Yesterday, I didn't eat the best food, per se, but I did get in fruit/veg and I stayed within calorie ranges.
I didn't get called in to my second job, so I was able to go home after work. I'd originally planned to hop on the exercise bike, but when I got home and saw what a mess it was, well...I just started cleaning. 4.5 hours later, bf came home and made me stop, lol. I did 3 loads of laundry (cardio, right there...not deadlifting the laundry, but the walk to the laundry room and back and there and back and there and back and...), a full sink full (kitchen full, really) of dishes, scrubbed and bleached the kitchen counters and floor, and wiped down the cabinets...I neatened and vacuumed the living room and our bedroom, put away any and all clothing (we had heaps, just...everywhere. It was shameful.), neatened the closet...
It was kinda awesome to wake up this morning and see how nice the place looked. I just wish the males would help me maintain it a little better...especially Mr. 18-year-old college student who stays home all day every day except for the 4-5 classes he has during the week. (He had the gall to chide me for having washed all the dishes, since there were some of his in there...like it was the first time I'd washed his dishes, or like I could possibly have assumed that he'd do it when he got home...)
Anyhoo. So, yesterday's meals...a banana and vanilla yogurt for breakfast, a cup of Annie's microwaveable mac n' cheese and a pear for lunch...dinner was leftover homemade turkey chili (with 2 kinds of beans! I'm growing as a person! lol) with a handful of baked tortilla chips... I broke down later and had a pop-tart as a snack (red velvet...yumm!!). Once again, I didn't make my water goal...but I'm dead set and determined to do it today!!
Weigh-in day results: 165. No up, no down.
I'm blaming the water...
Just kidding, lol. Honestly, I haven't been perfect, I haven't made time to get on the treadmill/exercise bike/bike the past few days...but I've cleaned my butt off, and I only took one day to just chill and recoup from the week, so... It didn't budge, but it will!! Besides, this is re-learning and re-training time. I'm definitely re-learning!!
Tonight: I have passes to see a preview of Ender's Game (apparently, some of the cast will be there!!), I have to see if bf can go... Either way, steak and baked potato for dinner, which makes me happy (I love a good steak!)... and a stint on the bike!!
