40 day challenge: Day 1

Thursday, November 14, 2013

First, let me share this photo - it really has some truth to it emoticon

Here is the link in case it is too small to read. Definitely worth clicking on and while you're at it, check out her whole page which I find to be pretty helpful and encouraging. www.facebook.com

Yesterday's workout:

was one hour of Metabolic Training. We're talking sets of burpees and planks and pushups and full body workout stuff. I felt like I was in the army doing a boot camp training. My trainer had me doing Burpees on a medicine ball, then holding planks while balancing on the medicine ball. I am stronger than I think.



Egg scramble with sausage, onion, cheese - coffee with heavy cream - handful of almonds
Angus burger (no bun) & a lovely salad - 2 peices of lindt dark chocolate with mint
Tomato Bisque soup, 1/4 of a grilled cheese sandwich - was not planned, found myself eating it and quickly gave rest away to my daughter (win!!)

Then I got home feeling great about my eating. My daughter pulled a "surprise" out of the fridge. She had made a pumpkin cheesecake. It was a beautiful desert and made with love. I had a small peice.

As I've said before - calories made with love don't count, right?!

Proud I only had one small peice.

That in itself is an accomplishment. I also managed to leave it at home in the fridge and not bring any to work today.


Overall - good day 1!

    Great cartoon!!! I have felt that way many times. I keep fighting it, most times I win.

    That was so sweet that your daughter made the cheesecake. I think anything made with love has extra vitamins!!

    Love that workout!

    Hilarious and too true; and congrats on the pumpkin cheesecake too.

    The rebel is key in getting to maintenance -- refusing to eat "socially" and refusing to postpone time for exercise are both rebellious choices. I did lose friends over it and I did have to "educate" my family about it --gently.

    And sustaining weight loss requires sustaining the rebellion when there is no longer any apparent need to do it. Plus the "rebel" gets tired of the consistency required. Hence the need for other acts of overt rebellion : to keep the rebel happy.
