Slow and Steady Wins The Race

So I owe you another weigh in. Today I’m at 132.8. That’s almost two pounds down since I started this blog weighing at 134.6. That’s only 0.5 lb per week weight loss. Not exactly as fast as I would like, but at least I’m seeing some kind of result. I also only weigh myself in the morning so I can be consistent and see change.  Your weight fluctuates during the day depending on food and drink intake so it’s best to weigh in the morning before you’ve had anything to eat or drink (also it’s usually less than during the day so that always makes me feel better!).

A combination of consuming less calories and working out is the best recipe for results but we all know I’ve been slacking in both departments. I have new goals for this week to make sure once I hit my calorie mark at 1200 that I don’t exceed it, and I hope to make more of an effort to workout. Daniel has been failing at training me so it’s all his fault! Ok, I know I should be the one making the effort, not him (but I’ll blame him just a little, ha).

Here’s what all I ate yesterday:

Meal Food Calories
Breakfast Laughing Cow cheese wedge with whole wheat tortilla 180
Lunch Salad Bar 324
Dinner Fried chicken wing and drumstick 206
Mashed potatoes and white gravy 140
Fried okra 86
2nd Dinner Left over Frickdella with brown rice 170
Steamed veggies 75
Total 1181

We’ve been doing a lot of moving so my parent’s made dinner simple by picking up some chicken and sides from the grocery store. Not the healthiest but definitely a nice change for once. I rarely eat fried chicken and mashed potatoes. It was so good!

We have officially completely moved out of the old apartment now. FIVE more days until we can move into our next place! I’m soooo excited! Can you tell?
