I'm happy to report that today was much, much better. I was able to keep that carb monster at bay, and made some good choices.
My boss took me and the other secretaries out to lunch today and I ordered a tortilla soup and a salad. The tortilla soup was really not very good, so I decided to just eat the salad. Instead of the dressing, I used the salsa and it was really good! I had a couple of pieces of chicken fajita strips for the protein and counted out 10 chips so I wouldn't overdo! It was very satisfying and I am so glad I didn't eat the soup, even though it did go to waste. I just decided it wasn't worth the calories! Challenge 1 met!
I came home and had my healthy soup, logged my food, and realized I had enough calories for the day, so I shut down the kitchen. Challenge 2 met!
My workout tonight was the Zumba Ripped DVD. It is the one that you use with toning sticks. I did it for the first time 2 nights ago and I am still feeling the effects in my core. It was a really good workout, but only 20 minutes long, so I followed it up with a hoop cool down! I hope to keep whittling away at my problem spot which, if you saw my before pictures, is my belly! I carry most of my excess fat right around the middle! I was so excited when my waist finally shrunk smaller than my chest and hips - lol!
Speaking of hoops, I watched MOSTMOM1's vlog today on how to choose a hoop and found out that I really was using a child's hoop! I am doing just fine with it for now, so I will hold off on moving on to anything else until I do a little more research. She said it was actually harder to hoop with the cheap ones than the more expensive ones. I was thinking, "isn't it a better workout if it is harder to do?" Just wondering...
I don't have to work tomorrow (yay!) so I am going to spend a little time catching up on my blog reading (I missed you guys!) and then go to bed and read a mindless novel until I fall asleep!
Thank you for all of your encouragement on my blog yesterday when I was really struggling! All the support really helped pick me back up and get me going again today. I really wanted to be able to give y'all a good report tonight!
Good night, sweet friends! Have a happy Friday!
