I started my day in the kitchen, homemade sauce, meatballs, banana muffins, and some homemade soup. It was fun! There is something therapeutic about cooking for me, especially when I’m starting my week off.
Tomorrow is my first day of classes. I have a night class so that means packing a lunch and a dinner plus a boatload of snacks. It’s a long day but I always eat better when I’m distracted at work. It’s the busy factor.
- No gym today. I’m still recovering from the step class. I’m SUPER sore!
- I’m rethinking my water bottle choice. I love them and the convenience but there seems to be a some evidence that suggest they can be harmful, even cause you to gain weight and some people are responding. Now I’m not normally one to hop on the hysteria bandwagon but I’ve noticed some weird things going on with me since using the bottle and maybe it is xenoestrogens from the bottles. (I’m not going to go into them, just think PMS when you aren’t suppose to have PMS) There really is no way to know unless I stop using them so I’m giving them a break for a few days. I’m also definitely not allowing the toddler to drink from it anymore. (I went on a little research kick after a couple of comments on my original post – I’m such a geek!)
- Since I’m on a link kick, I might as well through this one out there. Apparently I’m doing something right…
"People need to be aware that there’s not just initially doing the strict diet and losing weight," Dr. Cheskin said. "They really need to step back and see where the habits come from, and what they need to change for the long term so that they have a diet for the rest of their lives that helps them maintain the right body weight for their size."
Alright, I need sleep for my long day. Hope you all had a great weekend!
