In efforts to get in shape for a role I have in a film (filming the May, ommmmgggg) I thought I would stay better on track if I recorded my daily hell (I love chocolate... this is going to kill me). So here it goes-- this may not be everyone's cup of tea, so you can stop reading now because it's about to get... what's the word... I guess, all about food and working out. *Ugh, I want to die just thinking about it*
Weekly posts are to follow. This is week one. I am starting on a Tuesday because I cheated Monday. HA.
April 23, Tuesday:
So, today is day one. How many days will this hell last, you ask? I have no idea... it started because I need to get in shape for a role but now I am thinking that maybe it needs to be more of a continuous thing-- a lifestyle change, even. For those of you who know me well, you know I would take chocolate and candy over any meal... any day. So, this "lifestyle change" might be hard as hell for me. But... I do like a challenge, so let's go.
Breakfast started out with the highest hopes. I wanted to start easy and frankly I am not a morning person so I wasn't even about to cook (sorry future hubby). I went to my freezer and looked at the options... bored with what I found, I chose a Special K Breakfast Sandwich... thing. *Inserting real title here--Special K Egg with vegetables & pepper jack cheese Flat Bread Breakfast Sandwich* The sandwich concoction only takes a minute and 15 seconds to make in the microwave (my kind of breakfast) and it is actually pretty good. I followed the BS (Breakfast Sandwich) with a side of strawberries and a nice warm cup of friendly coffee (my one and only lover). I finished the BS and went on to the strawberries with excitement...as they were lightly dusted with sugar and ready for my taste buds. I was sadly disappointed when I found a little worm in the first strawberry. This killed the entire side of strawberries for me. They were not consumed. So breakfast, a Breakfast Sandwich thing and a cup of coffee.
Today was a lazy lunch, as I am at work most days so lunch is picked in the morning (Lazy, tired, not a morning person.. this all does tend to affect lunch choices). So this morning I decided a Tv Dinner Pizza would be fine *Inserting real title here-- Smart Ones Thin Crust Pepperoni Pizza* No, I am not on Weight Watchers. I just happen to really like their Tv dinners-- have for years. And they are healthy and easy, so that's a plus. A break down of today's lunch: Pizza, some healthy granola bar I found in our Workroom (sorry coworkers), fruit snacks (80 cal), and aqua.
I attended job one from 8:30-5:00 and then hushed over to job number two until 9:30pm. When I work both jobs in the same day, dinner suffers. I usually just grab something easy whenever I walk in from Satan's Lair, Oh I'm sorry, I mean my job. Dinner was a cup of olives. I kid you not. I'm choosing sleep over food.
While at my second job, I did have a snack. I was able to find another one of those granola bars from earlier (Sorry again coworkers) and another pack of fruit snacks.
As for exercise, I went for a walk. Gym time starts next week.
Day one down... and so many more to go. I guess the word for today was, "Easy". Good night.
