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!

    Congratulations on your weight loss! And you're making plans to lose even more. That's really good! I should use my crockpot more. Your teriyaki chicken sounds yummy! I'm sure you didn't need a recipe to make it.

    Hmm, indeed, who would have thought that eating right and exercising would get you to lose weight?!

    Keep it up! It's great that you are making the decision to not completely indulge in "treats" in celebration of your weight loss. I think that is what has always stopped me from progressing....I start doing well, then I reward myself with a good meal and then cannot get back on track. So, now I have to respectfully decline when someone offers to take me out for a "celebration dinner". If I do not have the will power to stay away from those high fat foods at a restaurant then I would rather not even go. I have decided my health is more important than satisfying my taste buds.

    Keep up the good work and have a blessed day!
