Fit Girl Friday: Week Six Update

Weekly Weigh in: -5 lbs. (11.6 more lbs. to go!)

This week, based on my "official" weigh in two weeks ago, I lost a little more than 3 lbs! I started the Fit Girl's Guide 28 Day Jumpstart this Monday with my sisters, and of course, I wasn't able to follow it to a tee because I am a rebel. LOL.

Breakfast for the week: Berry Pie Fridge Oats (contains: berries, vanilla flavored Greek yogurt, honey, chia seeds, almond milk, oats)
Lunch for the week: Tofu & Veggie Power Bowl

Lunch for the week: Tofu & Veggie Power Bowl (contains: tofu, brown rice, broccoli, carrots, chickpeas, soybeans, red beans, kale)

Dinner Choice #1: Sweet Potato Street Tacos (contains: sweet potatoes, mushrooms, onions, spinach, avocado)

Dinner Choice # 2: Pita Pizza Party (contains: red bell peppers, mushrooms, spinach)

In all seriousness, I did try very hard to stick to the diet except for Tuesday and last night. Tuesday, I had a management meeting to attend... at a diner! I still tried to be good though. I could have ordered a Reuben, but stuck to eggs instead. Last night, I had dinner pretty late so I didn't have time to prep. I just ate whatever was in the kitchen, ready to be eaten. LOL.

As far, as the physical part of the challenge, I was good day one, but didn't do so well after. The weather didn't really permit bike riding this week, and not to make excuses, but I am physically, mentally, and emotionally spent after a day at work so working out is usually not something I want to do as soon as I get home... unfortunately.

While I didn't do too bad this week, I hope to do better next week. I feel so motivated, although a bit hungry... Hahaha! At this rate, I may reach my goal weight in just two to three more weeks! It will definitely be a challenge this weekend since we will be celebrating Father's Day two days in a row! I need to keep my self control in check. LOL.

Wish me more luck!

Fit Girl Friday: Week Five Update

Weekly Weigh in: ???

I forgot to weigh myself this morning. We had a funeral to go to, so it was the last thing on my mind. If I were to guess, I probably gained weight. I did weigh myself Wednesday, but it was in the evening, after a whole day of eating and drinking. I usually weigh myself in the morning, soon after waking up and peeing. Because of this, I don't think that my weigh in that evening was accurate. I probably want to believe that because according to the scale, I gained pretty much all the weight I lost so far. LOL. If I were being honest, that's not at all surprising since this whole week my mind has been preoccupied by a lot of other things, and losing weight was the farthest thing on my mind. I didn't get to bike much, and I didn't really watch what I ate.

But no point in beating myself up over this; Time to get back on the horse. LOL. This Monday, my sisters and I will be starting the Fit Girl's Guide 28 Day Jumpstart. We'll do the grocery shopping, and start the meal prep Sunday.

Wish us luck, and don't forget to check out Phoebe's blog to check her progress! (We're still trying to get our other sister to make a blog.)

Fit Girl Friday: Week Four Update

Weekly Weigh in: -1.8 lbs. (14.8 more lbs. to go!)

That was surprising... Not because I haven't lost any weight since my last weigh in two weeks ago, but because I didn't gain any considering the last last two weeks I have had. As mentioned in my last post, I had been eating a lot of "junk" (take out, microwable stuff, fast food) because the kitchen was out of commission two weeks ago. This past week wasn't any better. What made it worse was the fact that we were supposed to start the the Fit Girl's Guide 28 Day Jumpstart this week!

Saturday was my friend's birthday celebration at Smorgasburg in Brooklyn, which meant pigging out. Good food paired with no self control is no bueno. LOL. Sunday was also spent pigging out, and being inactive, which I'll elaborate more later. The last few days, we celebrated my mom and the hubster's birthdays, which also equaled to eating a lot, and eating a lot of cake.

That's okay, as long as I exercise and work off all those calories, right? Right. But I didn't. LOL. The first few days of the week had been raining, so no biking for me. I didn't get a chance to ride until Wednesday night, and I only did 5.3 miles! That wasn't by choice. It started to get dark, and since I do not have headlights on my bike yet, I can't ride when it's dark. Yesterday was the same thing... only 3.3 miles because it started to get dark.

