Finally the weekend!

Happy sort of Friday! I love 3 day weekends and the extra time at home.
I’ve been watching what I eat for nearly a week now. I’m finding that is where my problem is. I’m either eating more than I should, or less. I’m having to ‘re-learn’ how to feed myself properly. I don’t nibble or snack, it’s all about what I have at my meals.
Typically I do not have breakfast, I don’t have the time or the energy to wake up and cook, or even have a bowl of cereal. I would prefer to stay in bed for that 10-15 min’s that are just so precious to me. I have my Advocare Spark which is a vitamin drink and gives me enough caffeine to last the day.
About 10 I’ll typically have a yogurt or protein bar then lunch about noon. Lunch would be Mo’s, Quizno’s, Café Carolina or any other favorite in down town Raleigh. Later in the day I’d have a bag of chips. I do drink a lot of water and I walk for about 30 min’s on most days during lunch.
Now that I’ve found my favorite places lunch is NOT good for me I’m eating in, frozen but still exercising. I’m having a protein bar, cottage cheese or yogurt for snacks. Generally I have been trying to have a protein bar on days I go to the gym.
I’ve been going to the gym for a few weeks, 30-40 on the treadmill. I went from 25 min mile to a 17 min mile. I’m lifting some weights and some toning. I’m feeling better for sure, and can’t wait till tomorrow night when I have my first weigh in and see if my little flower moves down for lb’s lost.
