This week has had it’s ups and downs. I keep reminding myself that poor health and 10 extra pounds didn’t happen overnight! I’ve had some successes that I’m excited about, but also some real struggles.
The Highlights of My Week
By the end of week 1 I had last five pounds! I was super duper excited and so motived to keep going. This was going to be a breeze!
I faithfully did my workouts except for over the weekend. I’ve been going to the track and doing walk/run intervals. I’ve been eating a lot of salad, chicken and steamed veggies.
My husband got the girls a donut yesterday morning for a special treat, but I told him to not get me any! I’m trying to be very careful about what planned indulgences I do. I knew at some point I would make my family brownies (they had been asking for them!), so I made those last night and that was my planned treat.
I am so thankful I started taking Thyromin, a thyroid and adrenal supplement from Young Living. My Dr. approved me taking it on top of my Armour Thyroid medicine, and I can tell a big difference when I take it! I had started having days where I just felt blue, I was fighting back tears and couldn’t figure out why! There was absolutely no reason to feel that way. This supplement really helped that, along with helping my fatigue. I also sleep better at night when I take it right before bed.
The Low Parts of my Week
Pride goeth before the fall.
I woke up on Tuesday and didn’t eat until 11:00 AM. Totally my own fault and I paid for it dearly. My blood sugar crashed hard, and I kept eating all day long to try to feel better. Most of what I ate was ok, but I ate a of it (nut mix, cheese sticks, apple gouda sausage, etc). I woke up the next morning and had gained back 2 pounds. Yesterday was kind of the same day, I just felt super dizzy and shaky and was still trying to get my blood sugar back to where it should be (I have low blood sugar). I haven’t weighed myself to see where I’m at, because I’m just going to keep pressing forward.
I’m still really enjoying the Fit Yummy Mummy workouts. When you join her forum you get two videos you alternate through each month. About when you are ready to move on to a new workout, the new month comes along and you get two new videos to learn!
Her advertising shows a lot of bikinis and bare skin. This is what her workouts are really like. She does them all on her back porch, and wears tanks and shorts or workout pants.
I love that the workouts include kettle bells, and dumbbells. You work on strength training three days and then cardio on the off days. It’s working for me so I’m going to keep at it!
