Monday Weigh in

I am still adjusting the format on how I am going to be posting these weight ins, so if you can bear with me while I figure what I like the best. :) I think I might start taking some pictures of myself as well.... eeks.

Jan 23rd-Jan 29th

weight loss this week: -1.5!

Total weight loss: -2 lbs

Average: 1 lbs/week

Exercise- I walked twice for about 20 minutes each time. Definitely not what I wanted, but a 200%improvement over last week! I have been working my tail off at work and been doing lots of overtime, so when I am home, which seems to be never I definitely don't want to do anything! This upcoming week is going to be a tough one too, but after that I am thinking things will calm down quite a bit.

Juicing- I juiced my regular carots and zucchini and pear 2 or 3 times this week. And twice I blended banana,strawberries,blueberries and spinach. I hope that blending those things help my body just as much as juicing does, because I really enjoyed the break from my "normal" juicing.

My pills- I have been a tiny bit more consistent compared to last week, but I definitely have a long way to go to actually become good at taking them!

update on my cycle status-  You need to totally skip over this secion if you aren't interested in my reproductive organs and the situation on them. That is your warning. (My husband feels I have tramatized my readers through these updates) I am on cycle day 17 today, no ovulation. Last month I ovulated on day 27 or 28, butI blamed such a late ovulation due to inconsistancy in juicing. I feel I have been much more consistant on my juicing this month. I am curious to see what will happen, and if i will ovulate earlier, I thought maybe I would ovulate this past weekend, but I was wrong. So much for hoping for a 28-32 day cycle! I honestly still am ecstatic that I am even having cycles! I really am! It is a miracle from God! And I am loving it! I feel a little more normal. :)

overall- I am getting more used to ignoring the hungry feeling that I get on the days that I eat the amount of calories I am supposed to.I am really wanting to this, and am feeling good that I accomplished this weeks goal by losing 1.5 lbs and still eating bad twice this week!! I tried to make up for the bad eating the next day, and it really seemed to work!! I am so grateful for that! I can't wait to see what this week brings! I hope another 1 lbs weight loss! I am so excited to be going down on the scale!! This really was awesome feeling!
