It's Friday! YAY!! This week has felt soooooo long. My husband had to work on Monday and my kids didn't get the memo it was a holiday. ;-) But it's finally here!
Weigh In... well, the scale says I gained half a pound. :-P I have done nothing to deserve this abuse from my body/the scale! LOL I have exercised every single day, drunk my green smoothies, and not eaten outside of my calories. I even let Jillian kick my booty! What more can I do!?
I'm not disheartened, though. There are a couple things that are affecting it, I think. First of all, I need to go back to see my doctor in Arizona. I can tell my hormone therapy needs to be updated; the drops I take that normally help aren't really helping at all. So, hormones could be a big part of it. Also, I'm still working on getting my intestines to function properly and release the waste, so that's an issue.
Finally, Greta mentioned in her comment yesterday that it's important to eat good fats so your body can let go of the bad fats. I definitely need to work on that. And my nutrition in general.
So, although the scale smugly told me I didn't lose a thing this week, I will not give up. Besides, I am going to weigh in again on Monday and hopefully I'll see a change then. And by that, I mean see the scale go DOWN! LOL
I've been thinking about Sunshine Mama's new diet, and I am going to buy the following ingredients at the store:
purple cabbage, shredded carrots, cilantro, green, yellow and red bell peppers. You mix this all up into a salad and use whatever salad dressing you like. The nice thing about this salad is that it's really refreshing and IT DOESN'T GET SLIMY AND WILT. It's all hard vegetables. So I'm going to make up a big batch of that and eat it with my cooked chicken breasts.
I am VERY sore today. My whole body aches. My plan is to do my Shred video this afternoon when the kids are napping, and so I'll have eaten something prior. I hope I can do it; my muscles ache so badly but I'll do my best to push through because I am determined to complete the 30 days!
So, updates to my Perfect 10 Challenge:
*No weight loss this week (yet) but I have a plan in place to help get that fat sliding off. It really should still be coming off with the amount I need to lose.
*Change weigh in days to Monday
*Eat more vegetables and lean protein
And a fact about me:
I've never broken a bone. Not a toe, not a nose, not a rib, nuttin'. And, barring childbirth (which is a different story entirely) I've only ever had stitches once. This is a miracle because, well, I'm a very clumsy person! Recall I got my head stuck in the subway doors in France. Yeah, graceful is not a word I'd use to describe myself. Growing up I was always falling out of trees, off horses, off bikes, etc... But never broke a bone. That's got to be some sort of accomplishment, right!? :-D
Happy Friday Everyone!
