This week was a very ROugh week for me. I have to admit that I am an emotional eater. When I get upset I turn to food. On many days this week I didn't have anyone to talk to so I turned to food. Here are the results of my week:
Previous Weight: 175
Current Weight: 176
Previous Waist: 31.5
Current Waist: 31
Previous Hips: 43
Current Hips: 43
Although the stress really got to me this week I have learned that I just have to keep going regardless of what is bothering me. One thing I am proud of is that I maintained my water all week 10 cups.
This weeks Challenge is Try Something New. I made my weekly food plan to include Jorge's recipes for ice cream and we are going to make shakes out of it. I'm excited about that. My entire family (including kids) are loving the new lifestyle as am I. They have big sweet tooths and this is the ticket. In addition I plan 3 snacks throughout the day AM, PM1 and PM2. Cheesestick, almonds and ice cream! yum!
I'm also going to do next week's goal this week too. 20 -30 minute walk everyday plus P90x. Tomorrow is Chest and Back +Ab Ripper X.When I did it for 3 weeks I saw some SERIOUS results and I'm ready for this time. I have my diet in check(at least planned out), I think the endorphines will help with the emotional eating and it keeps me busy. I pray this week we will see some serious changes. if not just keep moving.
OMG!!! I just discovered why I'm not having the loss I want! I was reading Amber's Blog on MeandJorge.com and she reminded me in a single serving do not go past 5/2. UGH!! On the days that I would soup and Sandwich I discovered that I was going over causing my insulin to spike aka adding the weight back on. Well now I know. I challenge you all to pay close attention to the words " less than 1 gram of sugar".
So my PB and J and soup lets break it down.
Wowbutter tastes just like peanut butter aka soy butter
- 4g of sugar and 8 Carbs for 2 TB 4- Dietary Fiber
Smuckers Sugarfree Preserves sweetened by Truvia
- 0g sugar and 4 Carbs for 1 TB
Nature's Own Double Fiber Wheat Bread
- (1 slice) Less than 1 g per slice and 13 Carbs 5-Dietary Fiber
So... total for the Sandwich is 5 sugars, 38 Carbs. 14g of Fiber so... 5/2.
So note to me Sandwich and water only please
