Just wanted to pop in before my day started and kind of put down what I'm thinking. I'm very excited to start and I wish that I could focus on it all day, every day. But in honesty I can't. I am not at the Biggest Loser ranch, I have a life that I need to live. But I will be focusing on it when it's appropriate.
- weighed myself first thing = 197.2**
- drank 2 cups of water = bleh
- had black coffee
- ate a banana with peanut butter within 30 minutes of getting up = bleh
**That number does not scare me or surprise me or upset me. This week has been a week of horrendous eating - sweets, cakes, donuts, etc, at school. Then there was the alcohol yesterday at lunch...So the fact that the number is up slightly does not surprise me at all.
Drinking water first thing in the morning - bleh!! Definitely not used to that and definitely something I will have to get used to. It makes me feel bloated, but that feeling doesn't last long. And I will get used to it.
Eating within 30 minutes of waking up - bleh!!! I don't usually eat right away. I will generally drink my coffee and not eat for at least an hour. That is just another thing I need to get used to.
The black coffee was surprisingly easy to drink. I thought I'd have trouble since I have always used milk or creamer. But no! I was wrong. It actually tastes pretty good without creamer in it. I am going to limit myself to 1 cup a day and I would like to get that down to 1/2 a cup. Something else to work on.
So I'm ready to get started. I'll be heading over to 24 hour fitness soon and I'm totally looking forward to it.
