Well, I am on Day 19 , so more than halfway ! On Feb 13th I started no sugar, no alcohol and a minimum of 30 minutes a day of exercise ( even if its yoga, just something) I got a few people from MFP to join me, and even though I do not think all 22 are still doing it, a few are hanging on. They are happy with the changes they have made , as am I. the challenge ends on my birthday, which, will end with cake, and a night out with Scott, which will include drinks of the alcoholic kind. I just felt like it needed to do it. my clothes were not feeling so comfy, and I needed to do this to get myself back in check.
I also started eating MORE... I am eating 1500 calories a day now, with over 35% of my calories coming from protein. and even though it is not my intent, I havent had carbs after my lunch. again, not planned, it just is the way it is. BUT I am not eating low carb, I pack them in there before lunch, trust me!!! lol
I will report on the 16th how my challenge has turned out , It will be good results for sure !
In other news, I had a second steroid injection in my shoulder on Thursday, this time in the front of the shoulder. It feels better already, and I hope it works this time. I have fluid around the top of my bicep tendon, among a few other things, but that is the main source of where the pain is coming from at the moment....
Sorry so long between posts, life has kept me busy!!!
