I made it through day 2!!!!
Ok, first let me give you the stats. I weighed in yesterday at 190. Today I weighed in at 188.8. So, that's a 1.2 pound loss in one day. We'll see what I weigh in at tomorrow, but it seems like things are working.
I woke up this morning with a killer headache (like couldn't get out of bed headache). I'm sure it's my body withdrawing from all the crap I eat. I took some pain killer and once the headache was gone I started my day out with some pomberry coconut water. Hmmm....I had such high hopes for this stuff. I see people at the gym drinking it all the time and I've read such good things about it. I just didn't like it. I was really bummed. However, it didn't go to waste. My 18 month old has been having some nasty tummy troubles and needed some electrolytes. Well, this stuff has them so I thought I'd see if he liked it and he did! Yeah! So, he chugged the stuff while the thought of it made me gag.
So, how did I feel today? I actually felt pretty good! I'm definitely more hungry than I was yesterday, but once I got past the headache this morning I was good to go. I even felt like exercising. I did a new workout dvd that is on instant watch on Netflix. It's Crunch Super Slim Down Pilates and Yoga Blend. I loved it! It was exactly what I needed. About 3 minutes in I thought "this is really easy, I'm not going to get a good workout", but about half way through I was working up a sweat and it was a tough workout. If you're looking for something new to try at home I recommend this one. It's really easy to follow, the instructor gives great cues. It's also just a lot of fun. It's fast paced and won't bore you. Now, it's not the kind of workout I get when I do an hour on the elliptical, but it was hard enough that I thought it was worth it.
After working out I sat down to fold laundry. With 6 of us there's always laundry to fold! I like to watch a movie while I fold clothes. Today I watched "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead." It was AWESOME!! Seriously, loved it. There's a lot of health documentaries out there that I've watched and I always come away feeling slightly depressed and a little hopeless. This was NOT the case with "Fat, Sick, and Nearly Dead." I had a smile on my face and honestly felt hopeful when it was over. It was very well made and not only incredibly informative, but also really entertaining. I highly recommend watching it. In short, it's about a guy who's fat and overweight and ill and he decides to get healthy by changing his diet. What happens to him is amazing, but what happens to the people he meets on his journey is pretty incredible too. Watch it, for real. You won't be disappointed.
