Snack: half english cucumber with hummus

Workout: 2o mins warmup on treadmill at 1.0 incline at 3.8 mph, 20 mins running at 4.5 mph...phew...running is hard!

Shared one serving of chocolate ice cream with hubby :)

Must do strength training tomorrow.

OPoCCtGP's making some rules for herself!

And she better hold on to them!

Eating out
Weekdays: With friends, only ONE dinner and ONE lunch allowed per week. Reschedule to other weeks if clash, where possible.
Fridays: Golden, no one touches Fridays. :)
Weekends: One eating out per weekend.

Tastes good, but the epitome of empty calories. Try to stay away from creamy drinks, however nice they might taste. Switch to red wine if necessary(!!), when dining out. House parties and birthdays are exceptions. :)

1:10 pm: One large cup tulsi tea.
3:20 pm: One cup black eyed peas curry, one truffle chocolate, one vegan chocolate cookie.
