Say hello to my old friend, Bob Harper!
So... since my dear friend, Tara, can slam out a confession today... so can I. I wasn't so busy this weekend that I couldn't post... I was ashamed of how quickly I fell off track on the weekend. I finished the soup diet and lost all willpower... I ate everything i wanted to eat all week and then some. I ate fluffernutter sandwiches right before bed each night... I ate chocolate from christmas... popcorn... it was nuts. I got back on track a bit on Sunday but Alex and I went for all you can eat sushi (at Makimono in Pickering)... the soy sauce caused some water retention on the scale this morning (at least I hope it was water retention. It was not pretty). I tried not to eat anything the rest of the day (sushi was at 2pm)... but by 7pm I was hungry so I ate two HEAPING bowls of cereal (corn bran and multi grain cheerios... could be worse). Treadmill this weekend didn't happen.
Today was a new day. I can NOT let it take as long this year as it did last year to get back on track after Christmas... so, this morning I was back on the treadmill for 45min. I went to work and came home at 8:30 and popped in an oldie but goodie... my Biggest Loser cardio max. I actually forgot how I enjoy that workout. I just did the 30min one (level 1)... and I was feeling it. I really do love Bob.
Now, for what I ate today. I'm off the soup diet but trying to stick to the principals of it. I should mention... I recently decided this is the year. 2009 is the year I HAVE to reach goal weight. It's actually not an option not to at this point... for a couple of reasons, which I will spare you at this time.
Here's what i ate:
Breakfast - fruit salad (2), banana (2), ww toast (1), 2 wedges light laughing cow (1)
Lunch: 1c brown rice (4), leftover veggie soup (0), fruit salad (2), yogurt (1)
Snack: snap peas and baby carrots (0)
Dinner: tuna (1), 1tbsp ff miracle whip (0), cheese (1), 3 lettuce leaves to make tuna lettuce wraps (0)
Total (yes, I should have eaten more but I'm doing damage control. I have issues): 15
Water: 6L - working on water retention from yesterday
Tomorrow I work from 9am-8pm. I have already packed lunch AND dinner for tomorrow and the dishes are done... I am trying to ensure I do get on the treadmill in the morning AND hopefully do the BL workout after work again.
Happy Tuesday. I just realized I am going to miss the first half hour of BL tomorrow. That sucks!!
