As unprepared as I was today, cycle two felt incredibly similar to cycle one. The only thing I did differently was add some kidney beans to my salad. I had a version of a Catalina salad, but without the fritos...the best part! Oh well! It wasn't bad.
I woke to a disappointing and discouraging weigh in though. I want to start and end each cycle by knowing my numbers. Weight & measurements. Tuesday I weighed, even though I knew I should wait until today. I should have waited because I weighed two more pounds heavier today than I did on Tuesday. I know weigh fluctuates which is why I don't weigh often but it is still discouraging. I have been thinking about it all day too. I am trying to put it out of my mind. This would normally make me stress eat out of emotion but I am not going to do that this time. This time is different. Progress is progress and even with my weigh in number today I have made progress.
I have one week until the wedding though so I need to make sure that this progress keeps happening! I need to make sure I am getting my fitness minutes in. I didn't want to but I made myself go for a 2.2 mile jog this evening and I am glad that I did. It felt great. My legs are tired. I really pushed myself to go faster. I also need to make sure that I am getting my water in as well. I haven't been getting the 8 cups in daily.
Cycle one stats:
Starting weight: 173
Current weight: 166
Loss in cycle 1: 7 pounds
Not bad. I wish my weight from Tuesday would have been my ending weight to cycle one but what can ya do. I know I didn't cheat. I know I followed plan. I just hope this isn't a plateau already! Only time will tell.
