Week 33: from 132.4 to 131.4

Lost a pound!

This feels GREAT! Since June, I've stayed at 132 with little exception, and I know it's silly, but I started to think I couldn't lose any more... It's coming off. I tried to stay to the lower end of my calories and took one nice hike (I have been hiking 2x a week, but I woke up with a stiff neck this weekend, so I only got one hike in this week). With school and work in full swing, it is pretty impossible to take the daily walks I like so much, but I run around a lot at work, park far away, always take the stairs (and all of those other little things Yahoo Health or whoever recommends!), etc.

I am happy. Here's what I'm eating...

Bun! It's basically a steak (or whatever) salad with cold rice noodles and a vinegary/salty/garlicky sauce:

Garlic shrimp (and I used butter), with brown rice and a green salad:

Grilled ribeye steak (I used the leftovers for the bun), corn on the cob, and a cucumber/tomato salad:

Salmon with pesto (bought at a farmer's market here- made with sea asparagus!) over dinosaur kale:

My neck still hurts, but I'm feeling good about how my brain is managing the stresses of life (c'mon body, follow suit!). Things are intense, but so so good.

I hope all is well with you, Sparkfriends! Please have a good week!

    emoticon emoticon emoticon on your weight loss. But don't forget that your bathroom scale doesn't know everything. You are doing fabulous and I'm sure your body composition is changing for the better every week. Last week I had the opportunity to weigh in on an InBody 520. A lot of health clubs or weight loss facilities are getting InBody 720 or 520 Monitors, and charge a fee to use them. I bought a Groupon, and I'm so glad I did. It was totally worth it. You get a printout of your complete body composition, water retention, muscle mass, body fat, resting metabolic rate, and so much more. emoticon
By the way, your food pictures always make me hungry. emoticon
