I’ve been on this weight loss journey since the beginning of the year. I started off counting calories without much success. I only lost about 5 pounds in 2 and half months. Then, I started a diet provided by my sister in law that used to be a professional body builder. I lost 15 pounds in two months. During those two months I learned so much about nutrition. I’m not doing her diet anymore, but I am still following the same principals…lots of protein, low sugar, healthy carbs, etc. Total I have lost 21 pounds, but over the last few weeks I have gained 3 pounds back. This month my eating has not been on track due to vacation, a family death, and sickness. It’s time to get back on track and knock those 3 pounds out plus more!!!
Goals for the week
100 ounces of water a day
Try protein pancakes
Workout at least 5 times
Log all food in My Fitness Pal
I am participating in Skinny Meg’s challenge and I’m LOVIN it. She had a challenge to see who could do the most pushups (not on the knees). I pumped out 45. I did not win, but I was happy with my number considering I haven’t done much strength training lately due to the same reasons why I’ve been eating badly.
She also gave a challenge to burn 1500 calories over the 3 day holiday weekend. I went to the gym on Friday to kick start the challenge. I usually go to the gym at lunch time. The gym is very close to my work. So, to drive to the gym from my house on my holiday off was a pretty big deal. I wasn’t able to complete the challenge due to family activities on Saturday, but I did get one workout in that I normally wouldn’t have. It’s the little things.
