(Let me start by apologizing to anyone reading these posts...I know they are boring, but I need the accountability to help me with my goals and to see where I make process over the next few weeks. So Sorry of these bore you to tears.)
Today was a pretty good day. I finally got an email back from my boot camp instructor. She agreed that I needed to write everything that I eat down and believes I will see a difference. Also to make sure I am doing my cardio at a minimum 3 times a week. Basically all stuff that I already knew and agreed to do over this next month already. She really believes that I can get below 200lbs...I guess I just need to start believing it myself. It's time. The best part about her email was that she recognized how hard I do try at boot camp and she thinks that I can work just as hard at home too. I am starting to believe this part. I just need to rekindle that inner will and stop beating myself up when I do have an off day or make a mistake.
Today I feel like I made good choices. We even had lunch out at a Thai restaurant but I choose to have an appetizer that consisted of 8 prawn shrimp and a good helping of bell peppers, onions, basil and garlic in oyster sauce and Thai peppers. It was delicious and less than 400 calories total from what I can gather when I put it into sparkpeople. I did allow myself to have less than .5 cup of ice cream but from now on until I am under 200lbs I am seriously going to be more thoughtful of not having these indulgences.
Dinner was a large salad with just a little bit of balsamic vinegar on the side, a small portion of homemade meatloaf and an ear of sweet corn. It was good.
So all in all I finished around 1450 calories which is in my range.
I did 60 min boot camp.
I set some goals... including getting my journal ready for tracking as I go starting tomorrow, and I set goals for tomorrow.
I am not going to measure myself again until right before I start boot camp again on the 21st.
I have to be very mindful of exercising the next two weeks without boot camp to hold me accountable and help me out. but I believe I will do it.
