The last few days have been very busy.
Yesterday was three consecutive days of working out. Yesterday was by far the best, I was sweaty instead of just having a red face.
My nutrients has been great with respect to my rations. I stay at or below 50g of carbs a day. I'm a bit compulsive and I'm constantly on MFP to see how where I need to increase or decrease. Soon I will get to a point to where I'm not so compulsive about it. It will be second hand.
I still miss my licorice! I wonder if that will ever go away.
A total of 8lbs since 5/16, I have not weighed myself the last couple of days to get away from the scale. I don't want to get disappointed if I go up. I do know that my mid section is decreasing and that's the important thing. It's amazing to me how inflammatory carbs are to your organs. My face is thinner now, I just have a tiny bit under my chin, my jaw line is defined again. My daughter who I share custody with my ex came home and said, "wow mom, your face looks great, I can see your jaw line again".
I'm excited to see what comes next. I feel great, energy level has gone up and I find myself antsy if I am not doing something. I don't like to just "sit" any longer for a period of time. I have an ebay store and I don't like listing items anymore because I don't want to at sit at the computer any longer.
My favorite staple in the morning is 1 cup of coffee, 1 Tbsp of Coconut oil and 2 Tbsp of Heavy Whipping Cream (blended w/my Magic Bullet). It's also very filling. That gives me 500+ calories and 56g of fat. It's wonderful, almost like a non sweetened latte. My next cup, I'm going to add a Tsp of unsweetened cocoa. I was having a hard time getting my fat into my diet, not anymore.
