Doing my happy dance! I know it isn't much but for me redoing the day ones almost 50 times, I am glad to be on day 3:-) My orginial date is to shoot for 25 days July 30th, for now I am doing mini goals, so I will give myself 10 days til next Tuesday. But i am sure I will continue on;-) I don't want to overwhelm myself. I was going to post day one on Saturday, but was scared I would fail again, and told myself I would not post til I made it to day 3:-)
Anyhow I on Saturday I powerwalked for and hour and 50 minutes. Day one was very hard to get out of the habit of eating. But I fought through it, found other things to do instead and made it! Yesterday, I powerwalked for an hour and 25 minutes. where is this girl getting all this energy? I don't know, but I told myself, if my body said it needed rest, i would rest it and I DID just that with taking a 2 hour nap yesterday:-)
Had a weird thing happen in church though, not during praise and worship or the sermon, but during prayer time, my stomach was doing this loud growling...LOL The funny thing was it wasn't a hunger growl, I mean I had no desire to eat anything, but it was growling for some odd reason. Yesterday I stuck mostly to water all day, then I cooked lasgna for the family with garlic bread, my favorite and was overwhelm, that I had to sip on my tea while cooking, then I ran upstairs so they could eat it all!
Sorry, to make a long post, just excited, feel great and I know NOW I can do this. For I lean on not my own power but God's, He explained that to me yesterday:-) Anyhow, I am off now to do Billy Blanks bootcamp taebo! All you guys just starting or trying to start, hang in there, don't give up and you can do it! Cause I did and I had many many many first starts days ones, shoot click on my name and you will see all my starts within the last two months!
Have a good day all, will post again of success tomorrow:-0
Thank you Lively for being there for me and you are such an inspiration!!!!!!
Still dancing:-) Again had to take another nap yesterday...LOL But it was only an hour one cause I had other things to do. I went to the gym yesterday after work to play racquetball to only see that I left my racquet at home, how great. So, came home instead and got on my treadmill and thats why put me in the bed.
Wasn't anything to cook because there were left overs, but hubby wanted me to stop by Wendys to get him some food and the kids wanted food, so I went and bought and had no temptations at all. When I came home from dropping off food, hubby had gone to the store and brought all kinds of snacks, double stuff oreos, tons of candy, mostly for the kids but we all ususally share. I don't too much get into chocolate but I use to eat about two rolls of the cookies ONLY eating the cream out of the cookies. Was offered some last nigt, said no even to the oreo sandwiches they have now. So rewarding and relaxing. But I will have to say a truth, what keeps me going is the thought that I can get up the next day and post day whatever which is telling me that I made it through the day and pressing in to the next!
Wow, I am rambling on again, because of all the excitement. Anyhow gotta go get on this treadmill before work and NOW I have my racquet so I can go play racquet ball after work! Good luck to everyone and have a great day! Oh, I suppose some is wondering what the scale is saying, well, I don't know. I will get on that thing on day 10 (next Tuesday)!
Wow, I can say I am not hungry. After having NO food for 5 days, I thought I would be fallen over bent at the stomach cause of hunger like I was gonna die. But no such thing:-) This is awesome, I am praying that I do make it these last 20 days:-)
Yesterday as I was driving around, I hard the biggest craving for this baked fish they make here in Hawaii and thought about it most of the day. But I had no desire to cave in to buy it and eat it. It was just on my mind is all. I feel so great when I get up in the morning because it has always been my peak:-) This morning I am off to go running.
Friday we are having a party at work which involves pizza and you know the norm....but I will be taking my tea and sipping on it throughout the party declining nicely any foods and since it will be day 7, I am hoping the smell will be repulsive than inviting:-)
Oh and I made a miscalculation, day 10 for me is on next Monday not Tuesday and in truth, I am still not ready for the scale....so I may weigh, I may not. Scales are always breaking points for me. If I see no loss, I tell myself what's the use and start to binge AND if there is a loss I'll eat anyway to celebrate. What sense does that make??? I know, I am working this out in my head;-) My goal is to replace old habits with better ones and wanting to rip into a fruit salad after this fast (already have the day planned ON a calendar) is HUGE 360 than my fasts or diets before:-)
Well, as normal, I am rambling on again. All those who are fasting, whatever kind of fast, hang tight, we can do this. We all have certain goals we would like to reach, whether its weight or for illnesses. I already cant wait to post again tomorrow, posting is very encouraging for me and helps keep me on track. Ok, I am done:-)
I put on an all black workout outfit THEN stood in the full length mirror and I looked a size smaller, so I was happy;-) You know the saying, wearing black makes you look smaller...LOL
For all those who thought I had slipped, nope! I know I am going the right direction and have energy to do what I need to do on a daily basis AND NOT hungry, why quit?
Have a good day and I hope this made you smile:-)
