So Far So Good

Blue Smiley Face

I thought the challenge was supposed to start yesterday, but found out Saturday that it began today. My coach told me I could start yesterday if I wanted, but this new knowledge felt like such a gift. One more day to be lazy. And it turned out to be a great thing because we ran into some friends we hadn’t seen in a while at church and went to lunch with them. I wouldn’t have been able to do that if I’d started the challenge yesterday. And when we got home I took a glorious nap on the love seat. It was nowhere near “the nap to rival all naps“, but it was pleasant.

Oh. I forgot to tell you about the weighing and measuring. Probably because I’d like to forget it myself. I’m telling you, ignorance can truly be bliss as long as you avoid mirrors and numbers. But when you have to write those numbers down it’s right there in your face and there’s no getting around it. But I didn’t cry so there’s that.

Today I began in earnest. I had a delicious omelet with spinach, red onion, orange pepper and mushrooms and a piece of whole wheat toast for breakfast. It was seriously yummy and there’s a little part of me that’s excited for breakfast tomorrow. And it was a LOT of food!

After cleaning the kitchen and doing a few other things, I finally decided I had put off the first workout long enough. But I couldn’t get the DVR to work. I really wanted to think it was a sign, but I knew it was because I couldn’t remember how to work it. So many boxes, so many remotes, so many things… But Todd came downstairs and got me all set up. I might be a little angry with him.

I know this is totally out of character for me, but I really liked the video. It was 30 minutes of exercises, but I never felt like I was going to die. Of course, I did a modified version of the modified version, but I kept moving the whole time. Maybe by the end of the 21 days I’ll be able to do the actual modified version. It’s a goal.

And now I’m finishing off a mocha almond shake. I’m feeling really good about things and I only have 20 days and about 8 hours left to go.

    You go. Seriously. It’s hard. I fail miserably every single time and go back to living on coffee and bread for weeks on end. I can’t seem to make it work so please, inspire me ­čÖé

      I’ll try, but make no promises. It’s a lot of work. It really is! Even just the food planning and prep – it’s so much easier to make a menu with tried and true standbys. And even scheduling the eating! Oy! But I’m going to do it because I can do anything for three weeks. Right? (Says the girl on day one.)
