Week 2: Lost 4, Total 4
No cheats this week! I had some thoughts about buttered popcorn and French fries, but I didn’t feel compelled to act on those thoughts. I’m getting excited to see some progress. It will happen.
I am planning to cut out cheese for a while. I have thought for a while that it might be preventing me from losing weight. Jonny’s boot camp doesn’t allow cheese. So I will try it.
I eat 3 meals a day and rarely snack.
Breakfast is usually 3 eggs fried in butter and some black coffee.
At lunches and dinners, I usually have around 6 oz protein and either 2 cups salad or 1 cup cooked vegetable. I use a little butter on cooked vegetables and olive oil and/or mayo on salads.
Sample lunch and dinners:
Asian chicken soup with chicken, bok choy, cilantro and green beans.
Ground pork stir fry with bean sprouts and green beans.
Hamburger patty with cheese and roasted asparagus
Salmon and roasted cauliflower
Tuna salad with cucumber, romaine lettuce, left over green beans, olive oil and garlic
Green chile Chili with ground turkey, celery, zucchini and green peppers.
Pizza salad with pepperoni, provolone cheese, romaine lettuce, olive oil and fresh oregano.
3 hour hike
2 mile walk
1 hour of aerobics – step and elliptical combo
