I have been doing well with my self imposed 30 Day Challenge, even though its only day 5. I have not fallen victim of chocolate. Maybe after 30 days I will not crave it like I did. I've been eating more fruits & veggies. For my sweet tooth I allow for a Cliff Bar as long as my daily calorie intake is reasonable. It is tough to get in whole grains. So far the only one I am eating is brown rice. I am trying to decide to add to the 30 day…Continue
Today was the second day of my training class and day 18 of Whole30.
I drank a smoothie for breakfast on the hour ride to the training site and remembered to pack my lunch.
As I mentioned yesterday it was a nutrition class .. actually a "how to teach nutrition" class that I'm suppose to take back and use with our Managers at our schools. One of the exercises they did with us today was to give us potato chips and hershey kisses. First they had everyone take a chip and smell…Continue
So... on Sunday my daily routine was completely switched up... so I'm gonna work hard to get back to where I started...
I started my research program with 11 other wonderful math/cs/engineering folks which threw me off center. Sunday, I did well with eating but I didn't exercise.
Monday, I did well with breakfast and dinner, but overate at lunch and also didn't exercise. :(
Today, I did well with breakfast but overate at lunch...
But I am definitely going…Continue
I did day 25 workout this morning and my little one did it with me. She is so darn cute! I did the seated calf raises with her on my lap, we both got a giggle out of it. I plan to do day 26 tonight, even though this is my late night at work, because I'm just really determined to start week 5 tomorrow which puts me back on schedule (since I took my rest days over the weekend).
I can't believe we are just about a week and a half away from your vacation! I'm so excited, but a…Continue
Just past the 1/2 way mark of Whole30. It seems to be getting a little easier ... well somewhat. I'm starting to miss certain things more than I did at first. Like coffee. Since I don't drink coffee black and I can't have creamer ... I just cut it out all together.
Food wise was awkward today. Breakfast was normal. I missed lunch altogether --- not on purpose. I had a training class that started at 12:00 today but it was an hour away. I thought I'd be able to grab something…Continue
Tomorrow is WW weigh-in. From what I am seeing on the home scale, the small weight gain I had last week should be gone.
Today was a very busy activity day....I figure about 5 hours of outside type work, from hauling and spreading mulch to helping hubby put all the lumber for our addition into the garage.
Eating over the past few days was ok, by tracking everything over the last few weeks I'm beginning to notice I eat way too many breads & meats. So, when…Continue
I have done well so far with my 30 Day Challenge. No chocolate at all. I will have a cliff bar or fig newtons in I need a treat, but chocolate is off limits for the next 28 days! I've made good choices and I feel really good. Maybe sugar is not so great for moods. Today was was mostly wholesome foods from the banana w/tablespoon of peanutbutter for breakfast to my homemade 3 bean salad I made from scratch for lunch. The snacks were cherries,…Continue
Well, a tiny gain this week of 0.2 pounds. And I am quite alright with that. Sure, I hate to see the scale going in the wrong direction, but I also know that it could have been WAY worse this week. For example, in the past my week would have looked like this:
Tues: Burger and fries at Red Robin
Fri: every last bite of my Tre Formaggi at Vincenzos, at least 2 rolls, salad, plus frozen yogurt
Saturday: baby shower food--french toast casserole, sausage/egg casserole,…Continue
