Trim Up Tuesday (Week 3)

This week has been super hard, because I couldn't eat solid food until Saturday night. So many people said to me, "Oh, just have a milkshake ..." or ice cream, etc etc. The problem is when I get hungry, sweet things are just not appealing -- I want REAL food. My "real" food this week consisted of chicken broth. The thing I liked about this week is I could drink all the soda + energy drinks I wanted without feeling guilty about the liquid calories. And I did! I only worked out a couple of times because I knew my body was stressed (my hair started falling out by Thursday) and I didn't want to make it worse. So, in the end I didn't gain and I still wound up losing a pound.

As a side note, I had a goal to lose 4 pounds by August 8th (I Will). As you can see, I have already surpassed that goal by 1.5 pounds, and I still have this week and next to go.

I'm shaping up this week for a float trip this weekend. I'll have details about that trip up in a day or two, along with details of my first Mystic Tan experience and updates on my tongue piercing.

Weight

  • I have lost 5.5 pound(s) since I started!
  • I lost 1 pound(s) this week!
  • I am 5.5 pound(s) away from my ideal weight.

BMI

  • My BMI is: 21.5. This is considered normal.

Exercise

  • I worked out 2 time(s) this week.
  • I did 1 hour(s) and 25 minutes of cardio this week
  • I did 1 hour(s) and 20 minutes of brisk activity this week

Goals

  • I did meet my last goal
  • My Last Goal Was: Stay healthy, since my diet is mainly liquids. Focus on nutrition and not weight this week.
  • My new goal is: Work it hard Mon, Tues, Weds and Thurs in preparation for this weekend.

Congrats on hitting your goals even with having to be more creative this week.

I was thinking if I should congratulate you for losing 1 pound this week and then again it must be hard on you not being able to eat 'real' food when you are hungry. It is about the same for me; when I am really hungry, I have the urge for 'real' food too. Funny thing is, I will have the urge for snacks only when I am full. Not very good though course it'll make me put on weight. However, I manage to control my urge most time :)

Looks like you'll be having an exciting weekend ahead ;)
