Monday

Ok, nothing super special to report on today, but wanted to get in my Challenge Notes and my Thankful three. Last night was my first night with the whole no eating after 8:00 thing. Wow, so much harder than I thought. First it was mental, like at 7:55 PM I crammed some cashews down my throat thinking I would starve otherwise. I really wanted a Baskin Robin's Mint Chocolate Chip shake (extra thick) at like 9:30. It was hard not to go and get one. Tonight dinner was over kinda late so I couldn't even fit in any food before 8:00 because I was so full, but was actually afraid that I would get super hungry and not be able to eat. It is 9:47 and I have survived 1 hr 47 min after 8:00 without food. I better go to bed before my belly figures it out. As for ABs, well I felt like a cheater but I am counting it, I held a crunch for extended periods while holding my lap top on my belly reading other peoples blogs. Yes, not exactly what I had in mind when I said minimum 5 minutes of ABs, but it worked.

Finally, my Thankful Three

  1. Brie & French rolls
  2. Cotton Comfy skirts that are just as awesome as sweats
  3. 3% percent power left on the MacBook to publish this post

Great job on not eating after 8pm. I am remember when I started doing that and it was very hard. However, you will get used to it! Though, to be honest, I still miss my nightly glass of milk and oreos!

Good job not eating after 8! It has also crossed my mind that I might have to go to bed early in order to avoid eating.
