I can't believe I'm 14 days into the 24 day challenge. It feels great to be accomplishing something and sticking to it. I really needed this right now. To accomplish something and stick to my guns, it feels great. I didn't get much sleep last night. I have been having a hard time falling asleep. Some of the pills have caffeine and so today I tried not having those pills at dinner and lunch instead. So far so good. I worked late so writing this now isn't surprising.
Since I didn't sleep that well, I choose to "sleep in". I decided to save my challenges for in between my jobs since I worked in the morning for the candy store and in the evening for the grocery store. I got home from the candy store and wanted to collapse. But, I didn't. I changed and did my challenges. I felt so much better and more energized for doing them.
I am super impressed with myself. I made it through all this & still went to work my second job:
- 200 sec Plank (I shifted from elbows to hands to sides, but plank all the way through)
- 150 sec Push Ups (sets of 10 at a time)
- 150 sec Tricep Dips (sets of 10)
- 65 Squats
- 45 Bridges
- 50 Lunges
- 125 sec Curtsey Lunges
- 125 sec Sumo Squats
- 125 sec Box Jumps
It was a huge feeling of accomplishment. I can't believe that I've made it through this far. I wanted to not do them today, but then I pushed through realizing in 8 days I will have completed my 30-day challenges. I have yet to actually finish any, so this is huge.
I think my eating is going well. I'm feeling good. Sticking to the track. Getting adjusted to the new set of pills and timings. Eating every two hours, as I keep saying, makes things so much better. I am feeling like my love handles are slimming down, which is good. I'm excited to see what the difference in the before and after photos will be. Wish I had taken measurements around my love handles. Oh well.
Ate my "spaghetti" carbonara for lunch. Doesn't look pretty. No food ever looks as pretty as its glamour shots. I did get to train making chocolate bars again, which was awesome! I managed not to eat any chocolate again too! Ok, I'm fading. Time to crash.
