Week 1 is over...
Monday, February 27, 2012
Okay so I made it through week 1. Not so bad. I can't believe how much better I feel... I haven't felt bloated which is a huge issue for me. I am making the right choices. I find that putting things into the nutrition tracker at the start of my day helps me a lot with making the right decisions. And if I want something a little worse for me I move everything around to make sure I am still in the ranges I need to be.
I did eat a chicken cheese steak with french fries on Saturday. I should have been a little better about that. I ate the whole thing!!! I couldn't believe it. But I still put it in my tracker. My boyfriend asked me if I was going to, and I said absolutely. Honesty is the best thing... this way next time if I want to eat it I know that I can only have half of it. But last night they asked me to eat chinese food with them and I said absolutely not. I already cheated on Saturday I am not doing it again today. I ate my yummy tuna casserole instead. I also looked up how many calories was in the food that they were eating... 1200!!! I looked at my boyfriend and I laughed. I was like that is the whole calorie intake for the day! We told his mom too because she is trying to lose weight too and she thought my tuna casserole was fattier because of the pasta. No way I used the no yolk pasta and I used the recipe I got on here.
And the best news yet... I lost 2 pounds this week! All my planning really paid off... I didn't even exercise this week because of my hurt shoulder but I still managed to lose 2 pounds. Talk about motivation to keep it going!
My boyfriend is getting a new job that would mean I have to drive my car to the bus and park it there... and pay 5 dollars a day! But I have thought of a better plan. My parents live pretty close to one of the bus stops probably a 15-20 min walk. So if this does end up happening, I am going to ask them if I can park my car at their house and walk to the bus stop every morning... That will be a huge help in my exercising issues...
Well just thought I would write down the experience of my first week... the 2 pounds were just what I needed as motivation to keep it going... Hope everyone else is having the little successes that I am having as well... Happy Monday!
