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.


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.


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.


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.
