RANT: What has happened to the strawberries? Lately they have not been very good - I keep trying different places to buy them, but so far, they have not lived up to the sweet yumminess that I was enjoying last month! And don't get me started on the price of blueberries! I'm looking at you, Sam's Club - $9 for a pound?!? That's hard to pay when they were less than half that a couple of months ago. I may have to figure some other fruit for my beloved Fage!
RAVE: You all know how cool my trainer Linda is, right? Well today she offered to loan me her BodyBugg!!! She knows I'm having trouble figuring out the right amount of calories to consume and still lose weight, and since she doesn't need it anymore, she very generously offered it to me. All I will have to do is purchase the online subscription and I will be all set! I have read about these, and seen the contestants on The Biggest Loser use them, but as they are quite spendy, I never thought I'd be able to have one. And now I will - woo hoo, thanks Linda!!!
RANT: My stomach muscles still hurt. Brad seems to think that I'm not giving myself enough protein after my workouts, and therefore am not repairing the muscles that I've worked. So, I bit the bullet and bought some protein powder and forced myself to drink a "shake" within 30 minutes after my workout today. Actually it tasted pretty good. I have set a "protein goal" for each day and will work harder to get to it - hey, if it will help to get rid of this soreness, I'm all for it!
RAVE: I am LOVING what I've been wearing lately! I have some new capris and bermuda shorts, funky sandals and cute tops - it is just so fun to get dressed now! I am under no delusions - I still have a lot of weight to lose, and my arms could be a lot thinner and my stomach could be flatter - but this is so much better than last year!
