I can't believe I haven't had a moment to catch up here. It's been a very busy week, but a good week. Despite working lots of hours, I haven't skipped a day of juicing and I've worked raw fruits and veggies into my meals or snacks throughout the week. The withdrawal symptoms from sugar are starting to abate, I'm starting to feel that calm that I only ever feel when I'm eating less sugar. I did have dinner out on Friday as we were celebrating a good friend's 40th. I had cake, a nice meal and lots of likker. I don't know what it was about it, but I didn't overeat nor did I finish my cake. ME?! Leave cake?! This is some sort of breakthrough for me. I've been working on Paul McKenna's 4 golden rules, so maybe that was it.
Things aren't looking great on the exercise front, but small steps, small changes have been working wonders so far. I did buy a resistance band at Target yesterday and I measured a loop around my block to start walking. It's fairly flat one-half mile that might be a good place for me to start. Prevention magazine's website has lots of information on walking for fitness as well as a personalized walking workout with a calendar. I need to do mine, print it and take that first step.
Tomorrow is the weigh-in!
