Week 1 Day 1: Today was a little bit harder for me to stick to my diet. At work today they made one of my most favorite meals: chicken fried steak with mashed potatoes and white gravy...holy smokes I wanted to eat that so badly! Hello carb city.. no thanks! I opted for a semi-healthier option: chicken, rice, and veggie stir-fry with a teeny bit of soy sauce. I was still a bit hungry so I ate a small bowl of granola cereal with skim milk. After a full bottle of water I was fine.. but still wanted yummy treats for my belly :D Chris made yummy steaks tonight which I ate half of mine and planned on eating the other half either at lunch or dinner tomorrow however, Chris thought it was a bone and accidentally tossed it... He's super supportive.. he just throws my food away ;)
I went to the gym again because we haven't picked up the elliptical yet. I did 20 minutes and burned 132 calories. Not too terrible... I'm feeling pretty worn out because Tuesdays are long work days for me. Considering I didn't even want to think about working out, and I did anyway if only for 20 minutes, I'm ok with that. So are my legs! Thursday is my first Weight Watchers meeting and I couldn't be more excited. I'm ready to learn different ways to put food together and have weekly meetings to document my progress! Definitely a great week so far!
Some things that would help my progress I think:
- Bathroom scale. People have different opinions on this, but I like seeing results. It helps me stay motivated so that I can eat right through the week!
- A tanning package. Probably not the best for my skin, but I need to start building a base tan anyway so that I don't fry the first day the weather decides to get over 60.
- Massage? Yes please! Ok, ok this really won't help my progress but it will feel great on my out of shape sore muscles!
