With being outside a lot yesterday and working in the yard, that seemed to help quite a bit with losing that weight I had gained from the night before.
Weigh In: 169.9
Activity: Over 10k steps; writing this blog while on the treadmill.
Brunch: 1 hard egg on a piece of whole grain toast, 4 pieces of bacon from the local butcher, 1 TBSP light mayo, 1/4 plate filled with hashbrowns and ketchup drizzled on top.
Dinner: 1/2 plate green beans with tajin seasoning, 3 small pieces of lasagna – this was made with whole wheat lasagna noodles and instead of beef and sausage that I use in the original lasagna recipe I make, I used crumbled up black bean burgers. It tasted amazing!

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.
