Blah. today, I'm a little blue. I haven't lost any more weight since Thursday, and I don't really understand why. I've been sticking to the plan for the most part (my few slip-ups weren't really enough to cause weight gain or loss), getting in my exercise. The only real reasons I can think of is that 1) my body is used to the 20 minutes of exercise I've been getting during the week and I need to bump it up or 2) my totally random "period" is affecting my loss. I have an I.U.D, and have had it for over a year, so my cycle is totally irregular now... but yesterday I felt crampy and yucky and that's usually a sign that it's showing up. I went to bed at 7:20 last night!! Luckily, it doesn't last long for me anymore... I'm hoping that if I really focus over the next few days, drink a million glasses of water, and get in a lot of miles, I'll see a change by Thursday. Even if it's just one pound, I'll take it. Sure, 3 pounds for a week would be stinky, but at least it's three gone for good.
Anyway, I'm lagging this morning. Haven't done makeup or hair or anything. Might just swipe on some mascara and call it a day. I really haven't got the energy for anything else. This morning I blended a chocolate shake with 6 oz. of coffee for a boost of caffeine... it only really succeeded in making my tummy hurt. I packed a small meal today:
-AM snack: 2 celery stalks (might eat 1 small apple at work, because the kids finished the apples and oranges we had at home yesterday)
L- Healthy Choice Portabello Marsala Pasta w/ 1 cup mixed veggies, 1 baked potato
-PM snacks: 1 kiwi, 1 tomato, 1 fruit cup (will rinse and drain), vanilla shake
Ugh. gotta go get ready for the day. If it's nice out this morning, I might plan for my kids to play outside all morning... I really don't feel like doing activities in the classroom. Have a good Tuesday, everyone-- perkier than mine, I hope!
