When I got stuck in that moment, I put on my workout clothes, looked in the mirror and saw a line of muscle definition in my arm-- whoo hoo! Another reminder that it's worth it to pop some Advil and get on the mat, gurrl.
Newfound friend: Arm definition
I put on my ankle weights and did 25 reps. At this very moment, I'm in the middle of a break to watch the end of Drew Peterson: Untouchable (great performance by Rob Lowe, by the way) and will then....DO. THE. CARDIO. UGH. Arm definition. Look at picture of your arm definition, Parker and DO. THE. CARDIO. My arches are killing me from yesterday-- I really need new shoes.
Food today was OK. I attempted to make the sweet potato pancakes on the menu, but they ended up more like globs of sweet potato casserole...I added cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger for some flavor-- it did taste good, but I only had about half of the mushy mix!

Lunch, I had some grilled chicken made by Mr. Man which was delicious -- and then headed to my friend's baby shower. I wanted to make sure I didn't arrive hungry since I wasn't sure what was going to be on the menu. Fortunately, all the food was in "mini-portions" so I had 2 mini meatballs, 2 mini sushi rolls and a few grapes. No sweets, no cookies and no cupcakes....only one cocktail! ( ;
For dinner, I had the rest of the chicken and roasted some vegetables (carrots, broccoli and mushrooms). I am finally re-learning the feeling of full but not stuffed. For me, portions are definitely the key for weight loss...There are a lot of pounds in the space between full and stuffed! Dude, I could seriously put away 3 pieces of pizza right now...DAYUM!
OK, Advil is NOT working and Aunt Flo needs to pack her bags and GO. Did I mention, Grumpy??
