Weight Loss: Day 23

July 27, 2016

Day 23: That’s a lot of sweat

Today I told myself, “No Excuses!” I will get through this hot day and I will do my exercise!

And you know what?

I did it!

A few days ago I did the Total Body Cardio Fix from the 21 day fix workout, and I couldn’t make it all the way through. I had also worked out on an empty stomach and tried jumping into it full blast. Today, my approach was a little more tame. I took each exercise carefully as I didn’t want to over-exert myself too much.

It was definitely the right choice.

You all want to hear some great news?

I weighed in this morning

172.5!!

Weight Loss: Day 23- Seeing new results!

I love seeing new numbers on the scale! How wonderful it is to break out of the norm!

Here is what the menu looked like:

Breakfast
Ezekiel Flax Bread
Almond Butter

Snack
Nothing

Lunch
Lamb Chop
Wild Rice and mushrooms
Raspberries

Snack
Mango Banana Smoothie

Dinner
Beef Broccoli
Spinach
Kale
Blueberries
Carrots

Dessert
Nothing

When going over what I had for dinner- the spinach, kale, blueberries and carrots were leftovers from my lunch. I was full off the lamb! And before you start thinking “This girl eats like a bird! I could never have just a small portion of food” Believe me, I’m not one of those girls! I can eat a huge bag of marshmallows, a big greasy burger, a whole plate of fries and still have room for chicken wings.

My workout for the day:

21 Day Fix- Total Body Cardio Fix

Total calories consumed today: 1348

I’ve found that working out on an empty stomach doesn’t work, but I really want to feel this good earlier in the day. After my workout I usually feel pretty good. My muscles are stretched, my heart feels like it’s pumping really well, and I just have so much energy… Great. Now I can have a lot of energy- right before bed!

I think I will need to get up early tomorrow, have some breakfast, then do my workout in the morning before it gets too hot. Tomorrow I work a little later in the day so it might be nice to get a lot of this stuff done early and be able to cross it off my list.

Let’s see if I hold myself to it. Thank you everyone, for being what holds me accountable. I definitely feel a different sense of obligation with posting my plans for eating right and exercising online.
