The biggest change in me is my energy. This protein & veggie rich diet with the added yogurts & fruit gives me nothing but energy. I feel GREAT! If only I could bank this..
Last night we went for a family walk down to the school, while the kids played I went for a trail hike, short and sweet, maybe 20 minutes, but it was so nice.
When I got back to the playground, I played. I was surprised at how much of the equipment is made to build core strength! It was hard, way harder than when I was a kid. So my hubby and I challenged each other to hanging crunches, balance walks and climbing walls. It was a blast & my tummy felt the burn. We are making this part of our evening routine. When he gets home, we go for a walk & a family play time together.
We were all happy, the kids, the dog and even my normally grumpy after work hubby too. I look forward to more evenings spent this way.
Today I am down .6 of a lb. I can't complain, I mean that is a lot in one day. No 5 or 2, but I'll take it! At this rate I will be down 10 this week and that is A-Mazing. I am looking forward to the next 2.2 lbs, I haven't been able to break that barrier in 5 years.. If I loose 2.3 lbs, I will have entered into the realm of my first weight loss goal. This goal I have had for 3 years. I have tried Weight Watchers, gym, Women Food & God, and now.. the 17 day diet and this one feels so promising!!! I can see it.. I can smell it... come on 2.3lbs.. I need you now... More than words can say.. I need you now...OK enough of the cheesy song..
Have a great day! Xox Aly
