Hello out there!
I’ve been MIA ever since my mother in law has been here. The computer is in her room, and since my only quiet time to blog is at night, I rarely get a chance to get online. But, my awesome mom bought us a laptop, so I am back to stay! yay!
I was SUPER nervous about going off track when Ramadan came. We fast for an entire month, during the daytime hours–no food or drink till sunset. Last year just before Ramadan, I was down about 25lbs, and blew it because the binging voice in my head let me believe that I could eat ANYTHING I wanted at night since I was fasting during the day. Well, that obviously didn’t work because I ballooned WAY up after that. :/
BUT, I am Oh-So-Happy to report that I did not sabotage myself, and am now 50lbs lighter and am blissfully happy here in ONEderland!!! I am currently 194.2, and have been for a while. I had to stop doing the workouts towards the end of Ramadan, I was getting too tired and could tell my body needed a break. But, I can definitely tell a difference in my body and am going to start the Shred back up tomorrow. Even though I was still losing, I just didn’t feel as fit, and even right now I feel like I weigh 250lbs or something…..I don’t know, but I definitely need to listen to these cues that my body gives me and not ignore them. So, tomorrow I will feel better after ‘shredding’. haha
Well, I guess that’s about it…..my boys are sick with a stomach virus, so I’m hoping tomorrow is better for them. It’s so not fun when the little ones are sick. My oldest starts Kindergarten on Monday, so I’m hoping he’s all better by then!
Ok, thanks for reading!!!!
