Another week down and this was a tough one for me. I was on my period for most of the week so I pretty much felt bloated all week and I fought a lot of cravings! I won though.
As you will recall last week I posted about making it to the 10 pound weight loss and ordering my Nutribear. It finally came. Hubby and I got our next month’s shipment and we each had a 10 pound bear. Well, the bear is not 10 pounds, but it signifies a 10 pound weight loss.
It really is a motivator. Hubby gave his to our son to play with but I am keeping mine and will be adding to it hopefully at the end (or before) of this next month.
So yesterdays weigh-in has me down another 2 pounds to a total of 11.4 lost!!! (Last Saturday was technically 9.4 you remember and I reached 10 on Sunday).
Hubby was down 3 for a total of 17.4! WOO HOO!!
I also started adding exercise, outside of the typical chase after a 4 year old and go up and down our stairs everyday. I started back to my Leslie Sansone Walk DVDs. I have a variety of them as I like to do different workouts each day and it felt really good.
So we started our week 4 yesterday and 1 week from today we are going to treat ourselves to a steak dinner. Hubby and I agreed to do that after 1 month and I tell you I am looking forward to it! I looked at the nutrition information already (Longhorn Steakhouse) and I will be ordering things a little different this time. Not going to stress too much but I will skip the butter and use my butter spray on my sweet potato, I may get the house ranch dressing and use it sparingly and I will definitely NOT get the parmesan crust added to my steak. The calories in that is MORE than the steak itself! YIKES!!! It will still be yummy and I can’t wait!
As you can tell, I still think about food. The Nutrisystem food is good and I have gone though this first month and been able to try several things and really figure out what I like and don’t like but there are days I miss some really good french fries or Domino’s pizza.
I did order an AirFryer and hopefully will get that tomorrow. I am looking forward to trying some recipes in this. I have a bag of sweet potato fries that I can cook in there and will try some zucchini. I may also try some chicken wings for a flex meal. I also want to make a pizza with a cauliflower crust. I am getting excited to try new dishes because we will not be on Nutrisystem forever and I want to be prepared. 🙂
