Today has been very successful so far. It started bright and early at 5:30a.m. with my kiddos waking up. ;-)
I made a green smoothie with fresh strawberries, 2 bananas and spinach, however my box of spinach went almost all bad over the weekend. =( I just bought it on Thursday, but it was so bad I had to pick out the good leaves and there weren't that many so the smoothie was fairly watery. My kids still drank it down, and I had probably 15-20 ounces.
I did my Jillian video; it wasn't as hard as I was expecting and I even used my 3lb weights. WOOT!
Then we took a walk to the park and played for an hour and walked back. For lunch I had a chicken breast with BBQ sauce. We all took a nap and when I woke up I was STARVING. Everything BREAD sounded sooooo good. I thought about making a homemade loaf for dinner tonight. I thought about the leftover pizza in the fridge. I thought about the Cheetos in the cupboard. I thought about the banana bread on the counter. All things bread were calling my name; no, they were YELLING my name!
I got up and made the kids some apple slices with caramel sauce and had 1/4 of an apple myself--sans caramel. Then I ate an orange. Then I came on here. =)
I'm still feeling pretty hungry so I think I'll go eat another chicken breast because I do not want to eat bread! Why? Because I did gain a pound today on my weigh in. =( I'm at 167. But, honestly, I wasn't sad to see that number. I was glad it wasn't higher and I *know* it will come off with the hard work and healthy eating I have planned.
So, so far so good today! Let's keep this ball rolling!
