Animal Afghan and Workout update
Here is my Animal Afghan. I finished 2 letters since Sunday evening! They are just so cute!!!
I put up my walking ticker at the beginning of the year before all the snow started. I was doing great stopping and walking at the park after work but then the snow came....I don't like walking in snow, mud or on the treadmill. I don't feel like I am going anywhere when I am on the treadmill. I just HATE it. So my husband asked me if I was interested in the PX90 at home workout system. I did some research and found that that would not be right for me since I am EXTREMELY out of shape. So, we ordered the Power 90 workout system for the people who are so out of shape and/or HATE to exercise. I waited patiently for it to come in and it finally arrived on Saturday. I opened it and read everything. It gives a 5 tiered list of foods from those that are GREAT for you and those that are bad for you. I started the diet officially today (I had to enjoy my Valentine Chocolate...lets get real) and isn't that bad. I just have to eat under 1300 calories every day.
It was suggested that I order their protein shakes, etc but I decided to go to GNC and purchase a protein shake there. As you can see, I purchased this HUGE tub of protein powered shake that will take the place of one meal a deal. I opened said tub and started laughing. I placed a spoon down to the powder since the powdered only filled up 1/2 the container. You mix 1 scoop with either milk, juice or water. I tried it with 5 oz. water and this is the final product. I measured it to my takeout knife. The shake was pretty good and I was full after I drank it. This diet also says that inorder to help the weight loss process, you are not supposed to eat 3 hours before dinner. You go to bed hungry and instead of digesting foods your body attacks your fat cells! so I stopped eating at 8:00 and then I realized that I am a snacker! I love to snack. So I curbed my snacking with a cup of herbal tea (no sugar). The only reason I didn't put sugar in my tea was that I knew I couldn't quit drinking cokes cold turkey so I did have a medium Sonic Coke with extra ice. This was 47 carbs!!! I was in shock when I read that on the Sonic nutrition's guide!!
I did the first workout and found out I am more out of shape than I thought. It was sad!
