I really wish I had more time to write during the week, but life gets in the way (and I’m ok with that:).
This week I had a cold that hit me pretty suddenly and has had a pretty intense cough (like coughing until I’m dry heaving, yuck). I did a lot of resting and drank two Kombucha’s a day to get my immune system to push the cold bugs out.
I still have some lingering mucus, but the cough is almost gone and I should be 100% by the end of the weekend.
This did have a bit of an effect on my weight, but I’m happy to say I still had a great loss!
I was actually lower in the beginning week, but I made a stuffed chicken on Wednesday that had bacon in it and the sodium has helped me to retain a lot of water and mother nature visited me this week so it looks like I have a couple of things working against me. Although, the chicken and bacon was worth it:)
This is a “stuffed” chicken, although I can’t butterfly chicken worth beans so I just put the stuffing on top. I may have eaten a few pieces of bacon on the side as well. Anyone else feel like bacon has a crack-like addiction to it? Note to self: Don’t buy bacon again.
I also got 2 dozen fresh eggs straight from the chicken this week. The egg yolks are almost orange! Love me some country living!
I may have eaten a little too much of the fresh ground almond butter that Sprouts sells. It tastes amazing if you spread it on bananas or apples.
But all-in-all in a was a good week!
Starting Weight (3.1.14): 287.7
Last week’s weight: 275.4
This week’s weight: 273.7
Total weeks loss: -1.7
Total overall loss: -14
I need to tighten it up a little this next week (as in, only one serving of almond butter a day).
Non-scale victory: I went to a birthday party last weekend and I stuck to my new way of eating. I passed up lots of sweets and birthday cake! It wasn’t even a challenge. I just kept telling myself that I would feel like crap if I ate it, and that seemed to work!
Upcoming fun: I bought a yogurt maker on Amazon and I am excited to play around with it! But I probably won’t until the end of the month. I’m interested in trying to make yogurt with different kinds of milks (like almond, coconut), since dairy doesn’t agree with me. And my kids are yogurt fiends and so it will be nice to save a little money by making it myself.
Have a great weekend!
