Cashing In.

2:05 p.m. It’s the last day of September, whatever that means to me. 😂

Last night I browsed OkCupid, only to find I was too tired to talk.

I caved and spent real money on Disney Magic Kingdoms. Seven bucks for a Flounder character and a building. On account that I’ve been playing daily for months straight and wanted to support the game a little. ❤️😂 Even if it is owned by Disney. Still happy.

And though my bank account looks sad right now, my SL does not. So that helps. Praise and Thank Lord God/Jesus.

I spent my afternoon sprucing up my store to sell things and even promoting it for the first time in ages. 

Perhaps that’s another daily goal I should start doing.

P.S. I’m writing this outside. In the carport. It’s a nice day. Rick just pulled up to see April. Or do laundry, actually. 

2:11 a.m. Went to rush and get my laundry off the top of the washer so Rick can do his laundry. If he’s washing...I don’t know.

He said he knows it’s mine from the ‘baby socks’ which is an inside joke him and April have about my small feet. 😂

I may as well say it. I am ‘still’ on the healthy track and a full two weeks in now. Still limiting added sugar effectively from my diet. ❤️ And doing very okay with it. 

It’s felt like so much longer though cause it’s hard to go healthy in this world without having to think about it so much! 😬 And Lord knows lately I’ve been thinking of it too much, especially my stomach region. Longing to shrink off the belly fat and be rid of it already.

Especially with my cruise feeling right around the corner at the end of December and me...wanting to embark with fabulousness. 😂 And so my body can handle the shakiness of the cruise better than last time. 😳

I’m thankful for the very speedy progress I’m seeing with my body so far, and I know that is gonna take time.

I can’t go from 190 plus pounds to 135 in two weeks. Much as I wish it worked like that. 

What I CAN do is stick with being healthy as long as possible, and I’ll take whatever weight loss I get with it from there. ❤️

I’m loving eating veggies and fruits and I’m planning to note it if I hit the point where they’re too boring. That is a big challenge of mine, but I’ll cross that bridge when/if I come to it.

I have NOT been weighing or measuring myself. Not yet. I feel like if I obsessed over those numbers on top of all this, it could have negative effects physically and mentally. 

The diet rules...what I hope to be a lifestyle change is simple:

  1. Limit my dairy, meat, refined carbs, and REALLY cut back my sugars. 
  2. I can eat chicken. Portioned. Occasionally. Not fried.
  3. Drink water. Not artificial juices or soda.
  4. Full plates of rice, beans, fruits, and veggies. (Sometimes peanuts) Eat twice a day, lunch and dinner.

As for sugar cravings, they come and go. Especially when I live with two roommates are into the ‘Western Diet.’ 

But I’m in the mindset that if I see sweets now, I have to remind myself that it takes negative effects on the body. Especially huge insulin spikes, which is counterproductive to my current intermittent fasting. That’s enough to change my mind, without feeling deprived or like I’m ‘missing out.’

So yeah. I’m happy.

I’d REALLY like to get my body on a real eating schedule. Lunch at 12:30 and Dinner between the hours of 6-8.

I admit, I’ve been getting stomach pains in the ‘off hours’ and choosing to ignore them for the sake of said fasting plan. (Especially if my roomies are cooking something not particularly healthy and it starts to smell ‘really’ good) But I’m hoping once my body acclimated to that  time table long enough, I’ll get past that. 

On a random note, Rick left a while ago and I have Carlo the cat sleeping in my lap. I’m still typing outside in this nice weather.

It’s also my rest day. I have been biking a lot this week and have been taking the weekend off. I’m hoping to resume regular fitness tomorrow and crank up them results!! 🤗😂

Disclaimer: A nice body isn’t everything.

2:35 p.m. Nice day one minute. Pouring rain the next. Really. Really? 😂

6:11 p.m. Sometimes these timestamps get farther and farther in between. 🤔 Not much new to report. 

Just had my last meal...I hope...for the evening and settling down with some YouTube. I may or may not have plans to just go to bed early. 😂

7:09 p.m. 😴

7:56 p.m. Tried to sleep, wound up in Aprils room.

Just to note. Eating two slices of supreme pizza tonight. Cheat meal. 

I’m gonna start tracking those so I can stay on top of limiting them. 😂 Preferably five max a month from now on.

8:23 p.m. I feel a little more on the okay side that I ate two slices knowing I’ve been eating very healthy the past two weeks.

As long as I keep my junk food in check, I think allowing something like that once in a while will be okay..though I do hope it’s not likely to cause some sugar-overloaded relapse. 😳

10:44 p.m. I forgot the downside to junk food on my period. It gives my cramps fuel to exist. 😑 I was so close to avoiding them this month. Sigh.

Been playing on Twitter..slowly. I need to go to bed already. 😂

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
