Day 22

 

WooHoo!! Starting on the 4th week! The goal has been to lose 2lbs per week, a total of 6lbs. I am at 7! That leaves 1lb left to hit the goal of 8lbs for the month. Right on track!!!

 

I’ve been thinking about my diet, and I think it would be a little bit easier if I had a car and could go to the grocery store. I know, crazy, right? But I’m lucky that people have been providing food for me, and very appreciative. It’s just not always what I have in mind. And to those of you lovers of baked ziti, I apologize if I offended you yesterday. But I will never EVER eat that stuff again. Not. Worth. It. Ewwww.

 

As for my workouts, they are slowly evolving. Every time I execute a workout, something shifts. I add some reps, or I add a new exercise, or maybe a little extra weight. And I can feel my body getting stronger and leaner. It’s a VERY worthwhile feeling and is pushing me onward.

 

Today I added a little extra cardio. My body feels crazy when I jump up and down these days. Everything moves! I feel like I need a full body bra to hold all the jiggly parts in place. I was wondering if a wet suit would work…

 

Here’s what I ate:

 

Breakfast: oatmeal, cinnamon, walnuts, banana, blueberries, coffee w 1% milk. (very pleased I have been able to keep this up. One of the most filling, most beneficial, least weighty foods out there.

 

Lunch: chicken & new potatoes

 

Dinner: salmon, steamed broccoli, salad w red pepper, carrots, cucumber, mesclun, strawberry vinaigrette

 

 

I feel like I’m back on track
