185 and pleased
Sunday, January 06, 2013
I am happy with that number, though i wish it was more.. (I have been watching too many Biggest Loser reruns recently). I already see myself in the 170s. My goal doesn't seem too far off even though there is still a LOT of work to do. The lowest weight that I can recall as an adult is 160 in 2006, and I was a size 10. I am really bottom heavy, but once I reach 140, I will be able to better assess what I can maintain... I am a shorty so 107-141 is a healthy weight range according to the gov.
This weeks plan is to keep on trucking. I have my decked out oatmeal for breakfast. I am sticking with the 1 TBSP of PB and refuse to go to Almond butter, because I am still a big kid, and love the flavor it gives. I am forgoing bread in my house. 3 times this week I made a PB, banana and honey sandwich before bed. Extra 300 cals at least. The only reason to have bread, is to make sandwiches, and it's not in my plan...
Lunch- TBD- Last week I had a bean and quinoa salad over lettuce that I found in Fitness mag. It was good although the flavors weren't THAT appetizing, sweet with agave, vinegar and sour with lime, But I ate it.
Dinner- I really like the pasta dish i make. It's 1/2 c uncooked pasta, 1-2 c swiss chard, 1 cup tomato marinara and tofu and some nutritional yeast. It's filling and yummy. I follow that with a vitamin.
I don't know what these cals add up to though. I should input them but I am too lazy. It's all generally unprocessed, but I need to know. I'm also going to add an apple and some almonds and maybe a red pepper so I have snacks and don't have the urge to make a sandwich at 10pm.
Also more green tea and water, and less dairy. I didn't have that much dairy last week, but I don't want it at all. I'm going to buy a container to carry my almond milk to work, because I only drink milk when it is in my AM coffee. No coffee shops carry almond milk, at least around me.
I hope you are all doing well and have a great week.
