I decided on Sunday to give up coffee and I have been feeling absolutely miserable these last three days. I mean, nausea, fatigue, major headaches, and I mean just about the worst withdrawal ever. I haven't been able to eat much or do much. Hopefully tomorrow I will feel better and will be able to restart my workouts...I'm starting to miss them.
It's been a long time coming, but I have finally figured out how to win this battle! Hard work & determination! I had to change my way of thinking and accept that it wasn't going to happen overnight...that it was going to be a long and slow process, but that if I kept doing the right things that it would happen... I have lost almost 30lbs and I still can't believe that it's happening. I still have another 25lbs to lose and I'm super excited to have finally decided to become a beachbody coach. I'm anxiously awaiting my shakeology and definitely pumped up to lose the last 25 pounds!
I am giving this another go. I'm not giving up because I know eventually I will get it right. Yesterday I was so depressed and spent all day eating to the point that I felt sick to my stomach. I just couldn't stop. It hasn't happened in such a long time and I think yesterday, everything that I have been dealing with, got to me and I lost control. So this morning I got up determined to make an honest effort at making this work. Eating healthy and moving more. I know this is the worst time to start but really if I can make it through the holidays then I can make it through anything. I will try to post during my lunch breaks (the only down time I have for myself) and hopefully I can get back to blogging and doing good again. I'm excited and from every failed attempt I'm learning something. I will get it right and I will get there.
Hi there, it's been a long time since I last logged into my blog so, let me give you a quick update you on my life. After moving from house to house we FINALLY bought our house! It needs a lot of work (and a lot of money) but I am thankful and grateful for what I have. I am also (after four years) an officially working mother. I found a job working with the county's special education program and I'm loving it and loving the hours even more. Gives me enough time to drop my son off at preschool and pick him up at an early time. Life is good!
Now, on to the dreaded subject........Yes, I gained some weight back..I'm 185 so while I haven't gained it all back, I still gained some. Living with other people made it extremely difficult to stay on track. I tried but it was way too frustrating and stressful for me. Now, I have been home for over a month and I have tried over and over again to get back to what I was doing before we moved that first time, but I'm having such a hard time and to top it off it's holiday season so I mean, who want's to eat healthy during the holiday season? Not me!
Day three and doing pretty good. I have been eating all raw and working out as well. I did weigh myself yesterday and I am exactly 180lbs. Not bad considering when I first started this weight loss journey I was 203 (if I'm not mistaken). I'd like to lose another 20lbs and hopefully going raw will help me do that.
Since I'm fairly new to this raw lifestyle I have been eating raw cereals, smoothies, cold soups, and juices. My husband's gift to me for Mother's day was a brand new Vitamix and I'm seriously loving it. Makes, blending smoothies and juices SO much easier.
