Since the birth of my 3rd baby girl Evie, I have had zero energy. Some days it seemed impossible to do the bare minimum to care for her, our other 2 girls, our home, and my school assignments. Most days seemed like there was a dark energy zapping cloud following me around 24/7. I chalked it up to late nights with the baby, my weight, and an overload of responsibilities.
I realize now that the main energy zapper were the things I was putting into my body... and the lack of movement. I used to drink SO Many Diet Mt. Dew's in one day....too many to even admit to. Some days I would drink nothing but DMD's and other diet sodas. I would do very little exercise if any.
It is wild how less than 2 weeks of eating/drinking the things my body needs how much better I feel. And how much more energy I have. It is awesome! I am tackling projects in our home that have been on our to do list for 1-2 years.
I love Dt. Mt. Dew, but it is not worth it for me to drink more than 1 a day, because I know it will do nothing but slow me down, and I just don't have time for that.
Here is what I ate yesterday 1-10-11:
1 pancake w/ fresh strawberries and fat free whipped cream
2 slices turkey bacon
1 small glass of oj and 8 oz water
1 slice of leftover turkey loaf
1 slice wheat bread
(made a sandwich with it)
side salad with romaine, croutons, and italian dressing
1 water w/ ff cranberry/apple mix
kielbasa with bell peppers and onions (stir fry)
1 cup rice
Devil Dew :)
1 fiber plus bar
P.S. My belly feels/looks a little flatter! :)
