Well, this is day 6, I think, of being back on Atkins. It hasn't been bad at all. Tillie says I'm 49 today and that I am progressing nicely toward my goal. I'm in ketosis which makes everything much easier. I baked chocolate chip cookies yesterday. Wasn't tempted - didn't bother me. What did bother me was being presented with an early birthday gift of a 3 pound bag of M&Ms and a big box of microwave popcorn. To be fair, the person who gave them to me probably thought I would really enjoy them. And I would have - last week. In the future I will probably be able to handle them in small amounts, but right now they are both on my pooh pooh list.
On Biggest Loser last night, Blaine (I think it was Blaine - the one with the new baby) was sent home. It's strange to see the group dynamics each season. Last season I would have charactarized it as Bullies vs. Nice guys. This season they all seem to be emotionally bonded - except for Joelle who is STILL impacting the group even in absencia. Aubrey is really getting on my nerves. Last night her sister Mandi, won a challenge that allowed her to spend 24 hours with her family. Even with that distraction, she lost 6 pounds. But Aubrey, instead of being happy for her sister, was whiney and self-pitying - didn't workout as hard, and it showed on the scale. She talks a good game but she's not all that different from Joelle - well, she's not spacey like Joelle but she is becoming just as annoying. Tara is still my vote for the one who will take it all - barring game play.
Well, I'm off to workout and watch the first half hour of last night's show.
Type: Treadmill with weights
Route: workout room
Time: 31 minutes
Average heart rate:121
Max heart rate: 157 (I think - grrrr, my HRM hinked up on me)
Down 4 pounds from last Wednesday
Got on the treadmll at 11:54 (gotta get goin' earlier)
Temp: 44 degrees
Okay, I saw the first part of the show where Aubrey and others threw the challenge for Mandi. I owe Aubrey an apology - but she still whined.
I need to get going on the workout earlier in the day. When I procrastinate, there is a better chance that the workout isn't going to happen.
Now I'm gonna go do some Yoga for stretching.
