My Journey to a Healthy me, Day 4

Day 4 is here, and I am feeling better today. Even with there being an earthquake during the night. I finally got out and got a walk in. Will have more on that in tomorrow’s recap.

I am checking my weight daily (even though I know it can really fluctuate), and have been steadily losing weight. I’ll have more on that with a weekly recap blog.

Day 3 recap

Day 3 was a little rough. I was tired and irritable. I mostly blame it on having a not so restful night of sleep.

Mental state

I wasn’t so much having cravings today, but more impulses. I saw some chips, and had that impulse to just want to grab and eat them. Same happened later on at night when I saw some M&Ms. Instant impulses wanted me to grab and eat all the things. I didn’t though. I also was feeling a little hungrier yesterday, but this is probably more with seeing all the junk food, and my mind really wanting me to give into the hunger impulses.

Food:

Here is MyFitnessPal Food Diary. My food seemed fine. I was under 20 net carbs again, So I am continuing the keto process. Had food impulses, but did not give in. Didn’t drink as much water as I should have, but still got quite a bit in.

I did cook more chicken breasts to eat for the week.

Exercise:

No exercise on day 3. It was raining quite a bit, but I never let that stop me in the past. I just didn’t get out there.

Sleep:

12:37am to 8am. I did get up around 4am to go to the bathroom. There was also an Earthquake last night. 4.5 scale. I did wake up, but really only long enough to hear my son ask if we felt it.

I am really enjoying my reading time that I am doing now. Reading, then sleep. I think it is helping me get wound down some, and it gets me to not stare at a screen right up till bedtime.

Small victory of the day:

Not giving into those grab all the food impulses. I was happy to not give in.
