I was 158 last week and this week I am 156.2 I’m pretty happy with that number considering it is almost 2pounds in a week. It is one pound less than when I left for Italy. Finally some true progress.
My 5 week goal I set in November was to be 154.5 by December 10th. I am obviously not going to make that and that’s okay. I would be thrilled to make it by the time I left to the States but I’m not crossing my fingers. That’s in 6 days. BUT ya never know. I did 2 pounds this week…..
I am committing myself to this week. I will eat clean, work hard, and give it my all (with the exception of today….it’s the Christmas partayyyyyyy and I’m going to enjoy myself and have desert).
Have a lovely weekend, friends!
Flush the System...
According to a recent study published in Obesity, drinking two eight-ounce glasses of water 30 minutes before meals caused participants to drop 44 percent more weight in 12 weeks time than dieting alone. Use this trick, along with a good diet, to feel fuller faster and consume less calories. Most fighters’ instincts, when cutting weight, is to avoid water, but water actually helps flush the system and encourages weight loss.
Last Night I had my first sorority meeting of this year. (Most of my sisters had last seen me previous to my weight loss).
Typically at meetings, the girls bring in sweets and fat bomb foods. I can tell you one thing I learned from last night; being asked if I had lost weight felt momentously better than even one bite of those foods ever would. FACT
Gain for the 2nd week in a row, not much explanation. It’s official. I’ve plateaued.
I did a little research on how to get past this and I think there are a couple things I could definitely be doing better.
- Get closer to my calorie goal, instead of trying to stay in the “safe” zone by hovering a couple hundred calories under and therefore not getting enough nutrients. I’m upping my goal to 1500 (net!) for the week.
- More interval training.
I’m not stressing too much. I’m actually glad that this is a result of a little bit of slacking instead of something totally out of the blue. It gives me more to work with.
