Day 2 sickness… thinking it’s a sinus sickness, because the amount of pressure I feel in my head is like being in a tight box.

Alas, I didn’t get too crazy with food or anything considering I cannot taste a thing!

Almost 3 pounds and we’re halfway through, with a sickness, no working out and brainless thoughts.

I was not hungry AT ALL. Sick = no appetite. Had the worst headache, runny nose, head in a lock. Slept for 2.5 hour

I even napped for 2.5 hours which is UNHEARD OF. I do not nap. So I was really sick.

Weight when started: 130

Today’s Weight: 127.2

2.2 pounds left is goal weight and 5 days left. We got this. But funny because now all I care about is getting well. It’s how it always happens.

  • Lemon, Ginger, Apple Juice (again, these things are like 400 calories) massive amount
  • Mini macro bar – wasn’t hungry but knew I needed something
  • Peppermint Tea
  • Golden Milk – 3 Cups
  • Banana
  • Blueberries
  • Few Mary’s Gone Cracker’s
  • Avocado
  • Dinner: minestrone soup + spinach salad with bacon, tomatoes and hard boiled eggs with balsamic vinegar
  • Loads of water
  • Stopped eating at 5pm, wasn’t hungry and sipped on peppermint tea all night long!

*** sidenote: almost everything I wanted to send 90 Day Immersion clients arrive tomorrow, so packages will be sent out as soon as everything arrives and I type up a little welcome letter.

My favorite thing is sending cards, gifts and surprising people who deserve it!

Yesterday was a complete blur.

I caught my son’s cold and had no cravings for food or anything else for that matter.

My mind was so hazy that I forgot to write down what I ate and drank, but will summarize as best as I can:

  • Lemon, Ginger, Apple Juice
  • Mini Macro Bar
  • Golden Milk from Gaia
  • Smoothie Bowl: banana, blueberries, coconut milk, granola, honey, chia seeds
  • Mary’s Gone Crackers with Avocado + himalayan salt
  • Beet juice
  • Tortilla chips with daiya cheddar cheese and salsa ( I was really craving tortilla soup and this is all I could manage with 10% energy)
  • Peppermint Tea (limitless amounts)
  • Hot lemon water

I stopped eating around 5pm, had no appetite and couldn’t help but douse myself in essential oils to get rid of my migraine. I overdid it on Real Housewives reruns, it was the only thing my brain could handle. It hurt to look at words so reading was out.

I feel like this always happens. When I get really focused and intentional, something tries to throw me off, like this cold. But it won’t throw me off. My food diaries won’t be as glowing as I wished, because you need energy to foof it up, but smoothie bowls and juices are my jam.

No barre today or any sort of movement really, other than up and down the stairs to do laundry and bring my new client gifts to their pile that I’m waiting to send…. but not until everything arrives.

So there you have it! Progress, not perfection is the name of the game.

Once again, what I thought I’d accomplish was much farther off and I blame LACK OF SLEEP and little man running a temp, which means one thing… he only wants Mama.

Which I secretly love more than anything because he’s already a sweetheart super cuddly love bunny, but when he’s sick he sits still and looks into my eyes and it’s the sweetest!

It’s hard to leave… so I didn’t.

Instead of walking, we went for a family bike ride. Thought some fresh air would be healing and it was at least for a while.

I LOVE BIKE RIDES. Always have. Always will.

What I ate:

  • 1 serving of hot cacao from Retreat Drinks
  • 2 pieces of bacon, scrambled eggs and sweet potatoes with pancetta at home
  • beet juice from Gather Co.
  • mini macro bar
  • lemon, ginger, apple juice from Gather Co.
  • homemade smoothie bowl: base: coconut milk, banana and frozen blueberries, blend. Add blueberries, Purely Elizabeth Granola with drizzle of raw honey
  • some of charcuterie tray: Mary’s Gone Crackers, Goat cheese (rare eat), salami, kalamata olives
  • tons of water
we had a buddy come over, so charcuterie plate was made!

Stopped eating at 6:45pm.

Even though this is only day 3, it’s really making me think about what I’m eating and realize how much I need to get to the grocery store.

I also wasn’t that hungry today, more thirsty than anything… hence the juices, cacao and smoothie bowl.

I am way more hungry on days I’m burning lots of calories, but on a family bike ride day, a sick toddler and a mama who got probably 3 hours of sleep last night, this was the best I could do and that’s perfect for me.

My week’s about to pick up again with work and exercise because I scheduled 4 barre classes this week and if the Bodester is feeling better, he’ll want to go on a walk with me.

Weight today: 128

Weight yesterday: 127.2

Weight when I started: 130

See the subtle shifts? Hormonal weight gain and loss within the ounces? I usually weigh 125, but give myself 2 pound up and down grace.

I was the leanest, most illest lady love at 124 with muscle definition and felt like a million bucks and I just don’t feel that at 130. If I did, the number wouldn’t bother me. I’ve found that once I’m in the 130’s, my legs rub together and it bothers me.

Like I wrote in my calendar, “You can Love Your Body and Have Goals for It.”

Could still improve:

  • water intake
  • step count
  • sleep

I’ll also focus on adding in more protein, healthy fats and veggies. Every day is different for me. Almost no day is the same. Some days I want eggs. Some days they smell disgusting and I won’t eat any for months. Some months I juice every single day, then I’ll go a week without one. Sometimes I want a smoothie every day for breakfast, then I don’t want them anymore and I’ll go on a smoothie hiatus.

Mindful and intentional eating doesn’t require a plan, you allow your body to guide you.
