Thursday was a PP day 🙂
Daily weight loss: 0.2 lb/0.1 kg
Total weight loss: 51.7 lb/23.51 kg
Well, I’ve been playing with the same pound for 10 days… I’m going to do another 4 days of Pure Protein to see if I can get out of it!!! I need to lose just .25 pounds to be under it… seeming difficult to do! I cut out the extra coffees and drank almost 1.5 liters of water yesterday… and I’ll make today another PP day.
Breakfast: 2 tea eggs, 550 mL water, coffee
Lunch: Beef slices, garlic stems, 550 mL water
Snack: Earl Grey tea
Dinner: Stir-fried sirloin with one whole onion and garlic cloves
Snack: FF Greek Yogurt with splenda and bran
My exercise is walking to and from work each day, which is 1 mile/1.5 kg. And most nights I take an extra 30 minute around the complex I live in. 3x a week I do Couch to 5K, but have been lax on it since Lucy’s arrival.
The 2 things I have done this month are taking the stairs down each and every time (I work on the 4th floor) and up most of the time. This week has been difficult since I picked up some allergies in Shanghai and have been hacking away and having a hard time breathing, so the going up is usually restricted to one or two floors, going all the way to the 4th just about does me in!
The second thing I’ve done is used the squat toilets at work. Now I know most people, unfamiliar with these things, think “ewwww”… and often times they are, but the ones at my work are cleaned all day by our wonderful cleaning staff. (I’ll post pic later, as I forgot to take one yesterday). Anyway… when it started getting cold a few weeks ago, sitting on the pot was a freezing situation! The area is not warmed. So, I decided I would use the squat pots and viola’ no more cold hiney! The other advantage of course is my quads are getting stronger, and I can now manage to get up without grabbing a hold of the walls…. LOL. So, I feel I’m getting a little extra exercise in this way. When you are on a mostly protein diet you pee a lot, so I’m squatting a lot 😀
Well, I need to get ready for work… walking out the door in 10 minutes! I hope everyone has a great night’s sleep!

Edited to add two things… a link and a picture 🙂
This link is to ehow.com. I love this web site because you can find out anything on there!! Before going to India 3 years ago I looked up how to ride an Asian elephant… before moving to China…. http://www.ehow.com/how_2316739_use-chinese-squat-toilet.html
And this is NOT from my work. The squat toilets there are on a platform and much prettier than the one I used at the mall this evening 😀 But, this is a typical Chinese squat toilet. If you read the directions above, you’ll get the WHOLE picture much better!
