Even though I’ve lost no actual weight this week, I am feeling considerably more optimistic. I think that’s because I finally quit both coffee and the graham crackers. Even if they were not actually adding to my weight, they were both unhealthy to consume and I am grateful to be rid of them. I have made sort of a new routine with tea and peanuts and raisins. At least they are whole foods and have no added sugar or chemicals. With the exception of a slim bagel and cream cheese, I eat only whole foods all day long now. No chemicals for me. Everything I eat is also fresh with the exception of an Amy’s burrito which is vegan and gluten-free. So I would say my eating habits have gotten considerably healthier. Even if this doesn’t have a numerical effect on my body, it will definitely have an effect on my health.
The exercise is still going, too. I won’t lie; it’s been hard. Even though I do it, I have been dreading it and sometimes barely making it through. But I am still doing the incline and the 5K a day, etc. I am still taking walks, too. I took the week off from the sit-ups because my jaw was acting up badly and I wasn’t sure if it might be related but next week they’re coming back. So here we go. Onward.
and here’s this week’s card:
