So, I’m sure you are wondering where my bikini blog has been and why I haven’t posted any updates, right? I can assure you, I have a great reason for this!
I thought I was being smart and I downloaded this application on my cell phone, which was AMAZING for about 3-4 days! This program allowed me to enter in and record my calorie goals, the food/calories that I consumed for each meal, and also the type of exercise I did that day along with the number of calories I burned. My thinking was that I would record this in the program for a few days and then transfer it over to my blog for you all with accurate calorie counts, etc. A few days ago, I went to the program to begin transferring the information in my blog and for every single day there was information missing on what exercises I did that day and 2-3 meals/snacks were missing from each day. I have tried everything I know to recover that missing information so that I can have complete entries for you but I cannot locate it. I have a pretty good memory but unless I write it down, I can’t remember what I ate yesterday much less the week before. It could be operator error but I have come to the decision that I am going to start back keeping up with my food the old fashion way…in my notebook with pen and paper.
I want to apologize for this lapse of blog entries. I have part of the days logged but that’s all! So, I’m going to begin my new entries from yesterday.
Here you go!!!

I had a late writing appointment last night so I didn’t get to bed until 12:30am. I knew going to bed that I wouldn’t make it to my 6am TASK class today. I slept until probably 7:30am.
I woke up and had a bowl of oatmeal with fresh strawberries in it and some coffee. Mama brought home a bag of vanilla flavored Starbucks coffee the other day so I made it. It is good and makes the whole house smell like vanilla!
Cosmo had to get his shots today at 10:30am so we left at 10am. He did SO GOOD! Every other time I have taken him to the vet he has been so nervous but he really connected with the doctor that saw him today! I got back home around 11:30am and was hungry for lunch! I fixed myself a turkey sandwich on low-calorie whole wheat bread. On my sandwich I had turkey, low-fat cheese, mustard, and lettuce. I ate some POP NATURAL chips on the side with those. Mama discovered these new chips and you can have 23 chips for about 120 calories. They are all-natural and taste really great. I’m not sure what they are made out of but I will check that out and let you know!
I worked from home today on lots of things I needed to do from my computer. I had a couple of scheduled calls I had to make and around 2:30pm I was hungry again!
I had some almonds and Vitamin Water Zero while I worked from the computer. So many places have the vitamin water on sale right now. Publix is 10 for 10.00 and Kroger has it for .49 a bottle if you buy 10 and you have a Kroger Plus card! I’m going to Kroger tomorrow to stock up!! There are a few new flavors in the Vitamin Water Zero that I like now. Probably my favorite is the strawberry-guanabana. At 3:30pm, I went to the gym to do some cardio. I chose the Stairmaster today. I did 45 minutes of interval training and was soaked! There was a man waiting to use the machine after me and I felt so bad that I had sweated all over it. I cleaned it real good for him!
I headed back to my house to change into different workout clothes. Since I missed TASK class this morning, I wanted to make sure I made it to Kickboxing tonight. At 5pm, I had a think thin protein bar and vitamin water. From 6-7pm, I took Anita’s kickboxing class! I was so HAPPY I made it to the class! It was a tough one tonight and there were about 24 people in class! That’s a bunch which makes it even more fun!!
After class, I hurried home to watch the Bachelor Finale. I missed about 20 minutes, but I made it in time for most of it! I am telling you, I am hooked on that show!
Mama made chicken stir-fry for dinner. NO RICE…just veggies. While I was waiting on the stir-fry to cook, I had some mixed nuts and a few more of those all-natural chips. I drank vitamin water with my stir-fry and had a sugar-free Jello for dessert.
It’s about 10:30pm now and I should be asleep. I stayed up and watched the “After the Finale Rose” show. I’m going to bed soon cause I have chains in the morning!
