Day 3. You have to be kidding me?
ok..so day 3 and already feeling really good and finding things to keep my mind in motivation mode.
Started the day by taking the time to make breakfast. Two pieces of toast and two eggs.....and the cup of coffee...which I just used a via starbucks packet...they are actually really good! So my mom headed over to the house so we go to the mall and exchange some left over christmas presents. It ended up being great motivation for me....We went to the Nordstrom B.P and I couldn't help but look at all the cute clothes knowing I WILL be going on a shopping spree 6 months from now! I know I should be more excited that I will be healthier, feeling better...but damn it...it's been so long since I have been a size 6/8 I can't wait!
Felt a little bummed...yet again today I got so busy I went long periods of time with out eating....ate breakfast around 10am...by the time we were done at the mall it was 4pm is..so decided to get a spinach, tomato, pesto sandwhich at starbucks on the way out...only 410 calories...it was yummy. By the time I got home I had to get the kids fed and off to bed....so I didn't even eat my sandwhich until 5:30ish ...my so called lunch. I really have to bugger down and get this meal plan under control so I am eating 1200=1500 calories a day....but this blog is about being honest and that's what I am going to say ..the truth. So don't worry...i am not trying to starve myself...just lack of planning...with out trying to make bad choices.
Got the kids in bed before 6:30 pm...and was really motivated to go work out...did some things around the house...and finally off to the gym! 9pm I arrive...and no crap....membership is gone...can't work out or join until tommorow.....!!!!ARRGGGG!!! You've got to be kidding me???? Maybe it was a sign when my ipod was dead...lol. On to workout tommorow then...only this time I will be going first thing in the morning!!!!
I still have yet to go grocery shopping. We literally have bread, butter, eggs, coffee creamer, shrimp and apple juice in our fridge!(oh and condiments). So after being denied by the gym I headed over to borders to look at some dieting, motivational, educational...whatever you want to call it..books. Oh my god...seriously there is like 100's....how do you know what to pick....? I must have sat there for an hour thumbing through mutlitple books. Again...this time around I am not following a so called "diet" or "Program" ...but love to get idea's through mulitple area's. Interesting the first book I open was "eating for your blood type" and I open right to the O blood type...which is me...and it says "we" are more likely to have Low thyroid function and problems which inhibits weightloss....for those of you who don't know I do have a thyroid disease called "Hashimoto's disease"(hypothyroidism). It's basically a auto-immune disease where my body is trying to attack my thyroid because it thinks it's foreign...so I take medication to help regulate it. Then I start to think? Well...what if I do everything right and I still don't lose weight!!! I found it interesting in this book it says foods that work against my chemistry are wheat, peanut butter and cheese...some of the big ones...and guess what? Those are literally in my top favorite foods! ha! Anyway..I did not buy the book this time...maybe next? The one that caught my eye was the "eat clean diet". I started thumbing through..it seemed very educational and has some great points about how bad processed food is...and how to eat clean for our bodies and health....do I think it's realistic? Maybe? I would love to eat and get used to "clean" natural foods and keep it that way over time....so we shall see! Well..until tommorow...i have a grocery list to make and some reading and planning to do!
