Two Goals Down!
March 19, 2017
Starting weight on 1/01/2017: 356 lbs.
Last week's weight on 3/12/2017: 319.5 lbs.
This week's weight on 3/18/2017: 316.5 lbs.
I hit 2 goals this week, both of which were on the same day! On Saturday, I hit the 2-mile mark on the treadmill. I always use the "weight-loss" interval program on the treadmill, so it's always the same time. 36 minutes. 3 minutes warm up, 28 minutes of fast paced, and 5 minutes for cool down. I also hit the 40-pounds lost mark. Technically, it's 39.5 but hey, I was quite excited to see the 316 on the scale. Here's what the week looked like.
Monday morning: Thrive vanilla shake w/banana.
Workout: I'm not sure where my notes are. Ugh. Rest assure, I did work out.
Lunch: Deli turkey on gluten-free bread with lettuce and olive oil mayo, and a cup of mandarin oranges.
Dinner: Gluten-free pizza casserole. It's quite awesome!
Tuesday Morning: Thrive vanilla shake w/banana
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes - 1.59 miles - 328 calories burned.
Lunch: Same as Monday
Dinner: Same as Monday... leftover pizza casserole.
Wednesday Morning: Thrive chocolate shake
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes - 1.88 miles - 317.9 calories.
Post-Workout: A couple of egg white cups.
Lunch: Mason jar salad w/serving of Hidden Valley Ranch. I forgot to bring a side of deli meat, so I made due with just the salad. It worked.
Dinner: Deli roast beef with various veggies and soy sauce. Courtney has made this before and I love this dish! I'm not a big fan of Chinese food, but this really works for me for some reason!
Thursday Morning: Thrive chocolate shake w/scoop of PB2.
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes - 1.82 miles - 310 calories.
Post-Workout: Egg white cups.
Lunch: Mason jar salad w/Hidden Valley ranch and a side of deli shave ham.
Dinner: Leftover Chinese beef and veggies.
Evening: Serving of cashews.
Friday morning: Thrive chocolate shake w/scoop of PB2.
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes - 1.83 miles - 305 calories. No other notes available.
Lunch: Bag of shredded lettuce w/serving of Hidden Valley ranch and a side of deli ham.
Dinner: Gluten-free Louisiana pasta and chicken.
Evening: Half a can of Pepsi.
Saturday morning: Thrive chocolate shake w/scoop of PB2.
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes - 2.10 miles - 370 calories.
Dinner: We did a late afternoon dinner at Noble Roman's for their awesome gluten-free pizza.
Evening: We all had a hankering for a piece of obnoxiously good cheesecake from The Cheesecake Factory. I had a piece of peanut butter cheesecake. Super rich.
Sunday Morning: Thrive chocolate shake w/scoop of PB2.
Workout: Treadmill: 36 minutes - 1.94 miles - 340 calories.
Lunch: 3 slices of leftover gluten-free pizza.
Dinner: Taco salad, which consisted of lettuce, tomato, green peppers, taco sauce, hamburger, a bit of shredded cheddar cheese, and a couple of crumbled Doritos on top. Had 2 bowls.
Well, that's it for the week. A few tablespoons of the JIF Simply Life peanut butter were thrown in there too throughout the week, and of course I made sure to get in 120 ounces of water in every day. I splurged a bit this week with the Pepsi and slice of cheesecake, but with the time I'm putting into the gym, and obviously down 40 lbs., I think I'm ok. There were a couple of days I forgot my little notebook and wrote down notes on a scrap piece of paper. Obviously that was a bad idea. I want to be able to look back to see how my workouts are improving. All and all, it was a good week, and I'm happy with the results.
Thanks for reading, and have a great week!
