Day 5 – Joy

Today’s intention is to enjoy some family time!

Today I feel joy! We enjoyed a great weekend with amazing friends, which reminds me just how fortunate I am. I may have some struggles staying pregnant, but I am blessed with a wonderful set of friends, family, and loved ones. I also feel joy because I feel great! I have been focusing on my diet and fitness since my last miscarriage and it’s really paying off! I started a new eating philosophy called The Perfect 10 Diet — the goal is to balance one’s hormones, which leads to a healthier body and weight loss. You basically swap out all processed crap and sugar and focus on eating organic, real foods including real fats. I have done this for a week, and the results have been fantastic — I feel great = more energy, glowing skin, better sleep, etc and I have lost 5 pounds! YES! This doesn’t just mean weight loss to me — it means that my hormones are finally coming back into equilibrium and I am well on my way to a wonderful IVF cycle in April. Go Team! Even more importantly, I don’t feel deprived — this is definitely not a diet. I am eating real foods and real fats, which means no crazy hunger pains and no crazy food cravings.

I am grateful for my health; wonderful friends, family, and loved ones; my hubby!; vacation on Thursday; and, our upcoming IVF cycle!

I love and accept myself!

    I’m really interested in this eating style. Where did you hear about it?

    • One of my blogging friends blogged about her experience with the diet and I was intrigued! I researched it online and then read the book. The goal is to balance one’s hormones by focusing on eating real foods including healthy fats. I love it 🙂

  3. I’m so excited you’re doing Perfect 10! I’ve had a wonderful experience with it as well! Haven’t been so good during holidays and have gained some of my weight back, but I’m thinking in the last few days (nowish) before I get back, I’ll kick it into high gear again and go back to phase 1. Hopefully it will help me lose some of the vacation weight. I’m glad you’re having good results!

  4. Thanks for introducing me to Perfect 10 — I love it! I am heading out on vacation tonight and am going to follow the principles as much as is possible :). Good luck with losing a few pounds — I am sure you will be successful!
