Oh yes, I did start it! Sha-zam!
Water: Yes. Which is an improvement.
Calories/Nutrition: Brunch – choc soy milk (sorry, I like it) and Jimmy Dean D-Lights turkey sausage breakfast sandwich, which is good, btw. Yes, I have no compunction about my processed food. My afternoon snacks are planned as carrots unless I get crazy and wash a red pepper, which I might do. I’m a junkie for peppers. I’ll also have a spoonful of reduced fat Jif creamy peanut butter around 4 p.m. because I will be *dying* for protein by that point. Dinner – We’re probably/possibly going out somewhere on our last kid-free night.
Worst Thing Today: It’s our last kid-free night, and the week has been FILLED with work for me, more so than usual; that bites.
Best Thing Today: It’s our last kid-free night. 🙂 I miss the little bugger — ya know, sorta. So far, I haven’t wanted to bitchslap anyone who works for me. This is a major improvement in the week. Hopefully we’ll have a nice night too 🙂
Notes: I am now 2.5 days without a single swig of Pepsi. Actually did great the first 36 hours or so, didn’t even want it. At this moment, I’m biting my lip just thinking about it. Deep breath, reminder of how much better I feel without all that sugar in my body.
Water: I’m working on my 2nd bottle of 24 oz, so about normal.
Calories/Nutrition: Nothing out of the ordinary; yogurt, cereal bar, tuna fish on crackers. I’m trying to be more careful as the weekend approaches since that seems to be my Danger Zone.
Worst Thing Today: I found out a cousin (the one I’m closest to) has the real-life, no-joke freaking Swine Flu. He’s on day 13 already, so hopefully it’s almost out of his system, but still: freaked me the hell out.
Best Thing Today: The weather for once is not being an asshole, so I spent my lunch hour walking all over the lovely sprawling campus. There were many stairs involved, but I made it over to the main university book store, where I bought a Glenn Beck book for Brian and a Tori Spelling book for myself. Can you tell the difference in our reading preferences?
Notes: More about walking: since the weather must’ve gotten my memo(s), it’s been downright pleasant the past few days with 60’s in the early morning and high 80’s with not-so-bad humidity in the afternoon. I’ve been taking full advantage of this while I can. Also I’ve noticed SC is much hillier than FL, so I can actually feel it in my calves. It’s been awesome. Even more awesome? I remembered to pack my spare deoderant this morning. Score!
Water: My friend Jen bought me a 34 oz Bubba Keg so I’d stop being Environmentally Evil with my habit of taking a styrofoam cup from the cafeteria for my water every morning. Most days I have a 24 oz cup of tea (still in the styrofoam, I’m a bad person), I drink a whole Bubba, and I have a bottled water at home during/after my workout. So, yeah. I drink enough water I think.
Calories/Nutrition: Yogurt for breakfast, salad and cottage cheese for lunch, berries for a snack, and chicken stir fry for dinner. SparkPeople says: 1300ish calories.
Worst Thing Today: Really, just the fact that I have to be at work.
Best Thing Today: Ever closer to our vacation, and my boss is out today which means I am SO leaving at 4:00. I worked through lunch, so it’s a wash, but it feels all WIN to me!
Notes: I’ve been really tired lately, which might be because I’ve slacked off on my vitamins. On purpose – I seem to have developed a reaction to the Niacin I was taking. So until I get it all out of my system, I won’t take my multi, which has Niacin in it. Tired also = not feeling like workout out. I did weights on Wednesday but just managed a 30 minute walk yesterday, will probably only manage the same today… but tomorrow I’m planning on extended bouts of weights and cardio.
