Well I have gone at least 4 days now without an Oreo. Yay! Maybe more.. i think it's 4... My weekend eating was not that great but it was mostly skipping meals. Like saturday I didn't get up til almost Noon, as I had a lie in with my hubby! So I just made lunch before we went out to town! But we had a good walk through Southampton. I laughed at him because he had to buy root beer at the American store! hehehe. Yes, there's an "American Store" in Southampton. It's a rip off I tell you! BUT for a $3 box of cereal in the states, it's about $10+ at the shop. (it's like 5 GBP... makes it $8-9) They have an interesting selection of US stuff though. They have one of my weaknesses which is the "Throwback" Pepsi.
I still haven't called to get my blood test results. I will try to call this week. I did try to contact a personal trainer, but she hasn't emailed me back. It wasn't that big a deal really because I was swamped in school work that week. I've been very lazy this past week... I will try again.
My dad finally mailed me some stuff from the states. So I should have some Crystal Light at my beck and call soon! yay! some Jambalaya mix, some BBQ sauce... AND MOST IMPORTANTLY my nutrition meal guide from my nutritionist I left on the fridge back home. So that is on its way! Maybe if I follow that i might see more weight loss.
This morning I was flipping through my Sparkpeople cookbook and found some yummies I want to try to make. So I will review them with my Husband tonight and get meals planned out for this week. We are having leftover meatloaf I made last night, along with the leftover Three Mac and cheese (from my cookbook!) tonight with some veggies.
I have also officially put my cat on a diet. She's so tubby, she can't clean herself. She's been itchy with fleas, and she's grumpier than normal. So I got her some Mature light food this weekend. I try to let her outside sometimes, that helps with her activity. Otherwise, she just lays around and sleeps... or meows at me while I do school work. hehe. My other cat is fine. I just feel awful for my older cat... I brush her to help keep mats from forming at least... but she's really having itchy and spasms and she's quite the miserable kitty :(
Anyways enough of my ramblings, on with my day.
Mental Goals for the near future:
1. Get a new pedometer
2. Get my stuff from the shippers! I want my workout gear (weights, etc!)
3. Choose a new recipe or two from my new cookbook and try them!
4. Go for a long walk somewhere! (I have one scheduled with meetup group on sunday).
5. Keep my workouts to about 30 minutes and throw in some Pilates more often!
