I’m happy to report that I have lost another 2 pounds! This means I’m down 4.4 pounds. Granted, it took me a month to get it off, but it’s coming off slowly.
Things I did this week that helped me be successful: I was really good about adding extra veggies into my daily eating. I upped the salads too, which helped me feel fuller without using up points. I also was really good about drinking all of my water.
Even as much as I love water, especially cucumber water, I have to admit that it gets hard to drink as the week goes on. Kind of boring, you know? I don’t drink coffee either. Someone suggested that I try a flavored tea and gave me a Bigelow I Love Lemon tea bag. It is wonderful! It’s not a black tea, rather it has rose hips, lemon, peppermint, and lemongrass. I have been drinking two mugfuls a day and it really helps get the water intake up.
As far as things I think I could have done better this week: tracking my points on the weekend. Although I’m sure that I stayed within my extra point allowance, I wasn’t really diligent with calculating my restaurant meals. In addition, I got ZERO exercise in this past week because I was fighting off either a cold or really bad allergies. I’m feeling much better this week, in fast yesterday was the first day in a while that I’ve felt normal.
Goals for this upcoming week: get back on the exercise wagon. Try a new recipe.
