Yesterday was day 1 of my 3 rest days this weekend.
Confession: It almost felt weird not doing anything yesterday. But it also felt great! *lol*
I rolled out my calf.
Watched some movies with the boys.
Had ice cream. (Oops! *lol* One "dirty" cheat, I guess.)
Resisted the urge to snack.
Went to the grocery store and spent too much money again. *lol*
Made 2 things for this week's snacks - Ground Chicken Muffins and Pumpkin Protein Bars.
My foot is already starting to feel a lot better and I'm pretty happy that even with the cheat and the high calorie day yesterday, I did alright calorie wise. There were plenty of reasons to snack. Weekends are always the hardest...but I held tough.
Breakfast - Eggs and Oats with some of Xylitol Brown Sugar Blend
Snack #1 - Cut up Chicken Burger with 1/2 WW sandwich thin with mustard
Lunch - 1 c Ground Chicken 3-Bean Chili with a salad with Lite Raspberry Walnut Vinaigrette
Snack #2 - 1/2 c cottage cheese with jello mixed in and 2 Pumpkin Protein Bar Squares
Dirty Cheat - Small French Silk Pie Blizzard
Dinner - 6oz Cod with a bunch of asparagus cooked in a foil pouch with EVOO, salt, pepper, and Italian Spices (Dinner was SOO good! Even Ethan ate some!)
Calories for the day: 1801
And I drank a TON of water!
Today I'm going to try to stay on task yet again. Mr. Scale likes the change and I should have a more than decent weigh-in tomorrow (actually, I suppose my weigh-in day should be switched to Monday, as that's when I started). If I can tough this out a few more weeks, I should be rolling into where I should be and on again to more success and victories.
Also - I tried a new jello mix in my cottage cheese yesterday - Sugar Free Red Raspberry. SOOO good. My cat liked it too as I caught her trying to eat my snack before I sat down. *swats Tigg*
When I announced yesterday that I planned on "dirty cheating" with ice cream, Hubs said, "I want ice cream too...and Little Caesars." I explained to him I could have one or the other. I told him I wouldn't stop him from getting pizza, but I could NOT have any. My beautiful husband looked at me and said, "Well, I'm not getting it then." :) He didn't want me tempted. He didn't want it to have to be an issue. He said the same thing I've been telling myself about my cravings. "I'll just have it another time."
The only thing I forgot yesterday was to take my vitamins. By the time I remembered it was too long after I ate and I didn't want to upset my tummy. I'll try to get them in today. Which reminds me - I'm almost out of Glucosamine.
Today is rest day 2.
I'm happy to say I'm feeling much better today. More rested and my muscles are finally getting back to normal. Think I should be good to hit the gym Monday evening. (Hate that I have to swap my workout to the evening, but I have to fast in the AM for my health screening at work in the AM. Going to have to be brilliant about my breakfast and take in my eggs and oats to cook in the microwave for right after they draw blood.)
Hope everyone is having a lovely weekend!! Looks like I'll be at the grocery store at least once more this week as I'm almost out of eggs. (Me eating eggs all the time has prompted both boys to want omelets. *lol* Logan made himself a 6-egg omelet the other day. *face/palm* I tried to explain to him that I have 6 egg WHITES, not full eggs. No WAY anyone needs 6 full eggs, especially a 12-year-old who isn't trying to become a bodybuilder. *sigh*)
No work this weekend. Probably a good thing because it will add that in after I'm through with my 2nd week...I should be able to take the baby steps I need to get adjusted to a life of crazy always busy chaos.
