108 left to go my lovlies! How has it been for you?! I would love some updates on your first couple of days!
I was about to type that yesrday wasn't very productive but you know what.... in the spirit of being more positive and staying motivated, it was productive!
In the morning I worked out... hard... really hard actually. I neglected to tell you guys that I accidentally had my program on the Wii Active 2 set on medium rather than easy... BIG mistake... a painful one but I made it!
Then I got my mom showered (because she is currently my little invalid, read this about half way down if you want the story) which was a workout in itself. Then I got myself showered and primped for a meeting I had. Which I drove 40 minutes for and then got cancelled.
But all was well because my business partner and GFF Laura decided to have a girl date at Panera and chat. I didn't look up the nutritional facts, but I made what I felt were smart choices given the restaurant. I had the You Pick 2 with a cup of Tomato Soup and Half of an Asian Chicken Salad. I figured it was safer if I avoided the sandwiches with all that bread and cheese and mayo. I drank water with lemon and declined a pastry treat for jus $.99 with my meal.
We sat and talked and ate slowly and I really enjoyed my food, which I am now convinced has got to be one of the secrets to weight loss. Because at the end of my meal I was really satisfied with my food in a way that I am not often satisfied while eating in a 5 minute binge and run.
For "dessert" we went to Starbucks where I had a tall (small) mocha frappaccino light with nonfat milk and no whipped cream. Sure no dessert would have been more in line with a "diet", but this is still my life and if I want to have Starbucks on occasion, I'm going to figure out how to do it without being riddled with guilt.
So I indulged a little, but I did it within reason and I had a great workout before. At the end of the day I felt good, not guilty, And that my friends is a win.
Stay Healthy, Stay Hydrated!
