Week 11...oops make that 12

Just a quickie today. :) Sometimes a quickie can be just as satisfying as a long, drawn out affair, don't you think? 

Yes, so 12 weeks gone...and 23 lbs also gone. I am very very very happy to have lost those pounds, let me tell you! I look forward to the next 20 though. They can get gone anyyyy time now.

I had a bit of a rough day today with cramps that just would not die. Sorry if that's TMI, but hey, it was part of my day. An icky part. Blah. So I did wallow on the couch having a little solo pity party for a while. Then I started to feel bad for not doing anything (damn the inertia), and I vacuumed the carpet and the furniture (cat hair...bane of my existence. She is a black and white cat, but do I ever see black cat hairs? Nooo...not even on white stuff! I think she sheds only the white hair just to spite us) then cleaned up the kitchen and bathroom counters. 

I didn't eat a lot today, which I think is a victory considering how super crapola I was feeling. I ate:

Kashi cereal with last of fresh strawberries (awww)
Whole wheat wrap with fat-free turkey, lettuce, tomato and 2 small slices of low-fat cheddar
Vitatop muffin
Frozen strawberries (all gone now too...booo)
Small serving of smart fiber pasta with fat-free healthy choice veggie-lovers sauce with added chicken, onion, red and green peppers
Small bun with a skim coat of marg.

Something cool to note about my dinner...together with the high fiber (36%) pasta and veggie sauce I got nearly 1/2 my daily fiber from one meal. 

I am having a harder time drinking all my water at home. I just don't think about drinking it as much. I think I did...5 cups today. But, I did have about a cup of milk with my cereal, and a green tea vitamin a little more liquid in me. 

I worked out after dinner...just the usual on the bike. 

And that be all for the day! very exciting. 

Stats for the day: 

Weight: 197

Exercise: 40 min. 

Hmm...that wasn't terribly quick after all.

haha, inertia. it's true.
I feel you on the cat hair. I have two cats, but my dog is the one that's shedding capabilities is really something out of this world. For one thing, she's massive. She's an absolutely massive dog who just so happens to shed terribly all year round and then every few months during a shedding cycle, you can just see the hair falling off of her as she walks - don't even ask about when she shakes or rubs herself on the couch or across your black pant legs!

I do love the dog, though, so I've decided we just need to change everything on our house and all our clothes, to a blondey beige color, to accomodate her.

Madame DeFarge said...

Well done. Hope you feel better soon. Can you come and do my ironing too?

Sorry to hear about the cramps, I always feeling like crawling into a hole on those days.

Yay for the excellent loss though! Seriously, it sounds like you've been doing great, keep up the good work!

Coley: Lol... I love the idea of buying furniture that camouflages pet hair! My sofa is great for that. It's microfiber-y and has these faint lines (almost like corduroy, but flatter) in it, and you can't even SEE the cat hair on it. It's there, but invisible. Cool eh?

Jack Sh*it: Thanks, man...but I still bow down to your 50!

Carlos: Ahh...lady junk...thanks for making me laugh.

MDF: I'll be right over...where do you live? Oh, it would require some sort of international flight, no? Totally worth it for wrinkle-free clothes!

UGWBH: Lol...not there's an abbreviation for ya! Thanks for the sympathy and the encouragement. :)
