17 April 2014

It's been a bit tougher today for some reason. The cravings have been hitting me hard but I have resisted. My motivation is still very high and I am excited about achieving my goals. Small steps...I keep telling myself, small steps. Each accomplish brings me closer to my goal. I know I can do this! Easter will be very trying for me...not only in the soda area since I will be around my family (all soda drinkers) but I need to be careful with my calorie intake since we will be having delicious BBQed turkey and yeah. It will put my willpower to the test and I hope I am strong enough to fight temptation!

Day 4 Summary
*Oil Pulling: I totally woke up late so I wasn't able to do this today. :(
It happens though. I stayed up a little too late last night lol!

*MIF-Cardio/Strength/Yoga (another source): Honestly, I am hoping to really kick this off next week. Again, I am not going to kick myself if I don't do this everyday but I will try my damnedest to accomplish this. If I can kick the soda habit...then I can achieve this as my next goal...especially if I want that 6 pack!

Woke up feeling rather positive today. Yeah, I am not perfect when it comes to working out daily, or hitting my goals...but you know, I am doing something. I am making those small changes that add up at the end of the day. And these small steps bring me closer and closer to fully changing my whole lifestyle. It's what I needed...small steps...those small victories to show me that I CAN do this. Today, I had several moments where I wanted to break down and buy a soda but I resisted. It's really just the sugar. Yeah...I am still eating things that have the processed sugars but again...I don't like the idea of wasting food and such so we are slowly purging the kitchen pantry and fridge. And regardless of this, I am still super proud of myself. I feel much like my old optimistic self which honestly feels so wonderful! I haven't felt like this for over a year.

Day 3 Summary
*Oil Pulling: Its getting easier and easier. I am enjoying how my teeth feel after oil pulling. I am also loving that they are naturally whitening. Someday I would love to get my teeth straightened!

Today is so far fairly good despite a few real life drama that is going on. I got plenty of sleep which has eluded me for so long (thank you insomnia) and I am feeling pretty damned good. I have a few errands to run and after that, I am planning on coming home, working out and possibly going on a jog with my oldest daughter IF she finishes her homework on time. My outlook is positive and I don't feel as crappy since I haven't had my A&W Cream Soda. This is like, day 3 where I have been drinking nothing but water. So now I just need to continue working on getting rid of the crap food and managing my time better and it should be smooth sailing from there. I am very optimistic about things to come. :)

Day 2 Summary
*Oil Pulling: Once again, I notice that my teeth just look better and my gums are getting healthier. The part that had receded is slowly repairing itself and it is still slightly red but it isn't puffy and 'angry' looking. I am still experiencing some sensitivities on the right side of my mouth but they don't seem as severe as before. I am so glad I decided to try this.

*MIF-Cardio/Strength/Yoga (another source): So I am trying to wake up in enough time so I can get in an AM Yoga session and a PM Yoga session. It is very difficult to do at the moment and I am not sure why lol. Hopefully, it will get easier to wake up earlier and earlier so I can get everything I need to get done...well done.
-MIF-Cardio/Strength: So today was a day to do the whole DVD and man...I am still panting and puffing and red cheeked. I sweated my ass off but you know...I am glad I did it. My oldest daughter did it with me and I am glad that it is instilling in her that exercising is very important to keep your body healthy.
-PM Yoga:

*Abs Challenge: I kind of forgot to do this.

*Steps Taken (Goal-5000): I walked less than 2000 steps...not happy about it but remaining positive.

*# Cups of Water (Goal-8 cups): 9

So today has been trying but I am proud. Still have not caved into the craving for an A&W Cream Soda. Its super hard and I want one soooo bad but I have resisted. One a really positive note, I have been hitting my 8 cups of water mark! That is a HUGE accomplishment for me. Slowly, I am purging my pantry and fridge of all the bad stuff but I don't want to waste it so I am just eating it and once it is more! Like those damned Ramen noodles...once they are gone...that is it! On a side note, I have learned that Raleys (which is very close to where I live) carries Purple potatoes!! I am sooo excited but I am not sure if they are organic or what have you...need to check more into it.

Now with my little summaries, I am starting over at day 1. I am not going to reset my diet/weight loss/food diary trackers though. I have this really weird OCD about having everything in a row if that makes sense. Now...I don't mind off days and such but for some odd reason, this close to I can't allow it. I dunno...I've got weird quirks. I just don't want to be a blog for my sister's wedding in September.

Day 1 Summary
*Oil Pulling: This still causes me to gag but only once and I get over it. It's not so bad...though I still had the taste. I have noticed that some of my teeth are appearing to whiten up while others still have a way to go. Not quite sure how it works but I am not going to complain.

*MIF-Cardio/Strength/Yoga (another source): So I had every intention of working out but the minute I put my hair into a ponytail and put on my heart rate monitor watch, my 8 month old woke up screaming and crying. It is getting too late to start up now so I will just have to make it up over the weekend on my rest day.
-MIF-Cardio/Strength: N/A
-AM Yoga: N/A

*Abs Challenge: I am definitely feeling this now even though I started it over. Its a good hurt though and I am getting better at sit ups. I still need to put a pillow under my lower back/hips but I am pushing through.

*Steps Taken (Goal-5000): 6289

*# Cups of Water (Goal-8 cups): 9 (This is just such a big accomplishment! I am so proud of myself!!)
