Ya'll would be so proud of me!!!

(Said in my best southern accent!)

Day one on Core--PERFECT!!!

Let me tell you how my day went....DH was sick. So I had to pretty much do everything last night. I had a massage from 4-5 (well the girl was late getting here so it was more like 410-515). Then I had to get ready and go pick up DS...then had to get to a friend's house who went to Trader Joe's for me yesterday. Spent way too much time there, but had a nice visit. Had to stop on the way home at CVS to get DH Nyquil. Walked back in the door at 7. Made dinner--Burrito bowls for me, tacos for everyone else. Cleaned up dinner while DH thankfully gave DS a bath, got DS ready for bed, then LEFT TO GO TO THE GYM. I told DH last night that I was going to the gym....I didn't care if I got there at 9:30. I got there shortly before 9, did the elliptical for 33 minutes, came home and took a shower and went to bed. I could have easily not gone to the gym, but I made a commitment to myself that I am going to get in 5 days of work outs this WW week. I told myself I deserved that time and I am proud that I made the effort to go. :) Oh and I want to work out Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for my 5 days. :)

Here is how yesterday went. Like I said, day 1 on Core was perfect and easy! I had tons of fruits and veggies. I am so proud!!

B--Cream of wheat made with milk, half a banana
S--1/2 can of pineapple
L--large shrimp salad w/ FF balsamic vinegarette and green beans
S--Banana and other half can of pineapple
D--Burrito bowls (don't know why they are called this, but I got the recipe from a good friend and it was ALL core). AND I have enough left overs for lunch today. :)

So that was 8 servings of fruits and vegetables, 160 ounces of water and 1 serving of milk. Going to try to get in more milk today. Key word being TRY. I am not a milk drinker, unless it has chocolate syrup in it. :) Or if I have Oreos to dunk in the milk....and Oreos aren't core!

Core gurus out there--how do I count APs? Should I eat some non core foods to account for those?? To me, that seems to kinda backfire. I don't want to put processsed foods in my body if I can avoid it. I am trying to get through today and tomorrow (before dinner) so when we go out tomorrow night (Logan's Roadhouse) I can have a roll and/or onion petals with my steak and salad.

Thanks for all the good luck wishes about my secret yesterday. I do have friends IRL that read this, but I am pretty sure none of them will say anything to anyone else who knows me IRL. family won't find out. That's one surprise I hope to keep under wraps. Although I am getting major pressure from them to have another one! So it won't be too big of a shock to them. But if I don't get pregnant soon after my sister's wedding, then they are going to be on me even more!!

I am taking DS to his first movie today (free movie at the local theater--Over the Hedge) and I am taking our own popcorn too. So hopefully this will be an easy day again. Tomorrow is going to be hard b/c we are going to the pool and I don't know what to take that I can eat that I won't have to heat up. I am thinking about just taking a bunch of cut up fruit and a bag of popcorn and that being lunch. We'll see what I can figure out today. Have a great day everyone!!!

Congrats on your first core day and for getting to the gym last night...that is a huge thing. Over the Hedge is way cute. I've only seen parts of it but I was laughing the whole time!! Have a great day!

Wow, great job on getting your exercise in after such a hectic day. It sounds like you are really liking core. Continue to let us know how it goes because I am interested in giving it a try also. Have a wonderful day and I hope your dh feels better soon.

I am so proud of you! Way to rock it Hard Core! ;o)

AP question - I usually don't eat mine, but you're proally getting a lot more that I do. You could always use flavored yogurt, full fat or low fat cheese, or eat another potato/pasta serving to use them up. That way you won't be putting processed stuff into your body.

I'd make a grilled chicken salad with a side of fruit to take to the pool. It's my favorite summertime Core lunch!

Great job on your first day of core!!! I did core my first 2 weeks on WW and really enjoyed the new challenge. Suggestion for lunches on the go. Get some chicken and boil or grill it (I think you can even buy the pre-cooked stuff in the deli section these days) cut it up and eat it cold. It is really tasty with a little FF Italian Dressing or BBQ sauce or even plain. The one thing I tried to do while I was on core was get in protien at every meal, kept me satisfied longer and I saw a big difference in my losses when I did this.
Good luck!

Hey! You had a great day! GREAT JOB!!! You are inspiring me to get even closer to all Core. Seriously- great job! You can use AP's for the same day on non-core foods just like you use your 35 points for non-core foods. You have to use them the same day you earn them....and use them if you want! That's why they are there! I hope you have another great day!

congrats on your first day on Core. I am excited to see how you do on it, as I am thinking of switching too..

Congrats on doing so great on your first day of Core. I am REALLY contemplating it but still unsure about it. I need to look at all the foods again. Keep it up, I can't wait to hear the results or week 1!

Colette said...
