The Fall 5% Challenge hasn't even started yet, and already it's doing just what I hoped. My commitment to intentional exercise and creative extras is reSparked. I had to leave the house at 7 this morning--and still got in a 10 min SP video and some wakeup stretches . That was especially good, given that I'd had an insomnia fit in the middle of the night. I finally did get back to sleep, but was nowhere near ready to wake up when the went off at 6.
I'd planned breakfast the night before , remembering to include coffee with half & half between church services. After sleeping so poorly, this was a definitely a two cup morning. I sing in a professional choir and drive across the bay for an 8 AM rehearsal for 9:00 service, followed by 10:30 rehearsal for 11:15 service. I love it, but it's a really long morning. I stuck a small can of low sodium V8
in my choir bag to tide me over till lunch.
After shopping for groceries and food, it was past 2:00 when I got home. I made a nice discovery: 1/2 of a Publix cuban sandwich is 270 calories. And to think I use to snarf down a whole one easily at 540 calories. No wonder the pounds crept and . Yes, I admit I could still finish the whole thing, but--an important word--BUT I chose not to. With my V8, lunch was only 300 cal total. Actually 311. I forgot a couple of baby carrots.
Today's preliminary assignment is to clean out refrigerator and pantry and plan ahead for shopping. I've got a good start on it already. Can't wait for the real thing to begin!
