Day 2 - It's my anniversary...?

Today while talking to my mom, I asked her what the date was and she informed me it was March 16. Today is my 9th wedding anniversary, and I didn't even realize it. Easy thing to do when you don't have a husband anymore... Oh, well.

This morning's breakfast was:

1/2 c. eggbeaters w/ 1 slice reduced fat cheese made into an omelet (2 pts)
2 slices of double fiber bread w/ light margarine and jelly (6 pts)
3 slices of reduced fat bacon (only 2 pts!)

Very filling and yummy. I did 45 minutes on the elliptical a couple of hours after breakfast. Last night I did 20 minutes of strength training on arms and glutes, and tried the Biggest Loser Yoga (but couldn't do much of it). I was sore this morning, but did the elliptical anyway. My knee is hurting, which sucks. I took two Aleve and it's better.

Lunch was tricky. I was planning chicken salad again, but when I started toasting frozen waffles for the kiddos, I wanted them SO bad. Then I remembered that I had some Special K waffles in the freezer. So I had waffles, too! With light syrup drizzled on, and topped with sliced strawberries and Cool Whip Lite. YUMMY! I felt like I was cheating, but was totally satisfied. Now it's time for me to go to work at LB, and I have about 30 minutes to come up with a reasonable dinner that will tide me over. I think I'll warm up a can of soup, and bring a fiber one bar to snack on.

The eating at LB is out of control. My co-workers LOVE TO EAT, and do so with no regard to fat content. It's so hard to resist when it's being shoved in your face. But I have to! Tonight I will NOT give in to fast food at work. I have a plan, and will stick to it.

The Biggest Loser Yoga dvd is a killer! I still have not been able to get all the way through Level 1 still because of the pressure some of the poses put on my knees. I keep trying though !

Way to go on trying the BL yoga, keep working at it you're eventually get it. It is tough when you're around food pushers, hang in there, how did it go?
