So yesterday was pretty good- carbs were higher than yesterday (40%) but they were all good carbs, like whole grain bread (1 slice), a bit of leftover brown rice (1 cup), and so on. I just wanted to use the stuff up rather than toss it out (I hate waste). Still haven’t weighed in… I took the challenge at 3fc to weigh in on Friday and update my ticker *yikes* hope I don’t cry when I step on that scale! lol.
And man- yesterday was a tough day to resist temptation- I was CRAVING fresh spring rolls with peanut sauce SOOOO bad- but I was like nope Bee- you CANNOT HAVE THAT. Dinner yesterday was cordon bleu’s (finally lol) that were surprisingly only 11 grams of carbs, then a buttload of iceberg lettuce and balsamic dressing (soo good). Oh I did also have some grilled beans, which added to my carb count- but I only had half a cup, and the rest was put away, hubby had corn and beans with his Cordon Bleu (I know a FUNNY combo but hey when your man “helps” cook you let him!).
I crocheted a LOT last night (felt good I needed to relax) and just watched Dexter with hubby- man that show is great! If you haven’t seen it- it’s about a blood stain pattern forensic scientist who is a serial killer and kills the bad guys who get away and avoid justice. I love it! It’s a showtime series- but the first three seasons are already out on DVD (another reason I LOVE Netflix).
He’s kind of cute isn’t he?
Okay anyways- I’m so happy we have another three day weekend. From all the events the past week I’m EXHAUSTED. Yesterday literally got home, did a 20 minute workout (just a jog on the treadmill), made dinner, ate it, then watched TV and crocheted till 9:30 pm, then went to bed! The worst part is that I could not sleep all night UG. I woke up and tossed and turned the WHOLE time *sigh* I thought working out would help but nope- seemed to keep me up- but I probably just need to continue the workouts to get back into the routine…
Today I have two hard boiled eggs for breakfast, lunch is an open faced Tuna sandwich with mustard, and a spinach salad with balsamic dressing. Not much is planned for after work. I’m just going to go home and relax with hubby- make some dinner (not sure what at this point), work out, and watch TV and then just relax.
So since today is the 31st- I’m going to say that THIS YEAR will be the last time my New Year’s Resolution will be to LOSE WEIGHT. I will be at goal darnit. No more darn excuses- no more falling off the bandwagon, etc. I’m turning 27 on January 15th and I don’t want to be fat when I turn 28!
With that resolution I’m going to have specifics, cuz saying “I’m going to lose weight”… yeah… not exactly well though out IMO. So my goals are:
1- eat 20-40% carbs a day (recommend for women with PCOS for weightloss), and the carbs will come from GOOD carbs.
2- workout as often as possible
3- get back to the bike riding on weekends (we’ve missed it)
4- Continue to try not to snack at night
5- work on toning while losing cuz I feel like my arms are HUGE lately
That’s it- have a good New Year’s everyone! Good luck with your resolutions!
