Before breakfast, I hopped on the scale and was HAPPILY SURPRISED at a 2 pound loss!!!!! It’s been ages since I’ve seen a good number like that. I’m very very happy today. I don’t know what prompted the scale to finally move in a good direction. Maybe going back to counting calories diligently has paid off. Maybe adding cycling to my routine is helping to shake things up. Maybe the fact that I’m trying to avoid the Candy Room http://hundredtenpounds.wordpress.com/2010/03/24/temptations/ at work is the key. Maybe the medication that caused this weight gain in the first place is finally out of my body. Maybe it’s limiting my alcohol intake? I don’t know but I’m happy with the results.
APRIL’S WEIGH IN: 156 pounds!
Breakfast is a toasted English muffin with 1 serving of peanut butter spread on it:
Then I topped it with slice of a half a banana:
Mmmm…one of my favorite breakfasts! Check out my “Weigh In” page and see my measurements. Now it’s gym time!
Today’s food is pretty plain. This morning I had Cream of Wheat for breakfast. I was running late (and I was hungover) so no picture.
My morning snack was a banana. It’s about 11:15 now and I’m starving. 🙁 I hate when that happens! To curb my hunger pains, I had a glass of Crystal Lite peach iced tea.
Today is my rest day; partly because it’s gross outside and partly because I’m tired from last night’s festivities. It looks like the rain is here in Portland for another 10 days. Bummer!
Lunch today is a sandwich thin with light mayo, a little spicy mustard, and roast beef and a Fiber bar.
AM Snack: 105
PM Snack: 80
I have no idea yet what is for dinner!
Lunch really hit the spot today. I went outside into the rain to go for a walk. Or try to. I walked a little bit and then found a parking garage with a ton of stairs! I decided to walk up and down the flight of stairs a few times to get my heart rate up (and it did!).
I walked by a pretty church and took a picture:
The rain was coming too hard by this point so I turned around. I’m very ready to go home and get into jammies!
