It's good news this week!
I'm down - contrary to what the demon scale was telling me yesterday, today I'm down. Not a lot, mind, but at least I didn't gain.
I was hoping to be at least a few pounds down, I've been super active over the last week. Did a bit of the shred, but have also joined a workout group, I did the March of Dimes March for Babies, and did a lot of manual labor (yard work). I'm super sore, and my body FEELS different. As in, I don't have to work as hard to hold in my muffin top.
You hear that? The muffin top is shrinking. Whoopee!!
I also made a good food discovery this week - Ezekiel 4:9 Bread. I'm not gonna lie, it's not that tasty on its own. But toasted, with a little peanut butter, it's actually good! And super filling. Lots of protein and very necessary fiber. I've been eating a slice with PB and some banana for breakfast on the days I work out with Stroller Strides - and I've had enough energy that I don't keel over.
So, to the numbers:
Starting Weight: 182
Last Week's Weight: 179.8
This Week's Weight: 178.4
At this point, I'm pretty sure I'm not going to hit my goal of fifteen pounds in 8 weeks. I'm guessing, if I'm lucky, 5 to 7. But I am okay with that - it's something.
