As a follow-up to my last post which should have been a full post I’ve lost 1.8 lbs! I asked my counselor to bump it to 2 but she laughed at me. 🙂 I have finished all the Jenny Craig food as of last night but have already started counting calories on my own food since what I had left was just a meal or two. It is not easy! Counting the ounces etc. is easy, but how much cheese was melted on that chicken, did I really eat a cup of salad or was it two? It is tedious, which is why the Jenny Craig food is so simple! By the way they have changed their name to “Jenny” and dropped the Craig and Mariah Carey is now the new spokesperson – not sure I can relate to her.
I watched the streaming video of the new announcement of Jenny with some great Doctors and Mariah. It was a good video but I still don’t really relate to having stars be the spokesperson. She has the money to have people cook for her and train her to get back into shape. I’d really rather see regular people succeeding and put them on-screen. Here is the link if you want to watch it. http://www.jennycraig.com/jennylive
I have definitely gone over my calorie count on a day or two but I’m getting used to it. I’m trying to keep to 1200 calories a day. I’m also moving more. I was up at 5:30 am the other day so I vacuumed instead of just sitting and drinking coffee. I’ve been toying with the idea of cutting out chemicals from my diet. That would be extremely hard. I mean going to food that are not processed, more natural nothing that had added chemicals, preservatives etc. The one issue is that its much more expensive to eat that way. I’m just not sure I can really do it.
So, the goal this week is to move more – 5,000 steps a day and to really count absolutely everything that I put in my mouth and if I cannot find the nutrition information then I shouldn’t eat it – right? I’d like to get to 8,000 steps a day like they said on the video – wish me luck! I have a couple hours before I have meet my new potential landlord so I think I’ll go for walk. Have a great day everyone!
