Today is the first day of the mini challenge. I decided to continue to keep me accountable. This weekend, I spent the day with my mom and she is a fast food junkie. Yes, I had Wendy’s. I had 1/2 chicken sandwich, 1/2 of a small fry and 3/4 of a small Dr. Pepper. I then went on to have pizza for dinner that night. That was not bad enough they had a special and I would save money by getting the deal with cinnamon sticks. Yep, I ate them all. The next day I was kicking myself. I am glad we are starting today. This forum obviously keeps me in line. No way have I wanted to sway. Too many people have supported me and helped me along. Not only do I not want to disappoint myself but also I do not want to disappoint those who have helped me.
So today, I went on a two-mile walk with my cousin. We just did our normal. We were not in the mood to go up in the mountains. We walked at a brisk pace. On the inclines, we only struggled to catch our breathe the second time around, but not enough to stop. A sign of how far we have come.
I had hard-boiled eggs and toast for breakfast along with a bottle of water. I should have eaten before walking but sleep seemed to be more important.
I am going to try to do some RT tonight. The boys should be coming at the end of the week and then I will not have access to the equipment.
Since I lost 10 pounds and I felt I should have lost 15, I am going to log my food, get my calories, and find out if I am eating too much. With all the time constraints and the holiday, I figured if I posted half the time it would get me ready for next years 52DC.
I purchased a circa recipe book and want to put in the recipes I use along with the calorie information. I love trying new recipes but sometimes I forget what cookbook they came from. I used to be good at entering the recipe in the computer but life got in the way and I have not been doing it. I know I purchased avocado oil for a few new recipes but I will be danged if I can remember what cookbook they came from.
So there you have it. I hope everyone has a great day. Keep it clean.
