Boy, I really let myself down yesterday. I was so tired, I had a hard time getting anything done. But I feel like I should have pushed through the tiredness. Instead I let it be an excuse to make bad food choices, even though all I have to do is make a shake! I'm getting back up on this horse and trying again, I will do better than yesterday! I've already made a good start, got up when my alarm went off, drank some juice and worked out.
I really think there is something, some vitamin or mineral, that I am lacking that is in the juice. I thought it was B12 but that is mostly in meats and dairy. But the juice giving me energy gives me hope that it is not the pre-diabetes or anything too serious.
Speaking of juicing, DH got some kale yesterday that has a weird, almost chemical smell/aftertaste to it. Yuck. The only way to get rid of it was to parboil it and then shock it, and even then it still tasted a little off, had to add some extra lemon to make it drinkable. The first batch was not drinkable. But we got these three huge bags of kale and I hate to waste it!! Don't know what to do. Maybe I should try a veggie wash with vinegar?
I lost another pound!! I'm down to 232! Never thought I'd be happy to be that weight, lol. My bmi is 42.68, so happy to see it down! Motivates me more to lose weight!
Did my 30 minutes of step this morning and still need to stretch. I can't go to the park today as planned because the landlord has someone coming over to look at the fridge "between 10 and 2". That is a pretty big gap of time that I can't make plans in. *grump* So I'm going to set my timer and try to get in a few more minutes of step, my 3 minutes on my elliptical and my strength training and stretching. I'm not going to let the last two days bog me down, I'm not going to worry about it, I'm going to keep moving forward!
Juice for breakfast, so a shake for lunch. Though I'm supposed to have a shake for breakfast and lunch, those shakes are so much I can't eat a whole one for a meal. It's more like breakfast and lunch. I like not having to worry about what to eat except maybe a side salad or some fruit, though I put fruit in the shakes. Dinner is going to be hard for the next few days, budget is tight, and half of our food got ruined with the fridge dying. But we had plenty of stuff in the deep freeze, so should be okay, plenty of frozen veggies and chicken, we should be able to come up with something!
My goals for today are to:
Get the living room and kitchen cleaned, including sweeping, organizing and mopping!
Don't forget to set my timer and get my strength training and elliptical done today!
Drink my water!
Stay on my food goals/plan
Spend some time outside!
Clean out the fridge
Find a solution for my kale problem!!
Hope everyone has a blessed day! I'm praying the my energy holds out and that I'm able to make it through today without any major fatigue problems!
