Why did I lose weight THIS week? Probably because I had about 2000 less calories this weekend. Logging my food forced me to see what I'm eating and accept it. I didn't eat any (or much) less this weekend. I just made better choices.
Friday, BFF & I went out to dinner and we couldn't eat meat so we went for cheese pizza. The best choice? No, but it was delicious and we shared a salad and I had 1/2 the personal pizza. Instead of having ice cream after dinner, I had an individually packaged chocolate. So, I had a treat without going off the rails.
Saturday, I even had a doughnut for breakfast with my coffee...but I limited myself and logged it. For lunch, I had Chipotle and I limited myself on this as well. I ate chips, but I got a small portion and didn't even eat all of it. For dinner, I had the leftover pizza and another of the chocolates.
Sunday, I had a cheese omelet with potatoes for breakfast. The key was to avoid the carbs. I love me some french toast or biscuits. BFF & I had a show to attend, so I was able to keep from snacking all day. I did have some potato chips when I got home from the show, but again, I limited & logged them. For dinner, I made a steak and sweet potato. Delicious! I finished off the day with the last of the chocolates.
Obviously, I didn't starve myself, with the way I work out, I don't have to. BUT, I did keep things under control. Now let's see if I can string a couple of weeks together!!
I was supposed to meet Debi for a walk on Saturday, but the forecast was solid rain all day. So we had decided to meet at a mall. Friday I was not feeling well, so I begged off and we rescheduled for next weekend. I was worried that I would use it as an excuse for bad behavior, but as seen above, I didn't. YAY me! And I'm glad to say that I'm feeling much better today!
I mentioned that BFF & I went to a show. It was the world premiere of Fortress of Solitude which will move Off-Broadway later this year. We got the tickets as part of a sampler series, and I'm so glad we did. It was fantastic! The music was great, the story was nice and I was thoroughly entertained. I hope it finds success in NYC so I can say I saw it when...
Today's fitness plan: CrossFit (check!)
- 3 sets of 10 reps - Back Squat. No matter how much I work out on my own, there is no substitute for heavy lifting. I should have been able to squat 130# at least, and I was struggling a bit with 115#.
- 5 sets of 5 reps - Romanian Deadlifts - Should have been able to do at least 120# and I was at 105#. Got to build back the strength!
- Every :30 do one 25m shuttle run (total 50m) for 5:00. So a total of 10 sprints. Bleh, but I did it.
Breakfast - coffee with cream. Cheese & veggie fritatta. I actually put two big scoops of veggies in the food processor and then mixed them with the eggs. We will see how it turns out!
Lunch - meatloaf (courtesy of BFF) and sweet potato
Snack - roast beef and laughing cow
Dinner - Steak & veggie stir fry
