Since my goal is to lose 1.5 pounds a week I am not in much of a celebratory mood over this loss. Sure it is a loss and that being the bright side I should look to it. Much better than if I had gained 1/2 of a pound, no?
A little reflection of the past week, well my post on Friday summed fairly well up what I had done, good & bad. Bottom line, I have not been consistent enough this past week; the pat two weeks; and the scale reflects that.
Right after that weigh in I hit the forest preserve. Went to one I had not been to previously, Singing Hills...
Through it runs a trail which connects a number of preserves in the county called the Millennium Trail. I walked a segment of it which is 1.5 miles, and back, so I got in a 3 miles walk before breakfast. Felt good. I look forward to exploring more of this trail.
Today, eating has been spot on. Had some family over for lunch, grilled burgers. Burgers?? Yep, good old burgers. However knowing my weigh in a few hours prior I made smaller burgers than I otherwise would. Four months ago I would have made 1-pounders. Recently I have made 1/2-pounders. Today they were about 5-6 ouncers. I had no bun, and heaped salsa and onions on it versus sugary sauces. Also had a lettuce wedge with more salsa on it and a drizzle of blue cheese dressing for some decadence.
That is what I have done today. What is now important is what I do tomorrow and this coming week. I am still in a bit of a mood even though my choices today have been good ones. So as the evening gives way to night here I am going to ponder just what I need to affirm myself to in order to have a better week ahead.
