Today was my 2nd weigh-in of this new re-re-re-start. Last week, I lost 8.5 pounds. Talk about a WHOOOOSH!
This week, I lost 1.5 pounds. This gives me a grand total of 54 pounds lost so far.
Not super excited, but happy and thankful for a loss. There are a few things I think I could have done differently to make the outcome slightly better, including:
- Being a little better about my water intake. I had a few days where I got my gallon in, and then others where I got about 1.5L in, which is about half of what I wanted
- Increasing my protein at breakfast. The first week, I ate 2 hardboiled egg whites, a carbsmart yogurt (80 calories, 3g carbs and 12g protein) and a string cheese. The majority of this past week, I forfeited the egg whites due to laziness of not boiling the eggs. Adding them back this week to see if it helps
- Potluck at work: We had a cinco de Mayo potluck at work. I ended up eating seasoned taco meat and refried beans, topped with lettuce, sour cream and queso. The beans were definitely something I should have held back on. I should have come prepared with an additional protein source.
How did you do this week? What can you do to improve?
