Fat Tuesday is usually just another day of bad eating. Only difference it's acceptable to eat poorly on that day. I struck a VICTORY yesterday eating good but once again. The one thing on my mind, was Thursdays weigh-in and my goal for March.
I contemplated giving up my morning coffee for lent, and even proclaimed the possibility. But, as I walked in to my kitchen this morning, that stainless steel pot was calling my name. So I will wait to give up my caffeine till I am closer to leaving for The Ridge. Instead, I have given up all snacks sweet & salty. So, basically all the 100 calorie snacks that I have in my house are no more till I return from Fitness Ridge. Because, lent ends the day I arrive at Fitness Ridge. In other words, my Easter is checking in to my home away from home.
I have been really pushing my incline walking and did 2 miles early today on an 9.0 incline. I ended up going back on my treadmill later in the day and doing another 3 miles for a total of 1,000 calories!! Yipee! It's the weigh-in that's motivating me. It's more like I am so paranoid that although I have kicked my butt all week I will see no weight loss or worse a weight gain. Believe me it has happened to me!! So I know as I type this, my bike is waiting for me. I will ride it for an hour tonight. It is great having my bike in my media room as I can work out and still hang with the family. Seriously, if my bike wasn't in there I would be missing out on some of my calorie deficit.
So as I finish up my blog today, I promise you I am scared that tomorrows weigh-in is not going to show how hard I worked all week. Oh do I hope I am wrong!!!!
