Ok honestly today didn't even focus on tracking my meals cause well was busy little bee today. grocery shopping, laundry, organizing, cleaning, putting away, sowing seeds for planting. I really haven't sat down much. I did manage to get a little walk in before round 2 of rain with Teddy and haven't even thought about going to the gym. Will probably regret tomorrow but like I said been busy little bee. I know I have had 2 servings of baked great northern beans with chiles, an apple and some rice flour pancakes that had no oil and 1tsp sugar in it with a lil syrup on them. Still have dinner to go so thinking about cutting up a sweet potato to go with the baked beans. Didn't really plan for Sunday meals..... One day I will learn to lol.

Ditto for me today! It does look lovely all green though!

Just think of all that lawn mowing you have to look forward to!
Since this rain will make the grass grow faster and faster!

Either I am still trying to adjust to the calorie deficit our I am just plain hungry! I want to stay shoveling everything in sight into my mouth!

Try and fight the urge, but it is sometimes better to just pick something out, go into another room, eat it, and stay in that room for 10 minutes. That way the food registers in your brain, and you can hold on to your sanity, and not eat EVERYTHING in sight!
Protein shake is my first choice. It usually registers the fastest in my brain, and I feel satisfied . . . well enough to think about a good choice for the next meal.

Eating lunch didn't even help. I just need to up my fat a bit in the AM. Think that might have been a problem

Ok added a little bit of unrefined coconut oil to my protein shake and my morning oatmeal (maybe 2 tsp worth) but do notice a difference in hunger. Yesterday I kept watching the clock for my morning snack and today I got done getting ready for work and was time for my snack. Will see how it holds me over til lunch. I sure hope it is just a matter of upping my fat a lil bit

I do that when I have oatmeal in the morning! Especially since I had to get chocolate Vega protein powder because Whole Foods was out of the Vanilla. Chocolate and the coconut oil just blend so well together! I also do a banana once in awhile when I want to up my calories alittle bit.

So far so good I am not actually not watching the clock for food just watching the clock so I am not late for work. I love opening the jar of coconut oil and smelling that sweet subtle scent of coconut. I do however have one hell of a headache coming on and my morning coffee isn't helping. Will take a couple tylenol when I get to work even though I really don't want to. I need to avoid a migraine.

Cardio: 20 min am walk with dog, 45 min walk on treadmill 3.3 @9% incline, 50 min boot camp.

Somewhere in between walking on the treadmill and boot camp I started forming a blister that tore open during the boot camp warm up.... yeah made for an interesting class since 1 shoe was turned into a slip on. Think I might have to have break my lunch up into 2 meals instead of 1. Can either have the lentils, rice and onions at lunch or the salad with sauteed tofu. Maybe move my 6 oz serving of tofu to the salad and have 3 oz at dinner. Need to figure out something soon before I scream from hunger madness.....

I feel like a horrible furmommy!!! I have started kenneling my 6 yr old basset in an effort to please my sister so she will hopefully be nicer to him. I am even going to try some doggy daycare for him 2 days this week. He is so miserable in the kennel and I just wish I could take him to work with me everyday or afford daycare for him but that would be half my check every week.... I hope to figure out a solution this weekend.
