The fact that we had way to much going on and I didn't get to the gym all week bummed me out. Then I saw that I had still lost 2 pounds just by sticking with my eating plan. That made me feel better, but I still can't wait to get back into the gym :)
I have been neglecting my blog. I have been so busy at work that I haven't had time and blogger would not pull up on my computer this weekend.
Anyways, I am down another 5 pounds YAY!!! Now the real work comes. I had a splurge night yesterday by going out with friends for $1.00 margaritas and $1.00 tacos. When it came to the tacos I was good, but the drinks not so much. Oh well I will eat good the rest of the week. Plus I had ate good yesterday during the day and so it could have been worse.
and it felt great. I did it in an hour. I am really enjoying this. I need to get into a class or 2 though because I don't want to get bored.
I have kept under my calories this week too. I am trying to just do small changes instead of "dieting". Eating carrots with my sandwiches instead of chips. Spray butter instead of regular butter. egg whites instead of full eggs.
I hope these changes will help me to keep going since I can still have my favorites just in smaller portions or with a healthy side instead of throwing the whole dinner.
We got invited to dinner at my boyfriend's mom's house, so I didn't get to the gym last night. I was actually upset by that. That is good right:) I did eat good and resisted the amazing looking cake she had so it wasn't to bad. I plan on pushing myself a little harder tonight.
Today's eating: B-cantaloupe and grapes l- 6in blt sub on wheat with lite mayo, pretzels, carrots s- sugar free fat free chocolate pudding d-??? this is the first time I haven't planned a dinner in advanced. I will be fine though as I have 800 calories left and no dinner I have cooked recently came close to that.
I said when I reached 190 I would treat myself to lunch (something I don't really do anymore) I didn't expect it to come so soon. I will be fulfilling that today with lunch out with my mom and sisters. Not sure where we are going yet, but I am hoping Panera where I can get the pick to soup and salad.
I love when I get results right away because it gives me the motivation to keep going. I know those are mostly water pounds, but it make me feel better. I honestly feel so much better. I feel lighter and I know it is because I am eating lighter foods.
Today's food/exercise: B-Fruit salad (Cantaloupe, grapes, apples, strawberry, pineapple, and a little orange juice) L-Betty crocker bowl appetite pasta meal and carrots s-pretzels and a sugar free fat free pudding d-Salad with lots of veggies and FF catalina and a baked potato with spray butter (I hope to be at the gym late) S- if needed some cantaloupe.
I made it! Friday we didn't end up going to our friend's house so I was able to go to the gym YAY! I then went home and made my first carb smart spaghetti with sauce. It was pretty good and I didn't even eat all of my serving which is great considering that pasta is my weakness!
Saturday: I didn't go to the gym and I was a little mad at myself, but I did clean my house so that counts for a little exercise. I also ate light until dinner. We went out to Chili's and I can not resist their margaritas. I did get my dinner of the guiltless menu and no dessert and I was full and didn't eat anything the rest of the night.
Sunday: I was starving all day for some reason so I upped my calories to 1800.
All in all I did way better than I expected so that makes me feel good about this.
