Yeah, we do that at work. LOL
So, yesterday went well, I did 45 minutes on my recumbent exercise bike (didn't want to run two days in a row, while I'm working on my hips and such) and burned 328 calories because I cycled like a BOSS. No lie--I pushed myself to try more resistence than ever, kept telling myself 'just another two minutes,' 'just another 30 seconds,' 'just finish this interval, then I'll bump it down a little.......JUST KIDDING, one more minute!!'
I really felt like I pushed myself, I sweated it up like a mofo, and ate well! Last night's dinner was diced-up leftover chicken breast and brown rice made up into a stir-fry with carrots, snow peas, and egg. Sriracha for a kick...I'm addicted to the stuff now, thanks to Chef Meg!
When I wanted something sweet for dessert, I had a scoop of low-carb vanilla ice cream and a 100-calorie chocolate rice krispie treat, planning every calorie carefully along the way!
Weighed in this morning, and I'm down to 165 from 166!
I feel like this is a great start, and I can only imagine that it would have been even better, if I hadn't slipped up a couple days, calorie-wise. Still, I'm super excited, and definitely motivated!
Today, I ate two 'apple bananas' for breakfast (they're tiny (maybe about 3" long) and adorable, and apparently have more vitamin c and potassium than the average banana!), 1/2 cup of fiber one raisin bran, and a cup of light vanilla yogurt. For lunch, leftovers from last night's dinner. Tonight, I'm not sure what the schedule holds...I have to leave the bank early for an appointment with my doctor at 4, and I have a call-in shift at bath and body works 6-10. So, I'm kind of playing it by ear. But if I get called in, I'll bust my butt and get a sort-of workout in. If not: it's a running day!
Today at the doctor's office: eczema, BP, cholesterol (maybe), and I want to pick her brain about what she thinks is a healthy weight for me (I hate the BMI thingie, and honestly, I think it'd be a cool goal to have--to reach the weight where my doctor says I'm healthy).
Btw, I enjoyed this, so I'm sharing: http://www.thefrisky.com/2010-
