Well, Today is Wednesday, so I'm weighing in, and the number is not so pretty, but I think it's because I ate something like six stuffed mushrooms right before bed last night. :)
Really, I think the closer you get to goal, the slower the weight wants to come off, and that's the truth, dammit.
Weigh in: 162.6
That's a miserable, lame loss of only .4 pounds for the week. I DO, however, think it'll be way further down next week. Here's why:
Dan and I ate out a lot this week. Even though I made healthy choices the whole way (salads, grilled everything, burger with no bun, etc) - I still have NO clue how much salt was in all the stuff they gave me. Plus a burger I'd make at home would be around 200 calories. One they'd give me could be closer to 500 or more! So, I need to take a break from eating out and focus on my huge salads and at-home recipes.
Here are the official numbers for the day:
Average loss of 1.64 lbs per week for the last 5 weeks.
-17.4 lbs since 5/21 (2 months)
Average loss of 2.1 lbs per week over the last 2 months.
So! I'd now like to share with you a few recipes. (grin)
Something I'm munching on right now:
Peel and slice one large cucumber. (This one was my ginormous cucumber so I did half of it.)
Chop into thick slices, one sweet onion. Mix them together in a bowl with:
1/4 cup Apple Cider Vinegar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tbsp Splenda
Pepper to your preference
Chill in the fridge for at least an hour.
It's the most refreshing summery crisp salad! If you like a sweet/vinegary type of taste, you'll love this.
So! Also I wanted to show you my favorite breakfast:
This is 3 eggs scrambled with spinach, broccoli, turkey, red bell pepper, cheddar cheese and topped with chopped tomato, sour cream and 1/2 sliced avocado. I also like to chop up zucchini lately and sautee it in the pan with mushrooms and broccoli, then add the other things. As many veggies as I can pack in to my "scrambles" in the morning, the better! :)
