Hello entry 100!!!! Woo-hoo! Exactly 100 days ago I started this process. I am so glad I did!!! I would not have been able to stick to it if it wasn’t for my blog. It is a HUGE part of my journey. Once all is said and done it will be great to look back to see how far I’ve come.
I have stopped weighing myself today and I will skip weighing in on Friday. I will weigh in next Friday.
I had 2 eggs and my Sara Lee 45 calorie multigrain toast for breakfast. I fried the eggs sunny side up with a teeny tiny amount of my light I can’t believe it’s not butter. I had about 4 cups of green tea today and about 16 glasses of water. I had a half of an avocado with some tortilla chips for a snack and then had a lean cuisine for lunch. For dinner I had some steamed beets and green beans. A while after I ate dinner I had some triscuits and animal crackers. I am still sucking on the water bottle. I can’t get enough of the stuff; LOL!
I danced for my workout today. I love to dance. I get a TOTAL body workout! I move every part of my body; head to toe. I stay constant I just get into the grooooove. I was watching “Obese & Pregnant” yesterday (yes that’s a real show) and one of the women needed to lose weight after she had her baby and she told the Doctor that she had planned on buying a treadmill the next week and he said “oh, no you don’t need to buy a treadmill! Just do something you enjoy doing.” That really hit home with me and I figured why can’t I dance for a workout? I enjoy it and don’t even think twice about if I want to do something or not. I stay constant and sometimes by the time I’m done I have exceeded a half hour and I feel so great afterwards and am pouring sweat. I was talking to my Mom yesterday about how I feel like I breathe cleaner. I didn’t know how to put it at the time but I feel like I can breathe deeper and I don’t get out of breath as fast. It’s almost like I had a filter and someone just changed it after so many years of being clogged. The new feelings and things I have been experiencing now make me realize what I felt all this time was not normal. Part of me feels like I have wasted most of my life destroying myself with fast food/junk food. My normal used to be to sleep as long as I can; when I can and to stay up as late as I could. Every single night Michael and I would eat so much junk food and watch movies. I never wanted to go anywhere or do anything. I was so lazy. Our breakfasts, lunch and dinners were not great either. He still eats junk but no where near as much as he used to eat with me. Our breakfasts/lunch were a whole pack of bacon split between the 2 of us, fried potatoes cooked with about a stick of butter and I would also have eggs and toast on top of it. For dinner it was the same thing or we would each have a whole box of macaroni and cheese but most of the time for dinner we would split a Digornio pizza. Sometimes we would order out for pizza and each get our own large because we like different things. There were no problems finishing them off. I have come a long, long, longggg way since then! I am no where near that way anymore. I am so proud of myself and my body is thanking me for it.
