After spending over two hours spewing on my blog yesterday, it was time to put myself to work. After canceling with Jamie, my trainer, last week, I was looking forward to getting back at it!
In order to eat like he says I should eat, I’ve determined it’s best to eat at 7:00 am, 10:00 am, 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm and 7:00pm. This won’t work everyday, but at least if I have some guidelines, it helps.
Here is what I found in the fridge at 7:00 am……
Needless to say, I ate nothing. So much for plan A.
At 10:00 am, I did remember I could cook up some oatmeal and add my PB2 powder so I could get something in my tummy before a workout!
Greek Yogurt with PB2
I did get to the store and I plan to cook up lots of chicken breast, then individually freeze them so I will have no excuses for a while to not get in plenty of protein!
Refresh…I can eat 26 points a day.
I can earn Activity Points by doing exercise, and eat them if I choose.
I have an allowance of 49 points that I can dip into if I chose.
I should drink a minimum of 6 (8 oz) glasses of water each day.
The food I ate and it’s PPV
Breakfast = Oatmeal, PB2, Coffee with Milk (6)
Lunch = Mixed Greens, Grilled Chicken, Salsa, Light Sour Cream (6)
Snack = Whey Protein Shake with 1 T. Chia Seeds and Frozen Berries (4)
Dinner = Applebee’s Parmesan Grilled Shrimp (Minus some of the rice and sauce) (8)
Snack = Plain Nonfat Greek Yogurt with 2 T. PB2 (4)
Total = 28
Workout with Trainer
Walk 4 Miles
How many glasses of water I drank today = 10
Activity Points Earned Today = 6
Activity Points Earned This Week = 24
Remaining points from my 49 Points Allowance = 27
ALCOHOL consumption = zero
I made this goal sheet SEVERAL months ago. I have one copy inside my pantry and one copy in my exercise room. My goals have changed just a bit, (I try to exercise 6 days a week, I aim for 12 or more glasses of water, and I am definitely NOT drinking 1 day a week) but my “Obstacles” and my “Why” remain VERY much the same!!
I realize that when I DO reach my goal of 150, this will still be my life in order to maintain. The Healthy lifestyle is just that, a Lifestyle, but it will certainly always have some challenges!
