Weight Loss Journey – 01.25.2023

“Discovering my own creative spark is self-love in action.  Creativity lights me up.”  I love painting while drinking wine and I also love making bottle cap fishing lures – both I need to start setting more time aside to do.

 Workout today:  20 minute strength training workout on Apple Fitness+.  I learned a lot about the Lunar New Year animals and the meaning behind each.  The songs tied to this workout were also amazing!  

I’ll be recording the miles walked today all throughout the day, which will be over 5 miles, for the 100 mile challenge.  Want to join me?  Click here!

Weigh In:  160.4
This time last week:  159.6

Breakfast:  Coffee with creamer.  Plantopia burrito with 1 kiwi and Cairo BBQ Sauce.  I am not big into the plant-based foods – however, this was free at Meijer and I figured I’d give it a try.  It was actually really good!  


 

Lunch:  Cucumbers, red onions and feta cheese with Italian Dressing; rest of fish we had late last week with ketchup.




Dinner:  Smothered pork chops with buffalo cauliflower and basmati rice.



 
Snacks:  Small bag of cheetos and a small bowl of the leftover homemade hamburger helper with ranch/buffalo sauce on top.

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!

Pomifera – Clean face products to use.  The shampoo and conditioner are also amazing!  There are deals on shipping every so often and is such a great time to stock up on products when that happens.
