Tamara’s Story - Real KKW Testimony
Before KKW I always knew one major thing about myself. If I don't start my day with a good cup of coffee, time to myself, and a workout, the rest of the day doesn't go that well. It leads to not getting my water in, poor food choices, lack of movement, and total lack of motivation for the rest of the day.
I haven't worked out in 10 days. I've never gone this long since I started on my health journey. I am in the process of moving to a new home, caring for elderly parents, and trying to keep a family business running amidst a flailing economy (thank GOD I'm still working), and I let myself fall to the backside. I have had no refrigerator for a week, no microwave, no oven for a few days, and initially no water when we moved (that was resolved within two days).
So I resorted to take out for several days in a row, KNOWING this would derail me but didn't have the energy to figure this out.
This led to sugar and alcohol creeping back in. Within two days my joint pain was back, my stomach pain was back, I wasn't sleeping and just overall cranky and hard to be around.
As of yesterday I have my refrigerator, I bought a cheap microwave, and my oven is back. Last night for the first time in 8 days I grilled chicken, made rice, and steamed green beans.
It never tasted so good even my husband and 10 yo daughter remarked at how good it feels to eat healthy food, which is a miracle in itself lol. So this morning, I got up, drank my coffee, drank my greens, turned on the Roku and got my workout done. It is amazing to me how quickly we can backslide even when we KNOW WHAT TO DO.
I am so thankful for this community, for the wealth of knowledge at my fingertips, and for knowing how to get back on track.
By the way, I still haven't moved my scale, not sure I'm going too. Thank you Jodi Sheakley-Wright Ocb Pro for teaching me how to eat.
Thank you Heather Marie Unger for teaching me what works for my body. And you guys, 10 days like this is really first world problems. I realize right now how freaking spoiled I actually am.
