Sunday wrap up

image

Last week, we got free breakfast one morning because it was “Health Ahead” day. Yummo! I had a veggie frittata, apples with peanut butter, a small quesadilla, and infused water.  It reminded me that I like water with cucumber and lemon. It’s time to break out the infusion pitcher!

I had a lot of spinach with my lunches last week, with grapes, carrots, raisins and string cheese for snacks.

For exercise, I did spin on Tuesday, muscle attack Wednesday, treadmill on Thursday, and walking on Friday. Yesterday I walked a few miles at a community art fair, and today I rode bikes with Jeff.

Today was mostly on track. For breakfast, I had toast with peanut butter and bananas, with a heap of grapes on the side.  Lunch was chocolate cake and cheese puffs. Dinner is back on track with a BLT salad, made with spinach, avocado, tomato, and a bit of bacon.  For dessert, I have geek yogurt topped with raspberries.

Coach Nicole is easier than Coach Jillian

I haven’t been taking at all well this week (as you may have noticed by the lack of updates).  Today, I’m back at it with new goals on the board, getting a work out, and packing lunches.

The problem

The solution

I used the a la carte option with a Jillian this morning.  I did the warm up and the abs/shoulders circuit.  I couldn’t get through all of the compound moves right now, so I modified as needed. I’m still hot n sweaty, so I think modifying worked.  😉

Here’s my goal board for the day

Great week

I’m going on day four or five without chocolate and it’s great!! Now I just need to eliminate other bad decisions from my diet… Like soda, French fries, and other mega-calorie foods.

Breakfast today was a sausage, egg, and cheese English muffin sandwich. 

Fitness so far is a half hour brisk walk.

No pictures of either since my phone battery was too low.

This just in: New streak started

Chocolate and soda free, one day and counting 🙂

Found a possible dress for a friend’s wedding…

And had veggies for dinner. (I also had ham, but that was a quick slice at 7pm so that I didn’t give in to chocolate cravings).

Happy Easter if that’s your thing and happy Monday if it’s not 🙂

We spent Easter with my side of the family and alternated between watching The Bible on History channel and playing games like cards against humanity and ladder golf.

I had strawberry short cake for dinner.

Speaking of which, here’s my latest weight loss command center:

I glued white boards to the chalk board and wrote our names in marker.  There may be more embellishments later, but for now it works.  Today, we were able to check off kitchen, shopping, study, 30 minute activity, and brush teeth.
