Hi. Welcome to my boring blog. Feel free to post helpful comments, words of encouragement, or recipes you think might fit the plan I'm using.
Today I have gotten no out-of-the-ordinary exercise in. In the interest of honesty, the ordinary doesn't usually include that much exercise, either.
Breakfast today was a fruit smoothie (half a banana, some strawberries, a cup of plain unsweetened yogurt), two slices of a tomato in two eggs (one yolk)--scrambled, and a glass of skim milk with whey protein mixed in.
Lunch was a salad (cup or so of romaine mix, cup or so of spinach, some red pepper chopped up the night before (I'm guessing about a serving's worth, but maybe less--I hate trying to figure out servings, by the way), about a cup of grilled chicken (maybe more... but will be less tomorrow, as there was too much chicken left over when I ran out of greens during lunch today), and some balsamic vinegar and olive oil), and two cartons of skim milk in the cafeteria.
After school, I had a handful of mixed nuts (sea salt, no peanuts) and an apple. For dinner I had bottom round steak and fifteen spears of asparagus, and a serving of wine. To top it off, I had half a regular-sized bar of dark chocolate.
Some thoughts: I need a couple of small containers to bring the vinegar and the olive oil to work. I used a couple of old yogurt containers, but the lids don't want to stay on, and they're awkward to pour from in the cafeteria.
I have to bring an apple or something to school. With "lunch" happening at 10:10 in the morning, by the time my plan/meeting time rolls around at 1:00, I'm hungry. Seriously, how I managed to not go down to the snack machine in the teacher's lounge is one of life's great unsolved mysteries. I'd like to claim willpower, but I think I was just too busy. However, this hunger did stop me from staying too long after school doing work I should have stayed to do.
Oh, and if you're concerned I'm overdoing it where the asparagus is concerned, let me explain: I love asparagus. Short explanation, I know.
More importantly, it was on sale the other night and was about to go of sale, so I bought two... um... bunches (is that the word?) and didn't think about the whole "asparagus goes bad" thing until I got home. But seriously, this stuff was SUPER el-cheap-o.
I woke up late this morning (and had kids coming to my room to serve detentions), so I didn't weigh myself. It's okay, because I can just make it a Friday morning ritual now. However, don't look for me to share my weight. I've got a system I'm going to use, where 10 is my goal. I'll let you know tomorrow where I start.
That is: if I wake up in time to weigh myself, I'll share it my "starting number".
