Hooray! I lost .9 pounds. Almost one whole pound!
Thoughts about the show:
Talk about your Karma, dude. Melissa should have realized that the show may have the "game" aspect in it, but most people are doing it to lose the weight. And friendship is way more important than money. Right? Right? Right. I was glad they voted her off. I was also THRILLED that Sam got immunity! But the best realization came at the end of the show when I realized Melissa is a lawyer. And even though she did crappy things and is not a favorite of mine (or anyone's), I was glad to see that her family and husband love her. She definitely made some big mistakes on the show, but she can't be all bad --not if she has that much love in her life.
Thoughts about weight loss:
Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred is KILLING me! And I love it. I did it Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Monday, and yesterday. And I shall do it tomorrow...and the next day...but not everyday. Because my muscles need to rest!
I bought some wheat! And a wheat grinder! No more white flour for us, thank you very much. I also bought Quinoa! I have no idea how to use it, but I will learn! Recent discoveries that have made me happy, happy, happy:
*Cereal is expensive. It's actually cheaper to make my kids breakfast in the morning. Lately we've been having pancakes, or eggs, or berry smoothies, or toast, or....that's about it. I haven't come up with anything else. This is HUGE for me. I have always been a very big fan of the breakfast cereal. In fact, breakfast cereal has always been a part of my life because I have two working parents. I'm not against cereal! I love it. Love it. Still love it. The only reason I made this change was because I realized the cereal I was letting my kids eat was AWFUL. So, I started buying good cereal for them to eat. Which automatically equated expense. Thus the change.
*Berries in salads constitutes goodness. Here is a salad recipe I usually eat:
- Diced Tomatoes
- Romaine (or green leaf lettuce. or red leaf. Or whatever lettuce you want)
- Sprouts (alfalfa is good)
- Avocado (unseasoned --just cut it up and throw it in!)
- Shredded carrot
- White onion (just a little)
- Chopped Green onions
- Broccoli florets (optional: I don't use this as often)
- Fresh Blackberries
- No dressing! If you have rinsed your veggies, the tomatoes, blackberries, and avocado will give you enough moisture that you won't need any. It's heavenly!
*I made homemade chilli yesterday using real tomatoes. It was AMAZING. If you want the recipe, let me know.
Okay, so how did you do? How goes the exercise? The weight loss? The eating?
