Workin' the plan
Welp, I posted my blog at SP. I'm tired of the crap. They might boot me off the site and at this point, yes it would suck but it needed to be said when morale is driving people away. (Three people have already told me they're leaving) If people don't like it, oh well, I'm not out for a popularity contest like SOME people there.
So yesterday was day 1 of the reduction of calories. By lunchtime I definitely felt the absence of the peanut butter on my nana because that held me all morning. So that won't be all the time but this morning I'm having my TJ's Blueberry oatmeal (you know, the one I LOVE that Trader Joe's decided to DISCONTINUE this week!?!? Seriously, this is 5th thing in 2 visits we've gotten discontinued on us. We're not going to have a reason to make an extra trip there if they keep doing this so knock it off JOE!!)...where was I? Oh yeah, oatmeal...so I'm adding my chia seeds to that today which should help hold me over. Who knew those little green afro pottery sprouts could do so much for you including keep you fuller longer? But I've planned out my meals through Thursday and it seems I don't really have to try to cut back so I'm hoping this isn't a painful process at all. If I get that horrific mid-morning gut drop then I'll just have my cut veggies to tide me over. That was the plan yesterday but I forgot. Oops. But for right now, I feel good about the plan. I'm hoping that this was the direction I was supposed to go. I mean why does the body have to be so complicated to figure out? Why can't you get all the number crunching in and it spits out a sheet of paper telling you what you need to change in order to keep losing weight. But then again, what orifice would the sheet come from? Never mind.
Sunday we did Atletica by Ilaria Montagnani. We have a real love/hate relationship with that one. It is such a butt kicker. If you've ever wanted to do a cross fit type workout, that is it. I use 15 lb weights with that one and after 2 of the exercises my form was getting bad so I switched to 10. I wish I had 12's that would've been perfect but it still kept my heart rate up. I burned 650 calories in 30 minutes so I'm happy with that. Last night I did 39 minutes of Hollywood Trainer Cardio Sculpt and burned 535 calories which I'm not happy about. But it was all light weights. Tonight is Turbo Fire 55 which should throughly kick my boo-tay. Dinner is going to be burger and fries. Huh...wha??? Did she say burger and fries? Yep. 96% lean beef, 4 oz burger with spinach and those homemade fries I posted about last week. A few of you said you were going to try those, I hope you liked them!
That's about it for now. My head is in a better space this week which is nice. I get my new washer and dryer today which will be nice to actually wash our bedspreads since there's no agitator and has all of these steam options and stuff. Fancy! So I've gotta get a move on, get a shower so I can be ready for my 4 hour window. *rolling eyes* Hope everyone has a great day!
