So... I woke up this morning with ease at 4:45 and realized for the first morning in a long time I just feel great. I wanted to get up and get out of bed, I didn't feel sick, I had no trouble getting to the gym. I was at the gym before my fail safe friend calls to get me out of bed...and this is all coming off the heels of what was the best on track weekend I have had in a very long time.
First off...I have felt like CRAP...absolute crap, every day since I put down the cigarettes. Apparently day 37 is my lucky day as far as my body adjusting to me removing a long time toxin. I've continued eating healthy and exercising and posting and counting for a week (I re-committed to being health serious in December - whole health...starting with the butts and now moving into serious commitment to food and fitness) and while it's only been a week...the first week of any change is the hardest.
The weekend was a full of NSV's for me. I stayed eating healthy and not boredom snacking. I worked out. I got good rest. On Sunday morning when the BF rolled over and said he was going to Honey Dew I said fine, drove him, got a black coffee, dropped him off at his house, went to the grocery store, got healthy provisions and made healthy Sunday am breakfast while he at bagels and donuts(to which he then whined and as always ended up eating some of mime)...he isn't heavy...at 6'4" he weighs in at a whopping 188 but still he always complains that he needs to eat less sweets... THEN ... because he's a waste in the kitchen and it's just easier if I cook I made healthy Greek night...to much protest from the boy who agrees to give me free reign in the kitchen then whines for me to make him pesto pizza...well that's a big fat no from me. I did not give in. It was home made bruchetta with wheat bread and just a touch of olive oil and tons of herbs and I found this recipe for Greek pasta...whole wheat, spinach, tomatoes, white beans...delicious. He ate a ton and loved it so pesto pizza problem solved...and I was happy to measure and eat appropriate servings and get to have a healthy meal which still felt like a guilty pleasure treat.
This morning I was up, out, worked out, back, showered and ready for work before I even woke him up at 6:30am. AND now I'm finally starting to feel energized after the early morning work out...not whipped.
Anyway I was just feeling really good today and I needed someplace to share it. I hope everyone has a wonderful day. Happy Hallmark Holiday to all!
