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.

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.

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.
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 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.
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.
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.

I hope to one day be able to have the endurance to stay on the elliptical for longer than 3 minutes.
My 30day shred came in so I will be starting that Monday.
I felt a little hungry yesterday which I know will happen since I am used to eating so many calories. I am scared to put in my old typical day food and see just how many calories I was eating daily. I have stayed under 1500 for 3 days.

I know it is only day 3, but I already feel invigurated. I have had more energy then I have had in weeks. I am forcing myself to bed at 11 when just last week I was falling asleep on the couch at 8:00. I feel motivated to exercise and I have been finding healthy versions of my favorite recipes so I can still eat what I like, which I think will help me a ton. I am looking at recipes at:
cooking yourself thin on lifetime
Breakfast: 1 egg/1 egg white omlette. I put 1 slice of american cheese, 3 thin sliced deli ham, little bit of tomato and onions. SO GOOD and all for only 196 calories Yum.
Snack 1: Apple with 1tbsp of peanut butter
Lunch: 3 oz of roast beef and salad
Snack 2: Applesauce
Dinner: Saute beef tips with Diced Tomatoes, onions, and garlic, plain rice, and broccoli
Snack 3: 100 calorie pudding or fruit
Exercise: I am hoping to make it to Turbo Kick, but if not then I will do a 2.5 mile walk on the treadmill with an incline and then some time on the elliptical. Plus some weights.

I stayed in my calorie range yesterday despite having some taco dip for snack. That made me :) big to know that if I have a moderate serving I can still have my favorites. Next time I will make it with fat free food also. Then I had leftover roast and potatoes for lunch with a 100 calorie pudding.
B: My oatmeal was missing so I had some applesauce and pretzels. Not the best, but still low calorie.
L: Leftover sauted chicken and rice and a 100 calorie pudding
D: Beef tips, low cal mashed potaotes, and broccoli.
S: Some fruit
Exercise: Walking for an hour or so around the neighborhood.
Anyone who has watched The Biggest Loser knows that Jillian gets results. She is tough, but you will love the results and the work. I ordered 30 day shred and the making the cut book from the library. I am nervous about the 30 day shred, but I am excited to get started at the same time.
I want to do the movie every morning before work so that I am up and motivate, plus I heard that working out in the morning gets your metabolism moving. Then my evenings are free for classes or strength training. I hope to be walking with a friend around the neighborhood which is about 3 miles 3 times a week. Here is my schedule I hope to stick to:
Monday/Wednesday/Friday: movie, 30 min. strength, walking
Tuesday/Thursday: movie, 1 hr turbo kick class or 1 hr cardio, 30 min strength
Saturday: 1 hr cardio or class
Sunday: day off unless we decide to walk
I am also using http://www.sparkpeople.com/ to track my calories, but I don't want to get to crazy about calories because that is where I always mess up and fall off the wagon. Sparkpeople will make me record my food. I will do it here too!
Here is to exercising and eating healthy to make a healthier me :)
