Day 8 – Great start to the week!

The Good:  Late tonight I really wanted something sweet, even tempted to have one of my daughters more ripe bananas.  But I just made some tea and kept out of the fridge for the rest of night. woot!

The Great: This afternoon I took my daughter to the park all decked out in my workout clothes.  Usually we go to a small enough park that no ones there and I have done a few of my detox exercises there.  Well this afternoon it was pretty full but I just humbled myself and did them anyways.  And the crazy thing is the amount of energy I had.  I’m usually the mom that sits on the bench listening to her podcast (usually Balanced Bites or The Paleo View!) hoping my daughter is ok, not because I’m worried about her, but because I don’t want to get up.  But this afternoon inbetween my wall pushups and my step ups I was running around with her, even picking her up and holding her during one of my step up rounds.  I feel like I may be coming out on the other end of this detox finally.

The Awesome: I know this detox isn’t about weight loss for everyone, but for me it is.  Getting rid of sugar is slowly fixing my insulin resistance and one way I know that’s work is by losing weight.  Well all that said this morning I weighed in at 229lbs!!!!  That’s 6lbs gone! but wow I haven’t been in the 220’s since I was first pregnant with my daughter who turns 2 next month.  Only 5 more lbs until I’m at my pre-pregnancy weight and officially 50lbs down.  I’m trying hard not to get my hopes up for that to happen next week, so my goal is I just want to be at least that by the end of this detox.
