A million more to go.
Yesterday was a success if I do say so myself. Well, except for the 6 chocolate kisses that were not part of the plan. But yesterday was WAY better than I have been this past week.
Breakfast: oatmeal, 1 T raisins, 1 T almonds, oj
lunch: arroz con pollo
Uncalled for snack: 6 chocolate kisses
dinner: angel hair pasta with onions and tomatoes, tuna, 2 tostadas (fried plaintain)
I think I should explain what type of eating plan I am trying to follow. Well, I'm not really trying to follow ANY plan. My biggest obstacle is stopping for breakfast or lunch at the McDonald's or Burger King by my work. Besides being so bad for me, I have been wasting way too much money there. So, one of my goals is to cut out fast food from my menus. And if I must, then my choices should be good ones. Second, no more junk food. Chips, cookies, candies, sodas, etc. I just eat way too much of them and they trigger some kind of monster in me to go on an eating frenzy and I just end up feeling like caca.
Basically, the plan is to eat less move more.
And my first attempt to move more was pretty pathetic. I did the elliptical for, get this, a whole 12 minutes! Go me!! I don't know if it's because I'm out of shape or because the elliptical machine is not working properly but yesterday, I about killed my calves and thighs. To me it feels like the tension setting on the elliptical is too high, but it is on the lowest setting. Hmmm?? I can't complain though because it is a really good machine and it was free. I guess I'll just have to gradually work up my endurance on that machine a little bit at a time.
(Please don't laugh at my pitiful 12 minute workout.)
