Sorry this is another late night post; I just got disconnected, and lost what I’d already written. Anyway… I’m all done with day 9 of the Shred! That means I’ve only got one more day left of level 1, and then I’ll move on to level 2. I’m a little scared about that. Level 1 is still a challenge for me, but it’s definitely gotten easier.
Also, a little update on my weight loss progress: I haven’t lost anymore. I’m not really worried about it, though, because I can feel my clothes getting looser. If I don’t lose any weight by next week, though, I’ll have to see what I can change. The biggest thing is probably that I need to start counting calories again to keep my portions in check. Don’t like that.
I really wasn’t hungry this morning, possibly because I ate dinner so late last night. I really haven’t been very hungry for breakfast lately, though.
I barely ate half of this. I’ve had the weirdest appetite today. It’s like I’ve kind of been hungry all day. Nothing really fills me up, yet I don’t really want to think about food.
Around noon, Dad and I went to Target to pick up a few sale items. I got some pots and pans, a cookie sheet, and a smoothie maker. Which reminds me, I wanted to thank you all for your suggestions on what to take to college for cooking. I have a crockpot that I’ll take if they’re allowed (my college has some crazy rules—we can’t even have candle warmers), and hopefully I’ve got everything else covered.
And speaking of cooking things (I’m just making connections all over the place here, aren’t I?), I think one reason I didn’t want to think about food much today is that I’m just so overwhelmed about all the “stuff” I need to take to college. It’s stressing me out. I usually don’t stress very much about things, but for some reason, I just can’t get it out of my head! Pretty sure I just need to calm down.
I came back hungry, but (of course) not knowing what to eat. After lots of thought, I settled on a sandwich with leftover chicken salad, and a side of sun chips.
Around 6, my stomach was rumbly, so I had half of this granola bar.
This was probably my favorite food of the day; I loved how it was sweet & salty, just like is says!
Dinner then consisted of a big salad with half an avocado (the avocado lovely and creamy, by the way), some steak that was not very juicy, and some leftover baked potato slices dipped in ketchup.
Chick-fil-A was having a deal where you could get a free chicken sandwich with any purchase. So we went for an icedream cone and all got free lunches for tomorrow ;)
I did the Shred when we got home. It was tough. I was sweating by the end of it, as always. But I really felt like I was pushing myself harder that before, which is always good!
Then, I had a boring glass of milk as my post-workout carbs and protein. I’m so creative, aren’t I?!
Of course I’ll be sad to leave home after being back all summer (not sure if that sounds sweet or lame), but I’m really just ready to get this move over with already, so I can stop worrying about it! On a happier note, Morgan and I are going to Trader Joe’s tomorrow. This will be my first visit to the one here in Georgia, so I’m excited! I hope you all have a great day tomorrow, and I’ll see you soon!
