This morning I weighed in at 145.2. Considering that we went out for breakfast yesterday and I ate three giant strawberry cheesecake pancakes that were amazing, I am pretty happy with that. I was 145.2 yesterday as well and I am trying very hard not to overeat again and shoot my weight back up to 147. I have been bouncing between 144 and and 147 the past three weeks. It seems that every time I get my weight back down, I have a few bad days in a row and my weight jumps up, which it then takes me three to four days to get it back down and by that time something has come up and I splurge again. So I am focusing on breaking that cycle now and getting my weight back down to 144 and then of course the next step is to break 144! Hopefully I can do that this next week. I'm still only going to update my weight tracker when I weigh in at a new weight.
Sunday is the hardest day of the week for me when it comes to nutrition. Ever since I started Sunday has been my free day and I am really trying to get my "free day" under control. Since my weight has dropped into my healthy weight range eating a lot of high calorie foods (such as making cookies and eating half of the cookie dough) has a larger effect on me and it stays with me for a longer period of time. I am trying to learn how to have a treat without going overboard. That has always been my weak spot. I will get a little bit of sugar and then just lose all control. So today, I have had a few cookies and a few small pieces of candy that I got at church (I was teaching the 5 year olds and my co teacher brought candy). Fortunately I had made dinner for tonight a few days ago when I did my first experiments in once a month cooking where I made three meals at one time. I'm planning on writing a blog post about that soon once I get it all put together. I made chicken wraps, chicken devon, and chicken enchiladas. Tonight we are having the Chicken Devon.
It's a broccoli, chicken curry dish. I put lots of broccoli in it, gives you an extra health boost. I was wanting to make popcorn with butter but since I already ate cookies and candy I decided to refrain. I don't exercise on Sundays (which doesn't help that Sunday has always been my free day because I don't work off any of the extra calories).
There are two more weeks left in the second month of my Turbo Fire challenge and I am dying to get below 144! I'm trying to get to 140 so I can take my next picture and update my weight loss photos page!
