Weight Loss, feeling better, and how I am going to do this!

Saturday, January 12, 2013

Well Its only Saturday, but I snuck into the bathroom this morning and weighted in a couple days early. I just wanted to see where I was at and if what I did this last week was a good thing.

I LOST 2.4lbs!

Yep, I want to do a cartwheel!

This week wasn't perfect.

I did my 30 day shred dvd one day. I about died! LOL My legs were so sore. Last time I was working out doing Yoga, I had a similar experience. Anyone have any idea what I can do to prevent my legs getting so stiff after workouts? I found myself walking like a penguin even 3 days after the workout. hmm. I need to research that. I wonder if I need to stretch differently/more/something.

Even though I only worked out once, I did do 50 jumping jacks every time I did a shower. haha That is awesome! I feel like I'm about to die and then jump into the shower. I like to watch my body in the mirror and imagine what its GOING to look like.

I ate much better than I have been. Now, I did go to Applebees and had a few drinks and then we ended up at Red Lobster one night. I had never been there before. LOL YUM! I teased my husband and asked him why he had been holding this place back from me! If I wasn't being more mindful of myself I would have prob ate myself silly! I had a few shrimp, a roll, a salad, and a billion glasses of water! LOL But I looked on Pintrest for healthy lunches. I found this AMAZING salad idea and even got my hubby loving them too!

TADA this was Monday's lunch for hubby and I! Mason Jar salads! They are sooo good! I loved them! So did hubby!

So for the last week, I have been eating tons of fruits and veggies. I have ate special K cereal every morning for breakfast. Its my favorite. I actually like it! LOL And then I have a snack of an orange or some celery and a bit of peanut butter or applesauce. And I've been having either soup or salad for lunch. I totally enjoyed it this week!

I also have started making my own bread. I don't eat much bread as it is, but my hubby eats lots of it because he likes sandwiches for lunch. But I got a bread maker for Christmas and since we haven't bought a loaf of bread since. The more I think about it, homemade bread has to be so much better for you. You know everything that goes into it.

Here is a loaf of white bread I made. This next week I want to learn how to make some whole wheat bread.

I am really happy with the progress that I've gotten so far.

I've not given up on my diet coke but I've really scaled that down. And I have been drinking more water.

I'm really starting to feel the momentum. I CAN and I WILL do this!

--Love ya'll

Thanks for letting me vent!
