How’s It Going?
Pretty. Dang. Good. My “real” pants & shorts (the kind with zippers and buttons) have made a comeback. One pair is so loose I need a belt. Do I even own a belt anymore? Enquiring minds want to know! I may have to find one. A total of three pairs of pants and five pairs of shorts that are back in the rotation after sitting in the closet for over a year. It’s pretty cool!
Judging from my weigh-in, I’d say pretty much everything worked. After a month it’s becoming second nature. I haven’t had any real cravings to speak of, and dare I say that my sweet tooth has settled down a good bit. If I really have to have something, 3 of the tiny York Peppermint Patties seem to hit the spot.
We’re still rocking along with the Martha Stewart/Marley Spoon meal delivery service. I’m taking the time to run the meals through the WW app before I make my selections. All things are not equal, and things that I thought were on the healthy side really aren’t. (Beware of the added oils and butters!)
On the exercise front, we’re slowly amping up the walks/runs and we start tearing out carpet from the bedrooms this weekend. Not all workouts happen in the gym! I’m really looking forward to getting the weight equipment set up as well.
What Didn’t Work:
Surprisingly, things are pretty good on this front. We had our long-awaited Warhammer reunion over the weekend, minus a few players. I made turkey chili for the group and we had the left-overs for lunch this week. This weekend we’re getting together with our D&D group and have planned turkey tacos with grilled veggies. The rain has impacted a few of our scheduled group runs, but it’s easy enough to hop on the treadmill if that happens, and it’s not something I’m going to stress over.
The Plan for Next Week:
Keep on keepin’ on. Lots of chicken and turkey, and I’m planning on portobello mushroom burgers one night this week. Our group runs on Tuesday nights are coming to an end in a few weeks, but I’m sure we will continue on our own at the track.
