It has been one full week of sharing my weight loss journey with you all so far! I did have a couple glasses of chardonnay wine last night, so I was happy to see the number go down again this morning.
Weigh In: 168.4.
This time last week: 170.4
I got up a bit late this morning but took a small break to get my workout in.
Activity: 3 sets of push ups, squats, and crunches; over 10k steps; writing this blog while on the treadmill.
Breakfast: Smoothie with 1 fuji apple, 1 banana, almond milk, 1 scoop protein powder, ice.
Snack: 1 snack bag of pistachios salted
Lunch: 1/2 plate salad with chickpea pasta in italian dressing, tomatoes, peppers, and homemade kimchi, 1/2 plate of lasagna leftover from last night (my healthier version).
Dinner: 1/4 plate of brown rice, 1/4 plate of beef and broccoli stirfry leftover from last week, 1/2 plate green beans with tajin seasoning
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. 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.
