Day 4 of My Challenge
Thursday, March 27, 2014
I had two slight slips yesterday with resulted in a very slight weight-gain. When I got home from work yesterday, I reached for the honey roasted mixed nuts that are not suppose to be in the house. I compensated for this slip by removing the bulgur from my dinner. BUT...when I went for my cereal before bed, I was basically out of my no sugar added muesli so I reached for Rip's Triple Berry cereal -- which I believe is also no sugar added. The serving size was 1/2 cup which was 210 calories!! How could that be -- oh, it has walnuts in it. So I measured out my 1/4 cup and ate that. It felt like such a small serving size - I didn't think I had any walnuts in my serving so my calories would not have been so high - so I allowed myself to have some more. As soon as I was finished, I knew I ate too much. Well, at least it was a healthy splurge. Better focus today.
I completed my 30 minute abs/chest/back workout at the gym this morning. 30 minutes is just not enough time - need to up my time to 45 minutes. I guess that means I will be getting up between 4am and 4:15am - ugh! But - I will be able to complete my full workout :) Here's to a great day -- staying under 1600 calories - completing over 10,000 steps on my pedometer!!
My daily affirmation, "Now that I am 132 lbs and 17% body fat, I feel great, have lots of energy, and love being a positive example to others of how great it is to eat a healthy diet and exercise everyday!!"
