I feel like this weight is melting off. It's crazy. Today is day 12 on this crack diet and I've been on plan--mostly--the entire time. Saturday night I had a wee indiscretion--some frozen cool whip free & an atkins 2 carb bar. But other than that, I've been pretty much spot on with the food choices.
My energy is finally coming back from adding back carbs slowly. Tomorrow is my first carb up day, and I can't wait. But I must say, other than the occasional chocolate craving, I've not been craving junk food. Not even when I'm stressed, not when I'm tired, not when it's time for bed. It's amazing how the body changes when you feed it primarily proteins, fats, and nonrefined carbohydrates.
I don't think I've ever eaten healthier than I am right now.
Exercise, though, is pitiful. I didn't run once this weekend, and I could give lots of excuses--I didn't have enough time, we had tropical storm-ish winds on Sunday and I couldn't run before church because I could have been impaled by tree limbs, we had a birthday dinner with my dad Sunday afternoon--but the truth is I just didn't make time for it. I'm going to run this afternoon. Hopefully.
At least the weather has finally broken and it feels like fall. Love it.
Yesterday we got the winds from leftover Ike, but no rain. There were tons of trees & limbs down everywhere, and many people are without power, but it's nothing like what folks in the South are going through. At our house, we lost one smallish tree limb and that's it. We lost power while we were at church, but it was back on by the time we got home. We are so very lucky. Most people who are without power around here aren't going to get it back for at least 2 or 3 days.
All these storms and stories of people scrambling for supplies make me want to get my emergency kit in place. I know, I know. I really need to do that. Before it's too late.
Well, I am slammed at work, so I will try to catch up with your blogs later. Hope you are all safe and sound.
