Happy Sunday Friends! I am starting week three this morning and let me tell you: I feel great! My knee is a little out of whack this morning and I blame Jillian Michaels. I have not taken a day of rest over the last two weeks though, and today, hubby and I decided we would.
Oh, that’s right: Hubby joined MFP too and is not only PTing with me over on the track, but is watching his caloric intake as well! That makes it easier when he’s nibbling all afternoon- now he’s got to be held accountable for it.
Wednesday I was super stoked when I weighed in and had lost a total of 6.2! This morning things were a little different and I must admit: I’m back up to only a grand total of 4.4. Yep, that means only a 0.1lb loss since last week. That still rounds out to 2.2 lbs a week and I see a difference, even if not on the scales today!
We’ve stocked the fridge with healthy foods and today: I will even be trying hummus for the very first time in my entire life. We made a delicious French toast recipe with a berry sauce instead of syrup! Yes: we made a berry sauce from fresh berries! It was tart, and sweet, and DELICIOUS! We just put raspberries, blueberries and strawberries in a saucepan and heated them on med-low heat until it was a saucy mixture, then we scooped it over our french toast. It would also be delicious I think in plain yogurt or over ice cream!
We had A LOT of sodium this past week and hopefully this upcoming week I will be able to change that! I’ve loved the convenience of our Crock-Pot, but do not like the sodium intake from all the recipes. Definitely making them once in a while instead of all the timers!
So, recap: started 30 Day Shred and walking the track at least 4 days a week (M,W,F and once on the weekend). Purchased a heart rate monitor to keep track of what I’m doing better and to be more honest about what I’m burning. MFP is pretty accurate. We learned DiGiorno Pizza just has to not be bought ever again.
Are you on a fitness or weight loss journey? How are you doing?
Here’s to another “Flab-u-less” week, friends! I’m trying some low sodium dinners and will let you know how they turn out!
