I really enjoyed going to the support group last night and am looking forward to going again in two months. Unfortunately I just realized that I can’t go next month because I’m flying to Washington DC that day for a work conference. POO!!!!
- Make my home “safe”. I’m having big issues right now with buying foods that I think I can eat “in moderation” and then binging on them. I need to just not buy them, period. So that is my first goal…not allowing the problem food into my home.
- Take my weekends back. Since I started dating Scott, my weekends have been consumed with bonding with the girls, entertaining the girls, giving quality time to the girls. I’ve lost giving myself that one hour of quality time, except for the occasional Saturday training session with Mark. Raising kids is absolutely exhausting work…and I only do it 2-3 days a week. But I need to take those 1-2 hours for myself back on weekend days so that I can bring up the number of days in total I’m working out each week.
- I need to blog at least once a week. I lost ground here. My future step kids, my future husband, my upcoming wedding…it has all been a lot to work into my schedule. Things got dropped. But I need the accountability. I need to post my silly pictures of my workout log for the month, and my lunch box for the day. I need to participate in this process again. So…here we are in June…this is blog number 2. No more of this 1 blog a month crap….it’s time to step it up.
So…just to get things kicked off in the right direction. Today is Wednesday…I have successfully worked out 3 days in a row this week. My weight is down to 180.2, even after dining out at a Thai restaurant and enjoying a very small piece of chocolate cake yesterday. My meal breakdown was like this:
Snack: ½ cup Cottage cheese (14)
Lunch: 3 chicken skewers with Thai Peanut Sauce and one very small slice of chocolate cake (24)
Snack: String cheese (6)
Dinner: Protein Shake and Broccoli Salad (35)
Snack: 4 bites of Scott’s steak taco (8ish?)
Indulgence: Single Reese’s PB Cup
Personally…I think this product is “too good to be true”. I mean, a full size tortilla for only 71 calories, with 17 grams of carb and 12 grams of fiber? Come on…can’t be! I’m waiting to learn that this has been grossly mislabeled. But in the meantime, I’ll enjoy our nightly ritual. The taco consists of the wrap, some carne asada that we buy frozen at walmart, some shredded cheddar cheese and hot sauce. This crap is delicious. I don’t know what my 4-5 bites are costing me exactly…but I save a couple hundred calories for the end of the day to enjoy this with him. For what it’s worth, this is the meat we are using and it’s nutrition info:
