Today was the usual tough Wednesday with Kickboxing AND Mountain. We didn't have to do pool if we didn't want to because of the weather, but I did. There were only about 6 or 8 of us in the pool. It was nice.
We had another field trip today. Paige, the Program Director took us to the grocery store to teach us how to shop the perimeter of a store and only go down an aisle is you need something from that aisle. She showed us how to just shop for a couple days. Healthy people only buy enough for a meal or two. She said it is NOT a good idea to make a 4 serving meal and say you'll heat up the rest for lunch because realistically you'll eat another serving that night. Use the butcher and get exact portions for just one or two meals. Use prepackaged veggies and fruit. She showed us how all butters are bad, even the ones that seem good. She said butter is butter is butter. Same with sausage, its sausage, it still has salt and fat in it. She showed us different breads that say all the right things in their title but then the bread is 100 per slice. That's 200 calories before you even put anything on it. Then she showed us better bread that is 80 calories for BOTH slices. So she proved you have to read the labels.
We had our yummy cafe salad today. It just looks like a bowl with a tortilla in it as a bowl filled with lettuce, but hidden inside is tomato stuff, guac, black beans, chicken, rice.... its SO good.
Then we went to Target. I had to get my weekly $50 in blister paraphernalia.
Unfortunately my daily calories DOES include my resting rate, but still, I'm happy with it.
So many people have been telling me to keep blogging after I leave. I think my boring life of working from home would not be very entertaining. I guess I could keep blogging about the rest of my weight loss journey.
