Today was weigh in day! I lost 3.6 lbs.
For a grand total of 5 lbs. exactly since my first weigh in on my planner, May 28th. I feel like eh, it's only 5 lbs. but I have not seen 195.8 in a WHILE so I am very happy with that. I am also very happy that I met my first goal of 195 and I get to go get a pedicure! Woo hoo! I think I even have a coupon for a hot stone upgrade FREE. Need to find that stat!
Anyways I was in a rush this morning because I helped my cousin with her son today while she was at the doctor. I had cottage cheese and coffee. I also had to UP my metformin today from 2 pills to three.
I had about 20 peanuts on the car ride home to her house.
I got Moe's for lunch. Chicken burrito bowl. Added guac and pintos. Brought it home and added my own cheese. It wasn't too great today.
I went to Target for a few items and had to get hubby some jeans and such for work, so as I was browsing I found this delicious smelling coconut cream conditioner for only 4.99! Exciting!
It has been SO HOT here and HUMID.
I had a cheese stick for a snack and two of my cheesecake minis with FF whip cream.
I also had 99% ff turkey with mustard, just a little bit for a snack.
Dinner was a great steak salad with blue cheese. I also added a boiled egg and cheese after the pic. It has olives and turkey bacon on it as well.
How I am feeling:
I am missing peanut butter and jelly sandwiches even though I rarely eat them. I miss tortilla chips and tortillas. I miss easy fast foods. However I do NOT miss feeling bloated and heavy and knowing I ate too much. I do not miss those extra five pounds.
I love that on this diet I feel satisfied after I eat. Ever notice how you eat 2 or 3 slices of pizza and you are like MAN I could eat this whole thing!?? Or same thing with a combo at wendys...was that seriously my LAST fry???
With these meals you do not want to keep eating. I am most always very much satisfied and do not crave more. It is rare even for me to get second helpings. So that is something I love.
Sugar has been out of my bloodstream for a WEEK people!!! This is incredible. I was looking at spaghetti sauce today trying to find one with no added sugar. Do you know how hard that is? Guess I will have to make my own! Let me know if you know of one.
And Ashley thank you for the London Broil tip!!!! I will have to try that. Thank you all SO much for your sweet encouraging comments this week it has really kept me going!!! I hope you all are doing well!!!
Oh and let me also say that is 3.6 lbs that I did not even have to exercise for. I walked one day and played in the pool another. Pretty cool. Need to start back walking/running though! What are you doing for workouts right now? Its just been SO hot here! ugh lol.
