Geez louise I’ve been as busy as can be this week. I started a new job on Monday. It’s going to be part time during the year but we’re in full time training this week. Plus I’ve had a bunch of freelance work to do …. AND a bunch of friend and family responsibilities. Life happens people, life happens.
Speaking of life happening, and by life I mean partly what I mentioned above and partly exams, the whole weight loss thing kind of fell off the wagon in the last week.
But that’s a reality of losing weight right? (I’m asking cause as I’ve mentioned I’m new to this.)
Side notes for a second:
Yesterday at work we had diversity training and it made me feel all warm and fuzzy inside. QUOTE IT OUT!
Also, remember when I had a bike and spent a billion hours a week training on it?
Me neither. Actually after my Ride for Heart ride I was so sick of being on my bike. I’ve pretty much ignored it all summer. I jumped on to ride over to the gym yesterday.
Let’s get to the weigh in. I was absolutely surprised with last night’s weigh in. Over the last week I lost my pedometer, was sleeping only 2-4 hours per night, ditched my planned workouts (but there were still some walks, etc just to get some moving in), and celebrated the end of exams with beer and wine.
- 1/2 pound!!!
Starting weight = 130 / Current weight = 26.5
I credit healthy snacking. My meals were satisfactory, but not great. But instead of the usual crackers and chips I eat when studying I stayed strong with fruit and veggies.
What healthy snacks do you use to help you lose weight?
