Day 25

 

Was today Friday? I think today was Friday. Where did it go? It’s 1:30am and that crazy kid finally just fell asleep. He is a (wonderful!) piece of work! Anyway, here is what I ate

 

Breakfast: Oatmeal, blueberries, banana, cinnamon, home made granola. Coffee w 1% milk

 

Lunch: Burrito with chicken, corn, pepper, refried beans, black beans, salsa and cheese

What I did today that moved me forward: 1- I resisted the urge to have seconds on lunch and dinner. I REALLY wanted more! 2- I thought about chocolate today, and realized I haven’t had any in about 2 weeks. As soon as I took my focus off the chocolate, I stopped sneaking it in. 3- I have made my workouts more challenging and they feel like they are making more of a difference. And I have NO idea how it’s been 25 days and I still haven’t missed even ONE workout!

 

What I did today that held me back: The burrito and the tuna casserole were both super dense calorie packed goodies, with not nearly enough nutritional value to make it worth it. I think if I’m going to eat that stuff, it should be limited to one or two per week. Twice in one day does NOT do a body good. The issue is that those are the only 2 things in the fridge besides that chicken/eggplant parmesan thing my mil makes. So, once again, I ate it because it was here. I’ve got to get a car.  Also, I would’ve liked to get more veggies in today.

 

Dying to know how you are doing!!
