Gym rat Thursday 4/23

I'm back in the 160's again.... but barely! But there nonetheless!!!!!
Yesterday was 55 minutes on the elliptical trainer and tready and 1hr Yoga class! I burned some butter!

Bean Burrito
Cheese stick, kashi bar, orange
Fish tacos(tilapia, 2 small tortillas, salsa, slaw)

Much better 4/22

Yesterday's snack monster was held at bay a little better! I did eat an extra orange for snack... but I stayed away from empty snacks and after the orange I went straight to Hip Hop class for an hour of butt melting exercising. I also moved my evening snack up a little earlier in the evening but I used water to keep me away from any extra late night snacking... So all in all yesterday was one to be proud of.
What's happening today?
1 ww grain english muffin, 2 strips turkey bacon, 1 oz monterrey jack cheese.
Boiled egg
Homemade chicken and vegetable soup
kashi bar
Salmon patty on ww muffin and veggies
1 cup cheerios 
1/2 cup 1%milk 
1 banana
Tons of water!!!! 1hr (elliptical & treadmill) & 1hr Yoga class tonight!
I hate the scale... I'm working hard but it's not paying off yet! I know that by weeks end that all my hardwork will finally show!

Calming down Tuesday 4/21

Ok yes the scale was and still is up... I've decided that I can calm down and make my goal at a realistic pace... I didn't just wake up to 5 pounds I got here gradually so I must leave it gradually as well...
Yesterday was good I followed my plan to a T! Until my feet hit the door when I got home yesterday... and the snack monster took over (pretzels, crackers, rice chips, pecans) ugggghhh! I stopped and then decided to have my dinner and just forgo my evening snack of cheerios and milk. I may have to have my evening snack as soon as I hit the door in order to control my afternoon snacking. My water intake yesterday was GREAT and so was my fiber intake.
That all being said... I'm looking forward to a better today.
Smoothie (banana, 1 cup lite vanilla soymilk, 1 scoop flax seed, splenda)
Coffee (2tbs half and half, splenda)

Dressing- Balsamic Vinegar
Popcorn (2tsp canola oil)

The Horror!!!!!

I weighed in this morning and much to my own surprise.... I gained a FULL 5 pounds... Taking me solidly out of the 160's... How did this happen...
Ok got a minute...
1. Drink a Starbucks Cafe Mocha no whip 3 times a week.
2. Only write down the healthy things that pass your lips while ignoring the junk.
3. Don't drink water.
4. Only put forth 80% effort while working out.
5. Talk yourself into eating lots of sweets (cookies, cakes, ice cream, candy)
6. Tell yourself that eating unlimited amounts of dried "Mango" counts as your fruit for the day!
7. Do Yoga in bed.
8. Drizzle Honey onto everything and announce that it's healthy sugar.
I need a ReDo!!!!
I think I've finally gotten my wake up call!
Good Morning I'm listening!
