Day 59

While I have largely pissed away the last 58 days, I’m still trying.

I ate well today. I started my day with a Shakeology with spinach and almond milk. I had a late breakfast/early lunch of an omelet with peppers and onions, and ham and rye. I should have foregone the rye. Dammit, I love bread. :/

I got in 8 oz of a kombucha drink I bought to try. I’ve had a swimming pool’s worth of water lol. I really needed to get in some fruit, but after a dinner of a large salad with hard boiled eggs and a cup of beef bone broth, I’m stuffed!

I’m happy with my choices today. 😁

Day 58

I rocked today. Just sayin’…  😬

Hoping I can do the same tomorrow. 👍🏻

I’m TRYING to go gluten free. I found gluten free croutons. Yay!

My salad for lunch was delish.

My dinner was even better!

It’s chicken, bacon, sweet potatoes, apples, onion, and Brussels all cooked in a skillet, seasoned with garlic, thyme, salt, pepper, and cinnamon. Amazing!!

I also got in 96 oz water. 😳


Day 41

A yummy lunch!!

A big salad, with gluten free croutons. And a small glass of kefir. 
Sitting here enjoying the meal with my mom. 

It’s so cold out today. We have lots of snow. I had wanted to go take pics, but I can’t seem to warm up! Ugh. 

While our winter has been ridiculously mild, I’m anxious for a warm up. I want to get my raised garden beds built!  

I think after lunch, I’m going to read for awhile under a heavy comforter in hopes that I can once again feel my fingers and toes! 

Have a great day! 

Day 12

Shakeology every day. Eating relatively well. I need to up my veggie intake though. No soda, except maybe twice. Lots and lots of water. I’ve cut dairy WAAAY back. I still have a slice of cheese here and there, and I’ve been having a cup of kefir daily, but that’s a drastic reduction for me. 

I’ve noticed two major changes. One is my belly bloat, it is gone. The other, is that whatever has been wrong with my face all these years, appears to be clearing up. (Think rosacea, only that’s not what it is…)

I’m very pleased with both changes. 

Off to run errands and get a few groceries, then home to do laundry and get my work out in. 

Have a fantastic day y’all!! 

Day 10

I did a Slim in 6 workout today. I did it last week too.

I cried. In frustration. I’m too fat to do some of it. That’s maddening. But instead of letting it lead me to defeat, I’m using that feeling to push me onward.

I don’t want to be fat any more.

Plain and simple. 

I got through it, even though I had to stop once or twice, and when I couldn’t do a particular part, I just kept moving. 

I felt like puking when I was done. I drank a water and then made a Shakeology with banana and got over it.

I know this isn’t going to be easy. And I know I’m only going to get out what I put in. I’m going to work out 3 days a week for now.. 

My knee is so shot. I cannot do lunges. It gives out on me completely. I fell down twice as a result. I’m just going to do what I can. 

Also, side planks can suck it. 


Day 9

I joined a challenge group with my Beach Body coach today. This means that I have to exercise.  Have to. No excuses.  😬 

I weighed myself and took measurements. I’ve been eating well despite being so sick as of late. I’m down 7 lbs in a week. I don’t get too excited about that, as it was all bloat, but I’ll take it either way!

I’m still feeling pretty pokey, but I’m a lot better today. Gonna exercise a little later. I slept in today, so I had a late breakfast and I’m full. I love cooking a yummy, healthy breakfast though. Best meal of the day! 

I have so much to do, but I don’t want to over do it. I’m still feeling very low on energy. Ugh. Guess I better get to it! 

Day 8

Still fighting this infection. My face HURTS. This is ridiculous. 😖. 

I’ve been eating extremely well, regardless of how I feel. Fresh fruits and veggies, lean proteins, and lots of water. I just cannot exercise with any regularity yet. The sinus pressure I have is unreal. I’m quite uncomfortable at the moment.

Whining aside, I’ve had to lie low and rest and that gives me lots of time to think. 

Year after year, I say that I’m going to do this, and I’m going to do that. I’m going to quit drinking (I like me rum!) I am going to drink more water and not drink soda! I’m going to lose this weight!

And every year, I never even make it to February.

I also have a long list of stuff I want to do. Nothing crazy. Little things like clean out my office, finish a few crafty things I started and didn’t finish, print out some of my photographs to hang in our home, create a calendar of my photos to give as gifts to the people who enjoy my photography… it goes on and on. 

I feel like I’m running out of time. I sit and think of all these little things I want to do, that don’t mean a thing to anyone but me, and I get overwhelmed. No more of that. What will be, will be.

I’ll let you know how I do 😬
