Biggest Loser Update: First weigh in today...down 6 lbs! My goal was to be past my plateau/impasse that has plagued me for so many years. I accomplished that goal today!!!! (Even with 2 b-day cookies and 2 trips to the hospital this week) I'm so happy!!! (happy dance!) I know I can do this!
Here is the "skinny" on what I learned about nutrition: Weight loss (for those trying to do this) is 80% nutrition. Sugar is bad! And to metabolize the fat, we need to eat more protein. She has us on protein shakes...and to tell you the truth, I just wasn't hungry after drinking 18 oz. of that stuff a day! My body is still adjusting to the change of eating that I have programmed it to do for the last 50 years. I believe the weight will drop off faster when it does adjust. My percentage of fat has gone down and I have been off sugar long enough, I don't crave it anymore! I have to be careful about eating when I'm bored...usually before or after dinner.
I'm having a birthday this Sunday! I'm not sure what to serve for b-day cake. One of my cute friends brought me a plate of my favorite...snickerdoodles! I put them in a Ziplock and hid them in my drawer. Maybe I should hide them in the freezer...less tempting if they are frozen! Yes, I'm going to have one every once in a while...it will be my punishment if I exercise too much or don't eat enough calories! Ha!
I'm trying to decide if I want to do a 5K next weekend. I have no doubt I can do it, the Utah weather is so unpredictable in April. I know you runner girls think nothing of a 5K, but hey, I just started, marathon mamas! (you're too awesome for me!) Maybe I think about a 10K, but then, maybe not. Running is not my thing (right now). I do like the way you feel after running up a hill or after a short, fast paced run. It's very invigorating!
Well this is a long enough post. Life might be hard, but it's good!
Love you guys!
