Blog to Lose

No matter the plan... we all Blog to Lose!

The day started out with a bust! With no food in the house and no lunch bag to pack it in anyway, I just threw some protein bars and a protein shake in a plastic grocery bag. :( Oh, how I miss my lunch bag!! How silly. I know. 

So, I had like 3 protein bars and 1 protein shake and some almonds during the day. Needless to say, I ate dinner before walking to the grocery store. I did not want to eat healthy. I was starving and in a bad mood from work but, thankfully, things ended up fine.  After groceries, I wanted to come back and take another spin class but thought it best to rest my muscles a day before going again. I screwed up last time and overdid it and paid for it. I really love spinning! 

Will try to catch up tomorrow. I'm beat and still have work to do. 

Breakfast: black coffee, 1.5 protein bars (300)

Snack: 100 cal pack almonds (100)

Lunch: protein shake (250) 

Snack: protein bar (140)

Dinner (total guesstimates but not too bad): some broth soup (~150), rice with a fresh banana (weird but good) (~200), grilled fish filet and 5 yummy french fries (~500??)

"Snack" - one chocolate cream cookie something or other - (200)

Total: ~1800-2000 

Exercise: 30 minute brisk walk to store

I know why you went to spin-you figured if you were in a bad mood, a little "eye candy" would be a calorie free way of feeling better. :P  (And hey-a double spin class for you would be a second helping of that candy!) :P

It must be pretty decent--do the instructors go shirtless? :P

Love that you love spinning- nothing better than finding the exercise that is not only a good workout, but that you look forward to doing!

Hey--what did your lunch box look like?  I just spent MONTHS tracking down a replacement for my husband's disgusting embarrassing lunch box.  So I have a pretty darn idea of where you can find what online.  Not sure if the places I know would ship to you--but maybe you could find an international equivalent.

@Angie - Thanks! :) 

@Keem - I didn't go the 2nd day in a row but I wanted to! Oh, how I wish the hunks would take off their shirts! Dream class, man...

@Dee - It really is motivating because I feel like I'm taking my exercise to a new level! 

@AT - I got it at Marshall's. It's one of those boxed shaped ones but cloth and the zipper goes all the way around it. Maroonish with other splashes of color and my container fit perfectly in there! I may have to go online. I've been looking around here and nothing compares. This is driving me mad!! I think it's my lucky lunch box because I was with my awesome sis-in-law in the summer and she picked it up and said 'Look, this is perfect for bringing your food to school to help you stay on track.' (Wailing sound) I miss her. I miss my lunch box. :'( Shit week. 

@Sharon - I felt that weird unbalanced too at first but have one of the instructors help you get the bike adjusted right (like my hot one - I'll fly him over to NZ!) and it will make a world of difference. STILL no lunch bag. Dammit!

The one I got my husband came from the Container Store (don't know if you have one around you).  Yours sounds prettier--but with similar features:  insulated carrier link  It is roughly the same size as a sheet of paper (I guess thickness-wise--more like a ream).  I also saw a similar one on eBags--but it was twice as much $$.  Good luck!
