Well, yesterday was a good day. Got back to some pretty fundamental basics and it felt good. Did 45 minutes on my treadmill at 3.5-4.0 mph and a 4% incline – good, hard, sweaty walk. Then I ate well all day, though since I was paying attention I noticed a lot more snacking so it’s back to tracking today. I got in all my water and MOST of my vitamins (I remembered them pretty late).
This morning I’m sipping a fabulous coffee with chocolate protein powder. Tastes better than Starbucks and not only a heck of a lot cheaper, but healthier, too. Got my first glass of water and my vitamins handy and I’m trying to put together a menu for the week. Getting back on track after vacation is surprisingly hard. Especially since I had a great plan and stayed on track all DURING vacation.
Got a good butt kicking from my weight watcher’s leader (Thanks, Jane!) and some good advice from my online friend Teresa. I think I’ll take both and keep moving forward. My little binge and post-vacation vacation/cabin fever cost me 4 pounds but I know it will come off quickly and I’ll get back to working on my goal in a few days. I feel like a 3 Day LPT – lean protein train. That will de-carb my system and take off those 4 pounds and get me back to where I was last week. Easy-peasy. Plus, I’ve gotten really good at making protein food in the last 15 months. My menu sounds wonderful doesn’t it?Breakfast: Cafe Brier Marvelous Mocha Snack: Caribbean Cooler Tea Lunch: 1/2 cup of bean, kale and sausage soup with Pure unflavored protein powder
Snack: Roadside Lemonade protein cooler and 1/4 almonds Dinner: Going out with some friends for a birthday celebration, so I’ll take a protein bar and a shake with me in case there’s nothing on the menu that is protein friendly (rarely happens – everyone has chicken and salad!)
I’m putting all my stuff into weight watchers online tracker to see how many points that is (Probably way under, but I also need to calculate how many points those no-bake chocolate peanut butter oatmeal protein bars are (they need a catchy name…).
I also need some time to work on my hair this morning. I did something I haven’t done in years which is hack at my own hair with the scissors. It doesn’t look as bad as I thought it would this morning, but I might need time to run by the barber shop!
Well, gotta get started and then hit the treadmill before work. Have a great day everyone and THANK YOU!
