Standard

I woke up refreshed and excited, especially since the scale is moving downwards.  I know, I know… I’ve said it myself.  It’s not all about the number, but it is the easiest way to assess results quickly.

WEIGHT ~~ +10.6 (I do not expect to lose it all in 3 weeks)

ENERGY ~~ 👌

EXCITEMENT ~~ 😀

MOOD ~~ 😐

TIP: Eat dessert first.  Your fruit, that is.  It is widely documented and researched that fruit is best digested on an empty stomach.  Try it.

For breakfast I had oatmeal with apples.

My morning snack was 1/2 cup blackberries.

My lunch was a ground turkey patty with garlic and green onions, brown rice, 2 cups of broccoli and 1/2 cup of blackberries.

My afternoon snack was 1/2 cup blackberries (they are on sale).

Dinner was another turkey patty, 1/2 cup cooked brown rice, 2 cups brocolli, and 1/2 cup blackberries.

I did my Just Dance for an hour.  I found a speed mode which switched songs quickly, so I did my assigned exercises after.  This function, though, did not tell me when I met my daily goal.  So I went way over – but that’s okay.  It felt good.

I took a bath, did a coconut oil and egg hair mask and a banana honey face mask.  My feet got a good massage and a foot mask.

I did yoga about an hour after my bath.  Good sleep intended poses.

It was a good day.

I slept very well.
