I took a rest from my 30 Day Shred today.
I am under more stress than usual right now; just life in general. Things with my husband's job, my kiddos, trying to crack down on the house training with the dog etc... It's just life, ya know?
I did do well with eating. Eating for my blood type has been pretty easy, although I do miss dairy. Both yesterday and today I've had a latte, which is made with milk. Eating for my type O blood doesn't allow dairy or grains... so no more wheat thins and laughing cow cheese.
Today I had egg whites with some hamburger mixed in. It sounds really weird, but it was leftover hamburger from dinner the other night and it was good. I also had half a grapefruit. Definitely don't have a refined taste for those yet! LOL
For lunch I had 1.5 chicken breasts with fresh spinach, broccoli, carrots, peppers, cilantro and dressing. For dinner I've had a banana and apple with peanut butter. I don't feel hungry right now.
I've stopped counting calories. I don't think it's necessary with this new way of eating. I'm hoping the scale is down tomorrow, but I'm not eating this way for weight loss primarily. I hope the weight comes off, like it's coming off for Sunshine Mama, but mostly I hope to feel better. Have less aggression, irritation and headaches.
The other HUGE thing I need to do... DRINK MORE WATER. I have really been slacking in this department, so I am going to really, really concentrate to get at least 85 ounces of water a day. It's hard for me to drink water, so this is going to become one of my Perfect 10 Challenge goals. Drink 85oz water a day.
I'll be back at it tomorrow with good ol' Jillian. =)
Hope everyone had a great weekend!
