Aaaaaand, ACTION!

Today's food intake....
Breakfast was Quaker Instant Oatmeal- Maple/Brown sugar flavored, and a cup of coffee.

Lunch was red beans and rice, and a banana, and a soda.

I snacked on baby carrots and a baggie of roasted, but unsalted almonds and peanuts.

Dinner was a sandwich, tortilla chips and homemade salsa, and it was the last meal I ate.

I haven't had anything but water since then.


I did a half hour of interval cardio on my treadmill. It was a pre-set weight loss program that takes you gradually up to 4.0 mph and back down to 2.0 in 30 second intervals. I wasn't able to get up this morning to do it... I couldn't yank myself out of bed, so I did it while I watched The Biggest Loser Finale.

So it begins. it felt good to actually do something. My daughter was on the Gazelle while I was on the treadmill, and my husband actually took a turn on the treadmill tonight too.

Hopefully I can keep this going. I will blog more tomorrow.

  1. Family support will definitely boost your motivation! I've been wanting to add cardio in the mornings, but I get up pretty early just to beat bad traffic so I don't think I can get up any earlier to work out. I'm hoping I can move into an apartment near work so then the morning workout can happen.

    Right now I'm only doing cardio and weights for about an hour every Tu, Wed, Thurs and Fri, but I feel it isn't enough.

    I hope your soda was diet because the sugar in non diet soda is what keeps the weight on.

    I just read another research study about how if you eat oatmeal about an hour before working out, you can burn more fat. And if you eat food an hour after working out, say dinner, the dinner is more likely to be converted into muscle mass instead of fat. :D
