Day one and two are in the books. Day three is crusing along quite nicely. I was a little worried when a co-worker brought cupcakes in...but I looked at my points (and what I had left for the day) and I pondered...and i had a small cupcake. I actually did HAVE the points/food allowance in my food budge. I am still actually under budget! WOO HOO. So I had a little cupcake and I'm done. Today really is crusing along. I made it to the gym this morning before work. 20 minutes on the eliptical. 40 minutes on the exercise bike (very important). I will be attending zumba after work. So 120 minutes of exercise today....and keeping my eating under control...that's a fabulous day.
How am I managing my food? I am sitting at work and planning out my eating for the NEXT day. I print up the page with my eating plan and I post it on the fridge door. So this morning when I woke up to make breakfast I was able to look at the paper and know exactly what to make. Exactly what I could eat....everything. I also already knew exactly what to put into my lunchbox for my work lunch. It's all there. If it's on the page, I eat....if it's not...I don't! So tomorrow is already planned and printed! Will things change and skew my pages. Yes, absolutely. I fully expect that to happen. But I can go with the flow....work it in. Manage! :-)
I'm trying to get back into riding shape. After much careful consideration Todd and I registered for Pedal to Preserve. We have 3 weeks. We haven't been on our bikes much....time, todd's oral surgery, my cold....etc etc etc has kept us away. We are not even sure that this ride will happen for us...we'll see.
