Weight Loss Journey – 10.29.2022

Weekends can sometimes be hard to eat healthier… especially if you’ve have some adult beverages the night before.  Today was definitely one of those days where I ate a bit more than I typically do and I did my best to make healthy choices.

Weigh In:  160
This time last week:  158.9

Today I did get up and moved around quite a bit and have managed to get over 11,000 steps in.

Breakfast:  1 banana – then about an hour later I made a grilled cheese using the Dave’s Killer Bread White Bread Done Right with 2 slices of pepperjack cheese, 2 slices of bacon, 2 deli sliced buffalo chicken with mayo/horseradish to dip it in.

Lunch:  Leftover lasagna with cesar dressing drizzled on top.

Dinner:  Motor City Pizza Co. meat pizza

I’ve also had some pumpkin cheesecake bars that I had made last night, siete sea salt chips with salsa, a bag of ranch rice crisps (small bag).  I’m anticipating weighing more tomorrow, but tomorrow is also a new day and I know I can get back on track.


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!
