I'm just not ready to take pictures of myself or post any specifics.
But I am thinking about it. And I am doing something.
It's dreary and disgusting around here right now, so walking won't be happening. But I am promising myself to do *something* today. Whether that's crunches during TV or an aerobics thing on TV (I'm sure they have those, right? I've never looked...)
The food: I am weak. :) Just being honest here. The good news is that the Cookies & Cream ice cream is gone, all that's left is the black raspberry (which I hate) so I won't be tempted in THAT arena. The chips - which usually don't tempt me - got the better of me last night.
But taking Mrs. Stethoscope's advice, I wrote down everything I ate one day (meant to the next day, but I can still tell you what I ate). I'll tell you what, writing down everything you eat makes you stop eating everything in sight. You just don't want to write anything else down after a while. Especially if you can see a pattern of snacking needlessly after a good meal.
Some food discoveries I've made:
I need to start buying 1% milk again (skim grosses me out, but 1% I can handle). I was buying 2% or whole --- that needs to stop! It's just not necessary.
If you throw your black bananas in the freezer, you can cut them in chunks, peel them, and add them to your smoothies. :) I don't have room in the freezer for ice (and no ice machine). So this worked for my "need something cold and chunky" ingredient. It also helps me get through the half a dozen tired bananas that have been thrown in (wedged in) the freezer.
Smoothie: blueberries, strawberries, frozen banana, and plain yogurt. Yummy!
Wheat toast. Not my favorite. But this morning one piece of wheat toast and a piece of string cheese got me full. I guarantee a slice of Wonder bread can't do that.
I'm fighting the urge to bake. The fact that I haven't done my dishes today (and that we literally ran out of spoons this morning....) is helping me stop myself. :)
So, just letting you know what's going on here. As always, your helpful comments are appreciated. I read them, other read them - share away :).
