June 23rd, 2016: Exhaustion & Pushing Through (I've Got This!)

Well, I think my body is angry with me. I really think there is about a 2 week period of time where, if you fully commit yourself to life change, your body goes a little crazy. I mean I've got the headaches going on, my stomach goes back and forth, and sometimes I feel weak, even though I've had plenty of healthy stuff to give me lots of energy. I remember this feeling from last time...I just have to push through, because it does go away. I just keep telling myself, "it's only temporary, and I can do this!

It has been a long day for me. I slept like poo again last night. I used to take Melatonin every night to help me sleep, but I weaned myself off of it, because I don't like being dependant on a drug to be able to do anything. So now...I'm not resting well. And when I do sleep, it's very broken up. My fitbit senses every time I move or wakeup and you should see it! It's craziness. I really hope that, as I continue to workout regularly and have MUCH better eating habits, that hopefully my sleep balances out as well. Otherwise, I'm just going to crash every few days, and that will definitely slow down the weight loss.

 So I went to the Y with my cousin Jessica again (she's been a great motivational partner this week!) and her mom came with us. My number one goal was to wear myself out in hopes of being able to get a good night's sleep tonight. We planned to meet there after I got off of work and go to Zumba, however, when we arrived we were crushed to find that it had been cancelled for the second night in a row. So I took a peek at the group class schedule and saw that they had a Y Pump class at the same time. I used to go to that class all the time & I Loved it. So I talked them in to going. If you don't know what it is, it's kind of a mixture of light aroebics and torture, I mean weight lifting style stuff, lol. We did lunges and some yoga style stuff and it's just a nice all around way to get your heartrate up build some muscle up too.

Well we did the best we I'm proud of us! We had fun and put in a good effort and got some pretty calorie burn going on. We also warmed up before hand on the treadmill with a 10 minute walk. So, all in all, I'm pretty happy with what we accomplished. And now I'm sitting at home, just got done with a short visit with my sister and her two babies and eating dinner and I am just exhausted! Lol...I already having muscles hurting that haven't hurt in a long time...I FEEL THE BURN BABY! Hahahahaha

So here's my breakdown for food today. I feel like it was a good day!

PB Banana Smoothie, because I'm an addict and I added a Plum today (because they are soooo good for you!) = 490 cals

Salad made with: Baby Kale Salad Mix, 2oz. Honey Turkey Breast, Fresh Mushrooms, small diced tomato, Parmesan-Romano Shredded Cheese, and 1 sev Ranch Dressing = 293 cals

Afternoon Snack
1/2 cup cottage cheese, 1/2 cup fresh strawberries with 1 tsp of Sugar in the Raw sprinkled on top, and a Plum = 183 cals

6oz Chicken Breast (grilled on the stove in some Olive Oil with Webers Garlic & Herb Seasoning on top, that seasoning is the!), a whole can of french style green beans (I was hungry) with a tiny bit of Worschester (Idk how to spell that) Sauce drizzled on top, and 2/3 of steamed corn = 410 cals

I'm currently sitting at 1376 calories for the day, so I'll probably have a serving of Almonds before bed. :)

My pitiful face after my workout tonight. :)

My super tasty and pretty salad. 

And then my dinner. Simple and sweet and super easy to throw together when I was all worn out!
