Day 12

Shakeology every day. Eating relatively well. I need to up my veggie intake though. No soda, except maybe twice. Lots and lots of water. I’ve cut dairy WAAAY back. I still have a slice of cheese here and there, and I’ve been having a cup of kefir daily, but that’s a drastic reduction for me.  …

Day 10

I did a Slim in 6 workout today. I did it last week too. I cried. In frustration. I’m too fat to do some of it. That’s maddening. But instead of letting it lead me to defeat, I’m using that feeling to push me onward. I don’t want to be fat any more. Plain and …

Day 9

I joined a challenge group with my Beach Body coach today. This means that I have to exercise.  Have to. No excuses.  đŸ˜¬  I weighed myself and took measurements. I’ve been eating well despite being so sick as of late. I’m down 7 lbs in a week. I don’t get too excited about that, as …

Day 8

Still fighting this infection. My face HURTS. This is ridiculous. đŸ˜–.  I’ve been eating extremely well, regardless of how I feel. Fresh fruits and veggies, lean proteins, and lots of water. I just cannot exercise with any regularity yet. The sinus pressure I have is unreal. I’m quite uncomfortable at the moment. Whining aside, I’ve …

Day 5

Whatever I’m fighting really knocked me on my butt the last 2 days! Wow. I’m much better now, but still have a slight sore throat and I’m still all stuffed up. I’m not going to complain though. My sleep pattern is all screwy though because I basically slept the past 2 days off and on …

Day 14

One thing the 21 Day Fix is forcing me to do, is to eat more veggies. I’m not one of those folks that can just sit and eat a raw pepper and raw broccoli. Yuck. Most of my veggies have to be grilled, baked, or whatever… Last night for dinner, my mom seasoned some broccoli …

Day 13

I did 2 miles on the bike, quickly, as I was pressed for time. I spent some time with the momma outside, and some time with the kidlet discussing the floods that happened here in WV recently. I cleaned the kitchen, and after my ride took a shower and headed out to meet up with …

Day 11

Wow. I just was NOT hungry today. At all. I had a hard boiled egg and a strip of bacon. I had 2 cups of fruit blended with ice and water for a smoothie, and I made a big Cobb Salad for dinner.  My legs are SO SORE from yesterday. It’s been a real wake …

Day 10

So, I had to take the hubby to a follow up dental appointment. After I ate a yummy breakfast… We drove 1.5 hours for an appointment that lasted about 5 minutes.  So… We were about 47 miles from where I lived when I was 11/12. I went by there back in 1995, and it was …
