Friday and feelin’ good!
For week 19, I lost 2 pounds for a total of 27 pounds lost.
I am 13 pounds away from my “40 pounds lost by September 1st” goal.
Wow, I can’t believe it has been 19 weeks. Seems like such a short time. I’ve almost hit that 30 lb. mark and I expect to be there in two more weeks.
My staples for this week have been:
– Bananas! B-A-N-A-N-A-S! (Gwen Stefani reference)
My saving grace this week:
– Portion control. Again. This week I ate a lot of what everybody else ate, but relied on keeping my portions under control! Seems like it worked.
Featured meal this week:
I have been loving frozen bananas with chocolate and peanut butter. Not the healthiest, I know, but it’s my substitute for ice cream right now. I peel a banana, spread 1 T of peanut butter on top, and melt 1 oz. of milk chocolate chips and spread them over top. I pop it in the freezer and wait til the banana becomes chill and the chocolate is nice and hard. Yum!
Eating out this week:
We celebrated Jeremy’s new job by having a family dinner at an Italian restaurant on Sunday. I didn’t hold back… I had all the bread and dipping oil, salad dressing, and creamy pasta that I wanted. The did two things well. 1. I split an entree with my mom and 2. I listened to my body and stopped eating when I was full. I took home leftovers, but let someone else eat them.
Working out this week:
Not my best week in this department.
– Tuesday: Walked 5 miles at Wilson’s Creek
No Zumba or PiYO this week because the instructor was out of town. I attempted to go to the assistant instructor’s class on Thursday, but I figured out that they had bumped it to Wednesday… an empty parking lot was my clue. But hey, at least I got in my car and went!
Visible changes this week:
Less belly fat.
Goals for next week:
Track every little snack, no matter how few points it is.
