Last Week's Weight - 221.3
Current Weight - 216.0
Weight Lost This Week - 5.3
Well that is a loss I can get used to! I don't think I've ever lost 5 pounds in one week before.
This was a great week overall. I exercised every day for at least 30 minutes, using the BeachBody videos that came with my 21 day Fix package. I've never really been a fan of workout videos, but I have enjoyed these ones. It helps that they are only 30 minutes long, give you frequent 15-30 second breaks and offer modified versions of each exercise if you can't keep up.
I also had the Shakeology shake every morning for breakfast. It truly filled me up, helping me keep my overall calories each day between 1300-1700, lower then I've been able to get on my own. Even with the low calories I wasn't hungry. And even better, I didn't have any cravings all week. Often when I get Liam a snack of cheese or pretzels, I'll help myself to a few bites. But not this week, it just didn't seem interesting to me and I was already satisfied with what I had eaten. I even made it through Saturday and Sunday at home without any snacking.
I've committed to sticking with the shakes and workouts for 21 days, so 2 more weeks to go. I had set a slightly random goal of wanting to lose 15 pounds during the 21 days, something that I thought would be great to strive for, but didn't really believe I would be able to do it. After all, the most I've ever lost in a week before was 2 pounds. But after this mornings weigh in, I believe it might just be possible.
