Weight Loss Journey – 10.28.2022

Happy Friday everyone!  I took the official virtual 5k photos and wanted to share:

My workouts lately have been the C25K and walking on an incline.  I needed to do something different and am very glad I chose this route.  My goal is to build up enough endurance to run a full 5k and the C25K app is going to help me do that.

I’ve slacked on getting certain types of food in as well, so I’m going to attempt writing a daily weight loss journey update again for you all!

Since I started the Omada program, I have now lost a total of 28.44 inches!  On September 5th, I had lost a total of 23.21 inches.

Weigh In:  158.7
This time last week:  158.5

Today’s workout was C25K, Week 4, Day 3.  This included a 5 minute warmup walk, then jogging for 3 minutes, walking for 90 seconds, jogging for 5 minutes, walking 2 1/2 minutes, jogging 3 minutes, walking 90 seconds, then jogging 5 minutes.  A 5 minute cooldown walk was also done.

Breakfast:  2 bananas, cottage cheese, frozen blueberries and honey drizzled on top.

Lunch:  Pita bread pizza that I put together with homemade pasta sauce, mushrooms and banana peppers with parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.  Salad with tomatoes, onions, shredded cheese and Cesar dressing.


Dinner:  Leftover lasagna with Cesar dressing drizzled on top.

I’ve also drank over 64 ounces of water so far.  With it being Friday, I am going to enjoy some adult beverages shortly!


A few things I’m still 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
  • Amount of fiber in a serving – I’m doing my best to aim for 20g of fiber each day, but that sure can be difficult!
  • If I have a sweet tooth craving, I turn on the keurig and add creamer to my cup of coffee

**I am not a nutritionist or personal trainer by any means and my results can very much vary from anyone else’s.  Please keep that in mind and feel free to share this blog with friends!
