Under These Conditions

Okay..yes, I’m going to whine…
I can not work(out) under these conditions!!!  
Whoo boy!  It’s only been three days without sugar and grains and my body is feeling it.  I’ve been dragging, but then today just getting myself psyched up to do my 30-minute workout was rough.  
I didn’t want to do it. 
I was dragging.
I miss carbs…even just fruit…or just the tablespoon of honey in my yogurt.  PLEASE!!  
…and then I told myself, “Leah, only two more days.  You can do this.  Just do your best…and don’t forget the one good news….”
The silver lining on this week of “Why-the-heck-did-I-decide-to-do-this???” …..
I haven’t been craving sweets at all.  None.  
I’d like the honey back in my yogurt because plain greek yogurt is GROSS to me, and I love it with honey.  Otherwise, I haven’t wanted ice cream or anything like that.  
I’m told lowering carbs in the diet will do this and for someone with a sweet tooth like me it’s probably a good thing.  So, no sweet cravings give me something positive to look at for this week of no sugar/carbs.
Speaking of the week.  I had originally planned to do this Monday through Friday and then thought I’d tack Saturday on to it.  Well, I’m going back to my original plan of completing it through Friday.  Saturday I’ll still eat carefully, but I will add some whole grains and fruit to the day.  
The addition of whole grains and fruits is basically the only difference from the kick start plan I’m doing this week and the regular plan on Body Revolution.  That’ll be another post for another day. 
So…while I was feeling whiny this morning (and last night as I choked down more plain yogurt and girls ate ice cream) I did get the workout done and I will keep going.  I’m learning new things, I’m pushing out of my comfort zone and I can do this!!!
