Monday, July 13, 2015
So yesterday I was in a mood and I was like I don't want to workout but then I was like yes I do then i was like just get on the bike. LOL. I was proud of myself I got on it and I paddled my little tail off. I did 15 minutes on it. I am going to shot for 2 workouts on it today. I think i can do it. I am off all week so I should do it. I just had a really good breakfast so after a little while I will do my 15 minutes on my bike then I will do another 15 after lunch today. I think that is how I will do it. I may even do a 15 after dinner but right now I am just looking to do two.
So this morning I get up and I take my shower and I am thinking I want to see how my little brown dress looks on my now that I have lost 11 lbs. So I put it on and I start to laugh. Why you may ask am I laughing. It is because my right arm is really tight in the dress. I have no idea why I have not been doing arm workouts. LOL. I have been meaning to but I just haven't done them yet. I still do not look how the dress looks on me but it is okay to wear around the house. I am not sure if it is the cut of dress I do not like or what. I think I will like it more as time goes on. I have another dress way in the back of my closet I need to get out. To see how it looks on me too. But that can wait. I am not in a dress mood today. I just wanted to see what this one looked like. And I still do not like it. But I like it more then the last time. LOL so that is good.
So I did my Sparkcoach this morning and I had to laugh. My action plan for today is to look up three restaurant menus and then find the healthy choices and write them down for the next time I go out to eat. The reason I think this is so funny is that the other day my hubby and I did the shopping but forgot to pick up dinner for that night so he said we would just go out to eat. So I looked up every restaurant in our little town and I picked out all the the healthiest things to eat on all of them. Wendy's had the best. He asked me what I found and I told him. But I told him I would rather go to the store and just pick something up even if I had to cook me something because the salt was so high in all of it and so was the fat and I was getting the healthy stuff from there. Plus I told him it would be cheaper to go to the store then to Wendy's because for my meal it was going to be about $15 that was with out taxes and I was like that is to much money on something I can make at home for less. I would rather go shopping again then waste money on fast food. And he was like that sounds good to me. So off we went to our store. We walked in and they had changed it around right in front now is a salad bar. Where you can make you own salad. Thank God I know how to make a salad. I was so in the mood for one too. So I pick out baby spinach, and cherry tomatoes and cucumber and chick peas and black olives some onion and no dressing. I made it so when I got home I could measure everything out too. I did really good. I also got me a frozen dinner I figured this could not hurt me. I looked at all of them I was wanting Stouffer's Lasagna with meat & sauce and that is what I had. Plus we got him and my youngest son all something to eat and it was under $20 so if we had went to Wendy's like my hubby wanted to it would have cost us a ton more then that. It would have easily been $40 or more. I know we have done it in the past before I started this new way of taking care of myself. I am so happy I safe my waist line and our wallets from this dinning out thing. Yes it is okay to eat out from time to time. To treat yourself to something special, I am not saying it is not. But I am very picking on what I want to put in my body now. I know what my weaknesses are, and it is sweets and fast food. I still have my ice cream. I got some one serving frozen Greek yogurt cups. And I have frozen fruit on hand for smoothies. and if that dose not do it then I will buy the per packaged little cookies but they can not be over 140 calories or I will not buy them. I only say that because I have some trail bars that are 140 calories that I love. LOL. I do not eat them everyday they are just if I need a quick boots before a workout or if my sugar is a little low I can eat one quickly and be able my day. I am going to buy some popcorn the next time I am at the store. My dad showed me a way to make it in the microwave without and oil or butter. It was really good. You get a paper bag, little for lunches and you put you popcorn in it and he puts two staples in the bag and folds it down. so the popcorn does not pop out. I was like that is going to fry your microwave but it did not. lol. It was really cool the popcorn popped and we had us a yummy snack. So that is something I am going to be making myself from now on once I go to the store. LOL.
Well that is about it for me today. I have sat here long enough talking I need to get moving on my bike. I hope everyone has a great day today. I know I am going to make it a very good day today. Hugs and love to you all.
