Dieting… Day 4

Nothing has changed at all. Two more shakes – breakfast and lunch. The gym didn’t happen on day 4. I think setting my minimum to three days a week could be a bad idea. I went three days by Wednesday and I’m thinking I’m not going to get back there until next week.

For dinner on day 4 I made an excellent dish that I haven’t made in years. For some reason, it’s called Mexican Dry Rice Soup. It isn’t a soup at all, but rather it’s more like Jambalaya.  Check it out in the recipe section.

I did hop on the scale yesterday – 6 lbs gone already. But the first several weeks always tend to be encouraging that way. Everyone says it’s only water weight – but, I don’t care what the weight is made of – gone is gone.

Weight Loss Day Three…

Right Size SmoothieWell, I completed day three – still in the easy stage, but I’m starting to want something other than a shake for two meals. Perhaps I could add a salad to lunch or something else.

Breakfast and lunch were exactly the same as the first two days of my weight loss plan – a chocolate shake from Rightsizeonline for each meal. I should be receiving the Slend-a-Berry Right Size Shake in the mail very soon. That should add some variety to my life. I had two whole wheat Pizza Lean Pockets for dinner. I might should have only had one, but it was 7pm by the time I ate and I was starving – and they were only 210 calories each.

I did go to the Y again and got on my favorite elliptical machine and burned almost 400 calories again. I’m not sure why, but it’s becoming difficult to get motivated to go to the Y. We used to belong to the Spring Valley YMCA – and that was great, but there’s something about the Boyertown Y that just doesn’t do it for me. But, it serves a purpose and I will continue to persevere.

Day Two

So day two was not much different than day one, with the exception of going out to dinner. Breakfast, lunch and exercise were almost exactly the same. I used a different type of elliptical machine at the Y and it only said I burned 115 calories – which will not do. If I can burn 400 calories on one elliptical machine and only 115 on the other – using it the same amount of time – I can’t see any reason to ever go back to the 115 calorie machine. My mamma didn’t raise a dummy!

Anyway, we had plans to go out to dinner with some friends – but they canceled on us. I didn’t prepare anything to cook for dinner – so, we went out as planned.

We went to Bubba’s Pot Belly Stove. It’s a little log cabin style restaurant above Quakertown PA. I used to go there often with my soon to be ex-husband – and we always enjoyed it. But I hadn’t been there in about 15 years. What I remembered was that they had incredible burgers. I wanted to continue to eat healthy so I ordered one crab cake, which came with 3 grilled shrimp, mashed potatoes and the veggie of the day – green beans and peppers. It was adequate. Nothing to rave about – still better than cooking, though.

We’re still planning on going  back with the friends who canceled. I think I’ll get the burger then.

That’s about it for day two.

Ok, so I’ve officially begun the healthy eating, exercising, weight loss plan.

I got up (a little later than I originally planned) at 7ish; headed over to the Boyertown YMCA and did 30 minutes on the elliptical machine. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the machine said I burned 400 calories. That was all I could handle in the way of exercise this morning.

For breakfast I had Right Size Smoothie #1 for the day. It was good. I took a Right Size appetite suppressant as recommended at 11:30.

Lunch – Right Size Smoothie #2. I mix about 8 – 10 oz skim milk, 1 scoop smoothie mix and about a half dozen ice cubes in the blender to make a cold, thick smoothie.

Mid afternoon I was getting hungry and I had half of a strawberry Quaker Breakfast bar – cause that’s what was near by.

Dinner – I fixed the Easy Baked Fish and Chips (check out the first recipe on the Healthy Recipes page). It was excellent. I’m not a big fan of cooking  – so this is gonna be rough for me. But I will endeavor to persevere.

That completes day one…
