What a great start to my 18 Pounds in 18 Weeks challenge!
Today was WI and I lost 3.4 lbs.
That's a total of 86.6 pounds I've lost so far. And I got another 5-pound gold start at WW this morning. Haven't gotten one of those in months.
I worked hard for it too! I earned 26 activity points (biked for a total of 15 miles (outside) and walked for a total of 6 miles—again, outside). I didn't exercise the 5 days that I wanted to. Only did 4 days. But Friday was a tough one because I only had 4 hours of sleep and, though I felt fine when I woke up, I didn't want to push it and stress my body out too much. Next week I'm sure I won't have a problem doing the 5 days.
I have to say this challenge is going great. Of course I would say that because I had a great loss. But by me blogging about it and writing my goals down so I can refer to them on a regular basis, it really is helping. It was a little shaky half way through the week. I was up 2 lbs since last Sat's WI, but it came off on Thurs and Fri and then a little more this morning. That just goes to prove that persistence pays off, right?
I found a wonderful cereal that I started eating yesterday. It's made by Kashi, called Go Lean. It has 12 grams of protein and 10 grams of fiber in just one cup, which is 40% of your daily fiber allowance and 20% of your daily protein allowance. I put a half cup of soy milk in it so that added another 3.5 grams of protein and a half a gram of fiber. The whole thing was only 3 points. What a great filling breakfast.
I have to keep this one short. We're getting ready to go out and fly planes and I still have to get ready. I'll update my stats later today.
