Entry 23: It's a brand new day.
<-- Back in 8th grade with my friend. I just saw her yesterday to do her maternity portraits. It got me thinking about when I have kids. This whole weight loss is going to benefit me when I get to that point. When the time comes I don't want any complications because of my obesity.
Don't worry, no kids soon. I would like to wait until after I am married.
I have lost my way these past couple of days. I didn’t cheat; I actually ate less than 1,200 calories which I know isn’t good either. I skipped working out on Monday and I didn’t end up walking to my Moms Monday either but last night at 10PM after not having worked out all day; I DRAGGED myself down to the basement and set my phones alarm for one hour and forced myself to work out until it went off! I usually only do 30 minutes but I felt I had to make up for Monday. Let’s just say my heads back in the game after that! I could barely walk upstairs afterwards, ha! It’s amazing on what a little exercise will do for your overall well being. This week is going to be a hard one on the exercise front. I have no oomph! I have my monthly visit and am feeling so lethargic! I have decided to not weigh in on this Friday in case I’m bloated. I want to get the most accurate reading so the next time I will weigh in will be Friday, June 1st. This week will be my bi-week, like in footsball – lol
I went to the grocery store yesterday and picked up a few things I needed. I had been out of bananas for 2 days! My whole world comes crashing down if I don’t have bananas. I skipped exercising Monday and I was out of bananas. I almost skipped exercising yesterday and I was out of bananas. I go bananas if I don’t have bananas! With me I think it is a complete mind over matter thing. It’s all in my head but I feel my banana for breakfast starts off my day and when I have no banana I don’t eat any breakfast and then I get sad later in the day and that leads to not working out. By George I think I’ve got it! LOL
Speaking of going to the grocery store; I am amazed on how much cheaper my bills are just by eating healthier! I always used to use the excuse “I can’t afford healthy food” – “Healthy food is so expensive”… Well I was a moron! JUNK FOOD is EXPENSIVE! When you don’t buy junk food anymore and go healthy your bill gets cut in half. At least mine does. I also seem to get more for my money!! I got 4 lean cuisines on sale, 2 bushes of broccoli, 3 onions, 2 cucumbers, a head of cauliflower, a half a head of cabbage, 2 packages of button mushrooms, 1 green pepper, 6 bananas and 5 more packages of that frozen Pollock fish I had the other day ALL for $29!!!!
Lean Cuisine makes a really good Mac and cheese. I was pleasantly surprised! I made it in the oven like I do to them all and it turned out very good. My other favorites so far are the cheese ravioli, the Salisbury steak one and their chicken ones are good as well. The chicken actually tastes like good non frozen chicken! The only frozen meals I have said "yuck" to were the Weight Watcher Smart Ones. They have some good ones but I think Lean Cuisine has better quality/taste. Oh well, whatever’s on sale right?! Lol – I couldn’t imagine myself paying full price for one.
My friend and I are going for our walk at 5:30 as far as I know. I will probably have a picture to post from it tomorrow. I am hoping to sneak a nap in today sometime before then. I didn’t get more than 4 hours of sleep last night. I was up at 5am wide awake. Getting enough sleep plays a big role in someone who is trying to loose weight! This week is going haywire for me!
The picture below is my exercise bike. A couple years ago we picked it up for $5 off the side of the road lol - OH! I forgot to say before in a previous post that Michael got the treadmill working! I was so happy. Who’da thunk I’d be so happy over that?
