Welcome to Monday, the day on which I am suppose to update you all with my weight loss hopefully stats. However, since I did my actual first weigh-in on last Tuesday night, I shall do that again this week and then just update this post with the good hopefully news.
I am beginning to realize that I am so sort of weight loss weirdo. Hold on, hold on I am not getting all down on myself, I am simply pointing out a fact. You see, I have no problem with the whole exercising aspect of weight loss. In fact, I love exercise . . . so much so I am amazed that I am dealing with all this junk in my trunk in the first place.
The problem is with my eating. I don't eat the greatest, I am the first to admit it, but even when I go eat fairly well I still eat too much. So here is the point where I am honest with you and say that I continued to struggle with it all last week.
For certain there were good points but it continued to be harder than it really should be. I am well aware of how to eat properly and I am not one to buy into fade diets. Focusing on eating natural ie. not processed, food that is preferably in season and local is the way to start. Moving on to focusing on portion size and realizing that there is no need to fill that huge plate. Finally understanding moderation with everything.
I have a habit of turning to soup when I am trying to regulate or drop some weight. It is cheap, easy and often contains enough veggies to help me get in my daily recommended amount. Of course the trade off is the fact that it is so often ridiculously high in sodium. Sigh.
So the good from the past week:
I made it to kickboxing 4 times last week. Three of those 4 times were for double classes so that meant I was working out for at least 1:30. One of those night was the start of our fitness challenge during which I completed 155 weighted squats and worried that I would never be able to get up off the toilet for days afterwards.
I gave up buying coffee and began making it here at work or at home. This means that I use less sweetener and less milk. I have also switched to Stevia as a method for sweetening my coffee.
I ate out only once in the past week and that was for a fundraiser for Little Miss's school so I wouldn't have done it otherwise.
The not so good from the past week:
I have been really hit and miss with the tracking of my calories and "forgetting" to track some little things that I know have calories but wished didn't.
Goals for this week:
Better focus on tracking my calorie intake and not "forgetting" to track things.
Continue to get as much exercise as possible.
