Negative Noodle...wait, what?
It doesn't help my snacking demon within me when I am fighting with my husband either. When he and I are not getting along it's my first instinct to grab food to munch on. There I go burying my problems with food! Classic! Not to mention I need a fill for sure! I can eat ALOT! I am going to make them double check this time around and make sure I haven't stretched my pouch because I don't understand how I am at 5.8cc in this thing and can still eat like this. I mean I am fairly smaller than other people who have found good restriction at 6cc. Mary has even gotten stuck a couple of times with her last fill and she has like over 1 cc less than I do. WTH is up with that???? I am not saying I want to PB or anything but at least if I did I would know I have real restriction.
On another note, I am excited about going shopping later today for some new gym clothes and a gym bag. I literally have only like 2 pairs of gym pants and one of them was at one point pajama bottoms (I think). Yeah that's how old they are! haha
I also have decided to start having oatmeal for breakfast again. I used to eat it religiously every single morning but then I went through my anti-carb phase (for the 100th time) and cut it out of my diet, only to turn around and eat chips, pasta, and rice by the end of the day. So that was pointless (I am referring to pre-band times!) I hardly ever eat pasta or rice now.
A girl I work with just interrupted my writing and we were talking about (surprise, surprise) my weight loss and I told her how the pounds just won't come off and she knows I have been working out and she asked if I eat alot of protein. I told her that I try to because we are supposed to have like 60g of protein a day and she said that she heard from a friend that a doctor told her that if you consume too much protein it can hinder your weight loss and that unless you are trying to build extreme amounts of muscle you should consume a small amount of protein daily. She said the friend followed his advice and started losing the pounds. This sound backwards to me! Is this true??? What do you all think?
Well this is what I have eaten today so far:
Breakfast: cinnamon apple oatmeal (added 1 scoop of protein powder), hot green tea
Lunch: Grilled chicken salad on romaine with tomato, cucumber, jalapeno, and like 2 tablespoons ranch dressing
Snack (for later): Greek yogurt with blueberries
Post workout: Whey protein shot
Dinner: Ranch style beans with sliced turkey sausage.
Exercise: 15min on the elliptical, 20 minutes on the treadmill (interval speeds), and 5 min on the stationary bike
Does this sound decent? Happy hump day everyone!
