(Updated throughout the day)
I am going to spend part of the morning preparing some raw foods to have on hand for whenever a hunger pang strikes. I need to cut up and freeze my mangos, wash and freeze grapes, cut up some carrots and bell pepper, etc. So far, I have really only wanted simple raw foods...fruits and veggies in their natural form (or frozen), other than the occasional afternoon "ice cream". When I want something a little different, I may make some sun dried tomato hummus, which is yummy, or maybe this taco salad. For now though, there are so many variations of salad and raw salad dressings, that I am happy with that. Plus the many flavors of green smoothies. When I am hit with a craving or want something sweet, I have satisfied myself with frozen grapes, raisins, "ice cream", or hot tea with honey.
I really need to get back to exercise. I want to pick up running, which I have dropped for the last few weeks. I have done 30 minutes on the Wii Fit, which surprisingly, can get you breaking a sweat pretty fast, if you want to, a couple of times this week.
Potential pitfalls today: dinner for the family (either tacos, or crab legs and corn on the cob) and carnival food (we told the kids we might take them to the little carnival in town). Funnel cakes are my nemesis!
Starting Weight: 159
Current Weight: 157.5
Today's Exercise: 30 minutes on the wii fit
Today I ate:
-10 ounces smoothie (strawberry, banana, water, spinach, honey, flax seeds)
-1 waffle fry
-strawberries, gRAWnola, honey
-steamed veggies and rice
-bag of cotton candy
-4 bites of funnel cake
-4 pieces of caramel
Well, I guess I can change "potential pitfall" to "actualized pitfall"...yea...the carnival was definitely trouble. I did OK at dinner, considering that there was not a raw item on the menu. I had the steamed veggie plate with rice. Water to drink. As for the cotton candy and funnel cake...well, there just aren't any excuses. **sigh**
