I’ve been jumping on the scale every morning this week to find the number staring back at me – not so pretty. (I know I shouldn’t weigh every day) Today’s official weigh in = 172.8 ~ Up 2 lbs exactly. Normally, I would be really upset to see that number, but since I’m just getting back in the groove, I’m not going to freak out about it. You’re welcome. Remember when I thought gaining .6 was the end of the world? I’ve been in a bit of a funk lately, so instead of adding more negative thoughts, I’m going to try to think positive. Making excuses doesn’t get me anywhere and I’m well aware of what I need to do. I will see a good loss next week.
Remember when I said I was going to write everything I eat in my journal? Well, I have been but I’m finding myself doing double the work. I’m have to go to MyFitnessPal to look up the calories, so really I’m tracking twice, which is time consuming and unnecessary. I think it’s back to online tracking for me, especially since the app on my phone makes it even more convenient. Come back tomorrow, I’m sure I will have changed my mind again. ;)
When I walked out of work yesterday, I was so happy to see this.
Blue sky! We haven’t seen the sun since last week some time, so this instantly put me in a better mood. For the second day in a row, I went straight to the gym. I did 15 minutes on the elliptical and 30 minutes on the bike. I brought my Kindle with me and the time flew by! Not sure if I even want to attempt reading while running on the treadmill but it worked out well with the other cardio equipment.
I know you’re going to be shocked to hear that I had overnight oats for breakfast. To change things up a little, I added some shredded coconut and a few chocolate chips/peanut butter chips.
Lunch was leftover Turkey Chili.
For an afternoon snack, I had some carrots and hummus.
Dinner after the gym was a Buffalo Chicken Salad. Always one of my favorites.
After dinner, Dane and I had to run to Wal Mart for a few things. On the way home, he asked if I wanted to stop for frozen yogurt and I said no! I love froyo, so that was a pretty big NSV for me. I’ve been surprisingly content with not munching on anything after dinner the last 2 nights.
My plan is to do a walk/run outside
in the crazy heat and humidity after work today. Have a great Friday Eve!
Do you crave something sweet after dinner? Are you an evening snacker?
How did your weigh in go this week?
