This week is full of good news!
First of all, I weighed in at 193 this week! That is 5.5 pounds less than last week.
Now, before you start congratulating me, I must say I think this is due to a few things.
For one, I failed to mention in last week's McFatty post that some of my extra weight last time was
So this week, I noticed my pants fasten a little easier. In fact Friday night at the homecoming game, I found myself constantly pulling up my capri pants so that i wouldn't moon the whole dang home side.
I also lowered my calorie intake. You all totally confirmed my suspicions that 2100/day is just too much. I am now at a goal of 1700/day. It's a LOT harder to stay in that limit, I am finding! In fact, I went over twice this week. Oops.
Also this week Saturday I did the Susan G Koman Race for the Cure 5k. I'll blog more about that later, but that was 3.2 miles of walking/running that allowed me to have two bites of Eddie's cupcake at a birthday party later that night...and STILL stay under my caloric goal for the day! WOOT!
I must pause here and thank Kristin for all her help with making over my breakfasts. Eggs, wheat toast, and yogurt with granola have been keeping me happy until lunch for sure! This week I am making over my lunches. Trying to add some more healthy proteins to get me through the rest of the day. And as always? I am doing my best to drink more water and less, well, less of everything else.
(Although this has been a BAD week for sweet, delicious coffee drinks. They are my rewards for things, people, and I cannot quit them).
I'll keep you all updated if I find anything particularly wonderful for lunch. I am sure I will. Kristin posted some yummy ideas, and I am excited!
And of course I must give the lovely Blair big ups for creating this lovely way of keeping myself in check! Go check out her McFatty update. And of course the rest of them here along with the button so that you too can join in on McFatty Mondays if you so desire!.
