It’s Monday – I hope that you all had a wonderful weekend!
I ate way too much this weekend. With Jaden’s parties and not having the Diet Bet to worry about, I let my eating getting a bit out of control. Or a lot out of control.
I still really struggle with weekend eating, and it’s something that I am always working on to improve. It’s just so weird because I can eat perfect throughout the week, but once the weekend hits, I’m like a crazy person. And I try not to deprive myself during the week, and still have a little treat or two so that I won’t overindulge on the weekend, but that never seems to work.
I didn’t want to weigh myself this morning. It’s amazing to me that it can take so long to lose weight, and yet I can gain it back super quickly. But since I am starting the Jillian Michaels detox water this morning, I kind of have to weigh myself, or else how would I know if it helped me to lose any weight?
So, I stepped on the scale, and yes, the number was up a bit. Don’t worry – Jillian Michaels to the rescue.
I mixed up a batch of the water this morning and will drink it throughout the day and for the next seven days.
I made the dandelion tea first by pouring 8 ounces of boiling distilled water over the tea bag and letting it sit for about 10 minutes. Then, I mixed up the remaining water, lemon juice, and cranberry juice in a large pitcher. When the tea was done, I added it in the pitcher.
I drank my first glass of tea during breakfast with ice. I’m not a big tea drinker, but when I do drink tea, I prefer it cold.
It didn’t have much taste at all, even Jaden tried it. First glass done. Only 52 more ounces to go…
- 1.16 miles, treadmill
- BodyPump – 60 minutes
- 1.86 miles, treadmill (Law Enforcement PEB test)
This morning at the gym, I hopped on the treadmill and walked/ran a quick mile before heading to BodyPump. After BodyPump, I headed back to the treadmill and went through the fitness tests that it has listed.
I decided to do the 1.5 miles Law Enforcement Physical Efficiency Battery (PEB) test. You just enter your age, weight, and sex and off you go.
I scored a 65, which isn’t great but isn’t terrible either. I didn’t really give it my all until the very end of the test. I was just doing it for fun, and it makes the my time on the treadmill a little less boring.
I tried to incorporate a lot of veggies and fruit into today’s lunch.
I had scrambled egg whites with green pepper & onion, raw veggies on the side, (I’m out of hummus! But I did put a little peanut butter on my celery), a clementine, and some pb toast.
Now, I just have to worry about dinner. We pretty much have no groceries in the house since we were so busy all weekend. Even though I feel like I go to the grocery store four times a week to pick something up, we usually but the majority of our groceries over the weekend.
Have a great afternoon!
