Happy Wednesday everyone! It is all down hill from here. :)
I'm really proud of my food choices yesterday. While everyone at my table enjoyed fried pickles and other Cajun deliciousness, I had grilled fish and green beans. I didn't even steal one pickle!! :) In the afternoon, we had a birthday celebration with some cheesecake. I figured that since I ate so well and lunch, I could spring for a small slice of cheesecake. They weren't very big and they were cut into 12 small slices. I'm super glad that I snuck a peak at the nutritional information because they were 470 calories each!! WOW! How is that even possible? I chose instead to have 1/4c of pumpkin spice ice cream and 2 chocolate puffs for a total of 208 calories.
That served as my afternoon snack, so I ate my scheduled dinner when I got home. I had allowed for a serving of peppermint ice cream after dinner, but I decided that I didn't even need it. I like when things are rolling along like this. A time will come along where I won't want to make good choices, so I really have to take advantage now!
Did I tell you all I'm trying to learn to like oatmeal? I don't like it, but I'm going to work at it. Today, I'm going to try the Cinnamon & Spice kind for breakfast. Next week I will get some things to add to it like peanut butter or fruit. Do you have any ideas how to flavor up instant oatmeal?
I earned 30 points yesterday!! That's a record for me. YAY! I was hoping to be under that 190 mark this morning, but I was 190 exactly. I will take it. Maybe tomorrow!
I got up for CrossFit this morning. I am very sore! We did Cleans today which is lifting the barbell from the floor to your shoulders in rack position. Basically, you had five rounds of one minute of doing as many as you can and then 3 minutes of rest. I really pushed myself and I think I did a good job. I was bummed when I realized that I'm not going to be able to CrossFit on Friday because I have to be in Dallas by 8am Friday. Bummer!
My goals for today are to walk at lunch, keep my calories in my target range and to do something productive after work. I had thought about going to CF tomorrow morning since I can't go Friday, but I Jazzercise tomorrow night and I just think that is too much.
Here is today's new outfit:
