elliptical (I made up my mind while writing…). I hope everyone is doing well! See ya soon 🙂
***P.S. – I just got off the elliptical. After already doing 60+ arm curls with 10lb weights, I did 32 MINUTES on the elliptical. Over 200 calories burnt, nearly 2,000 strides taken. Holy hell…I DEFINITELY deserve my shower, especially with it being 80 degrees in the house. Peace out, ladies and gents. I’ll post in the next few days.
