Week 1 = Success
Wednesday, August 14, 2013
I am thrilled to say that I lost 1.6 lbs this past week! That was just a bit above my goal so I am a happy camper! Who knew that exercising and watching would I ate would help me lose weight?!
Anyway, normally on my weigh-in day I swing by McDonald's and grab breakfast and then eat something just as unhealthy for lunch - because I "deserved" it. But today I packed my healthy lunch and some healthy snacks instead. I didn't bring anything for lunch because I flat ran out of time to make anything. It was either make lunch & wear my jammies to work or get dressed and trust myself to get something healthier for lunch. It is entirely possible that I'll just eat my yogurt & strawberries for lunch instead of buying something anyway. This afternoon at work we are having an ice cream social, and I plan to treat myself. Since I work for a grocery chain, Save A Lot, I'm sure it'll be some of our goodies.
I'm making a new recipe tonight for dinner and I got up early to put it all in the crockpot before I left for work (another reason lunch didn't get made). It's a Teriyaki Chicken recipe that I found on Pinterest. However, when I went to click on it to take me to the actual recipe page, I couldn't find the complete instructions, so I had to "wing-it". Hopefully it turns out ok!
The weather is absolutely gorgeous here in St. Louis so I'm planning a lunchtime walk for today. I'm a little (ok a lot) behind on my exercise minutes for the month, so I need to step it up if I'm going to make it to 1000 minutes.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Wednesday!
