So, here I thought I'd finally get to that elusive 60 mark that I've been toying with all week today. Did it happen? Well, I'm sure you can guess that it didn't.
And I don't know why in the world I thought it would. In fact, I had a gain. SIGH. I know exactly all the things that went wrong yesterday. Nothing for breakfast, no veggies at all, no water (BIG no-no), protein count way too low, carb count way too high and snacked a little late last night.
So, what did I learn? A ton!!! Was it worth it? Heck no! I'm totally disappointed. Those stinkin' Special K Cracker Chips and McDonald's Sweet Tea (worst offender by far) was not worth it. Will I do it again? Probably. Because here's the thing, we are not perfect!!!! I'm hoping that this tool will constantly be a reminder to me of the way I ate before the surgery so that I never eat that way again. Is it ok to have a sweet tea every now and again? I think so. Everyday? No, definitely not.
So, I've started my day off right today. It's a very rainy day here. Dreary and cold in fact. I grabbed my blender bottle, 8 oz. of skim milk and one scoop of chocolate Body Fortress Whey Protein for my breakfast and shook it to death. On a totally unrelated subject, my protein shakes have been really lumpy lately, is that due to humidity? So, I'm going to work my water in the best I can and eat my protein today.
What's on your menu today?
