Fit Friday!

The stats this week:

Pounds Lost: 1 pound

To Go: 54 to go

As I like to say, a loss is a loss is a loss. I'll call that a success! Especially because this week has been insanely busy with an off site retreat, some really early mornings and not much time to work out or walk on lunch.

Tuesday I did take a lunch and instead of walking around the sub near work, G and I went to the River Walk Trail and enjoyed a peaceful walk on the river. It was so nice and such a great break from a busy day.

I don't know what it is about water, but it instantly calms me. I love it so much. That was definitly my workout highlight of the week. Since I'm in between Alpha and Beta my workouts were pretty random this week:

Sunday - T25 Cardio
Monday - Walk Manny 45 minutes and The Shred on lunch
Tuesday - Walk Manny 45 minutes and 45 min walk on lunch
Wednesday - T25 Speed 1.0 and walk an hour on lunch
Thursday - Walk Manny 25 minutes
Friday - Walk Manny 25 minutes

We didn't eat out at all this week. I meal planned again this week and did a lot of cooking. I really think I spend more money when I cook than if we get take out everyday. It gets really expensive! I do love how the Produce section of my shipping list is overflowing. You know you're eating healthy when that happens!

A favorite has been bagel and avocado with a Sargento Light String Cheese. It's a filling, delicious breakfast. Or I will share this bagel with G and have two hard boiled eggs. It's a nice change from the eggs in a mug.

Another food success this week was beef stew in the crock pot. It was such a hit! For more of my eats this week check this post out

I start Beta next Monday and I'm excited! I can't wait! I got this cool planner to start getting my life in order, meal plan, and schedule my workouts. I get excited about little things like this. 

How are you guys doing?

Yay for a loss! I actually started the Whole30. You should check it out sometime. Best luck I have had for loosing weight. They have a book about the whole idea behind whole 30. I also do schedule my workouts. It's the only way to ensure I do it.

Congrats on the loss! As for meal planning advice I am no expert but one thing that helps me keep costs down is I check my receipts and I add up how much it costs for me to make each meal. It takes a little time, but I know which meals are the cheapest for me to make. Also, I make a double batch of some things so I can freeze half for the following week. This enables me to save some by buying some ingredients in bulk or splitting ingredient cost between two meals. If you're interested I posted my
meal plan this morning. Also, at the end of the post I included some info on a healthy living link-up I'm hosting on Wednesday. Feel free to link up any posts like this one!
