On Track for Tuesday

It is so much easier to stay motivated when you've been on plan for a week. Love it! I wish I knew what it was that makes it this easy sometimes, and so damn hard at other times. I guess if we knew that none of us would be here!

Got up early and drove DBF to work and hit the gym. Cardio day - so I did a total of an hour. 20 minutes on the treadmill - hill training at varying speeds, then 20 minutes on the elliptical - interval program, then I tried for 10 minutes on the stairmaster but I set it too difficult so I only made it 5 minutes...LOL....but got in a full 10 minutes on the recumbant bike, then a bit of a cooldown. I really wanted to quit almost immediately after I got on the bike, but I toughed it through!

Last night I did a bunch of chores around the house so decided to treat myself to an ice cream from McD's. About double the points of the yogurt and fruit I had planned, but totally worth it and totally within the points for the day since I hadn't counted in my APs when I planned my menu. Yum!

I'm just thinking up my menu for today now....

- Starbucks Grande Vanilla Double Shot on Ice (I finally just looked up the NI, and even with whole milk these are only 100 cals!)
- Liberte muesli yogurt cup with fresh blueberries
- fresh pineapple
- PC BM multigrain & flax bagel with light Laughing Cow, deli turkey, honey mustard & veggies
- scoop of leftover Asian slaw
- cherries
- chunk of low-fat cheddar
- dinner is BBQ'd pork loin chop with mushrooms & onions, Splendido mushroom risotto, steamed brocolli & cauliflower
- grapes & maybe a Creamsicle (but I say that all the time and never have one) Pin It

you so nailed it in that first paragraph.
Id often laugh with my clients when theyd ask me that precise question:

if I knew Id be on oprah's couch.

that which does not kill us....makes us stay on plan.

Sounds like you got in a great workout!!

I LOVE the McDonald's cones, they're not too bad calorie/point-wise either, I read around 150 cals. Yummy!

Mmmmm Mcdonald's ice cream!

How many points was it out of curiosity? What size? Chocolate of Vanilla? I loves me some ice cream, as you can tell.

Awesome workout at the gym!!

I feel the same way...some weeks seem so easy, other times it seems impossible.

re: the McD's cone...I had a large one so according to their website it's about 250 cals. I could do with a small one next time though...couldn't find the NI for that one.

You and your starbucks! You always make me start craving coffee!! You're evil!

I was going to type up that shortcake biscuit recipe for you. I picked up the cookbook, and then...???

I can't find it. In my usual fashion, I got distracted and put it down somewhere and I have no idea where it is. I'm sure it will turn up and I'll be scratching my head wondering why in the world I put it there...But when I find it, I'll type up that recipe for you.
