Week 2 - Progress being made !

Monday, January 28, 2013

Today marks 2 weeks on track and as of today I’ve lost a total of 8 pounds !

I lost what I gained while on break from Thanksgiving on, including the time I was sick, plus an additional 3 pounds !!! I am now 4 pounds from my initial goal.

Since being on track –
~ I’ve had one off program meal – pizza for dinner at the end of week one.
~ The only sweets I’ve had are one serving of pudding the first week and meringue cookies.
~ I’ve done three 1000 calorie 3 day challenges.
~ I’ve done cardio most days, strength 2-3 times each week.
~ I’m adding more variety to my workouts.

The challenges are helping a lot. I’m paying a lot more attention to what I’m eating and how much on those challenge days. I also notice that it’s carrying over to non challenge days. I’m thinking before I eat, asking myself if I’m making healthy choices, looking at ways to add in more veggies and grains, even more than I was doing before. I’ve always planned my meals each day, but now I find that I’m more careful in my planning. I’m also much more choosey about my snacks.

Today’s Plan - 1000 Calorie Challenge Day 3
B – oat bran/juice
L – veg chili/brown rice
D – spinach soup/bread – 1
S – Greek yogurt, meringues, V8
Exercise – George Foreman video this AM, core/upper body circuits with elliptical this afternoon

Progress and Persistence, Not Perfection
