Happy Monday friends. How was your weekend?
My weekend consisted of long walks, healthy meals, food planning, relaxing, sunset watching, and just being super low key. I stayed sober all weekend! I had a fridge stocked with beers, but I decided that I would rather stay focused on reaching my goals.You know losing weight and getting healthy. 🙂 I am really proud of myself! I am down around four pounds so far this week with another two days before official weekly weigh in.Woo.
As far as my nutrition–I am trying to eat every two to three hours. That is really hard for me because I am not a snacky person. To keep me on track I write down all of my meals and what time I am supposed to eat them. I just use the notebook app on my laptop. I also keep track of my water, fitness and whatever else. I like being able to look back in my notes and know exactly what I have been doing. I also have been consistently logging into My Fitness Pal. Tracking and planning = success. We have been eating our carbs earlier in the day and trying to keep dinner lean and green. Kitchen closes after dinner. NO EXCUSES.
For fitness I have been tracking my steps with my Striiv pedometer. I have some really great friends who use the app also. This helps keep me motivated. I am aiming for 16,000 steps on Tuesday and Thursday + 10,000 steps for the rest of the week. My goal is at least 120 miles for the month of May. I really want to get back to the 30 day shred, but I am so afraid of hurting my back again. I think I might try a modified version of the shred in the next few days. I am dying to do some strength training!!
It’s not all about making a million changes to your lifestyle. It’s just about making a few super important ones. So for me right now tracking my food, walking, planning, and staying positive are helping me to lose weight. I am always falling off the wagon, but once again I know that I can overcome anything that is thrown my way as long as I am alive and breathing. I will continue to lose weight and continue to get healthy anyway that I can!
I am ready to kill it these next few days so I can show a 5 pound loss by Wednesday. Just one more pound to go. I can do this! We all can do this!
I will try to get a recipe to you guys soon. Thinking some kind of yummy thai chicken. 🙂
Have a wonderful day and thanks for reading!
