I was determined to workout today because I missed a couple of days. Luckily, I have been successful in cleaning up my nutrition. Initially I was going to give up animal products completely and go down vegan lane, but sushi always gets me… So I am going to be vegetarian then in the future if I want to change it up I can always decide to eliminate the critters.
I started on Monday and I have successfully given up coffee… Although I will admit that this afternoon I was very close to ordering a soy latte with no sweetener, but I went for unsweetened iced tea instead. You should be very proud of me :). Also, I have successfully cut out sugar and sweeteners these past three days. I used to think that it was impossible, but I must have been ready to give it up this time around. I have been drinking water like crazy and my favorite concoction is
1 Sliced lemon + Mint Leaves + Chilled Filtered Water
You should try it! It truly is delish and will wake you up in the morning :).

Today I drank a gallon of water before my boyfriend and I was excited because that was a first! Overall, I am happy with the way things are in my life. I have spent these past two weeks reflecting and starting to focus on my goals I am overjoyed about the fact that I am finally making my health and fitness a priority.
Now I need to wrap my mind around my studies and hopefully start understanding everything.
Enjoy your night, my Dear Darling Friends and I will see you tomorrow!
Love, Joy, and Blessings Always,
