Look what arrived today!
That’s right! I’m starting at the gym! I managed to get an orientation session tomorrow even! The gym I plan on going to the most isn’t able to offer me one until next week (after I missed it the other day) but I didn’t want to wait that long. I contemplated not having an orientation session at all, but decided I want to start off on the right foot and want to know my way around… so, I called around to different locations and low and behold – tomorrow night is orientation! have I mentioned I’m nervous? My last gym experience (about 7 years ago) was NOT positive.
Today started out with a ‘naner wrap (well, AFTER a wheatgrass in POM shot of course). Flatout wrap (1), 1tbsp natural PB (2), 1 mashed banana (2)… and about 1tbsp of fibre 1 for crunch. Instead of leaving the banana whole, I mashed it up today. LOVED IT! It made such a difference. I loved it gooey!
I knew I had to go to an afternoon luncheon/meeting and I didn’t want to over indulge on food, so I had a snack before I left for the luncheon. I had 3/4c ff vanilla yogurt (2), 1/2tbsp oreo crumbs (1) and a little bit of fibre 1 to make it more filling (0)
Once we got to the venue for the luncheon there were fruit cocktail/punch drinks being served – I passed on them! I stuck to water! There were also appetizers consisting of fried samosas, deep fried shrimp and different meats in phyllo pastry. I managed to AVOID all of them… despite how yummy they looked. I even had to finally step away from everyone so I could avoid temptation… I went and sat at our table with my water.
Lunch was chicken (3), wild rice (3) and veggies (0)… also a salad with a drizzle of some dressing (2) and some goat cheese – YUM (3).
Dessert came and it was CHEESECAKE. Did you know I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE cheesecake? I ate about 2/3 of it and decided I should NOT eat any more (it was a small square… maybe 4 square inches). In order to prevent myself from polishing it off, you know what I did?
I POURED SALT ON IT!
Later I came home and decided I better have a low point dinner. Salad with 1/2c ff cottage cheese (1) and an egg white (0)… among other veggies. Holy hannah was this a rocking salad!
And, I leave you with a couple of pictures of my hair… not very good pictures, but you get the idea anyway! It held up okay in the rain today.
And a picture from the front… but you really can’t tell from the front how long it is…
