Jillian Kicks My Butt - Week 1 - Sunday

Weigh in day. It's my first full week of not measuring and tracking. That, combined with the massive increase in exercise (including a change of routine) and good old Aunt Flo, I expected my weight to be up. Fortunately, I was wrong and I'm down half a pound to 132. I guess I'm glad it's not a gain, but I'm getting really, really impatient now. I know this is probably going to be the slowest phase.

I went grocery shopping this morning and bought some fresh vegetables. I chopped them up and I'm ready to just grab some when the mood strikes. Some time this week, I'm going to the Farmer's Market to get more produce. I can't believe how much it costs to eat healthy. I could have bought 3 boxes of mac and cheese for what I paid for 1 green pepper. Our green peppers in the garden are not growing, and something keeps digging up some of the other stuff. Now that we're composting, I don't feel like I'm wasting the produce scraps anymore. My husband went out and bought some pepper & tomato plants, and something to (hopefully) stop whatever from digging up the plants we started in the cardboard egg containers. Whatever it is, it loves those containers.

7:30 AM - whole grain waffles & homemade pork sausage

10:50 AM - grilled cheese sandwich & raw broccoli, cauliflower & green pepper

2:00 PM - Fiber One cereal w/ skim milk, homemade granola bar

4:20 PM - baby carrots

5:30 PM - grilled beef tenderloin w/ grilled vegetables in light garlic butter

9:00 PM - ice cream w/ homemade whole wheat sour cream cookies; I'm having this after I post my blog (going to sit and watch The Apprentice finale) but I'm going to measure it all out so that it's just one serving and all will be good.

Two cups of coffee and 120 ounces of water today. I just didn't have it in me to drink more water and I wanted some diet Coke with my dinner, damn it!

You are doing so great Becky! That's so cool that you didn't track calories this week and still went down 1/2 lb. You're such an inspiration...
