The First Day Always Sucks

Today was the first day of the Reinvention Party. I did change it up a bit though. I am trying to lose inches not necessarily weight. I could care less what my weight is the inches are what bugs me. I know that sounds odd. I learned long ago in the army that when you are dieting and excercising you need to check your inches. Muscle that is in shape and tone will weigh more than muscle that isn't. Alot of people get discouraged when they are dieting because they feel they are getting smaller but not losing pounds. My goal is to lose 10" around the waist and 3" off the bum.

So, what does a fat wannabee stripper eat? I know you all are dying to know! I did change things up a bit for my own tastes.

Breakfast - 2 scrambled eggs wrapped in a wheat tortilla with salsa, 1/2 banana and a small glass of juice.

Snack- 1 slice of bread with 1 tsp of peanut butter

Lunch- 2 cups of spinach with 1/4 cup diced ham, 1 oz cheese, 1 hardboiled egg and 1 tablespoon vinaigrette.

Snack - 1/2 cup cottage cheese and 1 apple

Dinner - 2 veggie burgers with 1 cup broccoli and 1 cup carrots, cooked

It doesn't sound like alot but eating every 2 hours did make me feel full all day.

I was even good and didn't just watch the exercise DVD's. I actually participated. There I was in the living room feeling good cause I could actually do the exercises with out getting a cramp in some ridiculous position. My hubby walked in to get something and I just thought I was looking really good doing these.

"Are you doing those stripper exercises?"

"Yup" says me trying to pour on the sexy look.

"And you are doing this for exercise not some new career right?"

Heehee I think. I look so good doing these he is starting to get worried! "No, they are just for exercise."

"Good, cause I was going to tell you to practice more if it was a new career"

Guess who just slipped from my #1 customer slot....

Maggie, he didn't really say that, did he? "practice more, if it was a new career"? That is so funny! so what tape is it? Is it really a strip-tease exercise dvd???

Maggie, muscle weighs SEVEN times more than fat. Isn't that amazing?

When I get all "I need to fit into my clothes" I do T-tapp. Kills me, but works fast.

Email me about a trip to month looks pretty free and clear for me. :)
