What I Ate On Monday

So I feel I made some really great choices yesterday and ate some yummy foods. I have been thinking a whole lot more about what it is that I am putting into my body as far as processed foods, sugar, fruits, veggies, etc.

So I thought I would do a time line of my day. No pics though.

4:30 AM: Wake up, get ready, and drove to boot camp. I usually always lay my gym clothes out the night before so I don't even have to think about it in the morning. Does anyone else do that? I also can't eat before I have a heavy workout. Even when I eat late the night before and exercise early the next day, my body is not happy.

5-6 AM: Boot Camp

6-7 AM: Arc Trainer

7-8:25 AM: Get ready, maybe check my e-mail, and eat breakfast. Yesterday's breakfast was plain old fashioned oats and whole strawberries. Strawberries were not mixed into oatmeal. And lots of water.

8:30 AM: Work, Work, Work.

10 AM: I thought about not eating a snack because I was going to get an early lunch. I decided to have one anyway. I had a 100 calorie pack of baked cheetos in my desk and a diet. Talk about the most unnatural snack possible.

11:20-1:30: I took a long lunch at Pei Wei with a co-worker and a former co-worker. Former co-worker was almost 25 minutes late because of traffic, so didn't end up eating until later than expected. I had the Thai Dynamite Chicken with brown rice, a side of steamed veggies, and some edamame. I only ate about half my meal. Leftovers!

1:30-5 PM: More work and a snack around 3:30 of cherries. Cherries are my new obsession. They weren't on sale this week, so I paid about $9 for a bag of them. So worth it though.

5:30ish: A snack of strawberries

5:30-6:30: I was more tired than hungry so I took a nap.

6:30: Dinner of mixed greens, cucumber, tomatoes, a few craisins, and light champagne vinaigrette dressing. A serving of jalapeno Kettle Chips.

7-7:30: Homework.

7:30-8: Started to pick out clothes for my upcoming trip to Europe.

8-11 PM: I hung out with a friend. Ate some Peanut M&M's probably about the size of a regular pack you would get at the gas station, probably a little more actually, but not binge worthy at all. I probably didn't even need to eat them.

11:30ish: bed

I live an exciting life. I know you are all jealous ;)

The rest of the week will be a little bit crazier.

Tonight: Cee Em Tee Award show. Yeah for free tickets!
Tomorrow: Eddie Vedder at the Ryman
Thursday: Class
Friday: Morning: Volunteering at the Local Public Radio Pledge Drive and then a meeting about my board internship with the station President/General Manager.

Friday Evening/Afternoon: leave for my Cincinnati weekend with my blog buddies Krissie, Nikki, and Fat Bridesmaid!

So many people seem to be struggling to lose weight . . . I just thought I should share my new favorite weight-loss system - Isagenix. My family (parents & siblings) found this after they moved away. At first I hesitated trying it . . . even after they ALL lost weight. But finally my mother convinced me, and starting last month, I began the system. I can't believe I have already lost almost 20 pounds! I was just shy of 200 lbs, which was the heaviest I have ever been, and now . . . 182.4 as of yesterday morning! And its only been 7 weeks. And my husband has lost even more than me! Two months ago I thought this was impossible. I have pain in my hip and neck that really limit my exercise, and I work full time, which makes it hard to find the time to constantly buy and prepare healthy meals. But Isagenix is fast, easy, and very healthy! I spend less on isagenix meals then what I was spending before, and the meals are super fast to prepare. The website is http://reachyourdream.isagenix.com . If you sign up as an associate you get to buy at wholesale prices, which is a lot cheaper! No obligation to sell it, but you can earn $ signing other people up if you just want to. Any questions, just ask me! reachyourdream.isagenix@gmail.com
