Week 4: 1.4lb down - 7.8lbs to get back to GOAL
Wednesday, September 17, 2014
Well at least the scale is going in the right direction but once again I'm only down 0.2lbs again. I believe my problem is snacking. I've been planning my 3 main meals a day but I haven't been planning my snacks. When I look at the end of the day, my snacks have been adding up to like 300-500 calories. That's a lot of extra calories.
I know that my issue is finding snacks that are low in carb and high in protein. I have a protein bar that I love Quest Nutrition and they are high in fiber 18g and protein 20g but the calories range from 160-200. Then there are nuts but they also high in calories (and good fat). My issue is that just eating nuts or just eating the protein bar doesn't do anything for my hungry level. I believe I need to go back to eating lean protein with hummus or lean protein with non-starchy veggies. I feel like if I could eat eggs (insensitive) that would make my snacking a lot more doable.
Anyway, my marching order for this week is plan out snacks so that a snack is a snack and not a meal.
BLC26 starts today. I told myself that BLC25 was going to be my last round but I just couldn't tear myself away from the support of a team. So I've switched team (
mixed emotions) to a team that offers support and lets you focus on your own goals or your own experiment. This is great because I can focus more on nutrition and not be bothered with all of the challenges that didn't really help me lose weight because they seems to be more fitness based and I don't struggle in that area.
So I've weighed in and I did my measurements. THIS will be the round that I get back to goal and stay there
