No, the answer is no. I haven’t lost in the longest time & I haven’t been upset about that for the longest time. I’ve pretty much settled into the weight I was 2 summers ago & I’m holding. But I don’t want to hold. No more! I want to break into the 160s again, I want to go beyond that, I want to lose 17 by Christmas & buy a new pair of much smaller jeans for my birthday.
So here we go again. Back to it. Today will be a long work day, but I’m mixing in a couple of walks, situps, pushups, and maybe some squats (depending on the knee). Tomorrow if the swelling is down, I’m doing the 5k. & snacks are fruit, nuts, & seeds for the next week. I want to see movement on that scale. It’s time to break into the 160s, enough coasting. Maybe I should try calorie counting again?
Breakfast: light orange juice (40) & protein shake mix (80) with 1/2 banana (50) TOTAL = 170
Lunch: pumpkin soup (with 1/8 cup pumpkin seeds on top) & salad with light dressing (soup=90, seeds=93, salad=100) TOTAL = 283
Dinner: pumpkin soup with 1/8 cup pumpkin seeds (183); 1/2 cup squash (33), green beans (34), chicken sausage (120), whole wheat bun (110) TOTAL= 480
Total for day=933 (okay, no good)
