I'm still working on sticking to my calorie allowance and healthy eating plan. I did pretty well this week. I find making a big salad that will last 2-3 days helps me make good choices. I've had salad with fat free dressing for a snack a couple times this week.
We also had hot spicy chicken salad for dinner once. I absolutely love hot spicy chicken. I buy chicken in bulk when on sale. I then poach it with chicken bullion. After the chicken cools, I shred it and put it in individual serving freezer bags. It makes cooking during the week easier. I often saute the chicken in low fat dressings and/or hot sauce.
I try to buy chips in individual serving bags or bag my own after measuring them. I also make sure to have fruit on hand too. Having easy to grab healthy snack makes eating well easier.
Here are my workouts for the week:
Friday: Jog 20 minutes, weight training circuit 30 minutes, and 10 minutes of walking
Sunday: Elliptical trainer 55 minutes
Monday: Elliptical trainer 55 minutes
Tuesday: Shred It With Weights level 1 with 5 lb. kettlebell (25 minutes) and Elliptical trainer 25 minutes. The Shred workout was much easier with the 5 lb. kettlebell versus the 10 lb kettlebell I used last week. I wasn't even sore. I think it is time to try the level 2.
Wednesday: Elliptical trainer 55 minutes
Thursday: Ran 5 k on treadmill in 31 minutes and 26 weight training circuit
My hard work paid off this week. I lost 3 lbs. So far I'm down 7 lbs. I wish it was more but I'm happy that the weight is coming off. I just hope it is not my body's natural fluctuations. I really need to buy a tape measure to take my measurements.
How'd you do this week? If you have a link, leave it in the comments and I'll stop by.
