I've made it a full week on the eat to live plan.
I've been putting stars on my calandar :
Gold for "shining the sink" at night (flylady january challenge)
Green for eating healthy
Red for getting off my butt and doing at least something active during the day
I started all of this last friday after i got back in from USA.
I have a 21
And it's paid. I feel good when i get up in the morning and dont have a mess in the kitchen.
I feel good eating healthy and am really enjoying my soups - i LOVE soup!
I feel less uncomfortable in my body but not yet in my clothes :P
That's ok...i'll get there too.
I have lost 2 kg (4.4 pounds) over this week. That is a lot for one week, i know. But thing is i had gained about that much over the week i was in USA and about 2 more since last november. So i think these first 4 kg should fall off quickly (though not easily lol!)
I still feel very lethargic. I'm doing my yoga but i have no stamina or strength and it's really taking all my motivation to do it.
I went for a lovely walk, just me and the doggies, today. It was gorgeous out! But even at my own pace and with a short distance, i felt winded and my legs seemed difficult to move. This isnt like me! The lack of strength and stamina yes. But being whipped by a simple walk, no.
I dont know if it's the extra weight or the lack of animal protein. I'll know in a few more weeks when i cant blame it on being out of practice and when hopefully a few more pounds will be gone. If by then i still feel like this, i will take a different spin on my nutritarian eat-to-live plan. My step-mother who had originally told me about this book said that the first 10 days or so people often feel funky.
So my pic... I found a gazillion negative things to say and every time had to remind myself, NO! You're looking for the positive! Stop it!
I must say that those jeans and my bra are so flippin uncomfortable that i couldnt be positive if i tried! SO...I went and changed! Those jeans will stay in my closet for another few pounds lol.
I couldnt even breath . and they kept sliding down (not because too loose but because too tight if that makes sense lol) and my sweater kept riding up. I'm very very unhappy and self-conscious about my stretch-marked belly so that was making me in a bad mood. Well and it was driving me nuts and again, just all around uncomfortable.
After changing jeans i felt much better.
So the positive thing in this pic? I love my doggies! They are so sweet and cute! And they love me! Just as i am! Doggies rock!
And i like this color on me.
NOW! On a totally different note
