This morning (Wednesday) I weighed in at 160.6 pounds. That’s only about a half pound loss since my last weigh-in, and a total of about 3 pounds lost in the last week or so – but I’ll take it!
Especially after going through my recent long-term stall and not seeing the scales move at all there for weeks on end.
I feel GREAT this morning too. My stomach *feels* smaller. I think I’m finally past the “alcohol stall” from the drinks I had over the weekend.
After my little splurge on Monday, I hit the gym HARD on Tuesday morning.
Of course, I hit a drive through on the way there (geez, I know, heh) and didn’t just get breakfast – I went “grocery shopping” at McDonalds. LOL.
I ordered two Sausage Egg McMuffin’s – both with double meat double egg. (It’s cheaper than ordering four!)
So I got four fried eggs and four pieces of sausage, plus a large Iced Coffee with sugar free vanilla.
I ate about half that by 11am.
I have to share this fun little video with you, lol. And my personal tip: don’t try to change clothes on a moving treadmill! I almost wiped out yesterday trying to get out of an undershirt about a third of the way into my workout when I got too hot. Here’s the video my friend Kim shared with me (she’s my workout buddy):
Hilarious! And THIS is the reason those “calorie counters” on your exercise machines are completely useless. There’s no way they can count what you’re REALLY doing on the treadmill. LOL.
I often work out my arms while on steep incline at a fast pace. And sometimes Kim and I take weights for our arms too. I also do some of my Zumba moves at the same time, to really get my heart rate up – or work in other moves to target/tone certain areas.
After my workout, and my second sausage & egg, I watched “The Following” – a new series on Fox (very intense, but right up my alley!) – and then took a long afternoon nap. Around 5:30 I had another sausage & egg. My goal was to eat super clean (very low carb). Plus I didn’t have a huge appetite, which is a good thing!
I loved having the food on hand throughout the day, which – for a non cook like me, lol – was really handy. I’m bad to go “grocery shopping” at fast food drive-through’s like that. When I go to Wendy’s I always pick up a couple of extra salads too.
One of the kids ate my 4th Sausage Egg McMuffin (with the muffin – I don’t eat those, of course). So for my last meal – around 8pm I think – I had the leftover hot wings from the party this weekend. About 7 hot wings plus some string cheese and a few fried pork skins. It was a fun little “snack meal” while I watched a movie and wound down for the night.
Yesterday was a super easy, super low carb day. Nothing green in there, but I’m going out to lunch today so I’ll be sure to get something green in. And I’m off to the gym again this evening – where I plan to try some of those Treadmill moves again. LOL.
