That's a 3.3 lbs loss! How the hell did that happen?! Does this mean I am going to have a gain on my next weigh-in or not move from where I am now??? I really hope not but I have that fear in me. These last two weeks I have had a couple days where I have eaten very little, I think that might be something I need to do. I've heard of other people doing this, I think it's called calorie cycling? Going to plan a day where I don't eat anything until later that night, and that just being a sensible dinner.
As for the challenges I was supposed to do this week for the BLC 18, totally failed in doing them. Just lacked all motivation this week. I did get in my strength training but didn't really get in my walks for my 5k training program. Did 2 of those walks yesterday, was going to do all 3 but my dog went hiding from me. Poor Hally, think I might of pushed her too far and she had had it. When I tried to get her she dove under my bed. I know I could of gone without her but she's my walking buddy! Didn't seem right, or maybe it's my own insecurities...
So plan for this week, got to keep up with my walks for 5k, can't do this make up walks again. Also need to start using the fruit I have for when I have munchies, especially late at night. Ok, that's it for now.

Wow, another 2.4lb loss, hmm wonder if this is going to be a pattern. Ok, so for the exciting news......I met my first goal! WOOT! WOOT! That's right, 5% body weight loss!!! Just need to keep going and not give up. Next goal is to get to 10% body weight loss, I can do this!
So what happened this week? Well after some cheating and giving in to the munchies and peanut butter addiction and gaining some weight from it I kind of snapped. Had 2 low calorie days, slipping back into old habits but hey, not as bad as I used to be. Remember a few years back I snapped and was only eating one protein bar for my breakfast and one for my lunch convinced that is all I need. I wanted to replace ALL meals with a protein bar but had some sense that it might not of been the most healthiest thing to do. When I told my Dr., at the time and a few others what I was doing well I kept on getting yelled at that you can't replace a meal with a protein bar. But why not? You got your calories, fat, protein, carbs, fiber.....everything you need in a meal. Ok ya I know that was bad.
So from this point on I am going to be good, not give in to the munchies, and if I do not follow it up with low calorie days. Going to try my best to have 3 meals a day, snacks when I'm hungry and learn to listen more to my body during the day. It's a work in progress but I'll get there!
Things I need to work on, getting my strength training done in morning! I am doing better with doing my 5k training in the morning. This week I finished with walking 2 miles on Friday, tomorrow I start week 3 of my 5 week 5k training program.
Another thing I need to work on is my cooking. I need to start making more things for one person, I am still cooking for a family. So I am having the same dish for 4 days, can we say boring? I'm not sure if I am going to change how I cook or just portion out and freeze some of the left overs. Need to do some more research on this.
Another thing I want to work on is to learn belly dancing. A challenge I failed doing was to try something new this week for the BLC 18. There is some great videos on youtube so really there is no excuse except for my own laziness and lack of motivation. Hopefully the more weight I lose the more energy and motivation I will have.
On a side note, I've lost 17lbs so far but I don't feel like I have. I still feel fat and bloated and my pants and shirts still fit snug. Talked to Mom about this and she told me that I'm not really going to feel different until I lose a good amount, like 50lbs. Since she has been where I am now I am going to listen to her and keep on shuffling on. Oh and I also lost an inch on my waist and an inch on my hips, but arms and thighs have remained the same.

Ok so after to 'unhealthy' eating days, today i got back on track. For the 3rd installment for a day in the life of my belly.
Breakfast was my normal banana tropical smoothie.
Snack was a cup of sliced strawberries with half cup of 2% cottage cheese.
Lunch was a peanut butter and jelly sandwich on whole wheat bread, toasted. Just 1T of PB and1 T of Welch's Natural Strawberry Spread/jelly. Also had 2cups coffee with half cup skim milk.
Dinner was cup of left over asparagus risotto with 2.7 oz grilled chicken and a lemon caper sauce.
Dessert/after dinner snack was 3.1 oz extra sharp white cheddar cheese.
I need to make some desserts so I have something to munch on at night. I haven't bought any snack mixes or anything like that because I know what will happen, I will eat it all up in one sitting. When I make desserts for some reason I can pace myself better than with a box or a bag.
