Today was actually a really good day :) No headaches, no stuffy nose, wasnt tired, wasnt hungry, wasnt irritable. I really felt good. This morning it was sunny, since i knew it was supposed to rain I took advantage of catching the sunshine and went roller skating on the broadwalk at the beach. I didnt push myself and go fast or 10 miles or anything. I only was there 40 minutes. But the sun felt great, moving around felt great, and i was practicing my body acceptance by wearing a biikini that clearly shows all my sag and wrinkles. I think its to the point now youd have to be retarded not to realize i lost a ton of weight. But it still makes me feel like im not supposed to be exposed and i shouldnt be in a bikini. Pain in my ass.
i had some hair appointments today but got to eat all my meals at home with supplements taken on time. It's 915 and ive already finished my gallon of water. I will probably be up about two more hours so im sure ill have at least one more glass also.
i ordered myself a new fitness watch today. Its by Basis. I had researched it before i got the UP and really wanted it, but it was being remodeled and out of stock. I signed up to be alerted when it came back around, but ended up getting the UP band when I found out it could take up to a year.
I loved the UP band, but it malfunctions too much. I got it in March and since then ive had to get 3 new ones. The customer service is great, they never charge me for a replacement, but its a pain in the ass. Also, it gauges sleep and calorie burn by movement, like most fitness bands. my new watch will actually read my body temperature, sweat level, and heartbeat, so it will be much more accurate. I love the app for the UP but hate that it doesnt sync wirelessly, this watch does, hopefully I like it's app. my only concern is when i do mud runs, a lot of them have a little swimming and this, like the UP, can get wet showering or doing dishes, but shouldnt be worn while swimming. the up band was so easy to take off and wrap around my pony tail to swim and then put it back on when i got to land. oh well, ill figure it out. the UP band is a cool starter band, but im ready to move on. I just got a replacement like a month ago so ill be selling it on ebay to make a few bucks back.
I was watching that show "Extra" and theyre talking about Marissa (dont know her last name), the chubby girl from hairspray. the actress lost a ton of weight and looks great. she was sharing her secrets and they include bringing a dish that is safe to you to holiday parties so youre never in a place where theres NOTHING for you to eat- which was awesome because i tell people that all the time. She also said she is keeping off her weight by continuing to eat 1200 calories and working out every day.
the male host comments by saying "1200 calories?! she needs to eat some food! thats like an appetizer!" and that, my friends, is the obesity epedemic in america. if you eat good clean food, and the amount of fruits and vegetables youre SUPPOSED to eat (no, not the food pyramid. if you follow that youll be fat in no time) 1200 calories is actually a LOT of food. i typically eat between 1200 and 1300 when im not on this reset. and people ALWAYS comment on how often i eat. you should not be eatin 1200 calories in an appetizer!
speaking of the reset, ive barely talked about it today lol i guess thats because i dont have anything to complain about today. i did notice my hair is much oilier than normal, if i have to complain lol. but as usual, i read about someone else experiencing that on the support page so i'm not surprised. I'm really trying to keep the eye in the ultimate prize and not cheat at all. Most of my cheats have been an extra handful of nuts of berries here or there- but I gotta stay focused. Not only to detox properly but to get to 142. I wrote 142 on construction paper and post it's and put it all around the house so I cannot slip up and over eat or eat something not on my plan or skip my workouts. I am so pumped to go HAM with meal planning and working out when this is over. And it's no longer far away so I'm getting excited rather than dreading all the time I can't workout like an animal lol like i said, today was a good day. i feel sane. I feel happy. I feel normal. if this is an indicator of how i will feel when i am done, i look forward to it :-D
