Biting the Bullet

Here I am again today-as promised! I even sucked it up and got on the scale this morning. I'm still down 12 pounds from where I started. I did get on the scale after my workout this morning (yes, you heard right, I went to the gym this morning too!) and I heard somewhere that you're not supposed to weight yourself after you workout b/c you're always heavier. As I write this, I'm actually wondering if that's true or if I just made it up. I'm going to go google it. Hang on...

Ok, so thats kind of BS. It really doesn't make that much of a difference and our body weight fluctuates throughout the day (including before and after workouts) so I'll just accept it and say I'm down 12 pounds still (which means I've gained back about 8 pounds). But hey, I've kept it off for months and months so that's something right? RIGHT?

And I logged my food yesterday all day, like I promised I would. I've decided that I'm going to just take this one day at a time.

We haven't been grocery shopping in awhile so we've been eating a lot of non-perishable food (and eating out..but hey, it was restaurant week AND I got a new job) and my body is definitely missing the roughage. I felt like my stomach was waging war against me yesterday, shouting "Give me vegetables! I need a banana!" We didn't have much in the way of veggies at home so I gave it a Trader Joe's chicken burrito and some sauteed portabella mushrooms. It wasn't psyched. I'm making up for it today with lunch.

I made us some tasty healthy turkey spinach wraps for lunch (plus a bag of carrots and peppers for me) and insisted that Andrew not forget his apple. (He'd eat 2 bags of microwave rice for lunch everyday if he could..) I actually really enjoy packing lunches for us. Mostly because it gets me out of doing the breakfast dishes, but also because I feel like I'm contributing to our health in a productive way. Plus, it saves money. And who doesn't like saving money?!?

Two and half weeks till my birthday! I'm going to be 25 (again!)

two bags of microwaveable rice? not exactly--i'd prefer general tso's and a pint of beer every day.

Hey, no one said pack lunches had to be boring! I enjoy packing my lunch for the same reason you do. No dishes for me :P
