OMG I feel SOOO Much Better!!!

So the decision to be "nutritionally" selfish has paid off in less than 24 hours - my body released almost 5 pounds of water weight between yesterday's weight and todays! Holy cow!! My body feels great!!! I went from 179ish yesterday morning to 174.6 this morning! EEK!! That's amazing!

I kept everything vegan and only ate when I was hungry. I took in 32g of Fiber, drank a ton of fluids and had 2 great workouts yesterday - all helped in the release of all that yucky from my system I'm sure. The hubby and I had another fabulous kickboxing workout and I had a great Zumba class. The SlipOns came in and they REALLY helped my joints feel better during class! I'm sold on them!!! I'm looking forward to trying the other ones at class tonight!!

I'm working a half day today (woot!) so I only have about 2 more hours of work! I'm planning on picking up a stash of Larabars at Whole Foods then spending the day with one of my good friends - I'm definitely looking forward to it! Hopefully things will continue on a downward trend with my weight - it felt awesome to drop those 4 pounds from yesterday & my body feels great!! I like not feeling fat & squishy!!! haha!

Today's Self Discovery Topic is - Someone you didn’t want to let go, but just drifted

This has happened with a few good friends of mine. Lives change and develop at different rates, and sometimes people just don't find ways to keep in touch anymore. With the best friends I've made, it doesn't matter how long we go without talking - we just pick right back up. However, with some others it just seems awkward and forced when we try to hang out as it seems like we don't have a lot in common anymore. Its just the way the world works - everyone changes, but they don't always change in the same way. I might not have wanted to let go of those friendships - but its just the way things evolved.


  1. Sounds like a great day ahead!!
    Yay for kicking out the water weight!!
    I've also had friends that have drifted away.

  2. Wow, great job on the system cleanup! 5 pound drop in one day?! Sweet! I think I am going to have to put that idea to the test as well. I am going to try doing it for a day or two and see if anything happens.

  3. Hey guys - thanks for the comments! YOUNGWISDOM426 - when I initially went vegan, it took me almost 2 weeks to notice any kind of huge water drop, so a day or two might not be enough for you. If you're curious, go back to my blogs from mid-February and check in on the Vegan Investigation. All my daily updates are there!
