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.

Not sure why but today I woke up with so much stuff on my mind...like...it was hard to focus...it was hard to get up and do anything. I felt off. It was like there were so many thoughts in my mind that I couldn't settle on one thing or focus for too long on it. I tried to meditate to see if this would help...ended up drifting off to sleep. So maybe I just needed sleep lol. So after work, I finally decided to buy a cookbook that I have been wanting for almost a year since I had a giftcard to Barnes & Nobles...Nourishing Traditions by Sally Fallon. I am so excited!!

So, I am a very avid book reader...but to be this excited over a cookbook? Lol! I am really trying my best to make good food...and eat real food. It's really hard since my income goes so quickly and no one else is helping to pay for things...but I still try my best. I have decided that my meal planning is going to become a lot more...indepth. I need to cut down on my carb intake while cutting back my expenses on food. It will be a long and tiring task...but it is the best thing I can think of to do.

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: Oil pulling wasn't so serene as it normally is. It was long...and boring but I think that is because of how I woke up. Not too sure.

*P90X3: The Challenge...what can I say? Push ups and Pull ups are sooooo hard! My shoulders are killing me...but I am glad I pushed through. My goals aren't too high...but still effective. I aim to do one more then I did before. That's not too unreasonable...right?

I woke up today feeling very energized and motivated. I think last night helped out a lot for me internally. I had gone outside and meditated in a pool of the SuperMoon's light. I think it was what I needed...a way to cleanse myself and rejuvenate. I like to think it worked since well...that is exactly how I am feeling today. I still need to practice my meditation more so I can get better at it. As of right now, I find that I can fall easier into that meditative state if I am in the Corpse Pose as opposed to sitting up. I keep trying to do it sitting up though. I figure that if I continue to try, it will get easier and easier (maybe if I bought one of those zufus it would help).

Anyhow, now that I am in the right mindset and feeling oh-so-light, I think I can tackle all the things I need to do with a light heart and determination. :)

Daily Summary
*Oil Pulling: I need to adjust how much oil I put in my mouth. My oil is becoming more and more solid so I need to remember that I don't need as much as opposed to when it is liquid so that was a bit of a problem today. I took a little too much...
