Lots on my mind... including questions
Wednesday, February 13, 2013
I slipped up last night
I didn't have dinner planned out like I should have, so when I picked my husband up from work it was like a flashback: "What do you want for dinner?.... I dunno, what do you want for dinner?" We got home and all I wanted was hot wings from a local diner. And that's what I got. My husband kept saying "This can be our cheat meal." It didn't occur to me until after I ate all 15 of those wings (with blue cheese dressing mmmmm) that it wasn't right to have a cheat meal after only a few days on a diet.
So I woke up this morning and I'm feeling extra down on myself. I had an e-mail waiting for me though from a fellow Spark member, asking me if I wanted an accountability partner. She asked at the perfect time!!! Of course I said yes, so now I have someone there for me to tell me not to eat certain things. So excited!
Now, I have a couple questions....
I read online that having protein first thing in the morning is great because if fuels the body and it's great to have in the AM because it takes longer for your body to digest. Is this true? If so, what is the best protein shake or something to have in the morning? Does SlimFast count as a good shake to have?
Also, I measured myself all over (inches) so this way I can count inches lost as well as pounds. I've learned that sometimes even if you don't lose weight, you can lose inches because fat is turning into muscle. I measured myself on the 11th... when would be a good time to measure myself again? Should I do it in a month? Or wait until my April 1st weigh in and then measure myself every month from there on out? I just don't think I should measure myself on March 1st, because it's only two weeks away. I don't want to measure myself in two weeks when I may only have lost a couple inches all around and then get down about myself. What should I do?
