We're getting there...

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We're over the hump and hopefully it's clear sailing to the weekend. The weekend couldn't come at a better time. I'm self admittedly really moody this week and I don't know why... You'd think all that exercise I'm doing would increase my endorphins (I'm channeling Elle Woods - "endorphins make you happy"). Oh well, what can you do?

My day was productive... I managed to run errands at lunch and got my stuff to make all of my easter cupcakes and fudge (going to make chocolate butterscotch fudge with tiny m&m's in it! I think the kids will love the rainbow of colours!). In terms of activity... pretty good today! I got on the treadmill for 45min again this morning, then tonight did 1hr of Biggest Loser workout (30min cardio max and 30min power sculpt). Tara - I really think you should buy these next time you're at Costco! Just because I LOVE biggest loser so much and love bob harper... I think that's one of the main reasons I'm totally loving the workout DVD's! It adds a nice variety to the exercise regime... it makes you SWEAT... you don't need a lot of room... I just love it!!! I never thought I would find a workout DVD I could say that about!

Okay, here's what I ate today:
BF - weight control oatmeal (2), yogurt (1)
Lunch - spinach salad with turkey (1), cheese (1), ff italian (0). apple (1). cottage cheese and fruit cup (2). cup of soup (1). light hot chocolate (1)
Snack after work, before cardio workout - flatout bread (1), garden cream cheese (1), turkey (1)
Dinner - spinach, steamed with garlic (0), spicy peas with 1/2c chick peas (2), salmon fillet (3), motts strawberry kiwi unsweetened fruit cup (1), sf chocolate pudding (1)
Snack - allegro cheese (1) melted on ww bread (1)

Last night on BL Bob mentioned the contestants have a cheat night after they weigh in and this helps their metabolism (and their mood - to have this to look forward to). I keep wondering... how much do you think they cheat? do you think it's a free for all? do you think cheating is like having some little 100 calorie something or other? I think they should have shared with us exactly what constitutes cheating!!

I think that the cheat night is probably more significant than a 100 cal. pack! I guess it's hard to know for sure though. I'm having cheat night tonight. Sounds like we're having some cheese ravioli and homemade caesar salad and my favorite wine. Oh and I bought some candy too :)
I'm totally going to have a look at the BL workout DVD. We might be going to Costco this weekend! I was on the bikini bootcamp kick there for a while but I just can't find the motivation lately. Maybe I just need Bob tp get me off my ass!
