Well how did your day one go on Allan's Challenge? For me it seemed hard to drink the water yesterday. Now I don’t drink anything else (but a glass of milk with supper) during the day but water, always have been that way. I don’t like pop, tea, coffee, drinks, most juices but yesterday 2 gallons of water just didn’t want to go in. I made it though at 10:00 last night so you know what that meant, a trip to the bathroom about 3:00. My calories came in at 1128.
Today’s a new day and I tried something new. A pomegranate. At first I thought, heck I’m not doing all that work for this fruit.
But then after I figured out it’s not that hard and it tastes wonderful plus…for a full pomegranate it’s only 131 calories for 1 1/4 cups. Mix that with a bag of Instant Cream of week and you have a filling, good for you breakfast. Totaling 231 calories, 3 proteins, 1 fiber, 0 sugars and 19 carbs.
I got a treat for me yesterday. My local Schwann’s man comes once a month and I usually just buy juice for the kids and a special ice-cream for Mike but my Schwann’s man is such a suck up and told me how great I’m looking, the weight is falling off…you know all those sale pitches that no matter what sounds terrific. Anyways he told me about these…

So now if I have baked cookies all day, a cake or two and the kids are having a treat that is just a plain no-no I can have something too. There’s 24 bars in that box so I will be set for the next couple of months or more. A treat just for me. I can handle that. I hid them in the downstairs freezer too, a bit to keep them out of site out of mind and also to keep the guys from eating up my food. I was pissed at them this morning. I have been buying turkey/chicken thin sliced meats for me for lunch and they have eaten every single package. I leave them hot dishes, desserts and everything they need when they are hungry. It’s always in a blue container just for them and they ate my food. On top of my ear ache and headache this morning I was mad at them. Told them so, not that it will make any difference. Oh well I’ll have to be creative the rest of this week since I don’t shop until Sundays.
I’m off. I’m not sure to do what yet. It’s library day for the kids but I’m not really feeling that so maybe some paper crafts and painting. Oh I have some good news. Tomorrow I am joining the gym. With lots of creative financing we are going to be able to swing it for the next 4 months. After that we’ll just see but for the winter months I can go and do. None of the group sessions are available to me but all the equipment and pool will be. That is after a 14 hour day I can get up enough energy to go, I have to but it will take some discipline going.
Take care my friends and have a blessed day!!
