Sorry I missed yesterday's blog. I had to work early in the am on a reshoot for a movie I filmed 4 years ago! I know, it's a crazy business and sometimes movies will sit on a shelf unfinished because something about it wasn't quite right. Filmmakers then get busy working on other projects and well... it can take 4 years to get everyone together again to rewrite and reshoot! I'll keep you updated on its release date once I know.
Today, week 1 is finished! I'm definitely feeling a whole lot better than I did 7 days ago and I'm down 5 pounds. :) I expected that since the first 5 days I was on a juice cleanse. Of course I'd lose weight not eating solids and giving my body a detox. It was the jumpstart I was looking for and helped me eat clean meals the last two days without wanting junky foods. I also know a few of those pounds may creep back on, but praying that I'll continue to make good and healthy choices, not allowing my "cravings" to get the best of me. I must exercise my resistance muscle to saying "no". Especially since it's that wonderful time of the month! :) Chocolate...can you hear me calling your name?!
Yesterday I drank a 12 oz fruit smoothy for breakfast, had a small turkey salad with tomato, cucumbers and peppers created out of 4 subway sandwiches (which they provided on set for lunch). I basically scrapped the bread and cheese, snacked on 2 apples, a banana, a handful of almonds and dinner... well, time got the best of me. I know, not very healthy to skip it, I didn't intend to, but worked until 7pm, had to pick up Natasha an hour away at 8 and got home at 9. We stopped for frozen yogurt on the way home and I got a small with almonds on top. I munched on a handful of strawberries Val cut up and stored in the fridge and I hit my pillow by 9:30.
I haven't really worked out this week, but it starts this morning. I'm off with Val and the kids to run on the beach and do some exercises. I'll fill you in tomorrow. Also, after talking to several girlfriends, I was convinced to order Tracy Anderson's Metamorphosis workout videos. I can't wait to get them this week! Maybe you want to start them together with me?
Have an awesome day! Stay strong, stay in the word of God and make good choices!
