Week 2

I didn't lose anything this week but I have lost 4.5 inches off my body in the last two weeks. So I am pretty happy with that. I can feel the difference in my clothing, things are starting to fit better. My stomach is getting flatter slowly. and my face  is thinning out There were a lot of people on the challenge that were bummed this week about losing little or no lbs until I told them to go measure themselves a lot were surprised to find that they had lost inches. Saturday was a hard day for me I didn't get my meals in properly and had horrible cravings for stuff. I am glad that I didn't act on them. I am starting to realize that I have to keep myself on a schedual on the weekend. If I don't want to get off course and cause self sabotage. I am getting really bored I feel like climbing the walls I just want to get a good cardio workout in so bad. I did manage to do my grocery shopping on my own though today so that was good I was able to lift bags and totes and bring them in and down the long hallway to my apartment that felt good. I re-injured my toes on Friday afternoon after I accidentally kicked a floor fan, so now my recovery has been set back a little. 

Thats about all for this week see you next week!

As promised results of week one!

I despite not being able to really work out because of my toes was able to lose 2 lbs this week and 1.5 inches off my waist.. This week was surprisingly easy. I  kept up with my water I planned 2 weeks of meals and snacks that I have kept on track with ,except for a few minor alterations. I even battled through temptations. Katie went to a dance on Friday and had brought everyone home a treat, she brought me a chocolate bar, which I only ate 1/2 of and put the rest in the freezer where it has stayed.. I haven't been counting my calories, and I am probably really under my daily amount every day but do not feel deprived of anything, I eat  three meals a day and two to three snacks, most of my meals are low carb or carb free, but I do make sure that I eat a lot of salad with a bit of dressing, lots of raw veggies and  I eat fruit and lots of protein. I eat one protein with every meal. I have been drinking 2-3 litres of water everyday and if I am sick of water then I make myself a cup of fruit tea I bought a sampler pack of celestial seasonings, they have 5 different fruit teas to chose from and they are all wonderful. I have also stopped using white sugar, I am only using honey to sweeten anything. I am trying new recipes and making alterations to things that I normally make.

 Even Maxine who has been eating the way I have been has lost a little bit too I have not weighed her but I see it in her face and her belly is flatter.I am controlling her portions better, and she has been leaving food at the end of a meal.

See you next week for the results of week 2!

A new year has begun. I have started off the year ok but not great. I started eating betting this week as well as working out. I got in two really high intensity workouts followed by strength training workout. I was doing really good until I forgot to put my dumb bells away and heard the phone ringing and ran to answer it.........I didn't see the dumb bells and I smashed my right foot into my 5 lb dumb bell.....I have two broken toes. Did I cry? nope Did I swear? Nope. Really wanted too, but instead I answered the phone. Held my composure and got off the phone and screamed.I have had broken bones many times but this one really hurt doing. To make matters worse I did it about 20 min before I had to leave the house and pick up my kids for lunch, and my husband was working out of town that day. I had no choice but to shove my foot into my shoe and walk out the door. When my husband got home I got babied big time. Dinner in bed, tea, even the kids are helping me out. It has been great having everyone pitch in just wish that they would all do it when I am not hurt!

Enough about my injuries.......
