Day 5 - Pleasantly Pleased
Wednesday, May 21, 2014
In the last 5 days, I lost 3.2 pounds. I know that the first week is a huge weight loss and then it will taper off to a half a pound - 2 pounds per week...if I am lucky.
Last year, I set up in my "Other Goals" a personalized goal that I click off anytime I lose weight, regardless if it is a 0.2 lb. I am then able to see some sort of progress each week.
My last year's healthy habits are slowly coming back. I still need to drop the soda and pick up more water. My fruits and veggies seem to be okay. I added a personalized goal to eat a salad a day. I missed one day this week. I may need to eat a salad every other day, though. I get the romaine hearts with is so much better than iceberg lettuce. I add a packet of flavored tuna, slivered almonds, several baby bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, 2-3 dried figs, salad dressing and a sprinkle of shredded cheese.
My work is very close to home, so I do take that luxury to come home to eat my salad.
Well, getting off to get ready for work...hoping to work out tonight.
