I am home sick today. Does anyone else feel tremendous guilt calling in sick? I do… but today I didn’t. I needed a rest day.
After some non-food time this morning, my stomach eventually appeared ready for food.
I started out with a wheat grass in POM shot, then a Weight Watcher thin (1), 1tbsp Crofter’s North America (1) – I have decided North America is my favourite, followed closely by Europe. I also put 1/2c ff cottage cheese on top (1). I am in love with cottage cheese this week. I also enjoyed some sunshine in a bowl in the form of pineapple, strawberries and blueberries (1)
When I was preparing my toast with jam and cottage cheese I was tempted to ‘fudge’ my jam. I wanted to add more than 1 tbsp to it. I had a HEAPING spoonful of jam, but then decided I must be honest with myself… so I took my knife and scraped off the excess jam. I then proceeded to pat myself on the back.
*Are you honest with yourself when you are measuring and counting (points/calories)?*
I had a snack of vanilla chobani (2) and PB cereal stuff (1). This cereal is ADDICTIVE. I normally buy peanut butter puffins but to be honest the cereal is so big it scratches my mouth. This stuff is for kids and smaller… and perfect!
Lunch was a flatout wrap (1), an HONEST 1tbsp hummus (1), weighed 30g light old cheddar (2) and spinach (0). It was followed by a protein smores bar (3)
I snacked on only a few pieces of watermelon (0)…
Dinner was 1c whole wheat pasta (3), a couple of spoonfuls of ff cottage cheese (0) and 30g light old cheddar (2)… all melted up and goey…
Thanks to PMS I am having serious sweets cravings. I think I managed to take care of it by having a heaping spoonful of natural PB (3), 2tbsp marshmallow fluff (1) and 1tbsp chocolate chips (2)
THE. KITCHEN. IS. SO. CLOSED!
I have managed 4L of water today. Crazy. My body has definitely let me know I didn’t drink enough water yesterday.
I also came across something new at the grocery store the other day…
I’ve never come across tempeh in my grocery stores… and the other day I came across it and it was on SPECIAL! I will be trying it tomorrow or Friday and will let you know if I like it!
I found out my gym membership is in the mail. Woohoo. I really can’t wait to get started with more exercise. I’m going to be honest though, I’m scared of the gym. I joined a gym about 7 or 8 years ago and signed a contract for a full year (of gym AND personal training)… I quit going after a month. I get intimidated. I walk in and think everyone is wondering what the fat girl is doing there. I will just have to get over that fear!!
Did anyone else have a fear of the gym at one point in their life? How did you get over it?
I’m off like a prom dress… I think I feel like having straight hair for a couple of days, so it’s time to devote an hour or two to wash/blow dry/straighten it. So much work!
Wish me luck for weigh in tomorrow. I’m pretty sure I’m going to be up… not for lack of being accountable this week though!
