7 Days to DietBet End - Daily Blog Countdown. Day #6.
Tuesday, September 15, 2015
So here we are. Six days left. I felt as though I did okay yesterday. I made homemade pizza for dinner, which we make pretty healthy, but it still had quite a bit of cheese. If my tracking was accurate, I still did pretty well for calories for the day. Not a total fail. Lost 0.4# in one day. I was hoping for more around 1.1#. Yes, that is pushing it, but was hoping it was do-able! :)
I did get my 96 oz of water in and I did not have any added sweets/desserts despite hubby snacking on chocolate and chips/salsa! Yay me!
Exercise was horrible. I did do my 30 minutes on the elliptical, but I did not walk any extra on the treadmill and I did not do my abs / arms challenge. I had a horrible headache last night so we ended up going to the bedroom early and watching a chick-flick until around 10:15p.
Today has not been great. I have been super busy all morning and then did a presentation for our Cancer Resource Group here at work. We provided lunch and at first I turned it down, knowing that I had my super healthy lunch back in the fridge, but then everyone was looking at me disappointed - questioning why I was not eating. So I did it. Granted, I did okay, I guess...but it wasn't my super healthy planned lunch.
I did not get a breakfast, so I think I will eat my Greek Yogurt as a snack later.
Lunch: 2 Slices Sara Lee Whole Wheat Bread (I'm not sure if it was the 100% WW or if it was the WW Soft and Smooth.) Not horrible, but not an uber healthy bread. :/ It will make me feel bloated and icky later, I'm sure. I already feel the bloat coming on. On it, I had probably 3 oz of turkey breast, 2 slices of tomato & 1 leaf of romaine. Again, not bad. On the side I had an orange, which was yummy!
I'm not sure what dinner will be...we have leftovers to eat and I'm thinking we'll need something quick since hubby works tonight.
Goals for Today:
Consume around 1200 calories.
Consume 96 oz H2O
No Added Sugar/Sweets/Desserts
Abs/Arms Challenge - Do Days 17-23 (every hour from 4p-10p - catch up).
Yoga Class, 75 Minutes
Treadmill @ 7p for ?? Minutes
Go to bed by 9:30p to get at least 8 hrs of sleep.
These goals are quite similar to yesterdays goals, and they probably will be for the next 6 days. Regardless, writing them out again helps me. My optimal goal would be to wake up 1.2# or more lighter tomorrow. By cutting out junk and being precise I am hoping to see. Unlikely, but worth a shot!
