Aside from the fact that I feel like I ate way too much food yesterday, I'm very pleased with how I fared. I stuck 90% to my plan for the day. Today I'm taking it easy. Two pounds down on the scale too....but I'm not counting on that continuing, if it does, Bonus!
tea and water
Lunch: (noon, so 15-16 hours of fasting)
2 cups greens
1/2 large cuke
1/4 cup chicken
1/4 cup pork cracklings
1 tsp each balsamic and olive oil
1/4 cup blueberries
Scotch egg if I'm hungry
leftover pork shoulder mush (I thought this was gross) simmered down in a pan for a while. Side of cauliflower with butter
Snack: 3 strawberries
couple of russell stovers sugar free chocolates. :-(
It's snowing here this morning. Light snow all week. JUST enough to make the roads snotty, and make those flatlanders put on their tires of invincibility.....which in turn allows the locals to anticipate around every corner, seeing said flatlanders on their roofs in the median
i am very happy this morning, optimistic, and motivated.
**update: Sad face. Just returned from Chiropractor for some nagging back pains and an irritated nerve in my neck. She said my entire upper body, neck, ribs, shoulders, back is tight tight tight. she worked on me for a half hour. she told me to do absolutely no exercise except for walking while swinging arms...and of course, lots of gentle stretching, ice, heat, herbal muscle relaxers, and more visits with her. I really need to figure out the BEST posture for standing up at my desk. SLouching will defeat the purpose.
*sigh* One more hour left of IF. I'm QUITE hungry.
Pretty tough day today. Soreness abounds. I came home and hopped on (read; gingerly climbed on) the treadmill and did 1.7 miles, half an hour.....till my back really started to tighten.....thought it best to not push too much...i did plenty of dance walking...some of those tunes, I just can't help myself...*L* I must be quite a sight.
Ive soaked in a hot tub, and now I'm snuggled up in hubbies bathrobe (he's not in it) and getting ready to watch my shows, early bedtime with a valerian/advil cocktail.
Falling apart at the seams....
day 2 with chiropractor. still sore, still super tight, still moving around most of the day...not sitting a whole lot. She is looking into testing my adrenal function.
Didn't eat much today, wasn't that hungry. I binged tonite. I don't even want to talk about what I ate. Since my adjustment with Jill this afternoon I have felt on the edge of tears....sometimes moving that stuff around in the body triggers and emotional release too I guess. IDK. Maybe I just need a good cry. Sometimes I think I need to get all of that crap out of the house. If that's the case, then I also need to not ever go into a store. I feel like a pretty big weakling, and I don't know what to do other than to pick myself up by the bootstraps and start fresh again right now. I just don't want to keep starting over.
My husband says I should be very proud of how far I have come, and the determination that I have to keep going, so I'm going to try to focus on that.
