So I had to take off working out 3 days in a row, and I ate an entire box 1 point snack bars in 2 days. Yesterday I tracked everything at night, may or may not forgetting a thing or two. I ate McDonald's snack wraps(2 with no cheese) late at night when I got out of work.
And yet I lost big...4.8 pounds in one week!
The good is that I did work out 4 days this week, I stayed in my points, and I tried some new recipes. One last night was awesome tuna casserole, a healthy one. Today I am trying a healthy version of Beef Strognoff. I am having fun trying all these new recipes.
Second I left the girls with Ryan and worked out, I can't take them to the gym (too sick for childcare), but I needed out. So I went on the treadmill again, 20 min walk and 19 min 30 second run. I did the 5k loop under 40 minutes today. YAYAYA!! I am doing the 5min walk 5 min run rotation for 3 more times, then I will do a 4 min walk and 6 minute run.
All this is so exciting but, I am still not seeing it. And Ryan is still not really noticing it either. In fact only 2 people have even mentioned my weight loss and both knew I was working at it. i read a blog (learning to be less) about doing it for myself but at the same time I do want some notice. I have dropped 38 pounds and still have a long road in front of me I just want someone to notice that I have started.
Oh I do want to say I got some free transition clothes, my friend Renee gave me some of her sisters clothes. All are size 11/12, not wearable right now but with some work they will be by Christmas. My mom is also bringing some 14's and 12's. I should be able to fit in all the 14's at Thanksgiving, the twelves Christmas. We are 10 weeks away from Christmas , I want to lose 23.6 pounds in that 10 weeks, which would bring me to 190. The weight I was when I met Ryan, I think I was actually 193, but I like even numbers on the scale. Thanksgiving I want to see onderland.
