Here is today's blog. Again...still trying to figure myself out. I might stay on my own here. I read too much if I am on Roni's site and I am already lost in the blog list over there (not the most updated one, but the active list). I am going to stay here for now....
Another GREAT day on Core! YAY!!!! Tomorrow is WI so I am hoping for some good results. I got in my 5th work out in my WW week so I am proud about that. Here is how yesterday shaped up:
B–cream of wheat made with milk
L–Leftover Turkey Meatloaf, with green beans and hominy; watermelon
S–Bean dip and Triscuits (5!)
D–half of a porterhouse steak, sweet potato, and grilled veggies
So that’s 6 fruits and veggies; 172 ounces of water and one milk. Not too bad. :) I got to the gym last night and did another 33 minutes on the elliptical. I am going to have to bump up the intensity on that b/c it’s getting too easy.
I guess I am going to do core for another week. My old leader always said you need to give core 2 weeks to really see results. Although I think I have decided to “take off” the 4th. We are going to a cook out and I know I can’t just eat core foods there. We are going to our neighbors and they hate vegetables! Who hates vegetables?!?!!? I think it’s kinda funny. I am going to take my own chicken burgers from TJs and a pasta salad (hopefully core!). And I would also like to enjoy a few drinks so I am going to TRY to make the best decisions, but you know what? I will be right back on Core Thursday morning. :)
Last night, DH and I had our usual fight about me working out and taking away “his” time. I work out in the evenings usually b/c I work 10-11 hour days on Mondays and Tuesdays. He expects me to get up at the butt crack of dawn (literally, he’s up at 430!) when he gets up so I can work, and THEN go in the middle of the day to work out. UGH. So last night I said (kind of snarky) if I had an elliptical in the basement, we wouldn’t be having this argument. So he finally told me to pick out 3–he wants 3 to choose from. So we’ll see. I am not going to jump on this right away. I am going to look up consumer reports and all that to get the best deal for my money. I will probably be getting a bonus with work this fall and that’s what I would like to do with the money. So he is wearing down…
My 10 year class reunion is supposed to be next weekend (the 14th). We have only had 6 classmates respond–out of 90!!! And of those 6–4 of us are the ones planning it!!! So we are probably going to cancel it or at least change the location. I am sad about it b/c I was hoping to see people and we have put a LOT of work into this thing. BUT, we have decided that we won’t do it again. We (the 4 of us) won’t plan another reunion. It’s too much work and to have no one appreciate it enough to show up–not worth our time or energy. I will still get to see my 2 closest friends from high school and I am THRILLED about that. I love these 2 girls and we have known each other for a loooong time!!
Have a great OP day everyone!!
