Okay, so last week felt like a really good week. I only got to the gym four times which was disappointing, and I had a day where I didn't not eat well, but all-in-all I'm pleased.

Changes I've noticed...
Physical: I still don't physically look different, but I have lost two inches around my waist. I feel tighter everywhere (less jiggly) and I feel SO much stronger. I also was still really sore after my workouts, but it was manageable and not deadly like the first week. I love lifting weights. And Cardio felt amazing this week too, despite having a cough and a cold. Also, no bladder infection this week, so that helps a ton too.
Mental: I did hit a few walls this week. The eating plan I'm on is awesome, but I still had a few moments where I wanted to throw in the towel, and I did on Wednesday. This probably stems from the fact that I didn't get up and work out this morning. I definitely feel like eating better on the days I worked my butt off.
Spiritual: I still feel a great peace and assurance that this is what I'm suppose to be doing. I'm not on a crazy diet scheme where I am watching for instant results. I am EARNING the results which feels lasting and rewarding. I feel a stronger desire to help and lift others.
