Week Two Weigh-In:
10/15/2015: -1.8 pound
Total lost: 13 pounds
Current Weight: 217 pounds
Yes! Down another 1.8 pounds! That's a total of 4.8 pounds since I started low-carb 13 days ago!
This week has gone much better with cravings. I actually only had one serious evening of cravings and I held out and talked myself through it (with a little help from my friends online and off). I also made it to the gym once this week and worked out at home once (planning more for today).
Unfortunately with the weather changes taking places my head has started hurting again and my joints have started acting up as well, with my right knee going out on Tuesday. The knee is okay now but the joints in my hands and fingers feel like they have needles going through them which makes working out somewhat difficult. I'm still working on the plank but it's slow going and only at 12-15 seconds right now.
I'm getting used to planning low carb meals and I feel like I'm pretty well prepared for this coming week. Charles and I are going on a late-ish anniversary trip this Saturday and will be eating out so we'll see what happens then but I'm definitely planning to go easy on the carbs, even when celebrating. I'm allowing myself to open that day up a bit in terms of macros but not go crazy with it at the same time.
I have been able to up my protein like I wanted but I definitely need to plan ahead for that. I've actually been doing a lot of planning and a lot of moving foods around in My Fitness Pal as well as adding and subtracting foods from meals to get the right ratio of macros before I eat. I'm not obsessing with it but if I want to see results and do this right I need to plan and plan and plan some more.
I definitely did not do 4 gym sessions like I wanted but I'm not about to give up on that goal and I'm working on the plank every day, whether or not I'm in the gym.
I'm putting off progress pics for now and will take new ones (except the stuff that goes on my Instagram) when I hit a 20 pound loss. Also, I'm sure Charles and I will take some pics on Saturday.
So the plan for this coming week is to continue what I'm doing and add in more exercise, more water and more veggies. And keep working on that plank!
