Week One Weigh-In:
09/22/2016: -0.8 pounds
Total lost: 31.4 pounds
Current Weight: 198.6 pounds
Okay, so the scale actually went down by almost a pound. This is a good beginning. I was hoping for more but I need to remember that everything takes time and that my muscles are retaining water from starting a new, tough strength training workout.
I did well with food this week. I had two off days but the rest were tracked carefully and I ended keeping my carbs at about 102 grams a day (less for net). I also ate healthier and more homemade foods.
I'm going to keep going with the same food plan for this coming week and see what happens with the scale. I can always go lower on carbs if I have too but I'm really enjoying things like blueberries and sweet potatoes (and am really craving some watermelon) so unless the scale starts to go up again I'm going to keep going with this moderate/upper level of "low carb."
I am also loving being back at the gym and an actually looking forward to tomorrow's leg day (well, except for the lunges, I'm not looking forward to those lol).
And my 5K is in just over a week. Am I ready? Not at all but all I can do is push myself and do my best.
