Happy Canada Day everyone! Very sorry for my w.l.w silence over the past few weeks – I am back at it now and will try very hard to not miss another. Summer vacation has started for my son, so I am now able to get out during the lunch hour for a walk, and I have time to pack a healthy lunch! I have however put on 2 lbs… I don’t know why I’m yo-yoing so much, maybe I’m not trying hard enough… I do still slip and eat poorly some days – I’m still struggling at tracking my calories, though my goal this week is to capture it all so I can figure out where I’m failing. I have been going to bed earlier, and drinking a ton more water… but we’ve been having slurpees pretty regularly and I know that’s not helping things at all.
I honestly feel like I’m writing a series on how not to lose weight… Here’s where I’m at:
#1 Started May 13, 2015: 235 lbs
#2: 233 lbs
#3: 237 lbs
#4: 231 lbs
#5: 233 lbs
2 months and 2 lbs is not okay… I’m not giving it all that I can, I know I’m not… so I’m kicking things up a bit this week and restricting what I eat a bit more. Here is my plan:
Breakfast: Smoothie – consisting of a banana, some yoghurt, frozen berries and oats
Snack: hard boiled egg – easy to make in advance, and great protein
Lunch: Salad – doesn’t matter what kind, but just a salad
Afternoon snack: fruit or veggies – an apple, some grapes, a banana…
Dinner: small serving of meat, quinoa and veggies
I am going to stick to this for the next week and hopefully see more movement on the scale. Thank you all for sticking with me through this, I appreciate all the positive comments… hearing about your struggles and successes… it is helping so much, and I hope these are helping you too. If you need more, I encourage you to join the Facebook group – the more, the merrier 🙂 We can do this!!
