AAAAH, the weigh in…**SIGH**

17 Apr

dammit, i weighed myself this morning, and i only lost 1.5 lbs.  so disappointed.  i know my body is a bit leaner, but it sucks not to see the numbers go down on the scale.  i'll measure myself tonight again.  it's been about 2.5 weeks already since ive been going to the gym and trying to watch what i eat.  maybe it's all the tamarind, LOL.   aah, but on a serious note, if i want to get back to pre-wedding weight, i really got to start cutting out the temptations.

5:00 – did the cardio self challenge on the bike for 25 minutes.  this was killer because i was doing uphill intervals.  worked on shoulders for 20 minutes.

7:05 – a banana and non-fat strawberry yogurt

10:00 – low sugar apples n cinnamon oatmeal

11:30 – did boxer shuffle and jump rope intervals for 20 minutes.  did 8 self strengthening exercises.  2 sets each for 40 minutes.

12:45 – gobbled down my salad with fruit, and some pretzels

5:30 – i made some hummus and it was soooo yummy.  i put it on a whole wheat pita bread.  this was my snack before dinner.  hopefully i won't eat as much when we're at roux.

8:30 – so let's start with the healthy food that i ate at roux.  i ordered a cup of gumbo and it was pretty flavorful.  i ate half of it.  i ordered a crab cobb salad, YUMMY!  here goes the bad…i had 2 corn muffins.  it was ooooh soo good.  i used the second corn muffin as a chaser to my drinks.  they were so warm and fluffy, it was addicting (and i ususally don't like corn muffins).  neways, the next bad thing was ICE CREAM!  coffee ice cream was sooooo good!  and then there were the drinks.  shared a hurricane with the girls, had a lychee cosmo, and a shot of grey groose(chaser was cranberry juice).  i prolly consumed 800-900 calories.  but i still didn't go over 2000, so i guess that's good.

i'm nervous about the run this afternoon.  we'll see how i do.  i woke up this morning, but my chest was still sore, so i decided to just sleep. HAHAHA

7:00 – i need energy to get through my run today!!!  noah's good grain power bagel with a tall skinny vanilla latte extra foam

11:30 – YAY!!  i did the run.  it was easy…but i started to feel a little cramp during the last mile.  got through it though.  i think our time was between 35-40 minutes because i don't know when we started.  my co-worker said we started around 11:40.  WOO HOO!  i feel great!

1:00 – 6" turkey sub on honey oat.


5:50 – did 8 SELF strengthening exercises(2 sets each).   i was suppose to go to yoga this evening, but flaked!  oh well.

7:00 – ate the salad that i didn't eat at lunch.  when tran came home i had 3 slices of his london broil..SOOOO YUMMY.  the bad part is i was munchin' on tamarind all night.
