So today marked the start of week 2. So this morning I hopped on the scale first thing to see the results from my first week. Drum roll please……………..
The scale said 174!! If you recall last week I was 179.5, so that means I’ve lost 5.5lbs!!!
I jetted home for a quick lunch! I had a serving of steamed broccoli, 1 c cantaloupe, 1/2 cottage cheese, and a toasted ham & swiss sandwich. I ended up only eating 1/2 of the sandwich because I burnt (woops!) it pretty good, so my lunch totaled 4 points.
Since I didn’t finish my sandwich I counted out 15 animal crackers to snack on throughout the afternoon for 2 points to help tide me over till supper.
I spent the majority of my afternoon in a little conference room with 3 other people. Not too fun, but we got lots done! I did have 3 twizzlers for 2 points during the meeting. Afterwards I put in some extra time in my office to get some things done and came home around 6:30pm.
Once I got home I threw supper together quick and put it in the oven. I had 45 minutes while it baked to get a run in! I ended up running 3.5 miles in 40 minutes. Whew! I was wore out by the end, that heat is rough!
