Okay, to give credit where it's due... I did make the EFFORT to get on the treadmill this morning. I don't know what it was, but I woke up at 6am ready to go! The problem? My treadmill isn't getting any better... it's getting worse. It sounds like an old creaky mattress now. I had to stop jogging before the neighbours complain about me. I bit the bullet today and called the treadmill fix-it man. It'll cost $115 but they figure they'll be able to fix it. They fixed the motor for me a year or so ago and I know they're good. The good news in it all is Alex is helping me fund the treadmill repairs. I did actually think about jogging outside. The problem is that no matter when it is (before or after work) it would now be in the dark and I'm not entirely comfortable jogging by myself in the dark around here. I'm sure it would be fine... but I'm also sure I'd hear about it from my mom and alex later (they would disapprove no doubt).
I did vow to do the biggest loser workout tonight... but that didn't happen. I'm just too exhausted after work. I think sitting at a desk all day makes me feel MORE tired sometimes.
I managed to stick to my new rule today. No carbs after 4pm and no eating after 7pm. We'll see how long that kick lasts (precautionary addendum: this rule does not apply on Thursday or Fridays and sometimes Saturdays and Sundays! haha!).
Here's what I ate today:
Breakfast: slim fast shake in 1c skim milk (4)
Lunch: salad with 2oz chicken breast (2), skim milk mozzarella (2), veggies (0), 3 tbsp ff italian (0)... 7 strawberries (1)... source exotik yogurt (1)
Dinner concoction: 4oz chicken breast (4), tomato (0), red and yellow peppers (0), part skim mozzarella (2), 2 egg whites (0)... SF jello made with 3 sliced strawberries (0), 1/2c source dessert selections lemon meringue yogurt (2)
Total points: 18 (less today since I ate too many yesterday)
Water: 1.5L (going to get 1L more in tonight!)
So, my dinner started out with just throwing some chicken, tomato and peppers in the frying pan with some PAM... once that was cooked up I decided to do like the Chinese often do and add egg (but decided 2 egg whites was much healthier) and then some cheese (because cheese makes everything better).
Here's a photo before the egg and cheese:
And here's one post egg and cheese:
And just for fun... my SF black cherry jello (from the states) with sliced strawberries:
happy hump day to all!
