So it’s Day 3 of my 30 for 30 Challenge and I have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying myself. I feel great and I, honestly, wondered why I felt that I needed to come home every day and drink my daily glass (sometimes glasses) of wine. I was using my wine to cope with boredom and stress from the job. Now I am exchanging my glass of wine for fun activities. I realized that I was dreading going home because after work, I wanted to do something fun and home wasn’t really fun. I was at work all day and sometimes it was boring then I would go home and do the usual mommy/wifey stuff…which, let’s face it, isn’t always the most exciting part of my life. I mean, things like checking homework, making dinner, a little cuddling (for quality time) have to be done but it doesn’t mean these things are high on the Excitement List.
Now that I have fun, healthy activities to look forward to, I don’t miss the wine at all. It’s weird but I don’t. I am proud of myself for being healthier and I have fun things to look forward to do after work so life is pretty good.
I ate pretty well yesterday. I probably should not have had 2 PB&J’s right after my 9 o’clock workout but aside from that, things are going well. I did 30 minutes of walking because that’s about all I had time (and the energry) for after Jae and Avi’s swim lessons, watched a couple of shows then headed to bed so I could try to get 8 hours of sleep. I didn’t get 8 full hours but I was close. Probably more around 6-7 hours.
I weigh about 188 lbs.right now. I am fluctuating near the 190 mark but I was doing that before my 30 day weight loss challenge. I am ready to see a significance weight loss of about 10 lbs. or more. Plus Aunt Flow is itching to come visit any minute which might have something to do with bloating/water weight gain. 😦
Today, I ate my usual breakfast of 2 hardboiled eggs and a yogurt. I skipped lunch because I am not feeling hungry even though I feel I will have to eat something before I head home. I had a vitamin water and a bottle of water. I think because I have been running around in meetings and the bathroom, I haven’t had time to really worry about eating. TMI moment coming up but I want to be VERY honest with you all when it comes to my diet routine so if it works, you all can benefit.
For some reason, I have had to do number 2 a lot today. It doesn’t seem like diarrhea so I am guessing it is from the raspberry ketones getting rid of extra waste from my body? I am not sure. I don’t feel particularly ill but I have the “bubble guts” for lack of a better term. I went to the store and bought some Pepto and now I’m feeling better.
Today, my 30 minute activity will be rididng bikes with Brandon, my Brando! I am DEFINITELY looking forward to a good bike ride. I have been waiting for a chance to bike ride for a couple of weeks now so I am sure it is going to be fun. I am going to put on my music and just go. Another added bonus: The weather here in VA has been to die for which is adding to my enthusiam. Everyone in VA wants to be outside right now…LOL.
Alright, I have to run but I’ll be sure to keep you all updated on my 30 for 30 Weight-loss Challenge progress.
