I know I have been MIA a little more than usual. While I feel badly because I’m not writing every day, it is well worth it to me because I’m using that time to get healthier and all my hard work is continuing to pay off!
This past week I have continued to exercise regularly and watch what I eat. And the results have been pretty awesome!
Last week I lost another 2.6 pounds, which means I have lost 26 pounds since January 1st.
Yesterday was interesting because I learned, very quickly, how a change in diet can impact my health. As I have been doing so well, and being so strict with myself, I decided to have 2 hotdogs for supper. I made sure they stayed within my daily caloric intake so I thought they would be a tasty change. What I learned, though, was that after eating them, I felt sluggish and tired. I lacked energy and focus. What did I learn? Food is the fuel of my body and, the same way I wouldn’t put pop in my gastank, I shouldn’t put unhealthy foods in my body. Lesson learned!
