Day 30

My days have been better, because I wanted them to be. Working through the turmoil. Can’t sleep tonight. REALLY NEED sleep..  but here I am awake.  Hoping to nap early, then own the day. Have a workout to do, dinner to prepare, and with all this snow, I need to get out with my camera, …

Day 27

I’m so broken.  My spirit. Emotionally.. just.. broken. I don’t want to get lost in this.. I need to find a way to keep moving forward.  Ugh. 

Day 23

I’ve had the flu already this year. I’ve also had Strep and a nasty sinus infection that landed me on 10 days of Amoxicillin.  And now, the left side of my throat is hurting and my ear is hurting.  I hate winter. :/ I eat relatively healthy. I eat nutrient dense foods. I drink a …

Day 20

Almost through January and I’m still going strong. Woot! I did have some junky food the other day, but other than that I’m doing good, eating healthy and exercising.  It’s been cloudy and rainy and since the temps are in the 40s, 50s, and some times even the 60s, it’s MUDDY.  Ugh. I am totally …

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 3

So far I’ve had no trouble getting in enough water. With this cold I’m battling, it’s been easy. It’s only 6 a.m. and I’ve already had 2 glasses. Now I’m having some tea with honey and lemon. My food intake hasn’t been adequate, but only because I cannot eat when I cannot taste my food. …