Again, it was a surprise that I didn't gain any weight. I'm happy that I didn't, I was just surprised. I was almost afraid to go on the scale. LOL. I guess my metabolism is starting to speed up. :)

Back to Sunday... We planned on going biking on a local bike trail, but it was raining all day. Not that it mattered anyway since my body shut down. No, I wasn't hungover. LOL. I guess it's due to all of the physical work put in fixing the kitchen, not sleeping until 5 am, and not to mention, my full time job. I pretty much slept the whole day and the better part of the evening, waking up a few times just to eat unhealthy food (A.K.A chocolates, chips, and ice cream.) This happens once in awhile where I just cannot physically function. I don't like it, but I understand that my body needs it. Does this happen to anyone else? Just me, the weird one, then?

How has your week been? Any luck with losing weight, and/or being healthy?

Fit Girl Friday: Week Three Update

Weekly Weigh in: ???

I forgot to weigh myself this morning, which I am somewhat relieved about. I was afraid of what the scale was going to say since this past week had not been good fitness-wise. We are currently fixing up the kitchen, (painting, cleaning, purging), and we also got a new stove, which was inaccessible for the first couple of days because we had to update our gas line. Even after that was fixed, it was still pretty hard to properly cook because the whole kitchen was not in a condition in which meal prep would be easy. We ate a lot of take out and microwavable stuff- not healthy.

Exercising A.K.A. biking was also out of the question. Even though I was off work for most of the week, my waking hours were spent in that kitchen. Wait... scrubbing and painting is a form of workout, right? I guess it wasn't a total loss... I did somewhat meet my physical activity quota. LOL. Plus, I did ride my bike last Friday afternoon, and according to Map My Ride, I did almost 8 miles! Whoo Hoo! I can't wait to ride again. Hopefully, I'll be able to sometime this weekend.

Pammy Had a Little Lamb...

Last night, we decided to get Planet Wings for dinner. I was excited because I wanted to get the beef gyro. All was going well, until I ordered, and the guy said, "One more beef and lamb gyro?"

Okay, anyone who knows me knows I only eat two types of meat- pork and beef. I eat pretty much any seafood, except for shrimp since I'm allergic to them. I do not eat any type of poultry. Yes, that includes chicken... And I most certainly do not eat goat or lamb.

"No, I want just the BEEF gyro please."

"Yes, it's BEEF... but with a little lamb in it."

Whaaaaaaat??? I told the guy that I wish he had never told me that. He insisted that the gyro is good. I told him that I knew that, I've had it plenty of times before, I just wish he didn't tell me it had lamb in it. He was totally messing with my psyche. It was like getting Christmas gifts from Santa Claus while knowing he isn't real. Getting the present from "Santa" (the gyro) is still good, but the magic (my love/craving for it) is not there anymore.

I still ended up ordering it because I didn't know what else to order, plus, I knew it tasted good. I thought maybe... just maybe... this time... it wouldn't matter that it had a little lamb in it. I couldn't even finish half of it! In the past, one was never enough. I always wanted more. I thought I couldn't finish it because my stomach had somehow shrunk from "dieting" and exercising. I didn't think much more of it last night... until a half hour ago.

I decided to eat the left over for lunch. It was a struggle. I had to mentally psych myself to bite in to it. I just kept reminding myself how much I love the white Tahini sauce. I did finish it, but I was pretty much gagging with each bite. I'm still gagging as I'm writing this.

Does this mean beef gyros and I are breaking up? As good as the Planet Wings' "beef" gyros taste, we still need to break up. But I honestly do not know if that's the end of all beef gyros for me. I guess as long as they don't have any lamb in them, they might still be okay. There's a local diner that serves beef gyros, which I usually get when I am there for work meetings. I guess I won't know until I'm back there.

UGH! I need something to wash this down. Thank goodness the Pheebster is making waffles!
