NROL - Week 1 - Sunday

Weigh in day. 156. I'm a bit disappointed that it wasn't more, but heck, 2 pounds is perfectly normal and healthy. I don't know why I'm upset about it. I saw the number and thought, "That's it?" But it was a weird week for me - I'm sure I'm retaining water from the new routine and I didn't do as much cardio as I should have and I had a couple higher calorie days. No! My calories have been fine! I need to stop thinking that I need to go super low with the calories! That's how I get into trouble!

I'm making slow progress with the binge eating book. I should have taken notes as I've read. Now I'll need to go back and read Part I again and make notes to blog about. There have been some really interesting point and aha! moments, but I don't have the ability to remember it all and synthesize it at a later time. I have to make notes and write as I go, then piece it all together. But really, it's been interesting.

Last night, I had a dream that I ate something I shouldn't have, and in my dream, I was really stressed and trying not to binge. I overate the bad thing (2 servings of it) but did not binge in my dream. I woke up hungry and anxious. It took a lot of control to make my normal breakfast.

I had a big test of will power today. Normally, when I go to Walgreens, I buy candy bars and eat them on the way home. Today, I had to run up for barbecue sauce for my husband, and I just knew I was going to blow it. Imagine my surprise when I left there with only a few bottles of diet root beer. And the sauce, of course!

Oh, grrrr! I just noticed that the nutritional information for the Nature's Own Double Fiber Wheat bread has changed since I first entered all the information into my nutrition tracker!!! I have no idea how long I've been under on my counts! It's not by a lot, but still!!

I reviewed 2 workout dvds today - Billy Blanks Tae Bo Cardio Circuit 1 & 2. Both look like great fun! I might try #1 tomorrow, instead of Turbo Jam. I've never done a tae bo video before.

b - scrambled eggs w/ chipotle sauce, coffee w/ cream, toast w/ butter
l - chicken salad
d - grilled cheese, onion & tuna sandwiches (on whole wheat buns) + a bite of my husband's pork ribs (I didn't log this)
snack - yogurt
