Day 16: Tuesday
WoW, I can hardly believe it's day 16 already. I feel like I just started.
I've been slacking in the exercise department lately;
I've been playing outside, but not really "working-out" with the cardio.
So stepping that up from now on. I haven't really progressed to
much in the weight loss department this past week either. Mostly because of my PMS and also because I haven't worked out either (and not to mention a few cheats...those dang carb cravings I get this time of month, ugh..). My period is over now, and my cravings more manageable too. My weight "always" goes up during that time too. Now it's back to where it was before my PMS hit. So I feel more determined again, and hopefully can drop a few pounds this week. Plus I just got myself a Precor Elliptical work-out machine; I bought it used, but it works great!
Emotionally I feel super though. Much more stable and not depressed at all.
I am also trying to get deeper spiritually. I have only started down this path for the last year. Before that I was very agnostic, and didn't concern myself with such things; but things happened in my life leading me to God. Too complicated to explain in this journal. Anyways, I am taking a class on Tuesday nights at my church, to help deepen my faith. Something I have been neglecting lately when I was really depressed before.
what I ate today:
fresh grapefruit juice w/ 2 tbsp. of E3 Live
water & supplements
lunch: romaine hearts topped with raw hummus (even better today!!!)
snack: 1 medium apple
dinner was: 2 pears & 2 bananas
excercise: 50 min. on Precor-Elliptical while groovin' to Maroon 5.
