I did good at lunch. A turkey burger on Kopplingers whole wheat all natural bun (I love their bread too. It is the cleanest store bought bread I have found) with a bit of fat free mayo, lettuce, onion, tomato, bacon and jalepenos.
Also had some all natural chips and veggies.
I did have one root beer.
When the cake was cut, I had just a bit of ice cream. No cake.
Then it went downhill. I had one of my favorite drinks. Limeade vodka and Sierra Mist. Then I had another and another. I think 4 in total the rest of the evening. (No buzz because I drank them slowly thru the evening). That night I had a regular hamburger because the turkey ones were gone. Same stuff on it as my turkey burger. And some chips. And potato salad (I love potato salad!). And a piece of cake...and more ice cream. Ugh. Why do I do that? I felt guilty. I didnt keep my eye on the prize and I overindulged...again.
This morning after Xavier was up at 5:30am (ugh!) and Norah was up at 6am,
So I made sure I peed...heaven forbid I have the extra weight...and I stepped on the scale.
I LOST weight?
That energized me right there. It didnt matter that I didnt sleep at all last night. LOL. I was ready to face the day with three kids.
Got the kids breakfast and took them downstairs in the basement with me so I could do Day 9.
Finished it with no major problems out of the kids. That made me feel excellent! Finished the workout without much of a problem too. I even bumped up my weight on my rows to 10 lb weights.
Now I am having my Shakeology. Funny how I am starting to get used to the taste and even enjoy it. My packet of it is dwindling down so soon it will be time to get a different kind from the gym.
Tomorrow is my last day of level 1. Then onto level 2. I feel good and I am ready for a new adventure and challenge.
Tonight after the kids are in bed, I plan on actually doing my 1 hour zumba cardio dvd. That will probably be my routine
Oh and just as an FYI...After having a funky toe nail since I ran my half, it finally decided to come off last night. Didnt hurt in the least and I heard that is quite common.
That is my most excellent news for the day. Hope your Monday is equally as great!
Tip(s) of the Day:
From Self Magazine
Fake it- save 780 calories
Dreyer's/Edy's Slow Churned Light Ice Cream Neapolitan- It has 90 calories per 1/2 cup, so you can add 1 tablespoon chocolate chips and a dollop of whipped cream and still chill out for less than 200 calories. Hell, go crazy and put it in a cake cone; it's a measly 17 calories more.
Take it- save 720 calories
McDonalds Vanilla Reduced Fat Ice Cream Cone- The Golden Arches isnt known for its ice cream, but perhaps it should be. The smooth soft-serve option tastes decadent, but it cuts 17g saturated fat and 79g sugar compared with other restaurant versions. Give it a swirl this summer!
