Well, I've been doing Eat to Live, though not regimentally, for almost two weeks and have lost 10lbs. This is including exercising six days a week, which I have actually managed.
Today, I went for a walk around the jogging trail at school and decided to go ahead and run periodically. I figure I ran a total of about 3-4 minutes, that being split up along the trail. Unlike the last time I tried something like this, I didn't feel like God had come down and smacked me upside the body and my breath wasn't as labored. Certainly, I was breathing hard, but not like I was gonna die. :) I could also keep the intervals up longer.
This makes me happy and pretty excited. Right now, I'm craving the salad I made yesterday but never got a chance to eat. :) I think that will become my second breakfast.
I started my period yesterday and was having such a craving for Pringles and dark chocolate. I could not find the Pringles, so I got crackers instead, mostly looking for some starchy sugar there. I also got a bar of Hershey's Special Dark, which is as close to dark chocolate as one can get at a convenience store. I had three little squares and was so done with it. Still have most of the bar left, though I tried to give it away!!
I've also had a butterscotch the last two days, but only one. Used to be that I would grab one candy per session. Now they are all a bit too sweet. I think this is a good thing. :) It is gradual, but my craving for candies and desserts is fading. I still think of them, but not really with the longing that I used to have.
