Down 2.8

Another successful weigh-in this morning!  I’m down -2.8 pounds, which brings me to a total of -8.8 pounds so far 🙂

The trainer at my gym still hasn’t called to schedule a time to do a walk-through so I plan on giving them a call today.  In the meantime, I may start doing the Walk it Out on Wii….the only problem is you use the balance board and I have to hunch a bit so the board feels my steps (not good for the DDD).  Will see.  Otherwise, I do have the Biggest Loser power walk I could do.

Food plan for today:
B: Good Value LF Orange Dreamsicle Yogurt w/ 1/4 c. Grape-nuts (4 pts)
S: Apple w/ 2 Babybel cheese wedges (2 pts)
L: Dev’s Cold Weather Soup (3 pts)
S: Grapefruit (0 pts)
D: Gina’s Asian Chicken Drumsticks w/ salad & ranch dressing (9 pts)
S: Skinny Cow Ice Cream Sandwich (4 pts)

Looking at my points I need to figure a way to add more food to my day.  22 pts is only about 2/3 of my daily allowance

….and so it goes

Day 2 and so far I’m feeling good.  I’m making responsible choices (aka, went to the movie last night and didn’t get popcorn!) and am once again determined to do this.  It shouldn’t be so hard – really.  It’s a lifestyle choice.  But, when I fall off the wagon, I fall hard!  On the plus side, I’ve done this all before and I know I have it in me to succeed.

Played with my Kindle last night.  Read a bit on my Kindle last night….and this morning.  Am dying to go home and read my Kindle a bit more 🙂  It was definitely love at first sight!  I downloaded Where She Went by Gayle Forman and The Spy Who Loved Her by Mel Schroeder — haven’t read them yet because I’m on the 2nd book of the Bride Quartet by Nora Roberts.  I also want to start the Lucky Harbor series by Jill Shalvis – so I have some great reading ahead of me. (PS – My mom doesn’t like the shop feature on my Kindle – she doesn’t think it’s a good idea.  I don’t know why!)

Tonight  J starts her 2nd week of swim lessons.  She’s so fun to watch because she veers between being scared and being a bit over ambitious.  She loves it though, that’s the important thing.

Food today (so far)
B: Key Lime Light Yogurt, Banana
S: Missed it – I get too involved working on my projects. 
L: Salad w/ 1/2 c garbanzo beans, green onion, 1 oz goat cheese, homemade balsamic vinaigrette
S: String cheese & grapefruit
D: ??? Don’t know yet – either a grilled chicken breast w/ broccoli or a chef salad.
S: ???
E: ??? Would love to try out my new Wii Yoga & Pilates workout.  I got the yoga mat & everything!!

Working Out

Last night’s workout was awesome. I started with 30 minutes elliptical, then did 15 minutes stationary bike, followed up by 30 minutes on the cross-trainer. It went well, considering I hadn’t blackened the door of the gym in weeks.

Today, I will be doing the wellness walk at work (if they’re doing it ~ kids are out on school break until labor day), then will do some strength training at home.

6 Inches!

Good morning and Happy Monday! Today’s the day ~ I’m heading back to the gym. Game plan is 30 min elliptical, 30 min crosstrainer, and 15 min bike. We’ll see how I do.

I did go off-plan a few times last week. First was the fair on Wednesday; Second was my best friend’s son’s rehearsal dinner (I’m his honorary auntie); and Third, of course, was best friend’s son’s wedding. Fair food consisted of a corn dog, Indian Taco, a few sips of lemonade, 1/2 of a funnel cake, and a few bites of a teriyaki rice bowl; Rehearsal dinner was pulled pork, coleslaw, beans, frog-eye salad, and cake; Wedding was S&S Meatballs, smoked cocktail weenies, pinwheels, cocktail sandwiches, punch, and chocolate wedding cake ~ then after the wedding a group of us went out for cosmos and white wedding cake.

So yesterday, I went right back on plan and I intend to stay that way, one day at a time.

Took my measurements again last night. The results are as follows:

Chest: 40″
Hips: 41.5″
Belly Button: 41″
Waist: 36.5″
R Arm: 12.5″
R Thigh: 22.5″
R Calf: 14.5″
L Arm: 12.5″
L Thigh: 22.5″
L Calf 15.2″

Which means, I’ve lost a grand total of 6 inches so far!! Go me!

Food Coma

Well, I wasn’t as good at the fair last night as I had planned on being. I wasn’t completely horrible, but I didn’t just have my corndog I allowed for. I had a few sips of my mom’s lemonade, an Indian taco, 1/2 of a funnel cake, a bite of a fried snickers (curiosity got the best of me), and a bite of a fried oreo (verdict is fried snickers are better). Oh wait. And a few bites of Baby J’s terriyaki rice bowl.

Today I’m in a food coma. Oh, and I forgot to take my meds with me to the fair so I didn’t take them until after 11pm last night. So, am feeling very sleepy.

Plan for today:
P1 (WW 24)
B: Broccoli & Cheddar Eggs (4 pts)
S: Red peppers (0 pt)
L: Salad w/ Pico de Galo, 4 oz chicken breast, 1 T caesar dressing, 1 T lf lime vinaigrette (8 pts)
S: English Cucumber (1 pt) (also have 14 cashews on reserve in case I’m really hungry ~ 4 pts)
D: ???
S: 2 SF Lifesaver popsicles ~ (1 pt)
E: 60 min Zumba (-4 pt)
