I have all but eliminated carbs from my diet, along with any processed foods.
I cannot have more than 40 carbs in a meal and no more than 15 carbs in a snack.
Thank you though!
IquitosARG10: I don't doubt for a minute that it'll be easy. I'm up for the challenge. I'm going to make my life a better one, I just have to sacrifice things that other wouldn't.
gunslinger: Holy crow. I bet that was a SCARY time for you. Thanks oodness it isn't too terribly hostile now.
Today has been a good day all in all. I ate a small, low carb lunch and dinner along with my three snacks. I didn't break my diet!!!
I feel great.
I did about 45 minutes of cardio and found out that I can jog half a mile in 7 minutes. So if I were actually running, I could probably do it in 5 minutes or so, and if I can do a half in 5, I can do a mile in 10! I need to be able to run a mile in 10:50 for my PT qualifications. I'm so glad!!!! Now all I have to do is work on my stamina so I can actually run a full mile.
On a dimmer note, the horse that I've been taking care went back to my sister's today. I've been taking care of him for a few months.
Needless to say, I cried. I didn't necessarily cry because it was him, but that he's probably the last horse that I'll be able to take care of for the next 15-20 years.
I love taking care of horses. Sometimes I like it more than riding. Makes me feel needed because they rely on me. Anyway, I just cried. Broke my heart to see him leave.
One cool thing that him and I had was the way we greeted each other.
I'd always whistle like a Robin and he'd nicker.
Well, he was knickering as they drove away, and I tried my hardest to whistle like a Robin. I got one good whistle in before he was too far to hear me.
I'll most certianly miss that boy. He was a real sweetheart.
