I had a good day yesterday. Here's what I ate:
7AM: coffee with sugar free creamer (I had given this up, but have gone back to it temporarily. I just could not get my coffee to taste "right" to me with other stuff).
8AM: Medifast oatmeal with a splash of almond milk
10AM: Medifast hot cocoa
Noon: Medifast chicken noodle soup
3PM: Medifast chocolate pudding
6PM: I made a lean, grass fed beef pot roast in the crock pot with sliced onions, garlic, and mushrooms. I enjoyed 5 ounces of roast, 1/2 cup of mushrooms, and a cup of delicious mashed cauliflower "potatoes" (recipe on my recipe page, link above).
8:30PM: Medifast brownie
I drank lots of water, walked a mile or two, and did all of my arm exercises that I posted yesterday. I only did about 1/3 of the PT exercises. It is harder to fit those in, for me, because they require more space, more positions, more equipment, and more time. I will keep working on it.
I guess my strategy right now is "quit thinking about it and just do it, and let the plan do the work." Just let it happen, stick to my eating schedule and my exercise and let the time go by and the pounds fall off. Whenever I start thinking about it, I make myself think about something else, like my kids or a project I need to do or training my dog. I am trying to break the focus on weight and weight loss. It is easier to just MAKE A DECISION ALREADY about what you are going to do, just do it, and quit messing with it.
Watch this space!
