I decided every morning I am going to pray for God to help me eat what He wants me to and to eat the right amount.
I am starting to see food for what it is. Fuel. I went to the gym this morning and did 9am Body Pump. Gosh I love that class. I was finally not sore from last weeks body pump and then there I was increasing my weights!
It was a tough class. I'm pretty sure My face looked like I was giving birth durning squats. Before I went I ate a quick bowl of oatmeal. When I got home I knew I needed something to help my muscles recover. But the baby was crying and needed to nurse so I grabbed some water and a coffee and a few vanilla wafers. I looked at the vanilla wafers and I thought, "I don't even want these. I just worked so hard and I want to give my body some protein".
Ah ha! I can't beleive it! My brain is changing!
I got a little light headed while nursing Will . I think it was the hard work out and then the baby nursing I needed water and protein. So I made scrambled eggs with kale (used the food processor for the kale. Best invention for veggie haters ever), and cheese. With a piece of organic toast. I am so happy and I feel great.
I really love the Y. I'm so thankful for the good child care they provide. I feel guilty sometimes going but than I know it's good for me to take an hour to myself and it's good for my family to have a healthy wife/mom.
Yesterday was suppose to be an off day but I was craving some cardio. I was still sore in my quads so I decided to swim laps. It was AMAZING. Clean water, beautiful day, and I was able to do 50 laps! I couldn't really believe I did that many. I wanted to go 45 mins and that's how many laps I did in that time.
On Sunday my friend asked me if I have lost weight. She said I looked like I have lost a lot. Wow! Then I posted a photo to Instagram ---> follow me btw cause I post a lot on there :) and she said I look like I've lost weight and wanted to know how much! Whoo hoo! Progress is more than the scale.
I may weigh myself July 1 and be the same number but I won't be the same as I was June 1. I'll be stronger, a little healthier, & have a better relationship with food.
