UPDATE ON THE GYM
Monday, February 11, 2013
Well, I went to the gym yestrday at the urging of a friend and was supposed to meet her at 2:00. She didn't come and when I got home, she called saying she was running late so we missed each other. I must say how much I ate going to the gym and I will be glad when this biggest loser competition is over so I don't have to feel obligated to go there and can go back to the YMCA.
When I walked in, the most un appealing man was at the front desk, by unappealing, I mean he certainly wasn't interested in my welfare or what I wanted. He just stared back with a dumb look on his face. I gave up trying to converse with him as I was trying to contact my new trainer. So I pedaled on the bike for 20 min and left. I"m not confident in using any of the machines so I didn't bother.
My new trainer is named Rick and he sounds VERY youn on the phone. I'll give him a shot and try to get through the next 8 weeks. I have lost 6.7 pounds through my own efforts, not with any help from them, that's for sure.
I've been reading the diet book on increasing fiber and going that route. really trying to read the fiber content on the packaging and more fruits and veggies. Had a peach after lunch today and it was delicious and lunch was a squash casserole which normally calls for mayonnaise and I substituted plain yogurt and it was just as tasty.
Tonight it is hamsteak, baked sweet potato, green beans and pineapple. Sweet potato has lots of fiber and better for you than a regular potato.
I bought a box of Good and Plenty candy at the store, sugar coated licorice that I liked when I was a kid and at the movie theater. I dole out ten at a time after meals and that is my dessert. Takes a while to savor each one and it satisfies my sweet tooth. Actually the more fiber in my diet has helped me to feel full longer. So That part is good. Can't wait to get rid of Gold's gym though, I hate that place.
