Breakfast: Oatmeal with brown sugar and blackberries, milk and cinnamon. Green tea.
Lunch: An apple, a banana (I took it this morning), a Nature Valley bar, a PB/honey sandwich, and 2 cookies.
Snack: 2 saltines and a Baby Bell cheese. A piece of bread with 1/2 tablespoon of PB.
Dinner: Pork chops, some scalloped potatoes, salad with Italian, broccoli.
Dessert: 2 cookies and a glass of milk.
Workout: A 20 minute walk, 30 minutes on the elliptical, and hopefully the 30 DS. My internet is being SO slow right now, and the video won’t buffer at all though. :(
I’m not going to wait around for the 30DS for too long. I’m hungry and tempted to eat but trying to avoid it to stick with my week of no after-dinner snacking…so it’d be easier to go to bed!
Breakfast: Oatmeal with blackberries and brown sugar (seriously, my favorite) and pecans and cinnamon and some milk. Delicious. A cup of green tea.
Lunch: Carrots, an apple, one Nature Valley PB bar, a PB/honey sandwich, and pretzels.
Snack: One (small, seriously) oatmeal cookie and then a piece of toast with a little PB/honey.
Dinner: Chili with sour cream, cheese, and saltines. A salad.
I thought I was hungry, I planned out a snack, but I’m not. So, after-dinner snacking lost tonight, go me! I did awesome today. I only had 1 cookie, I didn’t have any bread at dinner…so proud.
Workout: A 40-minute walk with my dog, and I jumped back on the 30DS wagon after falling off for 2 days. I meant to get to the gym, but I skyped with one of my best friends instead…so I planned a run for 6 am tomorrow morning. Yay. Besides, level 2 kicks my freaking ass every day.
Good days make me feel so great.
Breakfast: Oatmeal with brown sugar and a touch of cinnamon, green tea.
Lunch: Half of a peanut butter sandwich, carrots, a fruit snack, and pretzels.
Snack: I made myself a tortilla spread with a tablespoon of peanut butter and kept it in the car for after work….and it was great! I didn’t snack at all once I got home.
Dinner: My mom made peanuty chicken stir-fry in linguini. It was yummy, but I only had one serving. I managed to NOT eat another ton of watermelon today :) but I did have a bit. And some peas.
Snacks: I had a brownie with a tiny bit of milk for dessert, because my little brother and sister made them. And right now I’m eating a bowl of Indigo Morning…Kashi’s twist on Blueberry Morning I think. It’s pretty good, for 100 calories a bowl!
I started using MFP again (oxymoronical, add me!) but I changed their calorie goals so that they’re just 1600 calories a day, which is what I should be eating, and not counting in my exercise. I like not worrying about if I’m tracking my exercise right or overeating the exercise calories, 1600 a day is much more doable! But I love MFP’s setup, it’s much cleaner, so that’s why I’m still using it.
Workout: I went for a 20 minute walk with my dog. I did 30 minutes on ‘strength’ on the elliptical, which was basically a 10 incline, and then it was 45 seconds on 35 resistance, than 15 seconds on 95 resistance. I could feel the burn so hard. I did my 7 weight machines, and then I came home and did day 2 of the 30 DS. Jillian is kicking my ass, and I can feel it!
I’m really interested in starting to do some yoga, especially when I get back to school and have a bit more time in the mornings.
I looked at my school’s classes, but frankly, I don’t have $30/month to do yoga. What are your favorite online videos/etc. for yoga for a beginner…I’d love to have a real teacher and everything but at this point it’s just not practical.
So if you have a favorite online instructor/podcast/tutorial please let me know! I feel like yoga would be a great, calming way to start my day, I just don’t know exactly how to start!
Breakfast: Scrambled eggs with a bit of cheese and milk.
Lunch: A grilled cheese on rye bread, cottage cheese.
Dinner: A hamburger with ketchup, carrots, cottage cheese.
Snacks: Carrots, a bowl of Cheerios, a pint of blueberries (oops!), popcorn.
I did go over calorically today. But all the smart choices I made today…make it seem better. Maybe it isn’t? But I’d rather have overeaten food that makes me feel good about myself than junk food. I resisted so much crap today.
Workout: A 4 mile run, and a 45 minute bike ride.
