I’m doing so much better….and have the weight loss to prove it!
I wasn’t going to weigh today…since I really just started on Tuesday, but I decided to just see where I was at. No expectations really, because like I said earlier, most people lose a lot of weight that first week, but I’m the total opposite & usually lose more the 2nd – 3rd weeks. So imagine my surprise when I see that I’ve lost 2 lbs. already! Whoo Hoo!
Unfortunately we already have plans to eat at Chili’s this weekend so I’m really hoping I don’t screw it up. Just have to make wise choices while out. It can be done!
So, here’s my menus the past couple days:
Day 5 – Breakfast – None (I know that’s not good for you, but I just didn’t have time)
Lunch – Grilled chicken sandwich, side salad with low-fat balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
Snack – yogurt parfait from McD’s
Dinner – Baked potato with light butter & light sour cream, fairly large size salad with fat free Italian dressing.
Exercise – Stairstepper – 35 minutes. Free weights – 10 minutes. Situps - 50
Day 6 – Breakfast – 2 slices whole wheat toast with light butter
Lunch – low fat soft pretzel with very small amount of nacho cheese
Snack – I may or may not have (but probably may have) had 2 Girl Scout thin mint cookies
Dinner – Baked potato with light butter & light sour cream & turkey sandwich on whole wheat bread with lettuce, avocado & light mayo.
Exercise – Elliptical – 30 minutes. Walking – 20 minutes. Situps – 100
I don’t list it, but I always drink lots of water (approx. 60-80 oz. per day)
So there you have it. I’ll be back on Sunday night or Monday to post how I did over the weekend (which is always the hardest time for me).
