Day 3 of My 30 Day Countdown

I had the day off today but you'd never know it!! This is the first real moment I've had to sit down today. I woke up at 5am to workout (weight training), made breakfast and got my son off to daycare. I then took my husband to a dentist appointment. By the time I dropped him off at work, it was time for my lunchtime kickboxing class. It was a great class - good workout!! Before I knew it, it was time to pick up my son from daycare, prepare dinner, take him to his Jiu-jitsu class and come home. Just finished cleaning the kitchen and will soon be off to bed! Busy day!!

I FEEL great, I'm a bit tired but, I had so much energy today. I'm so excited!! I was just thinking and so far this week, I have TURNED DOWN so many bad foods - resisted so many temptations. I'm so proud of myself. At a team meeting, there was a package of the most decadent looking and smelling chocolate truffles. I could have had as many as I wanted, yet I refused. I'm not going to let a stupid little truffle get in my way!!! I also turned down oatmeal raisin cookies and chips!!

Bottom line is so far (an I intend to continue this way), I have been eating like a champ - clean and healthy while exercising proper portion control. I know I still have about 30 days to go but I'm taking it one day at a time and I will make each of those days the best that I can! I'm making sure that I consume enough water throughout the day (approx 3-4 litres)! I have been on point with working out. I am hoping that translates well on the scale come Saturday!! :)

Anyway, that's all for tonight, I really need to hit the sack, because as my trainer Rob says, getting enough rest each night is a very important part of the successful fitness/weightloss process!!

Today's breakfast - 3 boiled eggs (whites), sliced small tomato, water

AM Snack - Protein shake (whey protein powder, water)

Lunch - garden salad (from Subway) with, lettuce, extra cucumbers, green peppers, onions, grilled chicken breast, pepper and a bottle of water

Afternoon Snack - 1 small baked sweet potato with 1/2 can of tuna, water

Dinner - Dinner was great y'all. I made a curried shrimp and cabbage stirfry (with left overs for tomorrow's lunch). I took pix which I'll post tomorrow.

I'm have a cup of green tea (unsweetened) right now!!

That's it!! until next time...

great job joania,
clean eating and exercise and one day at a time. Can't wait to see the 30 day total.

I can't wait for the photo of your dinner/lunch and maybe a recipe for the curried shrimp??? I'm new to shrimp :)

It's not only what you do eat, it's what you Don't eat that matters too. I can see why you're very proud of this accomplishment. If you're anything like me, you spent a lot of years saying yes to food just because it was in front of you and/or someone offered it.
That's what I was like anyway.
Great job!

Joania, I know exactly what you mean. Anymore, it seems like that when I take a day off I am more busy than when I am at work. I am planning to take the week of Thanksgiving (US) off, but my week is already jam-packed full of stuff to do.

Hi, I'm new to fitness blogging and was thrilled to find your blog. You sound like my kind of blogger. You seem like the type of person who isn't going to make excuses, you get out there and eat right and exercise.

I just started working with a trainer myself and am really looking forward to seeing some positive changes.

I'm so glad I found your blog!

I just love your upbeat posts! Nice job on turning down the goodies - nothing tastes as good as thin feels (or so I'm told).

I’m finally trying to catch up!!! I am so happy to see that your downward trend has continued with the weigh-ins. You are doing awesome! You must be so excited to be getting so close to the one year mark, especially given how far you have come and how many wonderful experiences you have gained along the way. You need to post a new progress picture, girl… it has been too long and we all want to see what’s what (grin). I can’t wait to see this week’s weigh-in either; I just know it’s going to be amazing!
