Day 1 was super strong, lots of motivation to follow the book's nutrition and exercise program while I was reading it, trying to plan ahead. Then Day 2 comes and I got frustrated with the layout of the book and motivation fell, I still followed the nutrition plan but I didn't exercise as much. I even prepared the enchiladas that were on the meal plan for supper even though we were in a rush to get out the door for my girls' Spring Music Program. Day 3 I pretty much sat on my butt and ate whatever I wanted to (I did keep my portions in check though). Day 4 I followed BLC22's workout challenge and kept my calories in check. I did really well eating out at Burgerville for my son's preschool's fundraiser. Kept my dinner AND dessert caloies under 650 and fat under 25! Bonus: I kept my protein to carb ratio under 1:3. Not having the tracker last night kinda threw me, but I wrote everything down so I could put it in the tracker later.
Now here is Day 5, breakfast came late but I ate super healthy! I tried to hang the kids' curtains up in their bedrooms to give me something to focus on instead of sittin' here on my butt watching TV and having the urge to munch just because I'm bored. But the dang drill bit got stuck and now I have to wait for hubby to get home to help me get it out before I can finish the job.
I am anxious about this weekend's challenge. I've never done well with challenges but then again I haven't done well losing this weight so something has to change. This fat isn't just going to magically disappear. I am really tired of having pain everyday in my back because my back can't handle my big ol' belly.
