The past few days I’ve been sitting and every time I try to sit down and write about my continuing journey, I hit a writer’s block wall.
It’s not that I don’t have a lot to tell you all; it’s just that I can’t seem to organize my thoughts.
It’s probably the lack of coffee!
From December to March, I hit a wall. Hard. While I was still making an effort (or so I thought), I went up….and down…and up…and down. By the beginning of March I was basically at the same point I’d been at the beginning of December.
And it was frustrating.
I made some dramatic changes at this point. I went back to classes at the gym — I find that I work harder in classes because I’m pretty competitive and stubborn so I find myself challenging my body to work harder.
In terms of my diet, I’ve been tracking my meals even more closely than I did before, thanks to my menu calendar.
I switched out cereal as my early meal to fruit-based meals. I tried to mix it up with various types of fruit, primarily apples, pears, bananas, oranges and grapefruit.
I also gave up artificial sweetener and switched to a raw type of sugar which, in turn, has led me to give up coffee for the most part as well.
The result has been excellent! In the past 2 weeks I have lost almost 5 pounds. I am really tired at the end of the day but I also find myself sleeping well.
My goal is to continue on the path I am traveling. I feel good and have more confidence. And I know I can reach my goal!
