Sorry I have not been as active here. Today is the day of my sister's wedding so thank the gods it will be over with! I am pretty much done and not having as much fun thanks to the treatment I get and the shit that has been talked about my family. It's truly a stressful situation and my sister is being a total bridezilla...but just because me, my other sisters and mom are poor...we are viewed as crap. Doesn't help that she is marrying money so now, we get judged even harder. Funny thing is...even though her soon to be husband has money, he is actually super laid back and treats us very well. I dunno...I am glad this is almost over.

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: Still going strong with this and glad. I need to readjust how much I put in my mouth though. Since my coconut oil is more solid now...I end up putting too much lol!

*P90X3: So it is a rest day! Actually...yesterday was supposed to be my rest day but I switched them since I know there is no way I will be able to squeeze in a workout today. :)

I had to step away from everything and re-evaluate everything. I needed to look at my goals and think about what exactly I am shooting for. Yes...losing weight is one but I have found that it goes beyond that now. Now...I want to drop the weight and then get into heavy lifting. Depending on how everything goes financially...I want to get the whole bench and weights and a proper pull up bar and all that lovely stuff so I can achieve my goals. Yeah...I could easily join a gym but then that involves driving and just...ugh.

I am pretty positive about everything and while I know that I had two things that weren't necessarily as healthy...I am proud that I only had half. Normally, I would just eat the whole thing but I actually used restraint. I also made sure to pack myself a lunch when I went to work and it was actually very delicious and filling. And as a snack, I had a protein shake. So...the revamp to my eating is slowly changing for the better and it helps that I FINALLY bought a food scale to make things easier instead of guessing.

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: My teeth and gums are still getting better and better each day. Maybe with the change in diet, it will only help this process quicker.

*P90X3: Total Synergistics was still pretty hard but I was able to get through it without as many issues. My wrist is finally starting to feel better so that is a plus. I have decided that once I finish the P90X3 Classic schedule, I am going to go through the Lean program followed by the Doubles. The fact that the workouts are 30 minutes helps a lot!

Yeah...so now I am 2.8 lbs over my pre-pregnancy weight lol! Told ya anything could happen. I know why this happened too. Yesterday I ended up having to get up early and do what was supposed to be a two hour drive but it was longer because we got lost and then stopped to eat...yeah we ate fast food. And when I got home...I was too tired to cook so we got something out. I know I know...this needs to stop but at least I still lost some.

Anyhow, today I will hopefully eat a lot better and stick to not only my menu that I am planning out but also just remaining positive. Yesterday, I ended up getting pretty damned grumpy because I was sitting a lot from driving and wasn't as active (I did get my workout in) as I should have been. Oh well...today is a new day. :)

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: Still going strong with this. Still don't like the taste of coconut but it isn't not bad at all anymore. I have become accustomed to the taste of the coconut oil.

*P90X3: Total Synergistics was pretty difficult but I loved it. I can now do the Boat-plough very well (this surprised me) and I have found that while balancing on my left side, I can do the Warrior Squat Moon very well...but still have trouble on my right. Kind of funny but odd in a way because I am right hand dominate but left foot dominate lol! I blame the years of marching band. I found that I really liked this workout today though. YAY for being in week 2!

So...out of curiosity's sake...I weighed myself today but I am not going to put it in here since anything can happen between now and Sunday...but...I was pleasantly surprised! I FINALLY reached my post pregnancy weight! I have finally lost all the extra weight gained from my second born....now on to losing the rest gained from my first. And just so people aren't confused...there is an 8 year age gap between my girls. As you can imagine, I am pretty damned happy about that!

So, I am going to start working on my meal plans tonight since they will probably start taking me a couple of days to complete. I am going pretty in-depth, trying to track macros and cost. I am also going to be reading everything in my Nourishing Traditions cookbook (yes I am still excited about it lol).

Overall, today is a good day. As much as I don't want to spent the money though, I need to go buy myself a pair of nice jeans. The one pair of blue jeans I own...the thighs blew out lol! What I mean is that because my thighs rub together (omg it's sooo irritating and I wish they didn't because chaft!) that it wore out the material there. I have been putting off buying any new clothes until I lose the weight but I have this casual dinner to attend the day before my sister's wedding and I realized that I will have nothing to wear lol. So yeah...breaking down and buying myself a nice pair of blue jeans.

Other than that, I hope everyone is having a GREAT DAY!!

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: My sister started oil pulling again which makes me happy. I don't care what anyone says, I personally see how it has helped my own teeth so I will recommend it to anyone lol!

Today has been considerably better than yesterday even though I am pretty sore. It's a good sore though. I wish I had a foam roller though to see if it will help ease the soreness. I know that I am little more sore because I started doing this Yoga for Weight Loss in the evenings and it's still taking some time getting used to it. Yeah...still not sure what happened yesterday and why I felt like I was in such a funk but it must have passed. I will not complain though since I enjoy being optimisitic. :)

Today will be a busy day and I am also planning on sitting down to start doing my meal planning. It's going to be pretty intensive since I will be looking at my macros AND trying to find stuff for a decent price. So yeah...it will definitely be interesting. I am not catering to any one else's diet other than my own because I am the one paying for everything. Well...sorry it's short but I am off to start my day.

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: Oil pulling was difficult because my allergies were acting up but I pushed through. So because of that, it wasn't as peaceful as it normally is.

*P90X3: CVX is brutal...cardio while lifting a weight is soo hard. I had to stop periodically because not only were my thighs on fire but my shoulders were as well. Again, little more sore than normal because I am now doing Yoga in the evenings so yeah. It was hard today. Next week when I have to do this workout again, I am going to push through. I have to try harder.
