This morning I did weigh in .2 lbs more – however, my muscles are super sore and typically I gain a lot more weight than what I did when I usually workout. Also, I still weigh less than what I did last Tuesday!
Weigh In: 170.6
Woke up a little at 6:15 to get that workout in before getting ready for work.
Activity: 3 sets of lateral raises, hamstring crunches and side bends; over 10k steps; writing this blog while on the treadmill.
Breakfast: Smoothie made with 6 strawberries, yogurt, almond milk and 1 banana – super bland and will need to add something else next time.
Snack: 1/2 cup low-fat cottage cheese
Lunch: 1 lavash flatbread pizza with homemade pasta sauce, mushrooms, 1 chopped up blackbean burger, 2 slices maple bacon, shredded cheddar and mozzarella cheese
Dinner: 1 cup homemade hamburger helper, 1 cup chickpea pasta with italian dressing and tomatoes/sweet peppers/banana peppers, 1/2 plate green beans
Water is very important – especially if you are moving around a lot! By the time I got done with the workout this morning, I had already drank 32 oz. of ice water again. My goal typically is to have three 32 oz mugs of ice water by the time I go to bed. If I walk over 12k steps, I’m definitely aiming to drink more water than that.
A few things I’m keeping an eye out on:
- Amount of sugar in a serving – if it’s more than 4g, I am being cautious
- Amount of protein in a serving – I’m aiming for at least 20g of protein per serving each meal
- If I have a sweet tooth craving, I turn on the keurig and add creamer to my cup of coffee
Last week, each day I was losing weight – it wasn’t a lot, but I could see there was progress! This is why I want to share with everyone what I am doing and I welcome any constructive comments as well.
