I have made it a goal for this week to go swimming 3 times, Wednesday am, Friday am and either Saturday morning or Sunday evening. I gotta admit I am very excited about challenging myself in this new venture. Swimming is a real struggle for me and I am excited to master it! Well maybe not master it, rather grab it by the shoulders and give it a good tousle to show it I mean business though I may not win the fight, just that I won't get knocked out in the first round.
Today has been a day of new combinations.
For mid morning snack I went back to another new discovery. Now at the time of putting the the second half of the banana in the yogurt, I had no idea that this picture was going to look so phallic. But, yeah well live and learn. LOL
Lunch, well yeah sadly lunch is nothing new, just an ol' faithful,
I had just packed one snack, however at 2pm I had eaten it and by 3pm I was fading energy wise. Seriously I love love love working so close to a grocery store, and love the fact that there is no vending machines at work. It makes avoiding temptation so easy. I did have to fight off temptation by slapping it in the face while at the check out. So basically work can be a lose setting. So when I was starting to get hungry, I took this opportunity to go and get my few groceries I needed as well. LOL. So I picked up my groceries, and simply by walking around in the grocery store made me more alert (happens shopping in S. 'shawa). So at the checkout I was eyeing this KitKat sensations bar. It was relatively little and I thought hey what the heck if its one of those 100 calorie chocolate bars I will treat myself. Psh! It was something like 170 calories. 170 calories for a chocolate bar I had never tried before and wasn't sure if I would even like it. Anyway, I did buy myself a second snack.
3 stalks of celery and 1 tbsp of Kraft Peanut Butter (originally packed) and 1 Banana bought (I'm full of potassium today second banana).
What another beautiful day again today. Sadly I didn't even get to enjoy the fresh air that came with it because I am tucked away in a back corner of the office with no windows or fresh air.
This is what I made,
After dinner and I was off running to the gym, I had step class, and sat in the sauna for a few.
Total calories eaten 1,409 (without exercise I'm allowed 1,380), I burned a total of 563.
A decent day to say the least.
p.s please note that since last Monday I have lost 2.8 lbs, that is almost 3 lbs in 1 week! Whoot!
