I don’t know about you, but stepping out of my comfort zone stresses me out and makes me extremely anxious. Especially pursuing something out of my comfort zone alone. Last week I mentioned a Group Power class that I’ve been wanting to take at my gym. I woke up with a headache last Saturday morning, so I didn’t end up going. Convenient huh? I sent my sister a text today asking if she wanted to take the class with me this Saturday. (she has a membership at the same gym) She said she already had a couple of things going on, so she wasn’t going to be able to make it. This instantly makes me want to chicken out. It’s so frustrating because I know darn well that I’ll be happy I went when the class is done. So, once again I am announcing to you that I WILL take this class on Saturday at 8:00am.
I really need to add some variety to my workouts and I’ve always liked group classes, so I think this will be really good for me.
Day 4 is in the books! Here are some things that I’ve noticed the last couple of days:
- I can smell sugar from a mile away. Ok, maybe not that far but I feel like I notice it a lot more now.
- I feel less swollen. For awhile there my stomach actually started to look like I was pregnant and this week it’s not as bad. I also notice it in my face and hands.
- I haven’t been craving carbs as much as I thought I would. Today I actually had a craving for steak!
- I used to eat a lot of carbs without even realizing it. When I think about what I used to eat – even when I was eating “healthier” most of my meals contained carbs.
I stepped on the scale again first thing yesterday morning.
Down another .8 for a total loss of 6.8 lbs since Saturday.
Breakfast was 2 frittata’s again.
One hard boiled egg and a light string cheese for a snack.
Lunch was a salad with a leftover turkey burger.
Later in the afternoon, I had a Kiku apple.
I told Dane that I was craving steak, so he went to Publix and picked up New York Strip Steaks for us.
He grilled the asparagus as well. The other veggies were also leftover but I was full after the steak and asparagus, so I didn’t eat them.
I’ve been doing pretty good at mixing up lunch and dinner but my snacks are getting repetitive, so I need to try and add some variety.
My sister posted this last night from The Keys. Isn’t it gorgeous?
Gotta love Florida. :) Today is actually her birthday – Happy Happy Birthday, Tanya!!!
