This might be a fast post…I’m in the middle of watching something very important! The Bachelor Wedding! Hi. My name is Jenn, and I am a diehard Bachelor fan! And for those of you that watched…how many times do you think she said “grown sexy”? Would have made a great drinking game.
Goal: Lose 20 pounds. Live a healthy lifestyle every day with my family.
Progress to date: 3 weeks in, I am down 8 pounds. I only lost 1 pound last week, but that is totally normal. And honestly, I didn’t eat as clean as I should have some of the days, so I’ll take what I can!
Hightlight of last week: Getting my workouts in, and increasing the distance I ran on the treadmill.
Challenge of last week: Man, it’s hard to eat good during snowstorms. Snowstorms practically scream, bake! Eat! Eat and cuddle! Eat some more! I did pretty decent though, and even passed up baking yummy cookies for a healthier (and delicious!) blueberry greek yogurt banana bread. The weekend was a little tougher. I made healthy choices when I could, but also had fast food while out all day house hunting. Ok, and maybe a boston cream donut. What? Don’t judge.
Workouts: I spent the week alternating T25 and running on my treadmill again. I was able to increase the distance I ran this week, which made me happy. T25 is still ass-kicking and awesome.
Lessons I learned this week: Boston cream donuts taste extra delicious after not having them for awhile. So do McDonalds fries. WHAT? I said it was a cheat day! Also, I showed some restraint and got medium fries instead of large. And believe me…I wanted the large. I’m also back to my good old gum trick. I always carry a strong, mint gum so I can pop it in to chew when I want to pick on the kids snacks, graze while making dinner, eat more fries, etc.
Our dinner meal plans this week:
Monday: Filet mignon, shaved brussel sprouts and sweet potatoes.
Thursday: Grilled balsamic chicken and asparagus
What was your biggest challenge last week? I hope everyone has a great week! And, for the love of God…I hope this week doesn’t go anywhere NEAR as slow as last week did!
