Yesterday went pretty well. I did laps in the pool. Aimed for 30 laps but still felt good so I did 50. Yay, me! I planned on being in trouble in the evening so I went to the store and bought some rice krispy treats and some sugar free jello parfait. When I started craving snacks I ate 2 Rice Krispy Treats and one parfait. I know, that’s a lot but it only came to 185 calories and it soothed my cravings. Recently, I’ve been eating crackers and cheese, Homemade malted milk, candy and/or cookies so it was a vast improvement. I grilled flank steak for dinner and made sauteed yellow squash and zucchini, homegrown tomato slices, and sauteed green beans. I almost didn’t fix it because everyone was saying they didn’t like it and wouldn’t eat but then I decided if they don’t want to eat what I fix, they’re on their own. Of course, they were all ready for some of the flank steak but they added mac and cheese to it.
I’m off to a good start this morning. I’ve already ridden my bike. I’ve been doing three times around a two block area in the neighborhood and I pushed myself to do four laps today. I came home and I’ve just finished eating a small bowl of Kashi Go Lean Crunch with skim milk and fresh blueberries I picked from the garden.
I haven’t weighed myself because I always weigh after my shower and I still haven’t taken a shower. Didn’t see much sense in it knowing I’d be working up a sweat riding my bike and doing the daily gardening. I’ll record my weight after I finish dealing with the outdoor stuff that’s going to make me all sweaty and gross.
4:00 p.m. Update – Weighed 216 today. That’s three pounds less than yesterday. Be nice if I could do that everyday. I did my laps and I added ten so I did 60 laps instead of 50.
I’m going to the store in a few minutes and I’m going to pick up some of my diet staples.
