First and Ten

October 12, 2010

Team Bunny BusOk, we found a bus. Team Bunny is on the move!

Here’s the situation:

Bunny has ten days before her doctor appointment where the Carb-Hating Doctor is going to weigh her. The doctor, as you may recall, has used some pretty sneaky tactics to guilt Bunny into losing some weight before this appointment. Guilt, basically. She’s made it clear that she personally will be sad and disappointed if Bunny hasn’t lost a few pounds.

Ten days, ten yards. Let’s see if Bunny can make a first down.

Here’s the play call for the next three days–Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday.

Breakfast:

A Bunny breakfast shake. This consists of:

  • unsweetened chocolate almond milk
  • natural peanut butter
  • chocolate whey protein powder
  • a banana
  • ground flaxseed.

This shake, by the way, complies with a lot of The Nutrition Diva’s tips on how to make the perfect smoothie. And Bunny likes it.

Lunch:

A Luna protein bar. Not a perfect lunch, but not bad. At least it provides protein and some vitamins. Easy, tasty, quick, and leaves time for a walk at lunch.

Dinner:

A turkey sandwich with whole wheat bread, avocado, and lots of tomatoes. Mustard, no mayo. More tomatoes on the side, with a touch of olive oil. Not a traditional dinner meal, but it’s easy, and it provides protein, whole grains, healthy fat. And, again, Bunny likes it. She also doesn’t have to cook it. She likes that, too.

Snacks:

A piece of fruit, string cheese, one Skinny Cow chocolate truffle bar.

No-nos:

Sugar, chips, guacamole, alcohol. Chips and guacamole are a danger because today is Taco Tuesday at the cantina across the street from the office, and sometimes chips happen. We want Bunny to avoid this for the next few a days. As for alcohol, Bunny wouldn’t likely even think about it on a weeknight, but we’re putting it on the list just in case.

Water:

Three of those big SmartWater bottles each day.

Exercise:

Bunny is to do ten minutes of stretching exercises every day, and take a walk every day at lunch.

So that’s the plan.

Bunny is not allowed to change the play at the line of scrimmage. (She can’t be trusted to call her own audible.) Any variances (for example, if the boss wants to go out to lunch) must be submitted to the Offensive Coordinator (your humble bloggers) before any changes are made.

Let’s see how Bunny does.
