So, this week I struggled to get all my calories in. It was so easy to consume 1700 calories when I was eating junk food. Now that I'm eating 1700 calories/day of good, "clean" food it sometimes feels that I'm eating non-stop.
I can honestly say that I am never hungry. I've been very satisfied and have not struggled too badly with cravings. I did want something sweet last night and ended up having half a grapefruit and that seemed to suffice.
I am really enjoying the Turbulence Training workouts. I had been doing the Intermediate Level Turbulence Training for Women workout but moved to the Advanced version on January 6.
Here's a peek at what my exercise program looked like this past week:
My legs have been especially sore, but sore in a good way. I know my body is responding and it has really felt good. I love the Turbulence Training workouts. They enable me to fit in a great workout into my already hectic schedule.
I have already seen a loss of 5 lbs, but more importantly I feel good. I haven't felt bloated with the exception of a day where I accidentally ended up with a little too much sodium in my diet. Susan helped me over that hurdle.
I'm hopeful that I am on the right track with this journey and to better health. I'm feeling good about it.
Also, thanks for all the kind comments and encouragement!! It really does make a difference.
