Some of you have checked in on the challenge. Does anyone else want to check in on the challenge? It began two Mondays ago. I'm keeping a tally on the post that is dedicated to the challenge, click on the image to the right or right here.
Today's inspiration, Back in Skinny Jeans: Don't Self-Sabotage Yourself!
I know I learned something from that lesson on self-sabotage. Hope you did too.
I haven't lost anything in 7 days. PMS is an ugly thing. Some women swear by Midol, but it doesn't seem to do anything for me, including dropping water so I could drop a pound.
Here are some things I do swear by:
- Liquid egg whites
- Body Fortress whey protein
- MINI Luna bars (not the full size!) Emergencies only to replace grabbing that holiday snickers in the office.
- one tablespoon of light virgin olive oil (Cooked with one or two pounds of meat it isn't that much fat on a weekly basis, it is the good kind of fat, and it will keep you from being constipated.)
- Greek nonfat yogurt (yes, there's a HUGE difference, look for it)
I exercised on Monday night. I hit the treadmill hard, using their "fat burn" workout in which the bloody thing had me going up a 6.0 incline at times to keep my target 140 heart rate. It was intense.
Speaking of exercise, I will go again tonight. Even with my period. Unless I get some awful pain beforehand. Does anyone else still exercise when your TOM is here? I've read that exercise during that timeframe helps. Just don't overdo it.
