About a year and a half ago, I stepped on the scale at my all-time high. Since then, I’ve had two numbers in my mind: 1. the weight I think I need to be, and 2. the weight I want to be.
As of today, I broke another 5 lb. mark! I’m down 1.25 lbs. since last week and feeling great! I’m 4 lbs. away from the weight I think I need to be and 16 from what I want to be. And the weekly (or monthly) weigh-ins give me a chance to stay accountable with myself and my friends.
Breakfast was a small glass of Bolthouse Farms Vanilla Chai Protein drink and a Low-fat Blueberry Chobani Greek Yogurt with some Kashi Go Lean Toasted Berry Crumble Cereal mixed in.
For my morning snack, I had some trail mix, and a little later some California Poppers (recipe from my friend Catherine’s blog; it’s basically raw cauliflower with a drizzle of olive oil, salt, pepper, chili powder, and cumin).
Lunch is a small salad, whole wheat bun with chicken breast, Asiago cheese, and some dijon mustard, and 1/2 cup of diced peaches.
Tonight is Girls on the Run, an after-school volunteer program I help coach in my community. It’s a great way to mentor kids and teach them about health and fitness, and I get a little exercise too. At the end of the season, we’ll run a 5K together (a first for me). After GOTR, I plan on helping my husband finish weeding the front flowerbeds (lifting bags of mulch has been my strength training this week).
Happy Thursday! Get Fit, Stay Fit, and Enjoy the Journey!
