Weight Loss Wednesday; Week 3 Recap

Well, it happened. When I weighed in this week I was up 1 pound.

I definitely expected it though, I went out Friday night with my co-workers and then we had a family birthday party on Saturday. I made better choices than I would have (halibut and roasted vegetable instead of fish and chips) but I still had cheese cake Friday, black forest cake Saturday, and multiple alcoholic beverages both nights.

I struggled a bit on Sunday to get myself back on track, but I managed. So far Monday and Tuesday have been good days in terms of eating. I really need to get some exercise into my weekly routine, but I'm having a hard time with that. I did have a ringette game Monday night and another one tonight so that will definitely help in the exercise category.

One of the things I've been finding lately is that I'm not being fussy about what I eat. If it's within my points, I'll eat it. But I'm not making sure I'm getting enough water, and I'm definitely not eating enough vegetables. This journey needs to be about more than getting "skinny," I want to get healthy too.

So I set myself three goals for this week, including eat more vegetables. I'm definitely doing better with veggies so far this week, I bought a big bag of sugar snap peas at Costco and I've been having them with my lunch. I also had salad with my supper last night, even though Jonathan (my husband) decided to just have a burger and fries. And I started putting spinach back in my morning smoothies. It's only been two days though, so I'm not going to celebrate just yet. :-)

  1. One pound is nothing to bet yourself up over! You could just have been a tad bloated! But yes always sucks when you're up but you're doing good so keep trucking! I need to get more veggies too! I'm good on my water now but more veggies! I have a hydration tracker in my planner now so it is fun to tick off days haha!
