Today was weigh in day for My Long Hot Active Summer.
This week's loss: 2.7 pounds!!
WOO HOO!! *does a little happy dance*
IT'S ABOUT DAMN TIME!
Ha ha ha. But really. I haven't had really great numbers recently. So I'm pretty happy about that 2.7 pounds. I didn't get as much exercise in as I wanted. But that's about to change.
See... I mentioned before that I had medical stuff going on. Well, I had started a medication. And it made me hurt all over. Muscles that I didn't even know I had ached. It made my heart pound and all sorts of crap. NOT to mention, it shot my triglycerides through the roof. My last blood test had it at over 300!
So this week, not only was I off the medication, but I had to cut sugar out of my diet. I even cut it out of my coffee! HOLY BEJEEZIES! I WHAT?!?! Yes, that's right. I cut it out of my coffee. It was a harry situation. Really, I was on the verge of hari kari. But if it dropped my triglycerides by 170 points? I'll deal. :)
So that is now one of my goals. Over at LHA, we came up with 4 booster goals to keep. Mine are:
1. To keep the refined sugar out of my diet. Only in my coffee.
2. Get some form of exercise at least 5 days a week.
3. Make sure I get my daily water requirements EVERY DAY.
4. Learn to cook 3 healthy meals. (Anyone have any?!?!?!)
So what are yours? Have an awesome day!
P.S. I put the picture on here because 1) I think it looks cool and 2) you can almost see the movement in the body in this painting. And that's what I need to be doing. Moving my body. Later taters!
