 Big difference on the scale today! Awesome, since I was up since last week (less than a pound, but still up). Today the hard work shows!



Eating not great today. i was locked in a meeting from 9 to 5 and we had to order a quick lunch which was burgers and fries to all and had snacks. Ouch. I will try not to eat much at dinner and not be over 2500 today. 


B: muffin 300 superfood 190 orange 50 - 540

L: burger and fries (ouch) 800 and 2 tea 160 - 960

S: trial mix and cinnamon rolls 600 

Subtotal 2100

Progress as of today: 11.5 lbs lost so far, only 16 lbs to go!

hollybelle on 01/25/2012:
I tend to eat the same things over an dover if I like them and I know the calorie count and they are healthy and satisfying - I always say cook once eat 2 or 3 times. You comment about dogs not finishing food and being smarter, etc. hit home with me - we have two dogs and the female only eats what she wants - never finishes her bowl but the big lab would eat until he literally popped, I do believe. He seems never to be full - and is getting slightly overweight thanks mostly to my husband feeding him extras. I guess even the cainines have different eating personalities just like us humans.

WII on 01/25/2012:
I stick with the same basics unless I'm cooking with other people or for other people..I'm a typical homebody LOL CONGRATS ON THE LOSS!!!

No change in the scale. Odd. But okay. It will show at some point!

Yesterday some of you commented on my hot yoga mention. So I posted on the forum a bunch of info about it, if you're interested.

Also, the other day I measured my mugs and noticed 1 cup is about 4/6 of my mug. So careful if you're using your mug as a cup measurement. I wasn't for the most part, only for my dog food, which is maybe why she never eats all her food. She's way smarter than me about her diet! Haha.

 Still up, but 0.2 less 'up' than before. I am okay with that.

I took a 90 minute hot yoga class last night and you burn soooo many calories on that. I felt great. I wanna go back to do more of it. I still prefer the certified Bikram yoga than the generic hot yoga class though. May go back to my old studio.

I've always wanted to try hot yoga, but there aren't any classes where I live :( Good job!

hollybelle on 01/23/2012:
I don't like to be hot, at least not at the beginning of the workout - so I don't hink I'd like it but I'll try anything once.

supercheese on 01/23/2012:
I wanted to try Birkam yoga so badly but alas, non here

 I weighted in more today. But I really think it's because I had most my calories a night last night. Kind of a big dinner, but overall my calories were good, so I am guessing I will be back down tomorrow or the next day. :)

Going to a hot yoga class today. Pray that I won't die. :)

Horn_Of_Plenty on 01/22/2012:
same as you, i weighed unexpectedly much higher, like 1.5 lbs higher than usual which is a lot. I'm contributing it to higher calories, but more bloating than anything. sometimes i think it's the type of foods - like very salty, for instance, that can make the body retain a lot of water.

V on 01/22/2012:
I hope you had a nice sweaty yoga class :) Have you by chance attended any of Loveray's classes??

liza36 on 01/23/2012:

RYC: last time we ate at this couples house they had roast chicken, roast potatoes, lots of veggies... good, but also appetizers, dessert, lots of wine. Hard to stop when I actually get to have real cheddar cheese so better not to start.
