I fell off the food wagon slightly this week - by that, I don't mean I was gorging out on pastries, chip and the like, but I wasn't eating at regular times. I would eat breakfast, and then skip my morning snack, and by the time 1130am rolled around for lunch, I was ravenous. So there I was -
This is all part of the learning process for me - experimenting with different foods and figuring out what my band will and will not like...I tested out a couple of Triscuits - and they seemed to go down well - although after about my third one, it too started to get caught. Too dry I think.
I also don't think my band is tight enough...when I saw Dr. Church last, he seemed to think I was doing really well and didn't need much of a fill. I find I am hungry a lot of the time and am even hungry after an hour of eating. I see Dr. Mitchell (Dr. Church's colleague) in the middle of July and will be getting another fill then.
My exercise has been great this week...I trained with Ben - which is always good - and did Kendra's classes...we did her "Tower of Power" on Thursday - for those of you that don't know what that is, it's a series of drop sets - you start at 30 reps on light weight and then go to quite heavy at 10 reps - we managed to do 100 reps each of squats, bent over rows, and chest presses...I got through them all without stopping - I always feel great about myself and feel accomplished after doing that class.
I have some huge changes coming up in the next couple of months - both professionally and personally. I am just going to take it day by day and just plug away and get it done. And as I told Veronica (my therapist) I am going to finish what I started. I am resilient and strong and capable of doing anything that I set my mind to. I can do this...
I AM WORTH IT!
