Thank you to everyone who checked out my Body for Life before-and-after photos and thank you especially to anyone who told me they were inspired to embark on their own Body for Life journey. Seeing others succeed is the most satisfying reward for me!
I have taken a week off from eating and exercising the Body for Life way and I’m really glad I did–perhaps not for the reason you think! I got a chance to remember how bloated and fat and blah I felt! One of the really big changes I made doing BFL that I didn’t mention in last week’s post was drinking 10-11 glasses of water a day. I wasn’t doing that this week and I woke up in the morning dry as the desert. It wasn’t a good feeling. This week I got my food cravings out of the way. I made SCD-compliant blueberry pie, lemon freeze, lots of crepes, and Avalanche ice cream. I can’t say enough wonderful things about my new Everyday Grain-Free Gourmet cookbook by Jodi Bager and Jenny Lass. If I could kiss these ladies, I would!! Their recipes are certainly a gift. BUT, I am ready to eat less fat and sugar than I’ve been consuming and enjoy that just one day a week.
I am excited to start using Gyminee on my Iphone to track my workouts. I always have my IPhone with me to listen to music anyway, so recording my weights and repetitions on it will be very convenient–I hope! I’ll let you know what I think. I also downloaded Interval Timer for the IPhone. I don’t know how useful it will be to time my rest periods between weight lifting sets, but it will be great for times when I am walking/running for cardio in the neighborhood.
If you’ve been taking a break from any kind of routine that really works for you, why don’t you join me in returning to it this week? If you join Gyminee, I’d be honored to have you for a GymBuddy. My name is melphd.
