And Today is the New Beginning!!
So for starters, you can see, neither one of us look happy at taking the pictures. Athena is starting out at 57.8lbs and by her height, that puts her at 19.2 BMI. I will not bore you with the measurements, but as we loose I will let you know how many we loose total.
As for me I am at 211.6lbs and my BMI is 35.8, so yeah thats really bad. I look pregnant in the pics, I am actually really discussed with myself after seeing the pics.
Since we were just starting off yesterday, I let Athena pick the first juice we got to try, she of course picked the Shrek Juice. And actually it was really good. Had some kale, lemon, apple, carrots and spinach in it. If you want recipes for what we try let me know and I
will post them.
Then lunch was coming closer, Athena kept saying, I am hungry, what are we gonna eat, my belly hurts, That monster came out going "FEED ME MOM"...LOL So I gave in, instead of doing juice for lunch like I wanted to do, we had a single serving of Fat Free cottage cheese and a cup of Fat Free Jello. When dinner came around, I had already planned on us having salad, Taco salad to be exact, but for us, I boiled up some chicken, grinded it up and added the taco seasoning to that for our salad and made the bowl out of the small whole wheat tortilla shells.
I was really tired last night, sign of most of the day without caffeine. The cheap juice made by TRU that I got at Walmart on sale over the holiday, worked great, glad I didn't spend a lot on one for now. Sleep was a little rough, still tossing and turning, not sure if that will ever go away.
Today, We had the Digestive detox drink out of the juicer book, beets, carrots, celery, apple and lemon. Ok, I will not lie, it does have very over bearing beet taste, little dirty tasting like some said online, I did wash them before putting them in the juicer but it was still there.
I am refraining from much exercise today, since my knees are hurting. I will however get on the treadmill after dinner while football is on and see how far I can go, putting the knee braces on , hoping for a mile this time. I will get Athena to do her exercise then too. Maybe it will help me sleep better.
As for the project of organizing my computer room, I have slowly and I stress slowly started it. I had ordered a couple or organizing bins from Walmart and they won't be in until like Monday or Tuesday, then I can get in and clear my desk, that is the worst of all. That is was stresses me the most. So later tonight and tomorrow, I am gonna work on the stuff on the floor and near the printer for now. One baby step at a time right. I love your ideas, keep them coming.
Well tata for now, got to go start dinner for everyone else, this sucks too! Until the Wind blows this way again, I will look forward to your comments. One less stress I finally took and posted the pictures.
