Wendy's comments about food is very interesting. Breaking things down into macros used to be a big problem for me. That is one of the things that Lean Eating did do for me--I don't think about food that way now. It's a nice balance. Unfortunately, this past week has been full of challenges for me. John's birthday & Super Bowl Sunday fell on the same day. Girl Scout cookies came into my home of my own volition...thought I could handle them. Can't.
However, the thinking about food as a means for aesthetic purposes....Yep, that hasn't changed. "I can't eat this if I want to look like x." That's me. When I know what I should be thinking is, "I shouldn't eat this because my cholesterol is a little high, I’m genetically predisposed to high cholesterol so let’s counter balance that with better choices.”
This morning Leanne asked me how I felt yesterday. I told her every time the General came out of his office to give me things to do I thought, “Dude, if you knew I was commando it would freak you the f--- out!” LOL My dirty little secret indeed. I double checked my bag before putting it in the car last night. lol
I posted this on my facebook page but in case you didn’t see it…Are any of you using www.thereadingsite.com for you Kindle/Nook/iPad? I’ve found reviews that make it sound like a steal for $50 lifetime membership. Can it really be that good?
I broke out an old Cathy Savage workout for my cardio this morning. 6 minutes on the arc followed by 10 full-body squats, 20 lateral jumps, & 15 plank jacks for 5 rounds. I finished it off with 15 minutes steady state. I love those types of workouts because they just fly by. On Saturday I’m doing one of the functional workouts so I can get ready to do whatever Stephanie throws at us when I go over there.
