Stinking water weight is refusing to come off so I am more than a little frustrated the last 3 days. I think I need one of these.
Yesterday’s Meal Plan
Breakfast – Red beans and sausage with salad
Lunch – Red beans and sausage
Woke up really hungry yesterday so I had my normal lunch meal for breakfast. I wish I could think of something else for breakfast because eggs aren’t cutting it for me. I think I am almost to the point that I am repulsed by eggs.
I then had the same meal for lunch. One of the problems with the red beans and sausage is that it is one of the few meals that I actually love to eat. So keeping my portions under control and trying to keep it to one portion a day is difficult.
I woke up at 4am for some reason and could not get back to sleep so I got up so when 5pm hit, I was tired and feel asleep on the couch. I woke up at 7:20 and was late for a meeting. By the time, I got home, it was too late for dinner so I skipped it. With 2 portions of beans and sausage, I was near my 1200 calorie goal anyway.
I know the scale will dip soon enough but I’m more than a little grumpy this week.
I wish my bike would hurry up and arrive so I can get out there and get some exercise to give me metabolism a little boost.
Tip Of The Day
Don’t overdo the exercise.
Exercise is great, but I think many of us overdo it. We go from a sedentary lifestyle to working out 5 to 7 days a week and we end up burning out.
3 to 5 days is a happy medium. Give your body time to rest. You can alternate workout days with rest days or at minimum alternate heavy workout days with light workouts.
In the past, I have been guilty of working out every day which leads to burnout and quitting. Set realistic goals for working out that don’t just end up a daily torture routine.
Giving yourself a few rest days each week will give you a much better chance to stay on the diet and workout plan.
I just hope I take my own advice when Walmart sees fit to let me have the bike I paid them for. 😀
Happy Dieting, see you tomorrow.
