I have had a really good 2 days. I feel great and energized. Even though I am not relying on the scale (I want health and happiness not weight) I am down 4 pounds this week. I am seeing a difference in my clothes and my energy levels. My strength is increasing as well as my endurance. I have not felt that I have been missing out on anything and I am enjoying my food and cooking. The only problem I am still having is getting out there and getting a good amount of sun and getting to bed at a decent hour. My brain runs at night and I have a hard time getting to sleep....and therefore waking up on time in the morning. I have completed 2 (minus the pull-ups....I need to find a good PRIVATE spot to start working on this) of the "lift heavy things" from Mark's Fitness book....as well as walking with my boys and Curves 3 times this week. Great week...
Here is what I had yesterday and where I am at so far:
B: Sausage, onion and spinach omelet with homemade salsa (cooked in butter)
S: Medium Apple
L: Herb crusted tilapia and a big salad with lots of veggies and sunflower seeds (I used actual Caesar dressing mixed with lemon juice...I hate most other dressings!)
D: Sautéed jalapeño pork sausage (nitrate free/ free range) with green peppers, onions, fresh spinach and tomatoes over broccoli
This all came out to approx:
I am currently at 208.8 lbs from 220 over 3 weeks ago....
