Today being a Saturday was my weigh in day (Obviosuly)
With last weeks celebration I was certain the scale would NOT be my friend today. My goal however was to not see a gain.
I was surprised when the scale said 178.8 lbs```````` WOHOOO````````
Do you see me doing the happy dance here!!!
It was funny-when the scale said 178.8--I for a second thought it was saying 188 something and I almost skipped a heartbeat-until the Receptionist said-oh nice you did have a loss-and I'm like'What?' hehe
On another note I am now in the 70's wohoo!!
I haven't been in the 70's since I got pregnant with the twins!!
I can't wait till I get to the pre twin pregnancy weight which was 174 lbs!!
That is my current GOAL-to reach there as quickly as possible!
I realized I hadn't taken a photo in quiet some time!! Thanks Sugar!
So here I am, I can definitely see some changes in my cheeks,(if not any other place lol)
Thursday was a very hectic day for us, Big bro had a Musical Concert he was participating in school so we had to attend that right after work, which meant, no cooking, which meant bad choices in food .
I am on a mission to get to the early 160's ASAP.
So I practiced all that the Leader keeps telling us in the meeting about Portions etc.
The normal Salad that you get is a HUGE one, not that it is bad or anything to have a HUGE salad, BUT most often than not, that means I wouldn't listen to my bodies hunger cues-which is what I am trying to do lately,
I put my food away (even if it is salad or my favorite beans soup) right when I start feeling satisfied -
-Notice I did not say FULL--I don't want to be FULL I want to just feel satisfied.
Something I learned on the Program and I am trying very hard to practice.
Anyways back to my salad-they have a Side salad and a Meal salad.
I asked to see how big the Side salad was and ordered that, with a Coffee (with Splenda)
I skipped the Dressing altogether (as suggested by the Program) and went for Ketchup and Vinegar instead. The Caesar salad dressing has 230 calories and the croutons (which I skipped too) had 60 calories!
The Kids (including the BIGGEST KID) had fun in the play area in McDonalds
I worked out 4 days out of 5 which was my goal for this week.
2 days of Treadmill running and 2 days of Elliptical
I did not do the 30 day Shred due to my schedule last week.
My Goal for next week :
- Get back to the 30 day Level 2
- I also want to "TRY" and run outside and see how the knee feels.
- Use minimum extra points.
- Track everything (which I do anyways)
Since my injury last year, I am still quiet intimidated with pavement running.
If it is sunny next week I want to try and squeeze some runs outside may be start with one and see how that feels.
That's it for now-what's going on in your world?
