I woke up 15 minutes early with the intention of eating a quick oatmeal breakfast and have my lemon water. Well I got the lemon water down but I just could not find the appetite to eat first thing this morning so I ended up skipping breakfast. I then made myself a cup of coffee that I took to work and had another cup of coffee later on. For lunch I went to Subway again. I am going to try to do that often because I enjoy their veggie subs and it's easy. I figured I would spend more money in other junky fast food anyways. I got a foot long veggie sub on 9 grain honey oat bread. I ate half for lunch and then I had the other half for dinner. I also had some pretzels with the half that I had for dinner. I get every veggie on it besides jalapenos and banana peppers. I like that I get all my veggies in and it keeps me feeling full for a while. I got 9 grain honey oat bread today but I usually get it on flat bread. Calorie wise flat bread is the lowest. Which I find crazy because it feels so indulgent! If you go on Subways website you can put together your own sub with everything you get on it and it will tell you how many calories it is. I found it handy. For my ENTIRE foot long sub today it was 360 calories. That includes pepper jack cheese & my condiments; light mayo and yellow mustard. If I get it on flatbread it is 10 calories less. Also I don't even realize the meat is missing.
Today I am slacking with my workout. My basement is clean but it isn't cozy yet and I hate it! This weekend I'll get on that. I know I should have sucked it up and did a full workout but today I have that "I don't care" attitude. I ended up bringing Michaels bow flex weights upstairs and did different lifts with those. I almost caved today too on the food front. For one I was ---> this <--- close to grabbing candy at work and for two I almost got chips instead of pretzels at the gas station. I'm glad I didn't. I'm surprised I even lifted weights! I know when I was walking into Subway earlier I was getting whiff's of yummy greasy food from a restaurant nearby. I had to stop myself from wanting to go in the wrong direction!
I also weighed myself this morning and I have lost some weight since I weighed in a couple of days ago! I was surprised! So far, so good. I just gotta keep it up!
