Aside from the occasional muscle twinge, today was a good day two. I had my usual breakkie and lunch, and brought carrots for a snack. Wednesdays are my school's short day, so things went by so fast. I didn't really have time to feel hungry! I ended up eating half the carrots after school while I walked through the mall to my hair appointment (hair looks fab, btw). I was hungry when I got home, so I ate the rest. Dinner was a bit of a worry for me today. Before this whole weight-loss thang, we'd bought cheese tortellini and Alfredo sauce. Eeeeep! So, that's what we had. So to mitigate the calorie overload of this combination, I had a small portion. MUCH smaller than the heaping plate I would normally have! As my nod to veggies (which , dear reader, I really hate) I ate a garden salad and a few more carrots. I had one and a bit pieces of bread. Usually I would scarf three at least!
I have to say, I really hate the "d" word. Yes, dominos. No...lol...DIET. I don't believe in 'em. Nope. Thus, I am trying to apply a lil' portion control to my eating and not eating the same amount as my giant of a man hubby.
Did I tell you my favourite no-guilt dessert? Hmm...I think no. Well, I have a raging sweet tooth that rivals any crack addict's need for, well, crack. I feel very unsatisfied if I don't eat something sweet after dinner. I start getting jittery and look in the cupboards for chocolate things...or I start contemplating making cookies. So, instead of eating chocolate, or cookies, or cake or any of the other delights I crave, I have a low-fat fudge pop! 40 calories. Mmmm. And if I am really jonesin' I will eat two. Crazy, I know.
That leads me to my exercise for the day. Ahh...my old friend exercise. How I love thee...not at all. Yup, that's right folks...she hates vegetables and exercise. Awwwesome. But, I do it. And I did do it today! Yayy!!
No walk due to the aforementioned short day, but once home, I rode my exercise bike for half an hour whilst watching the British series Coupling on my laptop (Thanks Troy!). It was a nice distraction from sore muscles and the lack of desire to be pedaling. I always use free weights when I ride the bike, too. I can burn more calories and tone my upper body, so why not? I really only wanted to do 20 mins, but I decided I wanted to do 30+ minutes of exercise more than I wanted to be a lazy ass. I finished off with a rather tiring session of hula hoop on the Wii (only slightly distracted from hip rotations by husband cursing for not being able to find the phone bill!). Then I weighed myself...and the Wii says I lost 2.5 lbs! Whatever...probably not real weight loss...we shall see!
Overall, it was a pretty easy day to get through. I didn't feel really really hungry, and I exercised longer than I expected. Woo hoo!
I think I'm going to have my fudge pop now. Ohhh yeah.
