we made it to Friday y’all. This week went quick and being the first week back to school for the child it was pretty successful! Not much drama, back on routine quick, and now onto a 3 day weekend for the whole family!
I wanted to take a moment to share my WIN for the week in my weight loss journey. I hit the gym only once this week 😦 I had my IDLife meal replacement shake each morning for breakfast, I had salad everyday for lunch, my snacks at work consisted of hard boiled eggs, celery and peanut butter, apples, cheese and nuts to name a few. I drank my 90+ oz of water each day as well. My dinners were pretty average, salmon, shake (one night was running behind on everything), couple other things and the win for the week is I am down 2 lbs!!!!!!!!! you want to know what is even more exciting about that? It is about to be that time of the month and typically I gain 2-3lbs right about now. Woooooooooohoooooooooo so maybe I did gain the bloat and I am really down 4 lbs, say what???? We shall see next Tuesday.
As you see above I only changed one habit this week and that was salads for lunch each day. I kept them fun, some days they had chicken, apples, nuts, or all of the above on it. I used a poppy seed dressing and coated the lettuce with about 1-2 Tablespoons of dressing. I am doing food prep this weekend and will be posting some pics and tips over the weekend so stay tuned for that. I have to get better about dinners this week. I have 2 weeks to lose 10 lbs so I must commit to the gym 6 days next week and no cheats….. ok maybe 1, I’m human! If the 10 lbs don’t happen but I feel better and maybe the clothes are loose then I am ok with that!
Weight is like age- it’s just a number and it does not define me. Enjoy your night!
