Week 4: Lost 1, Total 7
I gained one pound early in the week and lost it after the hike. I had gained because I made some coconut macaroons with 1 cup coconut, 2 egg whites and some splenda. It was just something to do since I had the day off. It made 6 servings and I wrapped and froze 4 of them and ate 2. But the next day, I ate all 4. So I haven’t learned any control yet! Otherwise, I haven’t been that hungry and no cravings. I did think some potato chips would taste awfully good. All I can think of is this is the most important thing I have to do right now.
IF YOU DON’T NEED IT, DON’T EAT IT.
Otherwise, I ate the usual things. I have eaten more than 6 oz of protein a few times so I probably need to watch that. I have been having some sugar free Jello.
Here’s my formula:
3 eggs for breakfast cooked in butter
2 cups salad/raw veggies for lunch plus 2 TBSP olive oil or mayo dressing
1 cup cooked veggies for dinner, such as roasted asparagus and cauliflower or cooked green beans with some olive oil or butter
6 oz of protein such as chicken, beef, fish for lunch and dinner
2 – 1 hour weight training sessions
1 hour step aerobics
3 hour hike
Blood sugar has been 95-108 in the mornings.
Waist to Hip Ratio: 96% down from 97%. Lost 1 inch off my waist and ½ inch off my hips!
Weight: 238. Lost 1 pound this week for a total of 7 in 4 weeks.
