2 pounds lost, woooot!


Friday, January 18, 2013

Yaaaay! I reached my goal of two pounds lost this week. That is the number I am shooting for each week. 2 pounds a week for a whole year in 104 pounds! Doesn't seem like such a small bit of weight after realizing that. =) So far I've lost 5 this month. I have 9 more pounds to go until I am back at my lowest weight. I've been feeling a little impatient to get back there but I know I'll see that number again soon.

Hmm, what else..

Oh! I love eggs and lately have been on an omelete kick. I use one full egg and then two egg whites. I love cheese though so I end up putting a slice of Velveeta (40 cals) and/or a thin slice of cream cheese on it. My omelette is between 230-250 calories depending and it is sooo yummy. And I don't feel guilty about the cheese either. It's extra yummy when I have mushrooms to add =)

I also love greek yogurt with frozen berries and honey. OHHHH how I love it. I swear it is my favorite treat. It keeps me sane when I want something sweet. I love the fage 2% greek yogurt but the 0% is alright. I don't shun a bit of fat in my food because I notice it keeps me fuller longer and I don't eat as much. Everything in moderation.

I downloaded the c25k app and have been using it for both my treadmill time and my exericise bike time. When it says "run!" I pedal super fast. Oh my goodness, it works me out. lol. I started up with my strength training too and I know it is going to help me see better results. =)

Anyways, I hope everyone has been well1 Have a great weekend!

    Healthy fats are good, and yes they will keep you fuller longer. Fiber and fat are the 2 hardest to digest macronutrients. Keep striving to replace unhealthy fats with healthier fats, then you can enjoy the satiety along with knowing you're eating something good for you.

Have you tried cottage cheese in your omelets? Since it is actually whey not cheese it tends to be healthier than regular cheese. Also, instead of melting, it incorporates into the eggs and can help add fluffiness. You could also try some ricotta cheese instead. I've done both and while you don't really taste the cheese, it does add to the flavor. How about adding some green with spinach (saute it for a few minutes first) or broccoli? You can add some red with tomatoes (cherry, grape, or even diced romas would work well). You can add reds, greens, oranges, or yellows with peppers. If you added some fruit on the side you can add in a whole range of colors. All of those colors will give you great flavors, wonderful vitamins and minerals, and fiber that will keep you fuller longer.

Congrats on your weight loss!
