Fit Friday!

The stats this week:

Pounds Lost: 1.8 pound

To Go: 50.4 to go
Total Lost: 4.6 pounds


Lets celebrate one month of being back on track and sticking to it. No binges. No deprivation. No starvation. It's just been about working out everyday, moderation, lots of fruits and veggies, and truly savoring food like a fine wine. I've been consistently losing each week, woohoo! This quote above just clicked for me. I don't want to struggle with weight my entire life. I just need to keep on keeping on. Keep being consistent even if I mess up and even if it feels like I have forever to go. I will get there. Slow and steady wins the race, right?!  

Crazily enough, I'm actually starting to just enjoy the journey. Instead of wanting so badly to get to the other side (i.e. my goal weight) I'm actually savoring this time. Enjoying it even. Enjoying the food I'm eating. Enjoying the workouts. Enjoying the weigh ins and seeing the number drop each week. Enjoying seeing my jeans fit better. 

My workouts this week:

Sunday - Rest
Monday - T25 Beta Dynamic Core
Tuesday - T25 Beta Core Cardio
Wednesday - T25 Beta Rip't Circuit
Thursday - T25 Beta Upper Focus
Friday  - T25 Beta Speed 2.0
Saturday - T25 Beta Rip't Circuit

Eats this week:

Sunday - Breakfast was two eggs in a cup with spinach and 1/4 cup feta. Lunch with the family was chicken chili, salad, and a cornbread muffin. Dinner was green beans and leftover mac and cheese I made Saturday.

Monday - Breakfast was a Mocha Green Monster Smoothie and an apple mid morning. Lunch was leftover chicken chili and carrots. My afternoon snack was a Fiber One Protein Coconut Almond and it was really good and filling. Dinner was a slice of pizza and green beans.

Tuesday - Breakfast was a Lean Cuisine Egg White Veggie Sandwich with half of a Pomegranate Blueberry Powerhouse Smoothie. Lunch was an Amy's Burrito and green beans. Snack was an apple and half of a Biggby Cinnamon Honey Latte. Dinner was leftover pizza and Brussels Sprouts. 

Wednesday - Breakfast was a Lean Cuisine Egg White Veggie Sandwich with the other half of my Biggby Cinnamon Honey Latte. Lunch was another Amy's burrito with zucchini this time. Snack was an apple and almonds. Dinner was a Qdoba Naked Burrito.

Thursday - Breakfast was a Lean Cuisine Egg White Veggie Sandwich and a Cinnamon and Spice Oatmeal. I'm trying to eat more for breakfast and I notice it really does help me eat less the rest of the day. I usually space out my  breakfast though and eat the LC Sandwich after my Beta workout and enjoy the oatmeal a couple hours later at work. It works for me. Lunch was Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds and Unsweetened Almond Milk with a few almonds. Snack was green beans. Dinner was crock pot Italian chicken with mashed potatoes and edamame.

Friday - Breakfast was a Lean Cuisine Egg White Veggie Sandwich and a Cinnamon and Spice Oatmeal. I forgot how much I love oatmeal. YUM. Lunch will be Honey Bunches of Oats with Almonds and Unsweetened Almond Milk with a few almonds. I can be so boring sometimes. I like what I like and I just stick with it! I will probably have almonds and an apple again for an afternoon snack and I think tonight might be Mexican. I'm on a Mexican kick this week.

How are you all doing?
Anyone else loving oatmeal right now? Or celebrating a month of being back on track?

Good for you Linds!! That is worth celebrating. I also am loving oats, with some almond milk, chia seeds, dried cranberries, slivered almonds, and sprinkle of dark choc chips. Yum!
