I dunno what that title's all about...but basically I'm excited because I was kinda a blob last week. I STUCK TO THE PLAN!! But I didn't do anything extra and I felt a bit halfhearted. I think I ate better last week -- lots of fresh fruit and veggies! But over the weekend I ate HORRIBLY.
I lost weight. I mean, I gauge my eating good and eating bad, all of these are within my cal, carb, fat, AND protein! And I was still excercising as much as I should have been and actually burned a bit more, but I just felt lazy.
So anyway. Now that Aunt Flo is GONE, I feel energized and ready to go! :) Not to mention I'm motivated by my recent loss. Anyway.
I fed EIGHT PEOPLE on Saturday for dinner. I made burgers and potato wedges with a recipe for the burgers from my cook healthy cook quick book. I modified it a BIT, using better buns than suggested, but I also used turkey bacon instead of ham for the filling so it was kind of a trade off. Everything was delicious, I also budgeted myself for cake that evening. hahah. :) We looked through all the cakes in the bakery section to find the one with the best nutrition facts and got it. It was quite delicious!!! But not good for like... EVERYDAY. you know?
But it was ok for one day. But yeah, making 16 burgers with FILLING in side and cooking 3 batches of potato wedges was kinda.... a lot. :) But it was very rewarding to be able to do that for people and make something that everyone enjoyed but still fit within my diet. (Of couse, a few people including myself only ate one burger, which means we had leftovers but since I used semi-healthy recipe to begin with -- I CAN ACTUALLY EAT THEM and not SCREW UP!). hahaha.
Wellllll... I dunno what else to say except I'm losing weight still but my measurements haven't changed since last week, although considering how tall I am I think I'll have to get used to the fact that the scale is going to move faster than my perception of myself. I mean, it definitely did while I was gainign! EEP!
