So today was sort of a crazy day! Maybe it was returning back to work after the Holiday? Or maybe it was the fact I stayed up waay too late last night (and again tonight) trying to fix this blog thing. It also didn't help that the day went by crazy fast! I did manage to get some things done and stay semi on track. I watched Princess Diaries with my nieces (I love spending time with family! Plus we had a sleepover last night!) I went grocery shopping and got a bunch of food for $100 bucks! which hopefully I can make food for my parents off of :). I got a bunch of fresh produce and things that I can create new dishes with. I don't want to get burned out on the normal stuff.. (so send me some yummy, low-cal recipes if you firstname.lastname@example.org)
But, I kinda had a day filled with blonde moments. Like I made a fresh fruit smoothie to drink on the way to work, packed my gym bag, grabbed my giftcard, and placed them all next to the front door.. but forgot them on my way out to work! Dah Sam! I also forgot a few little things throughout the day at work!
Inspiration for the day: Michelle Aguilar was on NBC's Biggest Loser and won. She is currently on the cover of US Weekly. I think she was absolutely gorgeous before the show and is so after! She is my inspiration of the day because she is what I am now (at her beginning weight) and weight skinnier than I would hope to be after! We can do this ladies! Even if we don't have Jillian Michael's yelling in our face :)
Breakfast: 2 eggs ( 1 normal, 1 egg white) *10am*
Lunch: 1/2 a turkey wrap (wheat tortilla, turkey, tomatoe, lettuce, and dry pesto sauce) and a sliced tomato *2 pm*
Dinner: 1 cup of steamed rice, miso soup, salad (with creamy dressing that came with it, but I only used a little), CA hand roll *about 630 pm*
Snacks: 1 apple (1 slice with peanut butter, Yum!) 1 banana
Water: 4-16.9 fl. oz. bottles. (67.6 oz= a little over 2 liters)
Exercise: stretched for 15 minutes
Steps: I bought a pedometer over the weekend. I checked it in the afternoon and it was almost 1,000 steps. When I check it after work, it had 0 steps! Somehow it had deleted! So I will include this as part of my log to remember.. I need to fix it tomorrow! Dang it!
*I still need to include my measurements, and figure out how to do the inspiration board thingy of pics of myself. I did a bunch of research last night.. just reading different posts and articles about weight loss. Hopefully I can post my findings soon. I will also take a most recent (starting point) picture to begin this journey!*
**Don't forget ladies, You are beautiful! Big, skinny, short, fat, blonde, brown, purple, etc. You were individually made, individually perfect for His beautiful eyes. Don't doubt that just because you have some extra meat on them bones, that you are any less pretty than the girl who should put some meat on her bones! Plus, I watched a top ten list for 2009.. and we're in luck cause "a woman's curves" were on there! (I'm pretty sure they didn't say the whole bakery like I have.. but close enough ;)**
Isaiah 40:31: "Those who wait for the LORD will gain new strength; they will mount up with wings like eagles, they will run and not get tired, they will walk and not become weary."
Phillipians 4:13: "I can do all things through him who strengthens me."
