This is NUTS
I'm already fed up with my efforts this week. I didn't get on the treadmill for 3 days in a row... I ate... I am bloated worse than EVER...
I did get on the treadmill this morning... although I was dragging my feet. I attempted to do the P90X Ab Ripper workout this evening... I didn't make it through the entire 15min... I barely even did half the workout. This could be a good goal for me, make it through the ab workout.
My eating this weekend could be worse... but could be much better. I didn't track what I ate. On Saturday I really didn't eat a lot... I resisted my cupcakes and the quesadillas that were there... ate the veggie egg rolls (baked) that I took and some chicken lasagna. I had some low fat trifle as well... but no candy or chocolates... no alcohol... just crystal light. Sunday was a different story. I didn't eat anything horrible (besides 7 Hershey kisses)... it was just all of the snacking that caught up with me (popcorn, angel food cake). I didn't step on a scale Sunday morning... had I done that, maybe I would have been more on track throughout the day. This is precisely the reason I need to weigh myself every day... the first day I don't, I'm in 'avoidance/denial' mode and go hog-wild in what I eat that day. Today was the first time I stepped on the scale since Saturday... I weighed the exact same. Didn't gain weight on the weekend... but didn't lose any. I am in trouble this week if I don't do serious damage control. It would help if my period would get here already and the bloating could go down. I think tonight I will make another healthy steamed veggie pizza to take in my lunch tomorrow (after I watch Jon and Kate in their new house... HUGE house!).
Here's what I ate today:
Breakfast: fruit salad (2)
Lunch: 4 egg rolls (4), smart ones baked ziti (6)
Dinner: lettuce chicken enchilito (cross between an enchilada and burrito in a lettuce wrap).. lettuce (0), chicken (1), low fat refried beans (1), cheese (1), corn (0), black beans (0), salsa (0)... yogurt (1)... steamed green beans (1)
Total: 17 (low, but I'm compensating for the weekend!)
Tomorrow's plan... treadmill, work, ab workout, biggest loser workout... dinner and BED!!
PS - forgot to mention the angel food cake recipe my mom printed off the weight watchers website. Take an angel food cake mix and just mix in a blueberry pie mix... bake, cool, cut into 24 pieces and it's 2pts per serving! We didn't have blueberry pie mix at mom's so we used raspberry. Next time I would make it with blueberry and I would bake it in muffin tins to have individual cakes...
