Nestle Fitnesse 14-Day Challenge Day 3 Update

Today is essentially the fourth day of the challenge but I will only be giving you an update of what has happened for the first three days. I have so far been able to stick to the diet plan except for one dinner where I indulged in the tuna pasta I made when a friend came over. I didn't overeat though. I just had a few spoonfuls. So I guess I am on the safe zone still. Good thing is that I was able to burn off the calories the next morning because I squeezed in a brisk walk routine for about an hour (my legs still felt a little sore and I didn't want to push it to run) yesterday. I am not going to make this a habit though, eating much and compensating on exercise. I should be sticking to my diet and it's not negotiable.

Here's what I normally have for breakfast and dinner. I just change the fruit (sometimes I have an apple, sometimes a pear, other days either kiwi or banana):

If you want to know how much cereal I have, here's how it looks like on a flat platter:

Lunch normally revolves around vegetables or some lean chicken with vegetables. I'm being a good girl. I'm stuffing myself with vegetables. I bet my mom will be all happy to know this. LOL!

Chicken and Tofu Slices with Bell Pepper and Sundried Tomato Slices and Sauce
Broccoli Stir Fry with Tuna Chunks

I tried just bringing a bar of Nature's Valley Honey and Oats bar to work last night so I can snack on it but I never felt energized. I was sleepy the entire shift. I impatiently waited for 6AM. And this morning, I slept around 7AM and then woke up at 1PM. My sleeping time is pretty screwed and I need to fix this or else I am putting myself in jeopardy. I know I need ample rest. But since I am not feeling a tad bit sleepy, I am off to the pool and then come back maybe after an hour and sleep until it's about time to go to work again. I will keep y'all posted.

And for some self-worship, here's a little picture of me before I went to work last night. Sorry for the undried the picture to VOTE FOR MY TEAM in the Nestle Fitnesse Challenge. :-)
