Weekly Wrap Up #3


Despite the fact that once again the scale did not move, I had a really great week.

I tried some fun new foods and meals, like these Baked Chickpeas, taco salads and even Caramelized Onion & Chicken Burgers. I was really happy to have my own homegrown tomatoes as a side dish.

I also tried and fell in love with my first KIND bar. So so good. Basically the best candy bar ever, but its made of nuts, tastes way better than a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup. 190 calories and 7 grams of protein. Perfect for a snack or dessert.

I was under my calorie limit all week, I tired to stay around 1200 most days. Although I did go over a few times, I was always under 1610. Here’s the graph:

After some disappointing news tonight, Blake and I went out to dinner. I decided on the burger and fries. I said I was going to not eat carbs after breakfast in hopes of breaking this stalemate with the scale. But I broke that rule, oh well. I’m not worried about it. I know I did really well most of the week. I’m trying to really get myself in the mindset of living a health life, instead of trying to lose weight right now.

This was also the first week of my half marathon training. Definitely one of the best weeks of running I’ve ever had. I ran a total of 11 miles. I also walked Kia almost everyday, the loop we walk is 2.5 miles. I also spent a day at the aquatic center with my sister who was babysitting my (my brother’s kids)  niece and nephew. So I spent a few hours chasing a 3 years old and lugging around a baby (I’m sure that burns a lot of calories!). It was a lot of fun, although I did manage to get my first sunburn of the summer.

    According to the graph, you should have lost 1 pound last week. Because 3500 calories = 1 pound. But, hopefully we all know that not all calories are created equal. I really want you to be successful so I will offer suggestions whenever I can. I made a suggestion earlier this week to eat the same amount of calories but in more frequent meals. There’s something to be said for eating 6 times a day v. 3 (or GASP! – less).

      I agreed to do a new diet plan which I’m supposed to follow 3 days a week, so on the days I don’t follow that plan I will do 6 smaller meals.
