I'm feeling pretty good this morning. I woke up at 6:15 rarin' and ready to go. I was down a pound and a half or so this morning, even though I didn't exercise yesterday. I went out last night and got ingredients for hummus. I probably made 5 lbs. worth -- enough to last us quite a while. I've got to find something better to have it with than flat bread. I don't think it will do me any favors.
I finally juiced all those green vegetables I bought -- Kale, lettuce, parsley, cilantro, Brocolli and ginger. Boy is that stuff disgusting! Blech! But I've got to find a way to get in all my vegetable servings each day. So until I get better about planning meals with vegetables, green juice it is. I chased it with a little Limeade. That cut the taste. A little.
I'm also going to try to do better about my fiber levels. I got Fiber One cereal, and put Fiber Sure in my water this morning. I really don't notice it! So maybe now I can just do that 3 times a day and that way I'll get all my fiber in for the day (for once). Hopefully the hummus will help me get my protien and good fat levels up consistently, and maybe I'll start to see some consistent weight loss.
I've become so aware of the scale. I never used to be that way. But I think it's good for me in a way. It causes me to be VERY conscious of everything I'm putting in my mouth. I can see what works and what doesn't pretty immediately. I'm really going to try and get consistent with my workouts. We'll see if the scale continues to trend in a downward direction.
