A week between postings could be a sure indicator of me falling off the wagon. Thankfully, that's not the case, just general chaos this week in the office. Sorry. I've done pretty well this week, I've only slipped up once and that was indulging in a Starbucks pastry my brother brought home Tues. (it was a cheese danish - my favorite and the death of me). Other than that I've been a good girl, mostly sticking to soups for lunch. I've been slipping on eating breakfast yet again, but I had my oatmeal this morning, and a lean cuisine meal for lunch. Dinner will probably LF chicken enchiladas. I've exercised thrice this week, and I'm going to try to do some cardio tonight, since I slept in and missed workout this morning. I'm really craving chocolate, but so far I've not given in. If I do it'll be dark chocolate. I think I've gone 4 weeks without a soda. Granted, I'm not a cola drinker, but I've been surprised at how carelessly I'll drink one and not even think about it. My pants were slipping today, which is kinda cool in an uncool way. I'll have to belt them next time in order to not embarras myself.
I really like fruit juice and I'm beginning to realize that I am going to have to watch my juice consumption. As good as juice may seem fo the body (and it is), it is a lot of sugar and a lot of calories to be wasting on 8 oz (when you are dieting). I've been slacking on my water intake this week and I'll be stepping that up today and tomorrow.
Lastly, if you like cheese and you like to snack, but both can be hazardous to your diet, I've found that buying wheat melba toast and Laughing Cow light swiss cheese spread is perfect. It's a low fat, low calorie substitute to cheese and crackers and it far from depriving. I highly reccommend this.
