whip it...

Bad habits are hard to break.  Thinking through decisions at times  like how this is going to affect the band can be tricky business.  It's hard to tell whether or not you'll be able to digest a bit of anything.  Bread is the main culprit, but there are some veggies one should stay clear of or just eat things that are too fiberous, stringy, or tough.  Chew, chew, chew.  Don't flush with water while you eat.  This is a bad habit to break if you just started eating and you choke up from a tight band.  Bands can be tight for a number of reasons.  I've noticed if I'm stressed out, I can't always get food down.  I take it as a signal I need to drink more water before I eat again. 
I've grown fond of nippling on apples and sucking the juice from the rind. The rinds can be difficult to digest.  If you eat it whole and you don't chew it finely enough, it could get stuck. I haven't done this myself, but I can see how it could happen now. 

Speaking of whipping bad habits in the bud, I've been doing well to train every day this week, but today.  So, three out of four ain't bad.  I can't skip again until next Thursday though now.  I'll track that progress through the next few days. I really love Jillian Michael's 30 Day Shred.  It's  a 20 minute circuit of cardio, strength training, and abs.  If you do everything along with it, you will sweat an average amount and burn some calories.  I need to wear the Polar Heart Rate monitor next time to report back the calorie counts. 

I really want the scale to say 260 by next Wednesday, but I think that is a big goal and could tread on poor band behavior.  Again, you really need to think about actions, plan meals in advance, or know your healthy options.  My new trick is to grab a handful of nuts to satifsy a milk hunger craving if I need an energy booster.  

Okay, now I need to sleep now. Another important factor in weight loss.  I'll post on this tomorrow and follow up on my supplement regiment. What I think about supplements, and whatever else I come across that's interesting.
