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!

    Salad jars look delicious. I may be inspired to try. Homemade bread is a trigger food for me. I just keep eating more and more until we are out of butter....
Sore after workouts, STRETCHING! Then do more the day after. So DVD Monday. Tuesday stretching, Wed do the DVD again.

    You can use the breadmaker to make the dough, and then roll it out into baguettes to bake in the oven for a lighter, fluffier inside!

    Yay for salad-in-a-jar! It's the only way that I find that I am able to get enough veggies in my diet.

Glad you had a great week.

    I use King Arthur's White Whole Wheat Flour instead of white AP flour or the more traditional whole wheat flours for everything. All the nutritional value of traditional whole wheat flour and a milder flavor and color than whole wheat. No need to mess with changing recipes, just use your favorite recipes. Store in plastic in your freezer.
