****Please bear with me, I am having some blog issues that I hope to have resolved today — this should just be affecting how my site looks, but please let me know if you are having any problems!****
As I mentioned, I had a rough week this last week. But, I am not letting that stop me!
I ate badly more than half this week. And my cravings centered around 3 things: cheese, nuts, and chocolate! All three things I was not eating, and I definetely was restricting myself too much. I think part of the reason for my food issues is that my calories were not enough to fuel the exercise I was doing, and I was hungry all the time! I should know better … it isn’t like I have never tried to lose weight before! So, I have started incorporating those 3 foods specifically, so I am not feeling so deprived.
I also wasn’t taking my vitamins this week, and I wasn’t drinking kombucha! I really wasn’t feeling well cause I love my kombucha! I also have ceased counting calories for now – I think that put me in a way too restrictive mode – I was overanalyzing every thing I was eating, and under fueling myself. Maybe at some point I will be stronger and I can start counting calories again, but I feel good with the decision to stop for now.
Last week is now behind me. My weight was a little up this morning, but this week I am moving forward!
Here are some scenes from what I did this weekend to relax, count my blessings, and enjoy life:
Homemade kombucha, in the glass I got from my 5K race! I started fermenting my kombucha a few days longer, and I like it so much better! This was also the first time I used green tea, instead of black tea, and all I can say is LOVE!
PS Anyone want a kombucha scoby? My kombucha’s babies are having babies, and I have so many right now! Email me if you do! (email@example.com)
Transplanting my baby plants with my homemade potting soil!
With my real live baby! He loves the sun!
I think they are looking good!
This was the end of a strawberry shake: fresh strawberries, ice, water and little almond milk. Delicious!
My handsome husband!
And finally a toast to a better week ahead. Cheers!
