First off, I have decided to ditch the Wii as my method of weighing in. It was giving really wonky readings, and I was trying three times in a row to get a proper weight, or at least one that SEEMED proper. Guess I will have to go low tech and use a regular scale. Darn it.
Ok, food first. Usual breakfast and lunch, and those yummy raw carrots for a snack. I came home hungry, as usual. I decided to treat myself to a bag of these "Preventia" cookies I like. They have high fiber and anti-oxidants...oh, and they are dark chocolate. Mmmm. The bags are pre-portioned, too, so no chance of over-indulging. Jason and I had to go grocery shopping after work, and I made sure to pick up yogurt, grapes, (oy) more carrots and apples. This gives me a few more options when the Snack Monster is lurking about. At the store we picked up a roast chicken for dinner. It comes with two sides and a baguette. We get two meals out of it for $10. Pretty good, eh? We are just so thrifty. Thus, dinner was roast chicken, salad and a bit of bread and macaroni salad. I tried to go easy on the latter two, for obvious reasons. No dessert thus far, and I think I'm ok with that! Oooh progress!
It as really hard to get a workout in tonight. We went shopping right after work, so no time there. I decided to squeeze it in after dinner was digested, so right around House time. I really, really didn't want to work out...but I did. It wasn't a long one, but I am happy I did SOMETHING. That makes a full week of working out every day! Yay me!
Overall I am VERY happy with this week. I feel good, and even more, I feel energetic. I am excited about the prospect of seeing changes in my body and in the way my clothes fit. I don't dread the prospect of wearing shorts and tank tops knowing I will be leaner and fitter by summer! Jason is starting to follow along as well, and he's looking to eat better and exercise more...oooh it's contagious!
I know that my weight measurement might not be bang-on now, with the changeover of weighing method, but I think it's pretty close. I did weigh myself on the regular scale at the start of this whole thing.
Ok, so here it is...
Stats for the day:
