Friday, May 21, 2021
28 days since my last blog post and I’m headed in the right direction with my health.
Current stats - down 2 inches & 4.2 pounds
B 36 (down from 36.5) -.5
W 32 (down from 32.5) -.5
H 38.5 (down from 39.5) -1
Th 19.5 (20.5) -.1
C 14.5 (14.5) 0
Weight (in jeans) 152.6 (down from 156.8) -4.2
I got a new Apple Watch for Mother’s Day/ birthday/anniv and I’ve been closing those rings! I’ve been doing the C25K and am finishing week 4. I’ve also been working out 2-3 times a week on the days I don’t run. If it’s too cold, I was running on the treadmill. I even did my daughters challenge of 3/12/30 (speed/incline/minutes) for a killer leg workout and a 300 calorie burn in 30 minutes.
Food - I’ve been eating more salads with veggies, lean protein (eggs, egg whites, turkey, steak) berries, and generally just eating less and logging to make sure I’m creating a calorie deficit. It seems like I need to really create a large gap to see the scale move down. (Wondering if my thyroid meds need to be adjusted?) If I eat the right things, I’m not hungry and can still create a deficit. I’ve also added in some protein shakes (Truvani chocolate blended with ice, & banana is what I like)
I’ve been looking up the AIP diet and think I’m going to try to eat more foods on that to help boost my low thyroid. I’m excited to incorporate more Salmon because I think I will benefit from that. Also going to buy some Brazil nuts to eat 1-2/day to get my selenium up.
Bye for now!
