Day 3 Motivation: I have so many pants I don't fit into! Ate: homemade flax milk mocha (yes, I eat mostly the same things all week), PB&J sandwich, 60oz of tea, 12oz water, raw chocolate, hummus with pita chips, Chipotle sofritas bowl (just beans & sofritas), tortilla chips, and a coke.
Moved: I did these two Yoga videos, but it was touch-and-go with the second one about 3/4 of the way through. My abs couldn't handle it!
Felt: Tired! Again! I don't know what's up with me this week.
Etc: My weight's gone down 3lbs from Tuesday, but I doubt it's anything but coincidence/water weight.

Day 5 - Sunday Motivation: Doing the arm toning exercises last week was a floppy mess~ Ate: (poorly) hot dogs, flax milk mocha, cashew cheese and seeded crackers, almond milk strawberry mousse, multi-green kombucha
Moved: I stood and walked some at my volunteer shift, and then took a leisurely walk home
Felt: good! I mean, fat, but still good!
Etc: I regret the hot dogs and the coke and chips over the last few days. I KNOW that eating junk food makes me crave more junk food, but I did it anyway :/
