Today was our first official weigh in for our weight loss videos and unfortunately I don’t have much to be proud of. It’s crazy that a week ago I had lost 3.5 pounds and then this week I ate even less than last week and here we are only a 2 pound total weight loss. How did I gain weight? I’m not too worried about it though. I did blog about some of this already yesterday so I won’t get to detailed, but I will say this is not fun. I feel like I am dragging butt because of not having caffeine and I feel like I am starving myself. Yesterday I literally had eaten next to nothing since today was weigh in and look where it got me. I need to figure out how to eat meals that are going to make me feel better and give me energy.
I am going to start making a checklist for each day and force myself to eat at least 2 fruit and 1 vegetable serving every day. Sounds simple, but it’s not for me. I will also allow myself to have one bad “carb” type food each day as long as I exercise- such as bread or noodles. Ken totally freaks out if I make spaghetti or anything with noodles. He thinks we should be sticking to chicken and rice and I swear right now I wouldn’t care if I didn’t eat chicken the rest of the month. I feel like I am depriving my body of all the things I love at all once and it feels miserable. I feel like I should be concentrating more on portion control and adding healthier foods each day so eventually I crave an apple, instead of chips. To top it off our kids are not thrilled with our food choices and I feel like I am starving them as well and they are all skinny minis already. I am going to work on a menu for next week so we have a plan of what we will have for dinner each day like I used to. Sounds like a plan, let’s see how this goes!!
