Weekly Recap: Week 1

Every Sunday morning (hopefully) I will be posting a recap of the previous week (Sunday – Saturday). It will consist of all workouts from the previous week and my weigh in from that morning.

Week one with all the glory of newness and possibility. I spent most of the week getting my head right, cleaning out the pantry, and focusing on a cleaner diet of less sugar and carbs. After my initial weigh in of the year, and the reality of my “before” pictures, I am really pleased with my loss and efforts this week. Beyond week one, I really want this time to be a New Beginning.

Weigh in:

Today –  220.0
Previous (1/1) –  222.0
Difference since 1/1/2014 –  -2 pounds

Workouts:

I only did two, but it’s two more than I had been doing previously.

12/29 – 1 mile walk.

12/30 – none

12/31 – none

1/1 – none

1/2 – none

1/3 – Rejoined the gym and completed a workout. 42 minutes on the treadmill with varying intervals and inclines. Along with a cool down and stretching. I burned 459 calories.

1/4 – none.

I think focusing on cleaner eating, and limiting the mindless snacking really helped with me this week. Re-learning good habits is going to be tough. Onward to week two!

Week Two — Whole 30

Week Two was hard! It even got a little Emotional. I will address this in an upcoming post, but today I have a few bullet points to sum up the past week.

- I had iced coffee with cream twice during this past week. One was a tall, and one was a Grande.

- I love lean ground turkey. There are so many different options.

- Mrs. Dash salt-free seasoning is the best! A little goes a long way to enhance any meal.

- I miss drinking my nightly glass of skim milk.

- I am eating way more fruit than I am veggies.

- I am not drinking enough water. I don’t feel thirsty so it’s not an automatic habit for me to drink water. This needs to change.

- I still feel like I am sleeping better than I have in a while.

- I am trying to re-kindle my love for hot tea.

- I haven’t had ice cream in two weeks! HUGE accomplishment.

- I haven’t had a sweet pumpkin treat all month either. A huge accomplishment. Have you seen all the treats in the grocery stores? My heart weeps.

- BUT! I am searching to find good Paleo Pumpkin treat recipes. Link me if you have any to share!

- In hopes of doing some baking that is Whole30 friendly I bought coconut sugar, flour, and oil!

- Navigating restaurants can be tough, but it’s do-able.

- Today will be the biggest challenge yet. I am spending the whole day with Alex and his family. They eat out a lot and don’t keep many unprocessed options in their home.

- It’s all about planning and preparation. Not just today, but each and every day.
