And here we are again! Another week gone. It feels like Mother Nature decided that it was time to flip the switch to Fall — we went from high 90’s and a bazillion percent humidity, to highs in the 60’s. I’m ready for it, though I wish that winter wasn’t close behind.
Overall, this week has been a mix of easy and difficult. Getting the protein in requires planning but not much thought, but the lessons towards the end of the week that started in on what kinds of food should be in the house really brought about a lot of resistance. And – I’m still struggling with that.
Here’s the round-up:
The scale continues to be a finicky shrew, but at least it’s nudging ever-so-slightly in the downward direction. I am continuing to see some good progress on measurements, though, which I like more than results on the scale. I have an entire wardrobe that depend on me dropping a size or two!
|And this is exactly what I look like when I do side planks…
except add sweat and nothing but a look of torture on my face
Still 100% compliance on this! I’m starting to lift heavier, and I love the feeling of empowerment that gives me. And I’m starting to see my quads start to reappear! Woot! Next week the workouts get longer as more sets are added. I’ll tell ya one thing, the 45″ of side planks are going to kill me one of these days.
Lean protein. Not much to say about it other than I continue to have to work at getting some in with each meal rather than just hitting an x grams of protein per day goal. Like the rest of the habits, just being cognizant of the habit is a success in and of itself.
Weeks 1-2: Fish oil and probiotic
Weeks 3-4: Eating slowly
Weeks 5-6: Stop eating at 80% full
Weeks 7-8: Lean protein with every meal
