Wheat pancakes…really???

I stepped on the scale this morning and found a surprise.  I’ve lost 3.5 lbs.  There was another surprise in store for me today.  Wheat pancakes actually taste good.  I went to Denny’s and had them for the first time.  I had them with fruit, turkey bacon, and chicken sausage.  I skipped the hash browns, which can be like crack to me.  I used to have Waffle House on speed dial during medical school.  Just call me Ms. Scattered, Smothered, and Covered.  LOL.  I chewed slow and ended up not even eating an entire pancake before I was full.  I even went really light on the syrup.  I’ve found this chewing more times to be a Godsend.  I truly believe I was eating so fast that my body didn’t have a chance to signal it was full before I had plowed past the point of satiety.  I’ll have to see what surprises are in store for tomorrow.
5 days down, 16 to go until it’s a habit.  Wish me luck.
Much nub and fitness,

Don’t Stop ‘Til You Chew Enough

Treadmill…no.  Pool…no.  Tony Horton Ten Minute Workout…yes!  I got up this morning and banged out the full body workout.  That definitely woke me up.   My new eating strategy is to chew my food longer.  I’ve seen 15-20 chews per bite.  I’m now up to 15-22. Not so magically, I’ve gotten full sooner and eating less.  I have no idea when I started eating really fast, especially since I love the taste of food.  I’m excited.  The bonus is that I even passed up on the yummy looking doughnuts at work.  The glazed ones were calling my name, and I said “no!”
Wish me and my butt luck again because I’m going to make it happen in the 6 am spin class tomorrow.  Two days down, and 26 to go.
