2. Weigh in Wednesday...
Well the number on the scale today was 201
WHICH is actually a 6.6 pound loss this week...
Last Monday I was at 202, then Wednesday at 207.6 ((seriously))
SO I was very relieved to see that this week I lost one pound from my original weight and then all of the poundage I packed on from my poor eating at the beginning of last week!
It was nice this week to spend time on Sunday with Mandy Pants & Rach going for a walk!
It is ALWAYS a good thing when you can squeeze exercise and girl time in at once!
Of course we followed our 5 mile walk with a pizza party but hey, I still lost weight
Weight loss is really all about balance
I do NOT believe in cheat days
BUT I do believe you should eat the things you want and not deprive yourself
It's all about moderation people
That being said MOST weekdays my diet consists of a protein shake in the morning mixed with coffee and vanilla almond milk, a granola bar for lunch, then I will eat dinner with my family.
So I'm still only consuming 1000-1300 calories which is a normal number for weight loss
Then at night I am doing my body pump which burns up to 900 calories an hour...
I don't know exactly how much I burn...
But hopefully Santa will be bringing me the Polar FT4 of my dreams so I can know exactly how much work I'm putting in & if I need to work harder!
This week was my first successful week since I have been home
In total I have gained 12 pounds since moving back early September
This week alone I lost 6.6 of those pounds!
Do the math...6.6x3,500=23,100...
That means I burned 23,100 more calories then I consumed!!
And I didn't feel hungry or deprived one bit!
So I am pleased!!
