Hot for Halloween 100 day challenge-day 21
Friday, August 12, 2011
I slept really late today, but I'd like to think its because I needed it. Plus, if I'm sleeping, I'm not eating, so that helps. The scale was at 261.6# this morning, so I suppose I didn't retain too much water from my excessive sodium intake yesterday. I'm happy about this, because this means that I'm three weeks into the contest and down 8.2# That's ahead of my 6# loss I should be at this point!
I want to work on getting some more pictures of me on here, so I can see my progress. I didn't eat as healthy as I should've today, as in too many sweets; I didn't go over any of my ranges on my nutrition tracker, though. I'm running low on ideas and motivation to prepare healthy food right now, because I don't have any more money (aka foodstamps) until Saturday to fill out my menu. However, I do know that I have what I need to eat healthily and balanced tomorrow, and I'm going to do it! I was also behind on the dishes, which also discourages me from cooking healthy foods. I've gotten kind of caught up, so I only have one or two more rounds in the sink to get them all clean. My bf despairs that as soon as I get them all clean, I make 20 dirty again. I don't really care, though, because I tried the all-disposable dish thing for a while. I ended up realizing that I made way too much trash that way and going against my hippy, tree-hugging nature. Also, I try to remind myself that handwashing the dishes burns more calories, so its a fitness activity in a way. I've been extra motivated in my getting fit since I saw this episode of Monday Night RAW (WWE.) Beth Phoenix inspired me with this move she did in a Diva Royal Rumble in which she picked up the two Bella twins, one on each arm. She lifted them both up on her biceps and took a few steps to the edge of the ring to throw them over. They have to have weighed around 100# at least, so this was really impressive to me. Phoenix is not really skinny; she's a larger built woman, but it is all muscle. That's what I want to be! I want to be ripped! I want muscles all over! That's what motivates me in my ST and cardio, because I've got to firm up my muscles and burn off the fat that's covering them. I will do it, just watch! That's why I need more pictures on here, too. Its just that the only camera I have is on my phone and I don't have the cable to connect it to my computer or web capabilities. I know, I'm behind the times, but I'm afraid I'll break one of those fancier phones. I can still text the pix to my dad, who'll email them to me from his Iphone. I'll get them on here soon!
Anyway, its time for
Tomorrow will be a healthier day! T.T.F.N.
