Accountability Contracts

Alright Ladies!
I don't know about you, but just making the decision to do something, and to be REAL about it (knowing that you guys were going to hold me to it) has made a big difference!

I did the 30 Day Shred yesterday, and half of it today.  (I was too sore to finish and Jonathan (Cuddle Bug) was not too thrilled with my attention being diverted from him!)  BUT I did do a one mile Leslie Sansone walking audio.  And instead of walking, I ran in place!  That felt awesome.  My legs are definitely feeling it.

And lets talk about food, shall we?

Good decisions all around today!
Crystal, if you aren't using MyFitnessPal, you really, really should be.  It is awesome -- I downloaded the app for my iPod touch, and it is slick to use, too!

Oh yeah:
Breakfast - Trader Joes everything bagel with cream cheese.
Snack (or Lunch #1) at 10:00 - chicken stir fry, with brown rice
Lunch (# 2) at 12:30 - salad
Snack at 3:30 - an Everything bagel, plain, not even toasted. I was STARVING.
Dinner - frozen California blend veggies with yummy chicken seasoned with garlic and cayenne. YUM and then some shredded cheddar on top.  SO DELISH!
Snack at 7:00 only because I was getting one for my son - a piece of canadian white bread.  I almost put peanut butter on it, but then I looked at the nutrition label.  I totally could have done it though--
it is 10:00 pm and....

Now how the HECK am I supposed to eat 500 calories between now and um... 11?
We have ice cream...  I suppose I could go have that PB and bread now!  Ha!

And I know.... look at my goal calories.  2190.  Crazy.  BUT-- when I was following a much more restrictive plan, I wasn't losing weight AT ALL.  So....  I am willing to give this a try.  It's easier to start with more, then to ADD more when you haven't been losing weight.  I was terrified to add more calories to see if that would work... and then... hmm. I got so burnt out of the whole darn scenario, that I decided to just eat.  (And EAT.)

So... Day #1 for me?
Success.  :)

Let me know how you all are doing!!


  1. great start! i will definitely get that ap. i hadn't heard of it til you mentioned it on your other blog! :)

  2. You're doing great already! I'm so glad you're on MFP. And I totally know what you mean about feeling better already. It's only Day 2, but everything has changed somehow!
