Day -14: Long Cardio

Wait stop. I swear I was JUST on Day Negative 21. This is slightly unreal. You mean to tell me I invested my time and consideration into myself for 7 days??

Haha, well good!

So today I wanted to do the Low-Impact Cardio again but I got caught up in a couple of last minute errands that I had to do after work. One of which was picking up the DVD of me and my friend on Wheel of Fortune 15 years ago (!!!) my dear old Dad got it digitized for me and I was on cloud level 99 all night. So excited I couldn't even get to sleep!

All I did was walk about 2 miles on my way home and sort of just chill out. LOL @ "All i did".


  • Forgot to take my morning pills because I woke up really late and needed to run out the house
  • Culturelle Probiotic (at night!)
  • Magnesium
  • Calcium Gummies and Vitamin C Gummies (notice how I never forget to take these haha)
Ok we need to talk because for lunch today I literally ate curly fries and that's it. I think this is because I didn't have a real breakfast in the morning and by the time it was time for me to do lunch i was like, uh, french fries whatever. I'm noticing a pattern and I'm going to do something about it.

Otherwise I ate Snow Crab Legs because I really wanted the butter - and notice, I didn't take my Iodine today so here we are. Man, I am learning as I go like a freaking boss!

Day -15: Rest Day

And it was on this day I realized that I've stuck to my guns and am really going for it.

I cracked my screen yesterday so I'm only going to be able to post struggle selfies from now until SUNDAY when I get it fixed.

Anyway, today I'm still really sore from walking around and up and down yesterday AND from the Arms stuff on Saturday so I feel good about not doing too much.

Vitamin C Gummies
Kelp supplement (because I'm often times Iron deficient and crave salt, which has iodine!)
New Chapter Women's Multi-Vitamin

I didn't exactly eat much today, and I'd like to discuss why this is a problem. When you (or me, really because I can't speak for you) don't eat at all, your metabolism slows all the way down. And other stuff happens! And for me, I will pretty much starve myself all day and then binge at night. The worst time to binge!

So I'm notating that here so I know that it's not cool and I gotta cut that crap out, hehe :)

Day -16: Lower Body + Big Cardio

Today was a marathon day - well, it was a long day...

I sang two masses at the local Catholic Church, went to a day party for a second, visited my parents, and shot some cutscenes with a friend.

On the way home I was beating myself up because I didn't leave enough time to workout before bed.

Then I realized HOW incredibly active I was that day. At the church, there are these massive flights of stairs. I went up and down them around 5 times that day. By the 5th time, I wasn't so winded anymore!

I also danced for a good amount of time at the day party AND I walked a mile or two on top of all this.

So yes, today was a Lower Body day dang it!

Bagel and Cream cheese with coffee (I know, I know)
And I drank, a BUNCH - but not too much
Fried Shrimp

Ok soo it wasn't a banner day for diet but I will get there!

Thanks for reading!

Day - 17: Upper Body with weights (!)


Something really cool happened today. I was sitting around being lazy because it was Negative infinity degrees outside and all of a sudden around 7pm my body actually WANTED to work out. OMG it hasn't even been that long and I'm slightly creating a habit. I think this experiment is working?

Anyway, I did about 10 minutes with really light weights and I was still pretty sore. I ended with a more Yoga style stretch which was pretty good and reminds me that I need to get serious about practicing again.

Diet today: 
  • Flax Seed Granola Cereal with Cashew Milk 
  • Bone Broth Soup
  • Blistered Shishito Peppers and Roasted Brussel Sprouts (but like too much)
  • A lot of water

Supplements today:
  • New Medicine Multi
  • Liquid Vitamin B-12
  • Gummy Vitamin C and Calcium
  • Magnesium 

thanks for reading!

Day -18: Active Rest + Stretching

I went to the movies today and I did not eat a barrel of popcorn.

I repeat...

This is a big deal for me. Since I started thinking about wellness, I'm already making better choices. Slow and steady wins the race.

I still don't feel up to exercising again and I want to trust this instinct. My knees also kinda hurt.

I did a few stretches upon waking and before bed but that was the most I did.

Supplements today:
New Medicine Multi-Vitamin (morning)
Gummy Vitamin C (morning and evening)
Calcium/Magnesium (before bed)
Collagen Peptide Powder in my tea (before bed)

Thanks for reading!!
