Day 4... Good news!

Today is day four of my low-carb/no sugar re-start and I'm already down almost 7 lbs. I wish I could say it's been easy so far, but I'd be LYING through my teeth. I want comfort food in the worst way.

My stress level is through the roof. New responsibilities at work are proving to be very overwhelming for me. I feel like no matter how much I work I just can't get caught up to where I need to be. I'm trying to stay positive but it's hard. 

I just want to eat. Lots of sugar and candy and cake and carbs. 

But I know I'd be miserable. And I'd keep getting bigger and bigger.

So I must stay on the course that I've chosen. Because at the end of the day, it's the right one for me. I know that time will make it better, and that hopefully in a week or so I'll feel much better.

I did get SOME great news yesterday. My physical therapist has cleared me to exercise again! I'm allowed to do the elliptical and some jogging intervals as long as I can do so without pain. She really made me do a lot of work yesterday with lower body weights and she said my resistance level is really good. She wants to see how adding exercise makes my knee feel. 

I have to say I'm really happy to get back to working out... I just have to get back into a routine with it. I've got 10,000 things going on in the evening so making time will be a must. But I will. Because I need desperately to get back to where I was so I can feel successful again.

I've also made another big investment to make sure that I stay on track... I have ordered a food plan from a company called Personal Trainer Food. It's not processed food... real food that includes protein and veggies. It's actually to help folks like me establish good eating routines again. It's an investment in good health and I'm excited about it. Meal prep without the prep!

Check it out, and use this link if you order (please!)

Thank for all the words of support. I'm feeling kind of low right now, but I'm very hopeful that I'll be back on the right track sooner than later. I'm so ready to make some progress again!
