Thanks...I’ll look it up.
Well this was my Friday to weigh in and I have to admit that since I started this journey I have seen nothing but GREAT results...until today. I have gained a pound. The first week I dropped 3, second I dropped 4 and third week I dropped 5 lbs. Not sure what I have done to gain a pound this week. And aside from the scale I checked my BMI (machine used at Curves) which is up a half of a pound. I know this shouldn’t seem like much but it is a bit discouraging as I go into the weekend....where I struggle the most. Not sure how I should change up my meals...if at all. I have been keeping my carbs under 70ish and calories in the 1500 to 1600's. I come from SAD diet high in carbs and everything else...so PB is a drastic change for me. A day in my life a month ago was as follows (keep in mind that I sit at a desk all day):
B: Sausage, egg, potato and cheese taco (flour tortilla) and salsa
L: Chicken fried chicken with extra gravy, french-fries and a salad with croutons and LOTs of 1000 Island dressing...instead of bringing my lunch and going for a work out id opt to eat out with the girls in the office.
S: Small or medium Blizzard from Dairy Queen (usually reeces peanut butter cups or chocolate chip cookie dough)...yes, I had a sweet tooth in the afternoons that wouldn’t quit!
D: I’d pick up pizza or make something fried with rice and gravy...or grab McDonald’s chicken nuggets
S: yep...another snack...usually something sweet!...and my poor kids would eat the same!
Now let’s look at yesterday in my PB life:
B: Nitrate free jalapeńo sausage, hardboiled egg and green/white tea
L: Salad (spinach, arugula lettuce, carrots, cauliflower, ˝ hardboiled egg, ˝ tsp Caesar dressing, pinch of sunflower seeds, 4 croutons) and a grilled tilapia fillet
S: Almonds and pistachios (about a handful) and organic applesauce
D: Baked trout (cooked with a splash of milk and butter) and grilled broccoli (cooked with a splash of coconut oil)
S: 1 slice of cantaloupe and a handful of pork rinds
This all added up to the following:
Cals Fat (g) Carbs (g) Prot (g)
1,698 112.4 58.5 118.8
Any ideas on what I am doing wrong here? I am still in the process of learning and i am still working on reading the PB...so let me know if I am doing something wrong.
Other than a bit of discouragement...I am feeling good. I am a bit hungry in the evenings...but I am proud of my vegtable intake and caloric intake. Cant wait to hear from you PB ladies and gents!
