Today was my First day of boot camp.

6 mini shrooms: 30 cal.

6 cherry tomatoes 10 cal.
1 tsp. olive oil. 60 cal.
calories in at : 1395..woohoo.
Elliptical: 715 cal. 1 hour with 5 min. cool down.
36 modified push ups.
Went to the weight machines and did lower spine and glutes...
Upper back muscle
and the fly machine for my shoulders and chest...
It was 25lbs
then 15 lbs
then 25 lbs respectively.
The only one I really felt was the fly one....
I don't really want to build these muscles, just sculpt them.
Tomorrow will be my 5.6 mile hike.
Might do some lunges with that.
Don't really know what to do with the bottom half toning wise.
I hope everyone did well today..
Oh and I just wanted to give a quick something on what I say to myself in the grocery store.
I bought groceries today.
Going through the aisles can be a time bomb unless you know exactly what you are looking for.
So here is my internal dialogue while traversing the store.
I don't say "mmm....nummy' when I look at junk food.
In a scottish accent (It's usually in my head...but I could say it out loud...depending on how tempting it is...)
I say "It's crap. Crap. crap. and more crap...cause it (the item in question) Is usually surrounded by similar junk.
It could go crap, crap, good (gum) crap crap good (pretzels or salsa) crap good crap...
and so on.
I label it before I know if I want it or don't want it.
I also know just what it is I am buying, because I have certain things I like to eat now.
yogurt and peaches...eggs and whole grain bread...soup like beef and barley etc.
I am miffed if they don't have my breakfast turkey sausage. I eat tacos occasionally but no flour tortillas, only corn.
I make pizza occasionally..but use whole grain crust, less cheese, turkey pepperoni..(the turkey is a versatile creature)....I love sun dried tomatoes...so those go on as well.
The majority of items in my cart are fruits, veggies and proteins and whole grains.
I load up my cart with these...fruit is my new desert.
Things that never go in the cart..
oh, I'm sorry, did I say popcorn...lol.
ice cream, cookies and chips. I don't buy regular sodas or sugary cereal..blocks of cheese cause I will eat it.
I buy 2 percent cheddar pre-shredded.
I don't buy lean cuisine, smart ones, rice cakes or 100 calorie packs.
They leave me hungry.
Olives and pickles are great to buy cause you can eat ten little pickles and still not kill your calorie budget.
So....That is how I do the grocery store.
I hope you guys are doing well...
One day down...28 more to go.
