Wow...putting it in writing seems like so much more food than I original thought. I'll do better tomorrow. I have to if I'm going to lose any weight. The woman that I nanny for made us lunch again. I think tomorrow will be the last day of that, unless she comes home to eat lunch...in which case there is no way I'm ever getting out of lunch this summer except for weekends and days that I have off. Dinner will have to be my skipped meal. We'll just have to wait and see.
My mom went out with some friends to the movies tonight so she didn't go on a walk with me. I was going to bike ride to my friends house instead (that definitely would have taken care of the two miles and more) but she was working so I went on the treadmill instead. I alternated power walking and jogging so I feel pretty good about it! Plus I got both sets of crunches in. I probably should have gone swimming but didn't think about till later and I like to go to bed around 10:00pm on nights when I have work the next morning since I have to wake up at 7:00am. I pretty much have my night routine scheduled from 8:00pm-10:00pm so remembering at 7:45pm that I should go swimming doesn't do me much good. I need more than 15 minutes. But that's besides the point.
I feel incredibly full right now and don't even want to think about eating. I'm drinking tons of water throughout the day which helps keep me full plus water is great for you! And the more water you drink, the less water you retain which helps prevent the build up of water weight.
I'm adding another item to my check list. I want to weigh myself every morning to keep track of my progress. I will start each entry with that number. I decided to add this about two hours ago so I didn't do it this morning but I will tomorrow. I've also decided that until I hit 130 I am not allowed to take baths or long showers. I will reward myself once I've hit 130. Then, of course, that privilege will be taken away till I hit 125 and so on till I reach 115 :D For now that is my ultimate goal weight. But I'm setting my sights on something closer first: 130
