The scale was friendly this morning! I'm still 159.5. Cool. I say that because I ate Mexcian food at lunch yesterday. But I got my shrimp quesadilla (250 calories) and I ate the chips and dip VERY SLOW, so I ended up eating less. Plus I had only 1/2 a portion of cereal at breakfast yesterday. Still, I expected to go UP in weight and was pleased I didn't.
Hey, here's something neat I did last night...I cut up a fresh green pepper, mushrooms, and fresh carrots. Brushed them with olive oil and sprinkled Mrs. Dash Garlic & Herb seasoning on them, then grilled the whole concoction on the George Foreman grill for 7 minutes. YUM. I munched on a plate full of those for supper, and they were nice and SPICY (didn't even TASTE like vegetables!). Then I had a piece of whole wheat whole grain bread with just a smidgen of strawberry jam on it for a "dessert" item. And I was comfortable. Th spicy vegetables caused me to drink another big 32 oz cup of water, too.
I had energy after that, and about an hour and a half after eating, I got down on the floor and did 100 exercises for my abs, and 30 leg exercises for each leg. I think I'll add those in at least 5 nights a week from now on and maybe that will speed things up.
My weight goal, btw, is 135. I'd be very pleased with 140, but I really want to get down to 135 and being that certain times of the month I bloat up and stuff, that would in essence make me "float" between 135-140 range and that would be fine.
So when I started, I was 170 (or maybe a pound or two more...I didn't have a scale). Now I'm 159.5, and I need to get to 135. So I'll map this out like this: 170/159.5/135 (started/am now/going to)
Oh I finished MORNING MIST yesterday and wore the set out. Had one lady tell me she loved my opal set, so I guess I did pretty good simulating these! Here's a photo of the set...click the photo to look at the pieces in detail on my site:
