With all the salt intake I had yesterday I figured I would gain weight and a lot more than I did. When it only went up .2 lbs, I was pretty happy – especially since I’m still weighing less than last Thursday!
Weigh In: 170.1
Woke up a little after 6:15 a.m. to get that workout in before getting ready for work.
Activity: 3 sets of tricep kick backs, deadlifts with 10 lbs, seated twists; over 10k steps; writing this blog while on the treadmill.
Breakfast: 1 low carb wrap with a scrambled egg that had 2 pieces Wright maple bacon crumbled and diced onions, along with 1 TBSP light mayo.
Snack: 1.5 oz. salted cashews
Lunch: 1/2 plate filled with lettuce and homemade kimchi on top, 1/4 plate of chickpea pasta with italian dressing, tomatoes, sweet peppers and banana peppers, and 1/4 plate of homemade hamburger helper
Dinner: 1 lavash flatbread with homemade alfredo mushroom sauce, 1 smoked chicken breast diced, 5 thin slices swiss cheese, lettuce
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.
