4 days under my belt and I am feeling pretty fantastic. 4 days completely OP. 4 days of eating healthy and counting points. 4 days of exercise and determination.
I secretly weighed in this morning and I am down 2.5 lbs from Monday. I'm sure most of it was water retention but hey, 2.5 lbs is 2.5 lbs. I won't count my official weigh in until Monday when I weigh in at the gym. So hopefully that 2.5 lbs may even become 3 lbs by Monday. Although I'm going in with no expectations since tomorrow night may be a night filled with wine so I'm really not sure if that's going to throw me off for a few days. (now throw ME off, but throw my weight off) There's no stopping me now. On Day 25, I've decided to treat myself. Haven't decided on what yet but most likely a new pair of runners or a new gym outfit.
My exercise this week has been great but I'm hoping to step it up a little next week. This week:
Monday: 15 min elliptical warm up & 45 min Body Sculpt Class
Tuesday: 50 min Yoga class
Wednesday: 15 mins elliptical warmup & 45 min Body Ball Class
Thursday: 15 min on treadmill and bike & 40 mins on elliptical
I'm taking a day away from the gym tonight but tomorrow night will be filled with tons of dancing since we are going to a local pub that has a great band playing tomorrow night.
This week a friend at work brought in a cookbook for me to browse through. It's call Crazy Plates and it's by the same girls who wrote the ESBM book. I made the meatloaf last night and it is SO good. Scott's been asking me to make meatloaf for him for seriously about 3 years but I've never made it before so I just kept putting it off. I only tried a small bite since I only had 0.5 pt left but Scott had a whole piece and said it was excellent. I'm forgoing my usually Friday night homemade pizza tonight since I'm saving up my flex points for wine tomorrow so I thought I'd make it for tonight for dinner. Anyone else have a meatloaf crazed hubby at home - e-mail me and I'll give you the recipe. So good.
Other than than my night out tomorrow night, this weekend it pretty ow key. tonight we are going to either go to a movie or rent Good Luck Chuck. Sunday I have a bridal show to go to for the whole afternoon.
Congrats to Christy and Sonya who are kicking butt this week!! You girls are great motivation!
Randi also asked a great question: If I do go off plan for one day...should I just not count that day or do I start back at 0? Any suggestions? (Although there's NO way I'm falling off the wagon) I'm thinking that I should go back to 0. Gives me more motivation to stay OP!
