I woke up yesterday and today and it was FREEZING. it did not help that my depression and anxiety has kicked up into high gear over the past week. I have tried to fight it off with techniques that I have used in the past and I am feeling more like my old self today. I did order some fish oil and vitamin D as that seemed to help before. I have also been doing my superbetter stuff. Mostly I have tried to read and that gives me respite during the times I can focus. The really bad thing about the anxiety is that it makes it REALLY hard to focus  for long periods of time.

I have made sure I eat really clean and no processed foods or anything like that. I know that helps a lot. It did not get as bad as it usually does so that something right there. I posted a pic of me on Facebook with my weight loss so far

The one of me in the red is me today. The one of me in the dress is when I reached my all time highest weight of 330.

I have lost 45 pounds so far. I am hoping that before July I can lose at least 40 more. I am killing it with this mixture of Shakeology and BeachBody. I am doing the 21-day fix and some people have told me they have trouble following it but I feel like this is a way I can live with for the rest of my life. You drink a shake which has superfoods in it and it really does help cut down on the cravings and the 21-day fix comes with these plastic container thingies that you can measure your food in so I always know that I am not overeating. There are also workout videos that come with it. I am STILL doing mostly modified version but I can feel myself getting stronger.

 

I have picked my way through an ARC of  The Lions Mouth A Norwegian Crime Fiction. When I accepted it for review I was all like ANOTHER JO NESBO! Sadly this book is far from Jo Nesbo but I still want to know whodunit damnit so I read on. I am about 55 percent of the way through the book. I WILL FINISH THE DAMN THING TODAY! Have you ever not liked a book but you just had to know how it ends so you keep on reading?

I have felt that my reading and blogging has slacked off in the past month so I signed up for  Beeminder and every time I miss a goal I gotta pay up. I really need to get back in the habit of blogging if I am going to improve my writing. You gotta put in the hours to get proficient.I set it up so that I will read at least 4 books a week and write in this blog every day. I found that if I try to take days off then the habit never sticks. I am always like I will blog tomorrow and even after all these years of blogging it is STILL not an ingrained habit. I read in Better than Before that if you want something to become a habit you should do it every day. That way you will not get decision tiredness and that eliminates the SHOULD I DO IT TODAY OR NOT thinking I always get in my head.
