I am doing it...I am....

So, today I got up and drank a bottle of water (12 oz) and for breakfast I had an egg white omelet (egg whites, red peppers, onions). Cool, even though I wanted to have apple pie. I did my yoga stretches and got to work on the laundry we amassed since Friday and while out of town. It will be interesting to see how I do on this 21 day weight loss challenge since my exercise is moderated because of the fibromyalgia.

I am relegated to Pilates and Yoga stretch exercises for now. I also find that I am not getting good points for sleep because I am not getting enough of it! I need to work on that - I am going to go to bed at least 1/2 hour earlier for the next few nights, consecutively. That might increase my energy. I have fatigue from the Fibro, and I often am up late. Hopefully more water, regular exercise, and earlier bedtime will get me some more sleep points!

For lunch today, I cannot tell a lie, I had a banana and a Clif bar. (I know, for shame), and a huge glass of water. I was trying to get some deadline issues completed.

Here's something I am really proud of, though. This weekend, I had to go out of town for a family emergency. Sometimes, being on the road causes me to make totally bad choices in food and water consumption. I knew I needed to do what was right, not just because of this challenge, but to manage my stress level as well.

I chose all of the right options for eating, I drank water the entire trip (opting for decaf coffee only twice), and I felt alert and unstressed because of that. I got some walking in, because there was no time for anything else.That was a great success!

So, today I need to sit down and plan out my menu for the week, plan my water consumption and more relevant exercise times. I still haven't posted my before picture and I promise to do that this week. It's not a fun photo op.
