Look what I found...

At Shoppers Drug Mart of all places!

I'm still undecided on how I feel about it. It was exactly what I was hoping/expecting it to be--very thick yogurt. But I'm realizing that maybe I don't like very thick yogurt?? I had it today with some sliced banana, and I'm unsure how I feel about it, haha. I'll get back to you.

Yesterday I had an AMAZING booty camp class. We had a different instructor this week. Last night, we did circuits that were called "cha-battas" (or something that sounds like that??? I'm trying to google various things but am getting NOWHERE), where we would do a move for 20 seconds, rest for 10, and repeat for 3 minutes. We did that with squat jumps, planks, and pushups. I really liked it!

I think I liked it because I can actually hold a plank for 20 seconds (unlike... any longer period of time), so it was less demoralizing than usual for me. ;)

So I'm feeling good about exercise lately but I'm really struggling with food. For some reason, I CAN'T STOP EATING!!! Even knowing I am weighing in tomorrow doesn't seem to matter! I do have faith that this will pass, and I'll be back in my groove, but it's annoying. I have no middle ground--as soon as I veer from the plan a little bit, it's like I'm trying to eat as horribly as possible "while I still can," before I'm back to eating healthily. I really need to work on eating in moderation all the time.

I DO have a plan to get back on track this coming week. I want to plan all of my meals, and, if I can manage, pre-prepare a lot of them on Sunday really thoroughly--for example, put together all my lunches, dinners, and snacks and label them all so I can just grab and eat all week.

I'm not 100% sure I'll have a chance to do so much prep this weekend-- my landlord has suddenly decided to put my house up for sale (my house has three apartments in it). He doesn't think it will sell, he's just listing it for two weeks to see if he can get a crazy-high price for it, but there are open houses tomorrow and Sunday.

I probably don't want to be making multiple meals and pre-packing them while strangers traipse through my house. Plus the added stress of the possibility that he MIGHT sell my house is not helping matters. I know that I can stay until September, but I really like my current landlord, and I'm afraid of a new one.

The good news is that when my landlord called me to tell me about putting the house up for sale, I told him to buy me a new fridge. And he's going to! I'm very, very excited about that.

So, in sum...
Booty Camp: Good.
Food Plan: Needed.
Fridge: Coming Soon.
Greek Yogourt: Undecided.

Maybe it works in different kind of yogurt-y ways, like as part of a Greek kind of meal?

Sounds great! I'm really impressed with your exercise regiment. You inspire me.
I love Greek yogurt, though I do put fresh fruit, oats, slivered almonds, or some other thing to jazz it up. I understand it's higher in protein than any other.
Keep up your great work!

CY - maybe it would make a mean tzatziki!

Jackie - Thank you so much. I'm so glad I'm in this boot camp class. I've been struggling with my eating a LOT lately, and if I wasn't committed to a fitness class (i.e. I've already paid for it!), I'm sure my exercise would be suffering too!
