Weight & Weights
I weighed in this past Monday at 217.0 which is a gain of 0.8 pounds. I'm not worried though. I stayed within my points and don't really have any explanation for the gain so I'm not going to feel bad about it. I haven't been doing great with the water so I really kicked that up over the last few days so I think that gain is gone already. Phew!
I've been doing really great with the activity too. I went to barbell class on Saturday and did 40 minutes on the treadmill. Tuesday evening, I did 30 minutes on the treadmill and I went to boot camp class! My friend Lindsay came with me again. Yay!! There were some tough moments but I felt awesome after. So great when I know I'm meeting someone because then I know I won't change my mind and couch instead :) That brings us to Wednesday (today). I had a horrible day and more than anything, I didn't want to go to barbell class and I really just wanted to grab some crackers and a block or wheel of cheese and settle in with the remote. I thought about it all afternoon actually. I knew that I would feel so much better after barbell class than I would after a block of cheese. That's the ONLY thing that got me out the door. Tonight I did 20 minutes on the treadmill with really loud Girl Talk playing on my iPod, then did barbell class. My arms feel like jello :)
I've been doing great with eating & tracking. Yesterday I started making my own salad dressing using the Epicure seasonings & mixes. Good timing because I think all the ones in my fridge are past the expiry date. It really tastes so great and is so much better for you. I love that it will be fresh every week. Spinach salad with mushrooms, red onions, red pepper and the vinaigrette has been delicious. I really want to get a little more adventurous and creative in the kitchen to avoid the boredom. Boredom leads to blocks of cheese. NOT GOOD!
Off to enjoy my Vanilla Rooibos tea before bed . . . Zzzzzz.
