“SLOW Progress is better than NO Progress” – Fitlosophy Calendar
I awake and move towards the almighty scale not really knowing what to expect. Yesterday was a good enough diet day, not great but not bad. It was a little off, ok, maybe more than a little. I’m overdue for my vitamin B shot so I was exhausted all day and it was hard to muster up the energy to exercise. The shot also contains inositol which really does great things for me. It seems to drastically reduce my food cravings and help balance my blood sugar which makes me less hungry, so sans inositol I was very hungry all day. Check out https://draxe.com/inositol/
For the first time since she’s been driving, I eagerly jumped in the car with my 15-year-old daughter Taylor yesterday, so she could take me to the weight loss clinic. I was excited to get my vitamin B shot and purchase a bottle of the Fat Burner. The clinic is about 15 minutes of pure driving torture from my house. When we got there, we discovered the clinic was closed for the day. Ugh. How could I be so irresponsible to run out of the Fat Burner and get behind on my vitamin B shot? I thought about throwing myself on the ground and pitching a fit. I also contemplated driving 45 minutes away to the next closest clinic, but my kids’ schedules wouldn’t allow for either, so I decided to wait until tomorrow.
As for exercise, I walked and did 8 minutes of kickboxing, but I couldn’t walk at the same intensity I normally do. My Son’s amazing therapist and sitter, who has become an integral part of our family and has worked for us for over two years, is leaving for grad school in two days. If that isn’t a reason to slurp down two martinis and a piece of flourless chocolate cake I don’t know what is. Anyways, a potential babysitting candidate called right at the moment I was going to take off for a walk. Finding good sitters that work for my special needs son is like finding gold on the beach, so I had to talk to her. I walked for our entire 40-minute conversation, but I didn’t want to scare her away, so I didn’t walk at my normal super-freak intensity.
Looks like the almighty scale is registering in at the same weight as yesterday. I’ll take it for today. I will be getting my vitamin B shot and Fat Burner today, and eating better and getting a better work out in, so the scale should know she’ll be going down!
I have a confession to make. I eat processed food sometimes. I don’t like to and with all the special diets we’ve been through with my son who has been affected by Autism, I can’t even believe I do, but sometimes when push comes to shove, I eat processed foods.
And yesterday was one of those days. I had a goal of starting to publish my food journals on Pinterest yesterday and almost didn’t because I was embarrassed by the fact that I had eaten processed food a few times throughout the day. I stock a few of the weight loss clinics high protein low carb snacks so I have them in a pinch. My favorites are the chocolate celebration delite bars and the BBQ zappers because they are both tasty treats that ring in at under 100 calories and 10 grams of protein. They can be found in Tanya’s Treasures.
I have another confession to make. I’m thinking of cheating on my diet. Well, I guess I have already kind of started. I was googling around last night, and one click led to another…… I came across The South Beach Diet Super Charged. I told you about Tony and my success with the South Beach Diet in 1,2,3 Ketosis Again, so how could I not be curious? I ordered the book and well, we’ll see.
What about you, what would you like to confess?
