Weekly Weigh in!

Well, the bad news is, my weight this morning was up .6lbs from yesterday, putting me at 282.4.

The good news is, I lost 2.4lbs this week, and managed to stay completely on plan with food, I only missed one day of exercise, and I managed to drink 2.5L-3L of water every day. So that mysterious bump is probably just my body being my body, and prepping for TOM to show up. Lord knows the cravings and cramps that go with TOM have already made themselves known.

Yesterday I was craving frosted flakes, and today I was craving s’mores granola bars (and a Big Mac from McD’s)… At least 2 out of 3 were things I could easily fit into my plan for the day. So now I’ve got chicken breast from the rotisserie chicken, some hummus, the s’mores granola bars, a couple boxes of instant oatmeal, tilapia, apples, bananas, broccoli, frozen veggies, and small red potatoes tp get me through the week. Lots of healthy!

Though I must confess to buying a dozen mini choco-fudge cupcakes from the bakery… they were on sale and I know my chocolate craving will go nuts this week. They are 100cals apiece, but they are really small… the good thing is, they pack a rich chocolate taste that will easily satiate that craving without forcing me way over my calorie limits for the day. I will be sure to budget room for a choco-fix or two the next few days.

I need to buy yogurt. My fridge is weirdly empty without it.

Dinner was dangerous…

I could definitely sit and eat a whole rotisserie chicken, given enough time. even being full i was still picking at pieces of it because it was SO GOOD. i had some broccoli with it, as well as some hummus with some special K crackers. Those things are dangerous too! you can eat 24 of them in a serving, for 120 calories. 5 calories apiece! that can’t be too bad right…. unless you sit and eat 3 servings because they are whole grain with that hint of sweetness.

Grocery shopping this weekend so I can stock up on fruits and veggies. Hummus is my new addiction though. IT’S SO GOOD! Especially the roasted red pepper hummus with that hint of spiciness. Yummy. How did I not know about this stuff before?!

Anyway, starting tomorrow, I will only be updating my ticker on a weekly basis so I’m not stressing the occasional water gain that happens in the day to day, though I will still weigh in daily. Seeing a steady drop every week will keep me on track much better than an up and down daily change.

Also, TOM’s due the middle of next week. I’m dreading it! It will be the first time I have to sift through the cravings and cramps and tiredness since I started this attempt at weight loss. Hopefully I can make it through without too much of a gain.

So now that I’ve let dinner digest a bit and I don’t feel so full, I’m gonna go do my 30 mins of step aerobics. I’m hoping that in the near future I won’t be so tired and out of breath at the end!

Good Night!
