I officially finished my first official week of trying to lose weight. Overall, I’m crazy proud of myself (no need for a humble brag here). I lost 2.4 pounds between Monday and Friday, which feels really good. The 2019 weight loss extravaganza has begun!
What Went Well?
-Planned every workout and wrote it in my journal
-Set small, attainable “diet goals” for the week (no alcohol, set dinner plan with Jason)
–Jason stuck to his plan as well which helped me to feel supported
–Eating eggs for breakfast helped me feel satisfied in the morning and less open to cravings during the day
What Challenged Me?
–More than one workout in a day. I wanted to go to the gym twice in the evening to walk on the treadmill, but it only happened once.
-Cravings. Working through those sugar cravings is tough work. I did really good and was able to (mostly) maintain my goal of no desserts.
I don’t plan on changing much for the upcoming week. I really like using my planner to write down my workouts and goals. The biggest change I’m going to make is to have a more intentional plan for lunch each day. If I won’t have leftovers, I need to have a healthy lunch to make so that I’m not tempted to make bad choices. That happened on Thursday this week, and it was the one day where I really veered off track.
