Officially, it's been a week. Things have been pretty good so far. I was very pleased with my weigh in on Saturday. I've been working out at PR Fitness for 9 months and while I know I have gained muscle, the scales haven't budged a bit. First week of BTWG--they BUDGED!!! I was stoked and couldn't believe it. Saturday was kind of a crazy day and Sunday too, so my eating KIND OF went to poop. I didn't eat great. I felt like I snacked a lot on mostly heathly snacks, but felt like I never really had a meal. A big part of that was it was time to go to the grocery. I normally go on Monday's, so Sunday was a hard day to get through. I ended my day by meditating. I missed it on Thursday, but made it a point to do it Sunday night. It was incredible. I remember getting goose bumps at least twice. I have NEVER done anything like that in my life. I didn't have a timer so I was concerned about the time, but I sat down in my closet floor (what a place huh?) and just listened. Of course my mind RACED, but I know over time it will slow down. I know it really isn't prayer time, but I got a few things in as well. Before I knew it I had been sitting for 15 minutes. It felt really good! I feel it even carried over in my day today. I had an awful time at the grocery store with 2 little kids. I would say I have the world record for being in a grocery store the longest: 1 hour 30 minutes! I was miserable. Between 20 minutes at the deli, a bathroom break right in the middle, and loosing a sucker (found it in my coat hat:) it was chaos. However, we made it out alive, I did not blow any gaskets (sp) and my kids had all limbs in tact! I think I will credit my calmness to my mediation last night. I'm looking forward to my next one and hope it brings more peace within me.
I cannot say enough positive things about this program! I hope I can keep it up throughout my life and live a long and healthy life like Jack: May he rest in peace! Until next time:)
