I was going to blog last night but since quitting caffeine on Sunday, I am feeling the withdrawal effect super bad yesterday and today. So I just did some reading and went to bed early. I even didn't watch The Biggest Loser like I always do. I just wanted to do an update about what I am doing right now.
I wrote in the beginning of January that I was done with the scale. Boy was that a mistake. Even though I have lost weight since then, 4 lbs, I still felt my clothes getting tighter and my body getting wigglier (not sure if that is even a word). So I got back on the scale and it showed that 4 pound loss. So I'm going back to what I know works for me. I'm tracking my calories and eating as unprocessed as I can.
That being said, it is also the Lenten season. I gave up going out for lunch for Lent. It has always been a crutch for me to go to Subway and eat a foot long sandwich to curb my stress level over my lunch period. I'll be figuring out how to deal with that stress in different ways.
So I quit Subway cold turkey. (I could insert a pun here...but I wont....Cold Turkey....Subway..get it?)
But instead of making this quitting thing such a negative thought, I am making it a positive moment by "Starting Cold Turkey". It was my phrase of the day when I was talking to friends and coworkers about it yesterday. I was overly excited. After reading some blogs on Sunday night, I just felt really motivated. Oh, there's also the trip to the Bahamas thats been booked for six weeks from last weekend and also requires a suit.
So Sunday, I went to the gym for Body Flow, even though I really didn't want to. I worked the moves as hard as I could so I could reap the benefits. I planned my eating for Monday and did pretty well except that I was starving by the time I went to the gym that afternoon. I did an hour on the treadmill at a 5% incline and another 10 minutes on the rowing machine. Boy that hurt after doing all the pilates moves in Body Flow on Sunday.
Sorry to cut the post short. I need to get myself ready for work and prepare my lunch.
