And so the journey begins... Part 3
February 19, 2017
Starting weight on 1/1/17: 356 lbs.
Current weight on 2/19/17: 324.5 lbs.
Down 31.5 pounds since the start of the new year! I have a bad habit of jumping on the scale every single day. This is something you're not supposed to do. I know better than that, yet still do it for some reason. After doing well last week, I feel like I hit a wall this week. By the time Saturday rolled around though, I was down 3.5 lbs, so I'll take it. Take a look at the journey this week:
Monday morning: Thrive vanilla shake with a banana
Tuesday was the exact same thing from top to bottom, with the exception of having a half a bag of Sriracha cashews.
Wednesday morning: Thrive chocolate shake
Thursday was the exact same thing as Wednesday. The exception is, I didn't snack in the middle of the night. I did polish off those Sriracha cashews earlier in the evening.
Friday morning: Thrive chocolate shake
Saturday morning: Thrive chocolate shake
After sitting at home a bit, I made a decision. Time to get off my butt and hit the gym. I became a member of Peak Performance in Indianapolis several months ago because I get a tremendous discount through work. Walking at a fast pace, I put in 3 miles on the treadmill in just under an hour, and followed up with a bit of chest and shoulder excercises.
Lunch: Holy cow! I was starving by the time I got back home. A small salad with shredded carrots, a few grape tomatoes, and a serving of ranch cured that!
Dinner: We celebrated our Valentine's Day with a nice dinner at Harry & Izzy's. I had the shrimp cocktail for an app. That cocktail sauce is FIRE and a heck of a way to clear out your sinuses!!! I skipped the bread, and had a great 14oz New York Strip done Izzy-style (rolled in peppercorn w/brandy butter sauce), and a side of green beans and sauteed mushrooms. What a great meal!
Sunday morning: Thrive vanilla shake w/a tablespoon of PB2
So the end result is down a couple of pounds since last week. I found a beginner's workout program that I'm going to start attempting tomorrow before work, so wish me luck! By the way, when I mention what I ate this week, I'm not saying "Hey look, I can screw up and still lose weight!" Nope. I'm not saying that all. I'm simply showing all of you that yeah, I still slip up here and there. I don't recommend it, but I'm being honest. I don't want everything to think that I'm eating perfectly, because I'm not. I hope to get better about it as the weeks go on. I can say though that I didn't have a Pepsi this week. I haven't had one in about a week and a half. Woo-hoo!
Thanks for reading and I hope you all have a blessed week! By the way, if you're curious as to what the Thrive program is that I start each and every day out with, feel free to check out jcparsons.le-vel.com! If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask!
