Exams are over for the semester. I have four next semester, which will prove to be a bit of a challenge, but I’m up for it! :o)
The Mongolian BBQ: was better than I thought it was going to be, although I didn’t see any kind of nutrition information anywhere. However, I think I did very well: hot chicken (raw with marinade), and shrimp with heaps of veggies, a small amount of garlic oil and 2 small ladels of hot chilli sauces. Best thing about Mongolian BBQ is that you add your own oil, sauces, spices, etc. and they cook while you watch, so you know what’s going in it.
Dessert was a pancake drizzled with maple syrup and 2 small scoops of chocolate ice cream with lots of caramel (I love caramel).
And it’s buffet, so go up as many times as you want. I went up 3 times: once for a salad, once for dinner and once (yikes!) for dessert. I felt overall that if I had not eaten the noodles with my main, then I would have been much better off, but as it was, I think I did really well. It’s SO hard not to overeat at buffets. While they did have chips, I wasn’t going to eat no stinkin’ chips. Like I said in my last post, I’m sick of eating chips. I had a small one of DH’s and it was super salty, so no way that I wanted to eat it.
My best mate left the rest of her lollies in my car: an unopened bag of party mix and some Malteasers (Whoppers to those of you in the States). They’re going to DH’s office on Monday, along with the unopened bag of sour worms I craved yesterday but didn’t end up eating. I just don’t want them in my house. Someone else can get fat eating them, but not me.
I didn’t go to class this morning: I just didn’t feel like getting up and doing much of anything except lounging, finishing the Twilight movie I started last night, and thanking whatever God decided that 12 June was the last day for exams for the semester. But while I was watching Twilight, I noticed something really kind of awkward: does nearly every girl in the movie look anorexic or is it just me? On the one hand it’s anorexia, on the other, binging. Where do we find the middle ground in a world of eating disorders?
Day 3, Level 1 30-Day Shred: Making progress. Only times I ever stopped for a quick 2 or 3 second rest was the jump rope in the cardio and the bicycle crunches which are super slow. My endurance is returning. Very happy. Switched out the weights with the 2 tinned peaches for my shoulders and the 3kg weights for biceps and back. I like that arrangement much better. :o)
