The Good: Once again, I had another great day thanks to my planning! I am one of those people who sets a goal and does it. I have a slight problem of perfection syndrome. :) If I say I am going to do something, I am going to do it....and I am certainly going to do it if I have a plan in place for the week.
I went to the gym and had a great workout today. I once again did 30 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes on the treadmill. I am getting stronger every day and I can feel it. I do keep trying to do what I did before on treadmill and elliptical and I just can't get there yet. I have to remind myself that I am 30 pounds heavier than I was when I was at the gym before and that it will take some time to get back to where I was. It is hard because I knew what kind of numbers, as in miles and calories burned, I could push out in an hour and now I am falling short of those numbers. Each day I know I am only getting stronger which is great and I know I will be back to where I was soon enough.
Tonight I was fixing sandwhiches for my school luncheon tomorrow and I put one aside for dinner tonight. A cook never serves something without tasting it first. ;) I found the recipe on Pinterest but made it a "healthier" version. It was absolutely DELICIOUS!! I will be adding it to my list of favorite recipes! Here is the recipe:
4 large chicken breasts
1/2 cup of shredded parmesan cheese
1 cup of light caesar salad dressing
whole wheat buns
1/2 tsp ground pepper
Cook chicken for 6-8 hours on low in crockpot. When finished, shred the chicken into small pieces into a large mixing bowl. The chicken should shred really easily because it will be very tender! Add salad dressing, pepper, and parmesan in bowl of chicken and mix all ingredients together. Place chicken mixture on bun and top with lettuce. Very easy and VERY delicious! Enjoy! :)
The Bad: I was CRAVING something sweet tonight after dinner. I was hoping the fruit I ate would help curb my appetite for sweets but it didn't. I was however very proud of myself because I walked out of the kitchen and went to take a shower. Before I knew it, I wasn't even thinking about eating something sweet anymore. Progress is being made one choice at a time! :)
The Ugly: I cannot hardly find anything to wear in my closet. I wear the same things over and over because all of my "new" clothes were from when I lost weight and they don't fit very well right now. It certainly is not fun to wake up in the morning and chose the same things over and over to wear. I can't wait to drop the 30 pounds so I can get back into my others clothes!
