Ugh. I was up .4 this morning. I’m getting my period at the end of the week, so I’m sure I’m just starting to bloat, but it’s still frustrating. Hope everyone has a good day!

Yesterday was okay eating wise, I stayed under calories so that’s good. No workout, we had so much stuff to do around the house, so I burned some cleaning calories.
I came to work this morning armed with yogurt, a banana, and a 100 pack of Snackwells pretzels. I left a frozen lunch here yesterday and I plan on eating it today. Darling Husband also took a frozen to work, we’ll see if he actually eats it!

I am down another 1.5 lbs this morning! We did a bit of a workout last night but I ended up hurting my shoulder and stopped early. I feel like I am losing weight pretty evenly but I am not getting toned so I think once I start lifting weights more, I will gain some muscle weight which I’m ok with.
I have to say, I can’t wait for the cleanse portion of the advocare 24 day challange to be over! Tomorrow is the last day and then I can start adding some good carbs back in. Darling Husband and I have already decided we are having some pasta this week with turkey meatballs so I am going to buy Ezekiel pasta tonight (it has no flour in it). Oh how I have missed pasta the past 3 weeks!

I was 237 even this morning after my work out. (up 1.6). I was not so good to myself this weekend, my friend was in town and I used it as an excuse.
Of all the restaurants around me at work (bw3s, wings and rings, o’charleys, applebees, chipotle, bob evans, steak n shake, penn station, mcdonalds), dows anyone know of a healthy lunch I can grab? I forgot to pack today.

I’m hoping this week isn’t a big disappointment. I have bad knees, and one was pretty sore yesterday so I worked from home in the afternoon and kept it elevated with ice and took some ibuprofen. It seemed to work, but I didn’t want to make it worse so I skipped my monday night pilates class. And this morning I had early meetings and wasn’t sure about my knee so no workout. Maybe if I’m still feeling ok I’ll try to squeeze one in tonight. I was planning on a C25k run today, but maybe I should just do some lower impact aerobics. *sigh* IDK.

I am really proud of myself, I turned down Arby’s for dinner last night! Yesteraday I had a doughnut for breakfast (I know, I know), a salad with tuna for lunch, and a baked potato w/ chili for dinner. Drank a coffee in the morning, water all day, and skim milk with dinner. I also did a 30 minute work out last night. Overall, I think I had a pretty successful day!
Today I had 1/2 packet of oatmeal for breakfast (I didn’t intend on only eating half but I was busy and it got cold and yucky LOL) and coffee with FF Creamer. I have salad and tuna for lunch again and veggies and a banana for snacks. I also plan on working out again tonight. Dinner is up in the air so far.
How is everyone else doing?

@KLloyd1 – good luck on the advocare 24 day challenge! I did it earlier this year and lost 12 pounds. I now take MNS 3 vitamin packs, use the meal replacement shakes, and spark up on a daily basis.

@futuremrsb – low impact aerobics are great! high heart rate = cardio, but lower heart rate = weight loss 😀
