Week 1

Here’s the latest on my weight loss lifestyle change to healthier me!

Weight: May 7 – 136.8

Loss:  1.4 lbs.

Last week I just started eating clean for the most part.  I indulged with chips and dip and a margarita..ok…THREE margaritas on Cinco De Mayo.  But, that’s ok.  I still want to live my life…just make changes slowly.

I did a couple of yoga classes (one of which was dedicated to my Evan!) and that’s pretty much it.

I’m starting to swap things out slowly…

Natural popcorn instead of chips.

Fruit instead of dessert (this is one I really struggle with).

I try and eat a salad for one meal a day…even for breakfast.

I’m finding that I have a serious addiction to sugar. I’m also realizing I turn to food when I’m sad.  Normally – if I’m under stress – I don’t eat.  But, this week, I was crying while washing bottles (not unusual), and I immediately wanted to eat a Nutella on a graham cracker.  Yum.  But, I wasn’t hungry.  Just wanted a bit of sweet to perk me up.

I will do a cleanse/fast for a few days to get my body back to center. I also need some time to feed my soul and spiritual side.

If you want to join me, I’ll be doing Daniel’s Fast and meditating on scriptures throughout the day.  I’ll start the fast starting Monday and will do it for 10 days.

If you have suggestions, recipe sites, motivating words…please leave a comment!  If you plan on joining me on this journey to a healthier me to find a healthier you…let me know by leaving a comment as well!

    will that affect your milk for Evan on the Fast? I’m interested in trying one myself since I seem to have that same addiction to sugar! 🙂

      I’m not pumping anymore 🙁 I made it to 3 months but my supply dried up with all the tricks. I chose not to take any medication to help it – worried how it may affect Evan.

  2. I’m down almost a pound for week 1!
    Love your dedication to a salad every day. I used to be so good about fresh veggies and fruit, but nowdays, often don’t make the time to prepare it. It’s faster and easier to grab the Fritos… maybe I’ll tape a former bikini pic to that bag of chips, ha!

    awe. i’m sorry you didn’t get to continue with nursing. Glad you’re not messing with the stress of trying to make it return and the implications of more medicine on him. Smart momma! 🙂 I’d give you mine, if I had any left. 🙂
