#21DayFix Day#2 #100LBWeightLossJourney

Day #2 was a rainy Saturday morning. I did not want to get up and get moving…but, the kids did! LoL, leave it to them to get me up and moving in the mornings. I don’t need an alarm clock, just my kids!

So, got my workout done. Dirty 30. Yes, it was tough. The last round of exercises were brutal, could barely do them. But, I finished and another day with the sweat pouring off me…LoL…Yeah I know gross image. But, that means I’m working it.

If you’re working out and you’re not sweating, then you’re not working it hard enough!

(unless of course you have a medical condition that prevents you from sweating)

Post Workout Selfie

I’ve read on lots of sites, blogs, twitter, etc. That some people have an issue with how much people post their selfies after working out. I would like to address that complaint. Get a life! (LOL) If you have nothing better to do then to complain about someone posting too many sweaty PWS pics then you are a pretty ridiculous and pathetic person. Maybe you should get busy with working out. 🙂 One of the main reasons people post these after workout shots, is accountability. If we get into a routine of making sure to post them everyday because we know they are being viewed, we’re going to do that workout. It helps to keep us focused and motivated.

On with the day!!

 

Breakfast

Breakfast

Breakfast was a yummy Shakeology shake (with 1 purple container -rasps and strawberries), grapes, and wholegrain tortilla with peanut butter.

I definitely notice a difference in my energy and focus after drinking my shake. I can honestly say that I have not had “fibro fog” the past two days! When I was done having breakfast I went and tackled the piled up laundry and tidying of the kids rooms.

Snack time quickly approached!

Tempted to sweeten my green tea, but, I didn’t. However, I did buy some Stevia and raw sugar to have on hand for moments of weakness. LOL

I faced a will power battle when the kids wanted snacks and were choosing less than healthy options (oreo mini cookies). Temptation is at me with every turn in this house but, I have held strong for two days now. It has NOT been easy. I feel like I did when i was trying to quit smoking, but, WORSE! I feel a panicked and immediate feeling of having to eat something (that I THINK I want to eat). I also feel angry about not being able to eat what I want, when I want. it totally sucks. But, in those moments I know it must be time for a snack or a bottle of water. My brain is telling me to seek old habits, but, I am NOT listening. I just keep reminding myself of where I want to go on this journey.

“I’m NOT taking a shortcut!” (Reference to this blog post: https://chaosandsilence.wordpress.com/2014/10/05/jointhechaos_parttwo/ )

Lunch Time!

Lunch Time!

I added some vinegar, splash of olive oil and spices to my green stuff (Kale and Spinach) today.

Then it was time to head off to the Kids Run with Valley Harvest Marathon. I was unable to run this year (next year I will be though!). But, I entered my kids into the kid run. We had to leave before supper and would be gone for a few hours so I had to pack supper/snacks that would work.

Here’s what I ended up with:

I learnt a valuable lesson. It IS possible to stay on track while on the road.

We stopped after the run to grab the kids MacDonalds happy meals…..normally I would get something too….normally I would eat the fries that dropped onto the bottom of the happy meal box…normally I would eat the kids fries if they did not eat them. Looks like I’ve kicked “normally” to the curb because I didn’t eat one fry!!!! I ate my apple at this point and drank my water.

#NSV (Non Scale Victory) – This one was a huge hurdle for me to get over, but, I did it. And I am SO proud of myself. Sorry, but, I am going to toot my own horn for a minute.

I got home and we got the kids to bed. And I had a last minute tortilla with peanut butter to make sure I wouldn’t wake up hungry.

Here’s to a successful day#2 ! WOOOOOOT!
