You know it's a good morning when you find yourself dancing to your alarm! I love the fact that iPhones now allow you to set your alarm to your iTunes library. Right now I have my 4:50 am alarm set to NoNo's song "Pumping Blood" because my interpretation of this song 'celebrate life'! If I am lazy and don't get up to work out, my 5:30 alarm is one of the pleasant-but-less-inspiring tones they've installed on the phone. These strategies might be small, but they work sometimes.
I had an awesome dance session today, better than i've had in so so long. I was sweaty and happy and felt thinner. And for the first time in forever, my quad muscles were sore from the deep squats I was able to do (finally!!). I felt like I found a small portion of my mojo and normalcy again.
I know it sounds absurd, but I think the garcinia is working already! I feel like I have melted some of my stomach(s) away and I definitely seeing my shoulders and collarbone peek out more. I need to focus on my upper body more, sticky hot temps will be here before we know it!
Now that the snow is starting to melt, I am thinking about hitting the gym again in the mornings. It would be like a 20- minute window, so I'd be having to do either only a few moves or supersets or droplets. This idea will take more planning so I can make the most of my time there.
I got a new app, think it's called Body Challenge, it helps track measurements and weight. It will be much handier than a bunch of loose papers all over. I am interested to see if my measurements truly have changed, I will likely measure and weigh on Fridays, because I made a "soft start" on Friday.
I am noticing that stuffy sinuses and stiffness both disguise themselves as tiredness, something I will need to remind myself of as I go on. The garcinia makes me thirsty, so some of its effect has a diuretic quality. If you decide to try it, make sure you drink lots of water. No other noticed "side effects". Think I will go up to the 'weight loss' dose tomorrow. Not sure how long I'll continue to take it, if I see a difference it'll be hard to stop. It does seem to be improving my mood. Who can argue with that?!
Today feels pretty awesome. Hope your day does too!
