I know, I know. I haven't blogged my fitness progress. I've been
distracted by having my purse stolen and being on national television.
On the stress chart, I'm right up there! But I have been doing well
since I started on Monday. When distractions keep you from exercising
and eating right, just persevere!
What's going well:
first thing in the morning. I have gone back to my strategy of
immediately popping out of bed when my alarm goes off. I stand up
before I'm fully awake and within a minute I am fine. I know this is

get next week planned on Gyminee so tracking is easy.
fruit to earlier in the day. This was my plan using www.tomvenuto.com's
book Feed the Muscle, Burn the Fat, but since I cannot eat any other
carbs besides veggies, it's extremely difficult to do. I'm not going to
worry about it as I think I can meet my goal without it.
to the gym to do lower body. I don't plan to have my purse stolen this
time. The good thing is I got a really cute purse to replace it. LOL
