Exercise or Bust

Today's Affirmation:
"I take great care of myself by giving my body what it needs!"

Today's email from the Rite Aid Weight Loss plan was about taking vitamins and supplements. They recommend the following: Multi-Vitamin, Essential Fatty Acids, and Possibly Potassium or Sodium. When you are dieting you generally take in more fluids than normal so you can deplete your body of Potassium and Sodium. Low potassium causes fatigue and muscle cramps. I haven't ever really thought about that, the depleting the body of Potassium and Sodium. I am taking a Pre-Natal (suggested by Dr when TTC), I haven't taken Potassium before but so far I think I'm doing good in that regard.

Thoughts: Going to be strong today and avoid guzzling diet coke! Hoping to keep the number low! Wish me luck! Did pretty good with the Diet Cokes even with stressed, as you see my water is higher than normal....I tried to drink water every time I was craving a diet coke, it helped! It was just a MEGA STRESSFUL day at work today, having employee issues I need to deal with tomorrow (they weren't scheduled today or I'd have dealt with it today). YEAH I exercised again! 2 days in a row...that's like a new record for me lately! I tried rationalizing it but I 'forced' myself to do it, and I did longer than I have done in the past in a LONG time. So far 4 days on plan and 2 days exercise. I'm so excited, I'm feeling great, and positive!
