recap of my 1st of 2 days pre-gag challenge

So today Saturday, is day one of two before my weight loss challenge.

I'm scared I forgot how to count calories, I'm scared I forgot how to log what I ate, what I did and how far I have gone.

I am not posting weight until Monday, so just deal. Pictures on Monday too...

Today was like to most unstructured day ever.
I had too  much juice, too much yogurt, too much cheese, I had nutella (which I said no more of), but besides this I had a nice veggie risotto, and salad. I did have an extra half a bowl of risotto, left over from my princess...

I need to actually count the cal, I also didnt take my vitamins today (bad mommy).

I am feeling better and yesterday I ordered my PS3 Move, with Fit in 6 and zumba. I have tried numerous times for the gym but with the brat of a princess.... its a fail and waist of money. So I am going to do this instead. it has worked in the past so why not do it again.

the key to my weight loss is the one thing I don't do.. work out.... exercise... get active.... be fit....well you get the idea. So tonight before I go to sleep I will stretch my little muscles, and I will do this for the next few days till 1) I am off the injured list, 2) till my Move comes and I can start doing actual workouts.

I am going to start up my caloriecount account again. and if its on my phone maybe I can log in more of what I eat and have it do the math for me. little by little. step by step. I have no idea how after 2 years of personal development and leadership training that this is scaring me more than anything.

well gn every one off to stretch and do my studies for tomorrow.

Blogging again after all this time.

It has been so long,  too long.  I miss writing, I miss my fellow bloggers and I miss the sense of accomplishment I received from blogging challenges. 

So here I am! Fresh!  And I am scared. And I am excited. I wish I actually knew where to start. Lets just jump right in.

Last time I blogged I had just started my gluten free journey. (NO THIS WILL NOT BE ANOTHER GLUTEN FREE BLOG) I spent many years suffering and denying the fact that I had severe fibromyalgia. Well I am in denial no more and have accepted help. Keeping to the advice and staying strong is hard. I feel the last few months I have been having such a hard time.  I need to be more careful.  I need to pay closer attention.  Most importantly I need to keep my will strong through all of this. 

Fibro is very hard to deal with especially as an active single mom who works her butt off. Taking a day cause I don't feel good can't happen. Getting sick hurts more than just my ego, or my body. 

So I joined in with my fellow gagers from my last weight loss challenge.  I know that if I stay healthy and gluten free, one- I can loose all this painful swelling weight.  Two- I can be more active and in less pain. Three- I can feel better about myself. Four- I can comfortably fit into all my cloths again.

I think the most important is the swelling and the pain. I need to get rid of them. They hurt me every day. I have severe fibro fog sometimes. And worst of all some days I am just down right unmotivated.

The great thing is I have wonderful help. For the past year and a half I have been using the isagenix products and they help me so much. To rid my body of toxins and to keep me full of nutrition that even tho I eat mostly organic my food can still not give me.

I have a few goals with this challenge most to be healtier. Going to the gym is damn near impossible. And even tho I am actually on the injured list for another two weeks I just bought myself the ps3 move and 3 games. Including ea active. Which helped me lose all my pregnancy weight. 

Being active is going to be my hardest challenge.  My goal is to work out at least 4 times a week for 1 hour. I know this is going to be such a shock for my body but I will live. I need this.  Also the healtier the food I put into my body the eaiser it will be for me to work out. One step at a time.

The other part to all of this is getting sleep.  I am amazing at skipping sleep. I can't do this. So as it nears 10pm.  I bid you all good night.  Till tomorrow. 

Sweet dreams bloggers
