week 1: a review
well, week one is down and there are so many left to go. last week i decided to try to come up with my own eating plan & incorporate exercise to help jump start this weighloss thing. my plan? eat SOMETHING (healthy) for breakfast! my company caters lunch everyday, so i decided to eat the salad or chicken (when served), and for dinner i bought a bunch of Smart Ones by Weight Watchers. I also bought a bag of frozen chicken breats & frozen veggies, so when i get home i can just warm them up, and they're ready. everything is super quick and healthy. i did a good job sticking to my eating plan. it is so simple and the food is actually good. with my Smart One, i usually add some of the veggies, so i feel fuller. so far it's working. now the only thing i need to get under control is snacking throughout the day. there is so much candy, pretzles, chocolate, and sodas around my office, it's crazy. it's VERY tempting & i've been cheating (eating M&Ms!). i have switched to diet sodas, and while i know they aren't that good for you, i've eliminated the empty calories of regular soda (i'm a recovering Pepsi Junkie).
so...did my plan work? well...i went to the gym 3 times last week (worked out w/ a trainer once), and i watched what i ate a lot more, but i didn't seem to drop any weight. i think this may be due to the fact that Aunt Flow came & brought some excess water weight with her. now that she's gone, hopefully i will see the scale move.
tonight, it's back to Bally's for a Kwando (kick boxing) class. wish me luck & if you're on a weightloss mission. keep it up!
oh...i will try to post my "before" picture & my measurements next time. stay tuned.
