Day 1 was a success. I stuck to the plan all day and got a good 55 min sweatfest at the gym last night. 25 mins on the bike (ramping up for the Spin class that starts on March 3rd YAY!) 18 mins on the elliptical and 12 mins on the Stairmaster. Felt soo good afterwards.
Around supper time I started the "how am I going to get through this first week on this strict plan- I want my 100 calorie packs back" mentality but I went downstairs and turned on the computer and read all your comments and I was totally back in the game. You ladies are so supportive! It's exactly what I needed to get me through Day 1. I was surprised at how many people said it would be easier to stick to plan while Scott was away and in most cases this would be correct but I am one of those lucky little ladies who has a hubby who eats super healthy (with the excpetion of the occasonal weekend blow out) and he is constantly encouraging me to make the right choices and get to the gym. Before he found out he was going to Kansas he was even trying to think of ways to change his eating so that it would better fit with my SFL plan. Sweet, right?
I made the most amazing Salmon last night. This was my first time ever even buying fish let alone trying to make a little gourmet meal out of it. I wrapped it up in tin foil, topped it with EVOO added a little salt and pepper. In a bowl I mashed up a cracker and some Epicure lemon dill spice and threw that on top of the salmon. Cooked it for 20 mins and then opened the tin foil and broiled for a few mins. It was sooo good. It was honestly like something out of a restaurant. I also bought some Haddock...any ideas on how to make this super yummy? I'm a total fish virgin.
1/2 cup vailla yogurt
1/4 cup cottage cheese
mixed with a cup of fruit
1 1/4 oz of low fat cheese
1 cup of pasta
2.5 cups of veggies
3 oz of chicken
1 cup of baby carrots
4 oz chicken breast cut into strips. Dipped in fat free Italian dressing and rolled in Italian breadcrumbs. Grilled on the George foreman grill. These are soo good. I tried them out last week.
1 tbsp light Ranch dressing for dipping.
2 1/2 cups of veggies (maybe a salad?)
1 1/4 cup of fat free jello OR popcorn.
Exercise today will consist of 50 min Yoga class at lunch and we are expecting a storm this afternoon so I think I'll head home after work and check in with Billy Blanks after supper.
Is it odd that I already FEEL like I'm losing weight? It's only been 1 day! I can't wait to get on the scale on Friday! (been a loooong time since I could say that eh?)
