Feelin' it

I really feel like the Biggest Loser Challenge is exactly what I've been needing and I can't thank Angie enough for taking this on. I have a renewed excitement for getting on the scale this week, and I know that having all you guys to answer to is what will keep me on track day in and day out.

I have yet to journal my food today (about to when I finish this post), but I'm estimating 1400 calories again (tops). Started off with my faithful oatmeal breakfast, yogurt for a snack. I have finally gotten my hands on the apple turnover yoplait and if you haven't found it, go NOW and get it! Best yogurt ever!!!

I took a cue from a friend today and took a lunch to work consisting of bell peppers and turkey deli slices. I added 2 triangles of the good ol' laughing cow for good measure. PERFECT size lunch for me. And quite a change for me without any bad carbs to speak of. Ok, I admit, I had a 60-calorie Jello pudding for dessert. But still...not too bad!
I had sushi for dinner - mostly sashimi plus 10 pieces of sushi.

But the kicker for today is that I made myself get on the treadmill tonight. Just 30 minutes, and I mostly walked, but still, it's better than nothing. I've been letting the exercise slide lately. For the next three weeks I'll be back home (not on the road for work) so it will be easier to kick some gym ass. and boy, I plan to!

Just two more days here in Columbia, MO. Can't wait to get home, see my honey, my puppies, and get on the scale! :D

Love the motivation!!

I just signed up for Sparkpeople yesterday after reading your post and it's fantastic!!! What a great little resource. It's so easy too! Thanks for the idea.

sounds like you are off to an amazing start. Keep up with the treadmill and before you know it, you'll be doing it without thinking about it.

Great job :-)

I had bell peppers with my lunch every day this week and dipped them in homemade hummus and it was totally delicious and satisfying!

Wow, that sounds like an awesome lunch! I am definitely going to try it this week, and the laughing cow - I've never had that! God, or hummus (after seeing Angie's comment)... I'm so excited about trying this new stuff! And I know exactly how you feel about the scale, it's so much more exciting getting on and knowing that you've tried hard all week. Can't wait to see your results! :)

I always have to remind myself that 'just 30 minutes' is better than nothing! I don't know why we act like that when 30 minutes, even just walking, beats doing nothing!

Sounds like you're doing great!
