Woot Woot, holla! Okay so I am one week into my NEW ME!
Let’s start with what I changed this week.
I started Couch-to-5k. Why? 1.) Because my broke ass can’t afford a gym 2.) I get bored with the videos & my kids/dh stare at me doing them, or make fun of everything bouncing up and down. no lie.
I started wk1 day1 last wed. BUT wanted to change the days I do them so I kinda started over yesterday =P That means Tue, Thur, and Sat. will be dedicated to couch-to-5k.
I saw a listing for Zumba at my daughter’s school and SO BADLY want to sign up. Again, it’s money…which we don’t have…so we will see. In the mean time I wanted to start the 30 shred too, but not EVERY day, just 2x a week with the c25k.
This has been my biggest change yet!! I don’t like “diets” per say, but I am changing my bad foods into good foods like:
white rice > brown rice
white bread > whole wheat bread (or even better tortillas)
crackers > carrots, celery, and nuts
sweets > fruit (but I’m not gonna lie, I did buy some sugar free candies =P)
Also, I am counting calories!! Like I said last week. I bought 400 calorie fix. So each meal is designated to only 400 calories. So for me…
Breakfast 400 cal
Snack 150 cal
Lunch 400 cal
Snack 150 cal
Dinner 400 cal
Total 1500 (give or take)
We did order pizza Monday night. I did get a thin crust, veggie pizza =) Ate 3 slices (which was like 750 calories, yikes! but better then their pepperoni pizza that was like 330 cal a slice *insert oiy face*) and besides water, I have had diet soda, coffee, and tea.
With my coffee, before I would drink a mocha (tons of sugar and calories). Now I am limited to 2 T of creamer (60 cal) & splenda (no cal, woot!).
I am NOT a cook at all. I grew up with chicken, caned veggies, and rice. So I am determined to start cooking more home made dinners, another words no pre-packaged, pre-made foods. So this week I made…
Chicken, Broccoli, and Candied Cashew Stir Fry over brown rice. It was soooooo delicious! Even my girls and *gasp* my husband liked it. (he is a pizza, steak & potatoes dude…so it was amazing he said…yes said…that he liked it) minus some of the veggies. of course.
Menu for the rest of the week (I grocery shop on Tues):
Wed: I am making breakfast for dinner. Eggs, bacon (turkey bacon for me!), and whole wheat pancakes.
Thurs: Black Bean Soup
Fri: Mini Sliders with wheat rolls, grilled onions, and steamed broccoli.
Sun: Petite lasagnas (subbing the noodles for sliced zucchini) with a small salad.
Mon: Greek Chicken with veggies & potatoes
I started last week (wk1) weighing in at 218.7 lbs. This week I am….
215.4 lbs!! Yay!! Which means I lost 3 lbs! I am beyond happy. Especially since I only worked out once (weighed before 2nd work out) this week.
Goals for next week:
Drink more water!
Go to sleep earlier!!
Also, I want to give a big THANK YOU to everyone who has been giving me support!! It means the world to me ♥♥♥
