Week 5: Lost 3, Total 10
I lost 3 pounds early this week! Woo hoo! I would love to keep losing 1-2 pounds each week with no plateaus.
My energy was a little zapped so I had some protein powder after working out. Eating right has become so easy for me. I cannot take it for granted though. My friend was talking about a homemade huckleberry pie with cinnamon and sugar on top. It sounded good but I had no desire at all to eat it.
I made some marinated chicken breast and then marinated some flank steak in the same type of soy sauce, sherry, garlic and red pepper flakes marinade. For some salad dressing I made a wasabi mayonnaise with soy sauce and toasted sesame oil. That was really good!
I made several servings of the chicken and flank steak and froze them in small packages to take to work. I’ve been packing my lunch for work which includes salad, dressing and one of the meat packages. I also pack my gym bag to stop on the way home a couple of nights a week. Monday is weight training on my own and Wednesday is mostly cardio and abs. On Friday morning, I workout with my friends and a trainer.
I’ve still been at around 30g carbs daily.
2 – 1 hour weight training sessions
1 hour step aerobics
3 hour hike
Blood sugar has been around 103 in the mornings.
Weight: 235. Lost 3 pounds this week for a total of 10 in 5 weeks.
