Day 29

 

There is only 1 more day left of this program,  and today was the last weigh-in for the 30 days. I have to say, I was disappointed with my results.  Today I weighed exactly what I weighed last week.

 

When I look at that a little more objectively, I see that at least I didn’t slide backwards. And an even better perspective would be to go back to my original goal, which was to lose 2lbs per week, totaling 8lbs total weight loss. I am at 7lbs, and that is pretty close to the mark! Still one day left…

 

Also, I know exactly why I didn’t lose any more weight. I ate that tuna casserole and eggplant/chicken parmesan thing last week. That sort of pasta and cheesy stuff will get you every time. It was worth it, though! If they hadn’t at least tasted good, I would be REALLY disappointed. Haha.

 

I will get to my goal. I’m only 1lb off track, and I can get right back on track. I will get that goal.

 

Here’s what I ate today:

 

Breakfast: Oatmeal, blueberries, banana, cinnamon, coffee with 1% milk

 

Lunch: red potatoes, salmon, steamed: spinach, swiss chard, carrots

What I did today that moved me forward: My diet was KICK BUTT! All the foods I ate had only 1 ingredient in them, which is the best you can go for. Broccoli for instance- the ingredients are obviously: broccoli. I also did not eat any ‘fillers’. There was brown rice in my face, but I just ignored it. Not that it’s bad, but it is a filler and will help you to gain weight or maintain weight.

 

What I did today that held me back: I had two cups of coffee and still didn’t feel fully awake. I guess the not sleeping thing is catching up with me. There’s little I can do about that right now, so I’m just going to be nice to myself and stare at my child in love and gratitude.  Also, I noticed that the water in my new home is turning my hair green. I guess that’s not something I did that held me back, but it sure is annoying. So, then, I did pretty well today!

 

Tomorrow’s the last day!!! Measurements and time to decide how you would like to move forward.
