Week 1 – What fun!

No really, this isn’t so bad.  I knew it would be easy when I didn’t have an extra restrictions (no dairy, breastfeeding, etc).  The only barrier I have going on is I messed up my knee a couple of weeks ago and I’m not exercising it yet.  I’m walking much better on my two and a half block hike to work from daycare, but I know its not ready for three miles.

Starting Weight: 277

This Week’s Weight: 273.6

Difference: 3.4

You know what, that is an awesome start.  That was after three days of eating out for my husband’s birthday weekend.  I woke up this morning feeling bloated and a little discouraged.  It didn’t matter!  I was able to eat some food truck food. I am increasing my fruit & veggie intake. I found a great deal on blackberries at Market Produce (at Midtown Global Market), and I restocked my freezer with frozen green beans. (my favorite easy veggie fill up food)

I hope after this next week my knee is back enough to try some more walking (I would say I would try to do the Shred, but there is no way jumping jacks are in my near future).  My goal is fruit every day, fresh or not.  I think I’ve found a good breakfast that fills me up enough until lunch (plain Greek yogurt, lowfat granola, fresh fruit, small fat free latte).  I can do this!

      I’ve found that it is the perfect blend of protein and carbs for me, and it doesn’t seem to jack with my tummy too bad. Also, I the only one in the house who likes it, so I don’t have to share. Muahahahaaa.

    Great start! Yay for you! Added bonus of having already figured out a breakfast that works for you – one less thing to think about in the morning! :)
