Week 4 - Day 22 - Lessons Learned In A New Life Style

Sunday, June 29, 2014

The good thing about keeping this fairly consistent blog is that I can see what is and is not working - I see what I am really putting into this thing and I see how I fail - last week despite the weight not coming off - I stayed pretty consistent with my eating habits and I ran even when I did not plan on it. The new baby took me right out of my routine and guess what? On Saturday I was only 1/2 pound off goal - I weighed in at 175.5 and I had wanted 175 when baby arrived! That was without the workouts but it was also without normal meals and there was no time for snacks. On Saturday hubby and I went out for dinner and I had pasta and bread and a drink - got on the scales this AM and was up 1 1/2 pounds again. So I am seeing some trends - I really do think my body needs a rest so I am not going to work out every day anymore and I am definitely not going to do Jillian and run every day - Week 4 will reflect some changes. Two weeks ago I found that I wanted to snack at night but if I had a glass of wine that helped me not to snack and it helped me to sleep better. When baby was coming there was no wine and I lost weight - yesterday I had one drink with the pasta dinner and I gained weight - so I am going to decrease the wine by 1/2 to see what happens. Also no bread (like last night) and no white pasta (like last night) at home I use black bean or wheat pasta. Hopefully these changes will be beneficial and I can post another loss next week - we shall see.

Challenges For Week 4

I understand the snack thing - I'm taking it off the list this week and adding something new
Only drink (usually wine) 2 x per week

Work out with Jillian - 3 times per week (not every day)
June 28

Run - jog - 3 times per week
June 29

One day do both -

One day rest - walking is OK

Bed before 10:30 - 4 times per week

More Protein than Carbs - 4 times per week
June 29

No snacks after dinner - 4 times per week (this one is still hard especially on weekends)
June 28

Number of challenges are increasing but my ability to meet them is increasing also. emoticon
