Yesterday was Thursday right? Yep, sure was! Work was work....BORING!! But hey that's ok! The real exciting stuff came later! Sometime around 4 PM I believe, when I went into the gym to get on the treadmill. It was a run day, **YAY** but....it was W8D1, 5 minute walking warm up followed by 28 minutes of solid jogging, & a 5 minute cooldown. NO WAY!! There is no way I was going to be able to jog for 28 minutes. That is roughly 8 songs, good fast upbeat songs.
Of course I started! (And somewhere around 14 minutes in my legs were on fire!! And EWWW The sweat was dripping **GAG**) And ya know what?!?!?! I finished too!!!!!! BOO YAA!!! So during my cool down I couldn't help myself, I was looking at the timer and it said 38 minutes, totally wasn't even trying but suddenly I got this quiet little smile on my face and a silent fist pump that said "YES!!" I literally felt proud of myself! Doesn't happen very often, me feeling proud of me, it was a strange feeling. But it was awesome!! So I got roughly 1.5 miles in in 28 minutes. But I am not real concerned with speed right now. YAY ME!!!
Left there and went swimming for a 1/2 hour, I was a little warn out. But I still went. Last night I also went to my first support group. It was fun! I enjoyed it and will be going back again. Last night was exercise night, go figure LOL. I got there late but still participated in about 20 minutes worth of heart elevating exercise, I was sweating...So between running, swimming and the support group exercise I am guessing I torched about 550 calories total! Awesome!! So excited!
My food was good too! My "range is 1200-1400 calories/day.
Sugar: 128 (OK so most of my food was good! I treated myself to a Starbucks since it was a straight liquid diet day) :)
Fast forward to today! Today was a swim only day. I decided to take it easy and have a light day. I got off work early around 3. After I swam I went for a pedicure & got my nails done. Fun times! For dinner I decided to make a Cauliflower Pizza Crust Calzone. Who woulda thunk!?!? I got this idea from Lyn. Cauliflower, eggs and cheese as a dough!?!? AWESOME!! It started like this:
And cooked it looked like this!
Pizza Crust is easy: 2 cups Cauliflower, chopped in the food processor or blender, cooked and squeeze as much moisture out as possible. Add 2 beaten egg and 1/3 cup low moisture Mozzarella. Add your own toppings or stuffing like I did, and bake 12 - 15 minutes at 450 degrees.
This is a doubled recipe and it made it way huge, and took about 1/2 hour to bake at 450 and I will get 4 meals out of it. Neither of my kids like cauliflower, but one of them said it tasted really good and they liked it better with catsup.
Today's food totals were good too!
Tomorrow is a college thing with my oldest, a massage and a night out with friends from work! I am looking to not drink 10K worth of calories! Wish me luck!
Have a great night everyone!
