Happy hump day! Today I was good with calories until I started eating Star’s popcorn. I swear I can’t resist! Unfortunately, It’s too late to go to the gym because Star is going to do her sisters hair tonight or else I would’ve gone after I’ve done this post. Since our gym close at 12 AM then we can go at 10 or 11.
I’m more of a night owl anyway. I do wish I could go to the gym during the day though because I never know what will happen after I get off of work. Today we had dinner instead of going to the gym right after work. What I thought would happen, happened and we did not go to the gym because as we are sitting here eating dinner, we got busy doing other things.
Star went to go make more popcorn for the Farmer’s Markets this weekend, hence why I said I went downhill at the end of the night lol. But that’s ok! So, for now, I’m 1/7 on gym days but I’m determined. I count Monday as the beginning of my week instead of Sunday just so you know.
I have more to say but I won’t make this an extra long post so I’ll leave it here. Thanks for reading and I’ll see you tomorrow. Remember to STAY HEALTHY!
Breakfast: Coffee and Cafe Mocha Creamer
Lunch: Pistachios and Chobani Flip Banana and Chocolate yogurt
Snack: 2 Small powdered donuts (A coworker gave me a pack to try because he said they came from Mexico. They remind me of the littleDebbie powdered donuts but with less powder. Still good though!)
Dinner: Fish with salad and pita. (Below is a picture of a past plate because I forgot to take a picture of tonight’s plate lol)
Dessert: Lots and LOTS of different popcorn lol. Classic Movie, Ambrosia, and Tiramisu. (If you want to see different pictures of the flavors, let me know.)
Yesterday I didn’t go to the park because of had to take care of a hair product label that needed to be created and it rained as soon as 5 o’clock hit. It’s sunny today so we’ll see if I can go skating today. Sharri says I’ve been doing good on the scale so yay for that.

Dinner for last night, I started to eat it before I knew it so I wasn’t able to take a picture of it but I’ll post up a Chicken and Dumpling picture that’s similar. ****takes time to look up the picture**** Ok so I tried to look up a picture and everything was soup. We didn’t have soup. We had 1 boneless skinless chicken breast and 4 small dumplings with some spinach.
So I posted my banana oat waffle on Facebook and just as I promised I’m going to share with you the super duper 3 (4) ingredient RECIPE that looks sinful but its not!
HERE YOU GO!
Here are the things you will need:
Quick Cook oats
Cinnamon powder (optional)
Microwavable Waffle mold (I got mine from Saizen-Daiso)
1. Take your bananas and slice them into a lixing bowl. I’m not giving any amount because i really didn’t count. I just kinda winged the recipe
2. MASH IT!
3. Then pour almost the same amount of oats into the mixture. Again I just estimated this. You are going to want your mixture to be thicker than oatmeal consistency because you will still be adding some whole eggs into this
4. Next get 2-3 whole eggs and mix them separately at first then add them to your banana and…
I don’t have much to say today. I weighed myself this morning and Sharri said it was a good number so yay. Yesterday I skated 2 miles instead of 3 and went home to clean a little. Today I will be doing my Flat Belly Execises.
40 Leg Lifts
20 Bicycle Crunches
30 Leg Lifts
10 Minute Workout (It says run but I can’t so… yeah)
Steamed Carrots and Broccoli
Homemade Wheat Bread
Homemade Garlic Spread
This is last night’s dinner. The meat that you see in the image was actually no good so I stopped eating it and replaced it with a cup of Bolthouse Farm’s Mango protein.
According to the app I’m using, Sparkpeople, I should be 137 right now. I don’t take what they say seriously because I’m a woman and my body fluctuate constantly. Especially on my time of the month, which was last week. It totally messed up my count. Sharri said that I was a 136.5 before it started.
I did the flat belly exercise this week and it wasn’t bad at all. I’m happy that it separates the sets for the crunches and leg raises. I can’t do the jumping jacks so I still have to come up with a alternative. We went to a park close to the house and I skated while sharri ran. We went for 3 miles before we stopped because sharri is training for a 5k she wants to do.
I’m happily keep up with my lunchboxes. They might be for little kids but they are a great way of take food with you in small portions. I love having snacks through the day and not feel hungry until I get home.
I’m going to the park again tonight to skate. We might do 3 miles again, I don’t know. I don’t know what we are having for dinner, I will update this post tonight.
My gallery page is linked with my Instagram page. I’m not able to blog everyday like I want to but I’m constantly posting pictures of how I’m doing on my path to weight loss as well as personal pictures I would love to share with everyone.
I worked out at the gym yesterday yay! I did circuit training first then I went to the elliptical for 45 mins. Got tired pretty quickly because I did a level 10 on the elliptical instead of 7 or 8. Today I think I’ll do the strength training and then go to the elliptical for 30 mins. I’m trying to spend less time on the cardio and more time doing something else. Then maybe one day a week I’ll concentrate on cardio. I woke up today being 142 flat! OMG!! I finally made it. I’m happy to be closer to being under 140. I think I’ll celebrate when I get to that point. I don’t know yet.
I didn’t go to the gym yesterday because Sharri’s monthly started and I didn’t want her to workout if she was in pain. I’m going to work hard today though because she has the car and gets out later than me so I’ll walk to the gym. It’s not far. I think I’ll start off with the circuit today and then do cardio. I’m still losing weight even though I didn’t workout hard for the last two days so I’m happy about that! The diet is working.
Yesterday I was so tired, I couldn’t workout as much as I wanted to so I decided to just do the elliptical for 45 minutes. Today I’ll do more. I found out that Target has a good salad that I could eat without extra stuff in it. Harvest Chicken Salad. It was good. It had chicken breast, sliced Almonds, and Cranberries. Of course I couldn’t eat the cranberries because I’m suppose to not eat fruit on Phase 1. I should’ve done some home exercises too but like I said I was tired. The fact that my computer wasn’t working at all didn’t help either so I could work on any projects. 😦 Sucks. Anyway, I hope today will be better and also the rest of the week.
