I am on back on track working out 5-6 days. (I pulled a muscle in my back last week so had to rest.) I started the Supreme 90 workouts this morning. It was a good challenging workout on the chest and back. Although I suck at push-ups, I did my best and all I can do is get stronger. I always feel ready to deal with the day after getting the body, mind and blood moving first. I still miss bootcamp. There is something to be said about exercising in a group. You keep each other
I started tracking my food intake by using My Plate from here: http://www.livestrong.com/
I lost 3 pounds last week! Yipee!!! I'm doing the happy weight loss dance. "Eyeing it" did not work. I was putting way too much on my plate. I knew it and still kept eating anyways. I am back to eating 6 meals a day. I told my husband that I would be "good" during the weekday and not track my food on the weekends. This is totally doable for me. And after all it is all about making it work for me, right?
I usually find that writing down what I eat boring, but this 6 meal thing makes me feel like I am eating a lot and not starving myself. So I just want you to see how much I get to eat in one day. My blood sugars never drop drastically and I don't feel sleepy or heavy from eating too many carbs or fats.
4 cups of water after waking up with a squeeze of lemon if you like
Meal 1- 1 packet of plain oatmeal, 2 hard boiled eggs, coffee with stevia and fat-free half and half
Meal 2- 1 medium apple, 2 tablespoons almond butter, 2 cups water
Meal 3- 4 oz salmon, brown rice and green salad, two cups of water
Meal 4- 2 tablespoons humus, handful of carrots/celery and 1 brown rice cake
Meal 5- 1/2 cup brown rice, steamed broccoli, 4 oz. chicken breast, two cups of water
Meal 6- 1/2 cup keifer mixed with 1/4 cup frozen blueberries, two cups of water
The hard part was planning it (took hours) and measuring everything takes forever. The My Plate tracker is so easy to use! I was able to track my workout too. So this is my new favorite tool! It has given me the motivation to get back on track, hope that I can do this, and energy to do a new challenge.
It's a short work week, but let's make it count!
STAY ON TRACK!
RENEW YOUR COMMITMENT DAILY!
YOU CAN DO IT!
NEVER EVER GIVE UP!
Always on the move,
