Hello everyone. How are you doing in your first week of resolutions!? I completed my SASS 5-day Fast Forward phase. It was not nearly as hard as my previous attempts, perhaps because I was distracted and busy most of the time. I ended up losing 8 pounds and feel totally de-bloated and ready to start the new phase. Here’s my weekly weigh-in:
Starting Weight: 137 pounds (December 30, 2012)
Current Weight: 130 pounds (January 5, 2012)
My Goal: 125 pounds
Deadline: April 1, 2013
Today started out great – its very exciting to return to regular food after detox. My meals are below, as recorded in my food journal on MyFitnessPal.com. Although SASS does not preach calorie-counting, I really like the MyFitnessPal app because it not only counts everything I eat, but also negates what I burn through workouts. Which is great when I see that I’ve overeaten and can fix it by doing a little cardio, even if just walking up and down my stairs at home for 20 minutes like I did today! When I’m very focused on losing weight, my tendency is to cut too many calories, especially on hard workout days, which can totally backfire and lead to a binge. Does anyone else use an online food journal? If you also use MyFitnessPal, feel free to friend me @ Turtle177.
For those in the weight loss competition / jewelry giveaway, be sure and check in weekly! I’d love to hear how you’re doing, what’s working for you, what tools you use, or anything else you want to share. Have a great weekend…
