Are you preparing for fall and winter? Now is the time I am already focusing on swimsuit weather for next year. I plan to shed fat and get into a cute swimsuit if I have to duct tape myself into it. Come hummus or chlorinated high water, this will happen.
I am already thinking about making my pumpkin caramel cheesecake recipe. You can make this into bars or into mini cheesecakes too (and you can skip the caramel as well).
Now what I had yesterday… First of all, here’s the plan I’m following and here is the introduction post to the Mid-Year Resolution Challenge. While you look at what I’m doing, be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled to give some ideas, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). I am, however, here with you to cheer you on when you’re so skinny you will have to watch slipping through the cushions of your couch.

You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for the daily play-by-play and to see what I’m doing. Whee!
I ate this:
Breakfast: Caffeinated Beverages. Deadlines!
Snack: A grape tomato as I run through the kitchen
Lunch: Low carb nachos filled with nomminess
Dinner: Grilled hot dog with cheese, onion, mustard
Exercise: Walked and worked for 2.2 hours at my treadmill desk at 1 mph.
Notes: I have so much mental clarity because of the exercise that I get so much more done.
What I learned:
I won’t weigh more than I should a week, even if I’m sure I know better.
Even though my clothes are looser and I feel thinner, that doesn’t mean the scale is going to show it. In fact, water weight can create fluctuations of up to 8 pounds per day! Not encouraging, is it?
I hereby slap my own eyeballs for peeking early and will wait until at least Sunday to make sure I’m on task for a loss next Monday at TOPS.
I really do know better.
