29 days out!

We are in the 20's for the countdown of days. I am in awe of how fast the time has flown by. I wanted it to go by fast and now I wish it would slow down just a tad. Oh well.

I took progress pics this morning and then my husband had to use the camera and he forgot to leave it with me to download the pics so I will have to post them on Monday.

I am gearing up for my cheat meal on Saturday, plus for the first part of the day I get more carbs and more calories. WOOT! I am going to have a HUGE stomach by the time bed times arrives. Typically my high carb day is on Friday but since I was doing the cheat on Saturday night we moved my high carb to that day instead which is totally fine. It should work out well.

I am still getting up at 4:50 every morning through the week to get in an AM cardio session. The last 2 mornings have not been very productive. I have been so sleepy and my energy has been in the drain. It has been rainy and dreary here so I know that is factoring into that. My better, more intense workouts have been during the day at lunch or at night at home so I am still good.

I will get up in the morning for a good hour of cardio before I embark on my food fest then I will come home after my evening cheat meal and bust out at least 30 minutes on the TM even if a slow walk is all I can muster from being so darn full.

I have thought about this cheat meal long and hard and here is what I have come up with. Since it will be 4 more weeks until I get another one I gotta make it good and make it very satisfying so here goes:

pre-dinner appetizer at my home shared with my husband and kids - Rotel/velveeta cheese dip and these crazy good crispy thin tortilla chips from the store that I love.

dinner - my favorite pizza place for small canadian bacon/shrimp salad with full fat ranch and capt. wafer crackers AND of course PIZZA, not sure what kind, maybe hamburger an mushroom and onion.

post dinner - small ice cream from my favorite frozen custard place. (typically get a medium but I have a 2nd post dinner this time)

post dinner #2 - homemade no bake cookies (you know the peanut butter/oatmeal/cocoa kind that you don't cook, they just set up) and a big ol' glass of milk. My Mom makes these and they are heaven on earth. I haven't had them in about 1 year at least so I am going to enjoy a few.

That's it. I will have ONE HUGE STOMACH after all of this not to mention the oatmeal and sweet pots that I will eat earlier in the day.


I promise to document it with pictures so you can see me enjoying the yummy goodness of fat filling, artery clogging foods that I still love, on occasion that is. Loving this lean, trim, less fat body a little bit more these days. HA
