Challenge 1 Day 18

Since I started this challenge, I have been waking up when my husband gets up for work. I do a few quick chores, then exercise. Yesterday, I put dishes away and checked on my son (who was still sleeping) and I saw that he was near the edge of the bed (he sleeps with us, yes, at age 3). I knew he'd fall off if a) I didn't wake him up or b) get into bed with him. Guess which option I chose? I fell back asleep until he woke up, about 45 minutes later. I immediately hopped on the elliptical, but I was really cranky, figuratively kicking myself for slacking. Not that it was really slacking, but I had been really proud of myself for actually getting up and doing it right away for almost 3 weeks. I used my aggression to push myself during my cardio session. So I guess it worked out.

Food was decent. I made some great roasted carrots for lunch.

4 oz apple
3/4 cup nonfat cottage cheese
16 oz coffee w/ 2 tbs creamer

1 tbs light mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
4 oz chicken
10 oz carrots (a lot, I know, but they were really good, sprinkled with sage, garlic salt, and pepper and roasted until tender)

1 tbs light mayonnaise
1 tsp mustard
4 oz chicken
1 low carb tortilla

McDonald's Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad
1 packet Newman's Own ranch dressing

1 whole wheat mini bagel
1 tsp mustard
4 slices turkey
