So, I usually have a hard time sticking to any one diet for whatever reason (though I’m leaning toward boredom), but I’ve actually done really well with Dr. Anderson’s “Simple Diet.” Yesterday I skipped one of the required shakes and I worry about potential consequences, but I guess we’ll see. Overall I’m satisfied throughout the day and I’m definitely pleased with the results from week 1! In the book he tells you to keep a log of your daily intake and I’ve kind of halfway done this, but more than that it’s inspired me to create a spreadsheet for my weight loss period. I have one page for my daily intake (shakes, meals, fruits and veggies, exercise and daily weight), one for weekly losses and then one for overall loss. I considered making one for monthly losses, but nixed that idea because I’m on a strange week rotation of Tuesday-Tuesday and just…dates fall weirdly period.
Anyway! This is going to be brief because I also started Jillian Michaels’ 30 Day Shred today and am going to try (again) to get up at 5:30 to do it tomorrow morning before work. I couldn’t get up to do it today, but I’m hoping I’m successful tomorrow. I also didn’t go to the gym today like I had originally planned – the whole Monday-Friday routine- but I’m also kind of reconsidering that. I’ve been reading a lot of stuff on 3FC and also hearing things through word of mouth about how you shouldn’t workout more than 3 or 4 times a week. Well…ok. I’ll do the gym 4-5 times (maybe) and I’m going to aim for doing the 30DS every morning before work and then whenever I get up and around on the weekend. We’ll see how that goes. I’ve gotta hit the sack though because I’m exhausted and again my alarm is set for 5:30. However, I did want to say huzzah for 5lbs down this week putting me at 9 pounds lost total! While I’m happy about that and I’m still mostly motivated, I’m also still very impatient and trying my best to take this journey one day and one pound at a time.
