I’m 31 days into this and experienced some great moments and few setbacks. For the good moments: found out what foods puff me up and make my joints hurt; got back into yoga; started working out in small steps (and I’m getting stronger each week); lost weight (fast at first, but than it slowed down to 2 lb per week, I’m ok with that); I feel more productive after this first month. Now for the setbacks: few days I didn’t have enough sleep and it messed with my organization, fitness and gave me cravings for carbs! I can’t believe how much sleep deprivation can mess with my will power. I would get up, wishing I can just go back to sleep. My morning workout routine will be neglected, because “I just can’t” reason, I would keep up with healthy breakfast, lunch, but by the time dinner came around I was sooo drained that I would stand in the kitchen and attack all food that was not hidden (especially carbs).
For the past two nights, I got my 8 hrs of sleep. My body is still adjusting from the zombie state, but I’m not giving up. Ok, it’s time to do my yoga. Stay strong and don’t give up on your journey to a healthier you, even if you do a pit stop once in a while. 🙃
