It’s week five, but I have to confess that I didn’t post last week (week 4). My parents were visiting, and we ate out daily, and then my “Aunt Flo” came to visit…so there was no way I was getting on a scale! I also haven’t been to the gym in 2 weeks. Surprisingly, I did lose a little weight. I think it’s because I did a lot of walking, and even though we ate out, it wasn’t excessive, and I didn’t eat desserts.
177 lbs. (a total weight loss of 18 lbs.)
Hours and hours of walking! Some leisurely, some brisk
I haven’t been doing a good job of logging into MyFitnessPal to keep track of calories. There are two reasons why. It’s been difficult for me to determine the calories of what I’ve been cooking for dinner and what I’ve been eating at restaurants.
I did eat a lot of calorie-laden foods like restaurant burgers and fries. I definitely didn’t eat enough veggies. I think I’m also using too much creamer in my coffee.
Next Week’s Goals:
I would love to get down to 175lbs.
I haven’t been losing weight quickly, so it’s iffy whether or not that will happen, but that’s my goal. Once I hit 175, I’m only 10 pounds away from my initial goal of 165lbs! That will be fabulous, because I’ll have a few more outfits in my wardrobe that I’ll be able to fit into.
I also plan to drink more water, cut back on creamer, and eat more veggies. All three of those goals are just good lifestyle choices, even if I wasn’t losing weight.
