Skinny Rules – Week 1
Well actually it has not been a week – just four days. But I want to update you all on Mondays so I will refer to the first four days as “Week 1”.
I have been drinking much more water – as opposed to none from before. Some days only water but some days a diet soda (just one). I am actually getting quite used the water and look forward to drinking it. Who knew?! And not one frappuccino and I have them everywhere. I actually haven’t had one of those for two weeks.
Protein – that is taking about as much effort as I thought it would. A great deal of effort. I would much rather just sit down to two slices of toast for supper but I have been doing the protein and I have gone hungry if I didn’t want the protein.
I still have not been eating an apple a day. This is so odd and funny – I love apples. How can I not eat ONE PER DAY? It just never seems to happen. Maybe I will eat one today.
I may have snuck a french fry here or there but one or two – not a full order of fries.
I have been biking every day and when I have a pool available – I have spent a great deal of time swimming. I have also been doing squats, lunges, calf raises etc… I have yet to work on my arms other than swimming but I will get there. Still trying to develop a routine. Being on the road three days a week makes routines difficult.
And when I absolutely feel like I need a treat I resort to a couple squares of dark chocolate. First of all I don’t mind dark chocolate; they say it is somewhat healthy for you; and it is something that I would never crave lots of – a couple squares does the trick.
And the grand total for four days – 5 pounds.
The next update will be after a full week. AND I already bought new bathing suits for the next couple sizes down. I am good to go…
