Sooo...it's going to be tough to get the first five pounds I think. I can't believe it's been three weeks already! Clothes are definitely feeling looser, but any movement on the scale is stalling. Gah. It didn't help that I had to go to Van on Thursday for a seminar...it's hard eating well when I'm away from home. I didn't eat as well as I have been and definitely didn't drink enough water - I'm parched and I'm puffy around the waist and eyes again. I headed to the big city Thursday afternoon...as soon as I got in I went to the gym and worked out, and then headed up to my room to order up some dinner. Hmmm...not a whole lot of healthy choices. Why is that?! I don't expect hotels to be totally low fat or anything but why is everything dripping in cream or butter?! I ended up ordering a salad with salmon and prawns ($30!!!! highway robbery!!!) and a butternut squash soup - which was delicious, but packed with cream. Sigh. Waste not, want not, right? I ate it but left half. Double sigh. I hate wasting food.
The next day was harder. I had a healthy breakfast of oatmeal, fruit and hard boiled eggs and I squeezed in a workout in the morning. Lunch was a bit more difficult to work around - it was pasta, pasta, pasta...no protein. I pretty much had to have the pasta otherwise I would have only had salad and that wasn't going to keep me full until I got home to Victoria at around 7:30. So I gave in and ate the friggin' pasta. But...I didn't have any dessert! Go me.
Anyways, back on track again for next week - lots of water, balanced meals and gobs of exercise...first weigh in is Nov 27th, so look out for the results in a week! Will she or won't she get her $50 back for 5 pounds? Drumroll please....
