Not gonna lie that I thought I gained this week – all because I didn’r really track my food or work out for two days? I woke up at 8:30 (I normally go to the 8:00 meeting) and while I easily could have gone to the 9 or 10 o’clock meeting, I opted to sleep in and snuggle with Tony. We watched some t.v. and I didn’t actually get out of bed this morning until 11:15!
But I had to WI on my scale, and much to my surprise, according to my scale, I lost 1.4! I was 161.8 last week:
And when I looked back on the week, the two days I didn’t track – the only difference besides not working out was that I had a small piece of cake – which I can easily have with my flex points, but somehow my brain told myself I was cheating. I have to stop that.
Yesterday I had half a sesame bagel egg sammie with brie and ham for 11 points – the full 3 point ounce of brie was worth it!
Lunch was a mini taco fiesta – one flour tortilla with ground beef, brown rice, red pepper and salsa with 3/4 ounce of tortilla chips dipped into salsa on the side – this plate comes in at 9 points.
Since yesterday was Lent, that meant no meat for Tony. I ended up making him a fish stick sandwich. When I was going through our fridge I realized I had a lot of veggies to use up. I had some thin steak in the freezer so I just thinly sliced that frozen, stir fried that alone for a couple minutes – took it out and added broccoli, broccoli slaw, zucchini and red and yellow peppers. I ended up using a tablespoon of peanut sauce (1 point), Frank’s hot sauce sweet and sour sauce (1) and garlic chili sauce (1). My steak was 3 points, the veggies were free – so this giant bowl of food was only 6 points!
I posted on facebook yesterday that when I left for my run weather.com said it was 35 degrees, but with the windchill felt like 23. I still ended up running for 40 minutes, but I think my capri running pants was a bad idea!
So by the time I actually got out of bed, my twin sister ran 10 miles this morning!! Go Jenn! I was thinking of you while I was lying under my down comforter. 😀
I plan on using a lot of stuff in my pantry/fridge/freezer for this weeks meal plan – should be interesting! Anything new on your menu this week? Please share!
I WILL GO TO THE GYM TODAY. I WILL GO TO THE GYM TODAY. I WILL GO TO THE GYM TODAY. I WILL GO TO THE GYM TODAY!
