R3P2D58 It's Catching Up To Me Now

Round 3 Phase 2 Day 58
1ml HCG (166.6 iu) Injection #21
R3 LIW: 162.0 03.19.08
Yesterday's Wt: 163.4
Today's Wt: 163.0
0.4 lbs LOST from yesterday
1.0 lbs over LIW

I weighed in at 6:30 this morning and I was the same weight from yesterday. I went to Albertson's to get some yogurt that was on sale and of course, they were all out. It was on sale last week as well and they were out. I picked up some South Beach Living frozen dinners cuz they are so handy for me to eat at work instead of going out. They are less expensive than a combo and I had coupons!! So I paid about $1.50 per dinner, cool huh? From there I went to Wal*Mart to price match the yogurts but they don't carry the Dannon Lite N Fit singles, only the large containers. I was trying to find some muffin top pans so I can make "oopsie rolls" from Cleo's website but it looks like I'll have to go to Target for these. I bought some spring form pans, a microwave rice cooker and lots of cookies!! I don't know what got into me but I bought some of those 100 calorie pack cookies, Wal*Mart has their own now in fudge striped shortbread, and some Murray's sugar free cookies in mint chocolate and mock Oreos. I don't feel like eating them right now but I figured if I decide to cheat, I will cheat with a 100 calorie pack. Easier said that done, right? I picked up some more frozen dinners for my daughter since she doesn't like my "diet" food. Whatever!! Sadly, my Wal*Mart only carries 2 South Beach Living dinners, Kung Pao chicken and Garlic Herb chicken. The Kung Pao is good for P3 because it does have peanuts, but I didn't buy any just the Garlic Herb Chicken and priced matched to boot. So, I got home and had to put everything away and I made a pit stop in my bedroom cause there was a funky smell coming from there. I put a couple of bags on the bed and looked in my bathroom and one of the cats left a pebbly present for me directly in front of the toilet. I knew immediately who it was and went looking for him. He knew he was in trouble because he saw me and went to hide. As I chase him through the living room, I find another present in there but it was only puke, arrgh!! So I quickly put all the frozen stuff away and then head to the bathroom to clean that mess then hurry and clean up the mess in the living room. I finally got around to weighing myself and giving myself the injection and had a loss of 0.4, yeah!! I did indulge a bit at dinner yesterday but I just wouldn't be me if I hadn't. All the treats and little delights are catching up to me now so I will need to behave because I don't have many injections left to finish this vial. I've been doing pretty good at resisting some temptations. For unknown reasons, there has been cake at work on different days and I did NOT partake in any of it. Some was left in the breakroom while I was eating my lunch but I ignored it. See, I can behave once in a while, haa!!

My daughter decided yesterday that she wanted to weigh herself because she's been eating like crazy during her spring break (another reason I'm broke). She couldn't figure out my scale so she asked me to help her. I showed her how it worked and she got on. That little brat weighed in at 97.6 lbs!!! She became upset because she's gained a whole pound in the last 2 weeks. My daughter is 15 YO and is only 4 foot 11 inches so don't freak out. I told her not to worry about it since she goes back to school next week and will drop it as soon as she starts her workouts again. Sheesh, if I only had that problem, right?

If those of you on P3 have a chance, please check out Cleo's link for some extremely P3 friendly recipes and tutorials. She is very creative with veggies and lo or no carb dishes. I have also been watching "I Can Make You Thin" on TLC. Paul McKenna has some very useful information which has been helping me as well. He has four golden rules and I really try and follow number 3 the most. That is "Eat Consciously". Basically it is to enjoy your food as you chew it, chew it at least 20 times and you have to put your fork and knife down as you do this. It has really helped me because I don't serve myself as much food and I can actually feel full after eating the smaller portion. Mr. McKenna also has very useful videos on his site. His show is on TLC and there are 2 shows tomorrow. So check him out if you can or if your curious. My curiosity is what got me to watch the replay of his show.

Yesterday's Menu:
B: 16 oz. coffee w/milk & Splenda, 2-12oz. black coffee
L: Wendy's Texas double cheeseburger w/o top bun and extra mustard, water, 2 starbursts
S: 1 biscuit w/pat of real butter, 1 6oz. yogurt w/tbl. of milled flaxseed
D: chicken breast cooked in coconut oil, covered w/Mont Jack cheese, sauteed mushrooms and green peppers

Dinner was delicious and very filling. I know it wasn't protocol friendly but it was satisfying. I haven't figured out how to plug all this into Fitday so I have no idea how many calories I ate yesterday.

Biz, it catching up to me now, luckily I only have a few injections left then I'll have to enter your P3 boot camp. By the way, I am not able to view it when I go to the forum, I'm signed in but it says I don't have sufficient privileges or something to that effect. Will you let me know what is going on?? Oh yeah, I like Marlene's diet so I try and emulate her but I forget sometimes that she's only 19 and it works for her, not for my 37 YO body, haaa!

B, how the heck are ya? I've been lurking at your blog as well and I don't get to comment sometime so don't feel bad since I do the same, haa!! Yes, those treats are catching up to me now!! Have a great weekend yourself!!

Becca, ha, I knew someone would catch that!! I just was disappointed myself for allowing myself to do that but now I feel it gave me the okay to continue that and that's not how I should be thinking. Don't be hating!! When I restart P3, I'm going to be in the same boat of fluctuations as I always have when I get to P3.
