Today's Picture: So incredibly happy with my numbers from this past week!!
(Hopefully you can see them ok)
Man what an amazing high I am starting this week on! I am so thrilled with my progress last week. Although I have only seen a couple pounds progress so far on the scale, the food area is making huge progress.
I enjoyed my free day yesterday very much. In fact probably too much. Went out on a date an ate a little more than I should have to say the least. Although most of it was veggies (aside from the margarita and onion rings). I look forward to getting use to eating smaller portions so that doesn't happen as often on my free days.
One area I am struggling with is that I am finding I am having a hard time staying above my minimum calories for the day. I seem to be in an all or nothing frame of mind when it come to diet. And when I get into it, I always seem to be too low at the end of the day. I mean, ya I am glad I am not over eating, but I would like to get at least 1,100 calories a day in! I know 900 is way too little, especially with my workouts. I am also way low on my protien. Somehow I have got to be thinking of that more, so I can be getting at least 42g of protien.
Besides that I am SO freaking proud of myself for going a WHOLE WEEK and staying within my ranges!
Although I am trying to extremely limit my sugar except for on Saturday, which is my free day, I did give in and let myself have a piece of chocolate cake that my husband had made yesterday. Well since we were gone most of yesterday we didn't get a chance to have any. I really wanted to have at least one piece of it. I knew I probably shouldn't, but I had a small reasonable sized piece. When I was about 3/4 done with it. I realized I was pretty full, and really didn't need to finish it, to feel satisfied. Let me tell you it was hard but I got up, picked up my plate and threw the rest down the sink. What a great feeling of power that was! Me taking charge of my food, instead of my food taking charge of me! I hope that is the first of many good choices to come.
Ok, so here is today's accomplishements and accountability.
**Woke up at 10am! Ahhh! Ok, stayed out a bit late last night with my hunky hubby. :0
**Worked out for 50 min. Walked/ran 2.13 miles. Did weights- Arms, chest and abs.
**Stayed under my calorie limits for the day! A little too much.
**Only drank 7 glasses of water today. That should have been way higher. But woke up late and was grocery shopping half the day. Plan to make it 12 tomorrow
Yay! Can't wait to make tomorrow another awesome day! Going to make some yummy granola! Gotta be careful though, the calories can really hide in that stuff, healthy or not!
