Breakfast was as usual, of course.
Lunch was another chicken breast with romaine salad with Italian vinaigrette dressing. I decided to add some multigrain pita chips & hummus as well to help me stay full throughout the day. I had the last of my watermelon (about 4 chunks) for dessert).
After work, I made myself some lower calorie macaroni & cheese and ate a chicken leg quarter with a tomato. The mac & cheese was 50% wheat pasta and I used almond milk and Smart Balance with the cheese powder. I know it's not the best choice, but mac 'n' cheese is just one of those foods I can't resist...haha! I didn't eat a metric ton of it either...
|Didn't eat the skin! |
It's actually kind of gross to me now.
Since I was getting used to the new feel of the adjustments, I didn't do any upper body work on the trail today. Besides, my arms are SORE! haha!
And that was that. OH! Before I forget... WEIGH IN!
I now weigh...
|I'm actually NOT sucking it in! WHAAT?|
WOO! I've lost 9 pounds! I was SO SO close to my 10 pound mark! I know I will reach it by the end of the week! I've just got to! My hope is to lose another 10 pounds by the end of July! YAYYYY! I know I can do it!!!
Thanks for all the advice and encouragement, everybody! I'm going to try some protein powder later this week when I pick up a few groceries per recommendation from several of you.
It's supposed to rain the rest of the week, so we shall see what I'm able to do tomorrow, Week 43!
