JAN 8 WEIGHT: 148.0
CHANGE IN WEIGHT: -1.8 lbs
Monday: Didn't do a good job of eating 3 meals... I had 'breakfast' for lunch (a piece of toast and a small piece of bacon), and didn't eat a meal again until dinner (homemade chicken tortilla soup). For dessert I had 3 small ginger snap cookies (about 70 calories, total). Did not exercise.
Tuesday: Oatmeal for breakfast, no lunch, soup for dinner, and a 'snack' of some fries and a *tiny* piece of fried catfish. I had a piece of peppermint bark for dessert. Did not exercise.
Wednesday: veggie sausage patty, scrambled egg, and toast. Walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes, burned 200 calories. Dinner was a stuffed bell pepper with salad. Dessert was a cupcake and a cookie. Was (legitly) hungry later on so ate some rosemary wheat crackers.
Thursday: raisin bran crunch for breakfast (bleck... too sweet). Lunch was a mini-cheeseburger, Dinner was half a stuffed pepper, a few bites of steak, and butternut squash. Dessert was a cupcake and 4 ginger snaps. Did not exercise.
Friday: 2 Nutrigrain waffles for breakfast, a PBJ on a Bagel Thin for lunch. baked beans and hot dog for dinner. I think I had ginger snaps for dessert, can't remember. No exercise.
Saturday: 1/2 banana, toast for breakfast. 1/2 biscuit as 'snack'. Turkey + cheese on sandwich thin for lunch. 2 small pieces of pizza and small bowl of soup for dinner. 6 ginger snaps for dessert. Rosemary raisin crackers as snack. No exercise.
- Drinking Water
- Taking Vitamins
- Some days the sweet tooth and snacking got the best of me.
- Exercising... I have little motivation to get on that treadmill.
- It's hard eating healthy when people around you are ordering pizza =X
- No boredom snacking
- Eating (mostly) relatively healthy meals
REFLECTION FOR THE WEEK:
I'm honestly shocked that I lost a pound this week, let alone two! I'm assuming that this is part fluke, and part 'me-watching-portion-sizes-better'. This week I will tackle my challenge #4- motivating myself to exercise, hopefully by finding some fun ways of doing so. I also need to find some toning exercises to do that don't require equipment.
*Challenge Note*: You guys don't have to post what you ate or anything like that if you don't want to. I do it because writing it down helps me to pinpoint days where I overdid it foodwise, underdid it exercisewise, and also makes me think twice about jumping back into that fridge or stuffing a few extra cookies in my mouth, haha. Just write down what you think is going to help you do better in the next week. I think 'Needs work', 'Did well', and 'Reflections' are good places to start. Or you can do as I did and write everything down. Whatever works for you!
Looking forward to reading other 'Get Fit' Club members' posts!
