Fit Friday!

I didn't weigh in because I'm feeling so good and working so hard this week. I just want to keep going and not get distracted by the number on the scale. I feel good and that is the most important thing.

I meal planned, we stuck to our meal plan, I portioned everything out and had some great, intense work outs. Garth did weigh in and he lost a pound. He has started running again and weight lifting. My workout schedule looked like this:

Sunday - Walked 3 miles with Garth (it has become our tradition before church)
Monday - P90X Plyo (first 30 minutes)
Tuesday - P90X Plyo (the last 30 minutes)
Wednesday - P90X Cardio X
Thursday - Elliptical for 30 min (I was too sore for anything else!)
Friday - Elliptical for 20 min (Still so sore from P90X!)
Saturday - Run with Garth

I loved working out intensely again, breaking a sweat and working hard. I can't describe how gosh darn good that felt. Or how good I feel. I feel better and it impacts how I eat the rest of the day. I just want to keep going and not lose momentum and hope for a big loss next week!

I did notice I eat WAY too many carbs. I am going to really work hard on getting more protein in my diet this weekend and next week. I bought almonds and deli turkey to up my protein uptake since it is way too low. Any reccs for other ways to get protein? I don't really love protein shakes, but I may start putting protein powder in my oatmeal.

How is your week going?

Sound like you're on a roll!

I struggle with protein as well, but I've really noticed how much longer I stay full if I eat higher protein so I've been working it in where I can! I've added a cup of skim milk to my breakfast which has helped me cut out my midmorning snack! I also really like greek yogurt for an added boost.

I'm a long time reader, but don't comment. I, too, am working on weight loss and it is hard! I have another 8-10 lbs to go, which doesn't sound like much, but at the rate I'm going, it'll take forever! I just remind myself that it's all about baby steps!

Anyway, about the protein: All natural peanut butter is the best. It has the good fats and lots of protein. Apples and peanut butter is one of my favorite snacks!

Good luck!

Glad you had had a good workout week!
I don't like protein powder.. maybe I haven't found the right one yet but the ones I've tried have made me puke, eek!
I suggest greek yogurt, egg whites, almonds (I always carry the 100cal packs around with me) and cottage cheese, those are my favorite low calorie protein fillers.

Greek Yogurt has a LOT of protein as well as eggs.

I love that you broke up the plyo- it's SO intense! That's a really good idea. It feels so good to work out, doesn't it? Although I'm having a hard time this week, I'm just dragging my feet! Gotta keep it up though :)

A little cheese is good for protein, a couple cubes of cheese and an apple. Or peanut butter and celery. Or almonds. It's so hard to get, isn't it? I have a hard time getting enough protein too, but I always eat waaay too many carbs.

I'm sure you'll see some loss next week, all of that muscle you're gaining has got to be burning away! I actually just posted about my experience with the terrible scale- that's so funny! :)
