Day 48: Home Girl

I decided to do NOTHING today. I know, maybe sounds boring to some of you go-getter types (you know who you are...up at 6 a.m and GO GO GO all day long. And yeah, I know some of you with kids wanna kill me a little). I am a homebody! Probably my downfall when it comes to my activity, but I like staying home sometimes. I watched movies, cleaned a little and tried on a bunch of clothes to see how things are fitting. Of course, I did work out too! Sometimes if I do TOO much on my weekend, I just feel like I didn't have a break. And boy, do I need a break from the insanity that is work this close to the end of school. Um, I'm not trying to cram in all the lessons I can before the last day. Nooo. 

It was fun to try on clothes today. I put on a skirt that's a size 13, and it was only a TEENY bit tight in the waist. And, the shorts I wore two summers ago (at 200 lbs.) are getting BIG and BAGGY. The shorts I bought last summer are just plain huge. I could take off one pair without undoing the button. YES!! All good things. I have a hard time picturing myself 30 lbs. lighter than now. Seems like a lot to lose...but I have been there before, and I wasn't a skinny minnie! 

Oh, I wanted to share my new cereal with y'all. I've recently tried Kashi's Go Lean Crunch, and I LOVE it. It has lots of fiber being all whole-grainy and isn't too high in calories. I had some for breakfast, mmmm. Lunch today was much more sensible than yesterdays madness...chicken soup. Dinner was grilled chicken breast, boiled new potatoes, corn, cucumber and carrots. Very tasty. Trouble was I was still feeling all empty in the tummy area after. This hasn't really happened to me before! I am usually good after dinner. I don't know what evil tricks my tummy is playin' on me, but I don't like it. I had a fudge pop (40 cal), which helped NOT AT ALL. Hmm. I decided to have a yogurt (30 cal.) along with some more of that cereal. good! I feel better now. :) 

I know I probably could have done a lot more today, but I am happy with what I ate, and the bike ride I did. You know, I was just thinking today that I've not over-eaten (you know until I was FULL) or snacked on nasty junk food for a month and a half!! Woah. 

Stats for the day:

Weight: 203 (yesss!!!)

Exercise: 35 min. moderate-high intensity

Hey, that's awsome that the clothes are getting bigger! Mine are just now lose, but not so lose that I can't wear them :( I do have one pair of jeans that hangs on me though!

I love days when we don't have anything to do. It doesn't seem to happen that often though.

Terri: Hey, that's great your clothes are getting looser too! Yay! Isn't it a great feeling?

Jack Sh*t: I hope so...under twohundredland would be great!

I'll have to try out that cereal. You're doing great!

TC said...

Thanks Dina! :) I love it...especially with yogurt. I think it's way lower in calories than granola, which can pack a whallop!

The fact that you haven't stuffed yourself silly - something us chubby peeps have tended to do - is wonderful! And in a month and half! Amaaaazing! That's great about trying on the clothes as a true way to see how you're doing. Omg, a size 13 - make me laugh! I haven't worn a 13 since I was like.. 16! Ha!

TC said...

Coley: Yeah...almost there with the 13...think 14 is still my size though. I'm sure it depends on the brand/cut. I find a lot of clothes in Canada fit SMALL (especially here where we have a very high Asian population), while the U.S. has larger-fitting clothes. I like cross-border shopping, lemme tell ya! :) Oh, I remember my smallest size as a teen...size 11 at age 13.
