30 Day Challenge: Day 17 05/17/13

I missed yesterday again.  Journaling might actually be the hardest part of this.  Just kidding, I just have a hard time getting on here and adding my thoughts for the day.

I forgot to tell you all that The Baby finally has a name!  As much as I wanted A-meow-lia Pond, we all agreed on Pepper Potts.  She’s doing great.  Full of energy, eating well, doing great with the litter box.  I had to make a little one just for her since she can’t reach the big kid’s box yet.  The two big boxes have lids on them, but this one doesn’t and Gwennie is in kitty poo heaven.  Gross.  I used the lid from a case of paper, so I may take the actual case and construct some kind of covered box with it.  Selina is doing a lot better around Pepper and even kind of plays with her.  Natasha will sniff Pepper and hiss at her.  Pepper moves away, Natasha follows, sniffs and hisses.  And repeat.  Natasha is doing better though.  She wouldn’t even go near her to start with.  Gwennie is an awesome big sister.  She gets a little too rough at times, but for the most part she kind of watches out for Pepper and is very patient with her attempts to play.

She still sleeps a lot.

She still sleeps a lot.

And she loves to snuggle.

And she loves to snuggle.

But still finds time to play with her sister.

But still finds time to play with her sister.

Tomorrow is the Chiefs 5K and I’m ready!  Yesterday I ended up walking a little over 2 miles.  Josh wanted me to come up to the school so we could walk home together.  Of course that means I have to walk up to the school first.  It was nice to have that time to spend with just him.

I also did some yoga and my legs feel much better.  Not as tight as they were.  Tomorrow looks great!

Food Journal:

2 Hard Boiled Eggs

PBJ (I hadn’t gone to the store yet and we were out of anything else.)

Grilled chicken
Green beans
Sweet Potato

I also had a bowl of ice cream and 2 Bud Light Limes.  I’m not sure anyone else is playing along, so I keep finding reasons to cheat. I know that ultimately, this eating Paleo or healthy is up to me and I’m only cheating myself by not following my own rules of the 30 Day Challenge.  I’m also feeling frustrated about not really seeing any change in my size so far.  I know, I know, this isn’t about weight loss, but I was really hoping those last 10 lbs would go away.  Not that they would have already, but I was hoping for a little bit of a change by now.  I remeasured myself a couple days ago and there really was no significant changes.  I just need to keep telling myself that it’s about being healthy, not skinny.  I just have to keep on doing what I know I need to do.

Exercise: Day off!
