Here is a quick update on this week.
Last Weeks Weight: 219
This Weeks Weight: 218
So, here is what happened. I got down to 215. I really did! Then I had one bad day where I went out to eat. We had mexican and…it destroyed my weight loss. I didn’t know that just one day could do something that drastic to my weight loss.
On top of that, the one day that I splurged I didn’t make sure I drank enough water, so I am sure that messed things up a bit too.
Today marks 15 days since I had a sweet. Actually, to be completely honest, I had one sweet on my bad day. It was a cereal bar with strawberry filling. But! I gave blood that day and I was afraid to go without the sugar…I didn’t know how it would effect me. But other than that, no sweets or overly processed foods have passed my lips!
I am doing really really good. I have been doing my fitness challenge every day. I have, on most days, made sure I had enough water. I have been keeping my calorie count around 1000 calories a day.
It was just one day that screwed me up and it won’t happen again. I have also had a problem with eating after work on days I close. Sadly, there isn’t much I can do about that.
The diet that I was talking about last week didn’t work out to well. It was just too much food to consume all day. My brother on the other hand…ugh. The diet worked perfect for him.
This week I hope to lose three pounds, staying on my diet.
Let me clear something up right quick. I say diet, but for me it’s not a diet. It’s more of a lifestyle change, but I am calling it a diet because it is different than what I am used to. until I get used to it and it just becomes a norm, it will be called a diet.
With that said. This week I hope to stay true to my diet, drink plenty of water, continue doing my fitness challenge, and add a few days of exercise. I think I am doing better than I have ever done before and I want to keep going with this.
I learned this past week that what I put in my body really is up to me. I don’t HAVE to have candy or sweets. I don’t HAVE to feed my cravings. I can get other things, healthier things to lessen my cravings and continue to eat and live right. I don’t know why I didn’t catch on to this before!
If any of you out there use my fitness pal, feel free to add me! You can find me at Pythongurl. I would love to see more people on my friends list. I even have it where you can see what I am eating everyday…for the days that I remember to log everything.
