Getting back and more active with SP and really being honest and dedicated about tracking both food and exercise is helping me get back and stay on track.
I am not planning to lose this weight at lightning speed, but I am happy with the 1.2 lbs in this first week of "Buckled in". It is working. I started last week at 151.6 and then was at 150.6 for most of the rest of the week. I really thought there must be something wrong with my scale.
I got my workouts pumped up a good deal last week, hitting my calorie burn goal with ease... of course this week my Achilles tendinitis has decided it wants to come hang out and drive me nuts... so I may well be walking my way to a 2000 calorie burn, and doing gentler, non-jumpy sorts of things to rest them. I have no choice but to run on Saturday, since that is my Army PT test. I am also trying to stay away from my beloved barefoot tennies, just to ease up on those tendons.
Meanwhile, I remain buckled in and my sticking tight really showed. I only had one day over calories and that was going out with hubby for our 26th anniversary early. But I asked for a box and put half of my food aside before I started eating... so the calorie intake was over, but limited. And I had a delicious lunch on Saturday! A small indulgence and a 2nd day of treat!
I got up Saturday and made my family way happy by making my (part) Whole Wheat Cinnamon Applesauce pancakes (
). These are truly the only pancakes my husband likes. I also had plenty of extras to freeze for toastering later. I sauteed some apples in a tiny bit of butter and cinnamon as a topping and didn't need syrup.
Right now I am just trying to get my brain in gear from the time change. The Sunday is never really a problem for me, it's always the stupid Monday... I stayed up "too late" (ie. the former 10:30 pm, now 11:30) and had to get up "early" (the former 5:30 am, now 6:30)... I will prolly crash hard tonight.
Oh well, on into a new week! Hope everyone is ready for it too!
