Easter, what did you do to me? All my good eating and exercising went out the window for 5 days. Yech.
My future mother in law gave me a basket of candy, chocolate, cake, etc. This beautiful Easter basket contained so much goodness that the goodies literally levitated from the basket and into my mouth. My teeth barely did any chewing. Ladies and gentlemen, I think I may have my ticket to fame: food levitation followed by complete disappearance of all food in the room.
I feel gross. I gained a couple of pounds. Now, weight fluctuates during the day, so I might have not actually gained that much, but I gained a couple FOR SURE. And on top of that, I just feel like yuck.
But I went to the gym today (Thursday). And it was actually a great workout. The last time I went was Saturday- a great 2-hour run/weight training workout with J. So, yes, it took me a few days to get back into the swing of things, but I went to the gym. And since this is a lifestyle change, that's all I can do. I can't give up like I used to and just say that I effed it up, so it's not worth a damn anymore. All I can do is get back on this ride and keep on truckin'. So, guess what, BEEP BEEP, coming through!
Here is my food diary for today. I tried to keep my caloric/fat intake low in order to shed the Easter calories which are probably on an egg hunt somewhere in my rather larger behind.
-2 1/2 servings of Cheerios multi grain with 2% milk (J introduced me to this and it is sooooooo deicious and filling!! I may never switch back to buying Honey Nut Cheerios! *gasp*)
-60 calorie Light & Fit yogurt
-1 Nature Valley Honey& Oats bar
-3 oz salmon with salad (avocado's, tomatos, lettuce, raspberry vinaigrette) and cheesy mashed potatoes (from scratch)
After dinner snack:
-3 Dove Dark chocolate miniatures with decaffeinated tea
Oh and a weird thing happened today. During my drive home from the gym I started craving a tomato with salt. My brain kept repeating the word tomato tomato tomato tomato and I could almost taste it in my mouth. So I did what any girl with a craving would do: I stood over the sink and ate a tomato with salt. What the heck? Who craves a tomato?! Was my body low on Lycopene or something? haha
Have you had any weird cravings lately?
