(Sorry for the lack of postage yesterday. My bad yo.)
So, you might recall that last week I gained weight for the first time in my weight loss journey. I kind of felt it coming though because I was getting in this complacent funk with food tracking and frankly the blog. I had lost the passion of what drove me to lose the weight and I was resting on my accomplishments. I had worked so hard up to that point and then tried to coast which failed miserably. So this week, we worked out almost every day, watched what we ate, and just did a better job of listening to our bodies (oh yeah, and drinking a ton of water.) Anyways, between all that and rekindling me passion for this blog and how much I love it, I did alright this week. I lost 5.6 freaking pounds!!!!!!!! HOLY CRAP! I couldn’t believe at all. I flipped out. So awesome! This is the second most weight I’ve lost in a week other than the first week when I lost 10.8 pounds so that’s pretty cool stuff. So now I’m down to 293 pounds, I’ve lost a total of 64 pounds, and I’m 36 pounds away from my 100 pound goal. I have 80 days to go. Do you think I’ll make it? Me neither.
Breakfast: I just had a bowl of Kashi Berry Crunch that was just straight up awesome. Can’t get any better than that.
Lunch: So we went out with some of the young professionals from church for lunch and we decided on Cracker Barrel. I’m still not a fan of the ol’ CB because they still don’t have their nutritional information available to the general public which is just wrong, but I figured if I did something a little lighter than chicken tenders or something like that I would be okay. I went with the lemon pepper rainbow trout with pinto beans, mashed potatoes and carrots. It was really good, the fish was really cooked well and the veggies were amazing as always. I also had two cornbread muffins with no butter. A pretty legit meal.
After lunch, we went over to our friends house so Megan and some other people from her department could study while the guys played FIFA and watch the Super Bowl. There was frozen pizza so I had two slices of cheese which was good and then we all snacked on homemade spicy chex mix through out the day. (Pictured: Felix the Wonder Cat in a Walmart bag)
Overall I think I did alright considering it was Super Bowl Sunday. I don’t have the exact measurements of everything because I’m not sure how much chex mix I ate. The rest of the week I’m going to be really careful about that though to keep on the weight loss wagon. See ya tomorrow.
