Observations and Notes:

  • Last Sunday and Tuesday I had binge eating fits and you can see it in the early numbers of this weeks. I started day 8 at 147.7lb. even though on day 7, I was pretty much a full pound lighter at 146.8lb. This is something I want to talk about! For all of you out there trying to lose weight, its normal to fluctuate from day-to-day this is one of the reason I don’t encourage you to weight yourself everyday like I’m doing. Your weight fluctuates so much based on what you ate the day before, are you bloated, are you pre-menstrual or menstrual, have you gone to the toilet, the time of day you weight yourself, I could continue to name factors all morning long. Weighing yourself at the same time once every 2 weeks will help you stay on track without having to see the numbers ping-pong up and down everyday.
  • The issue I believed I had with persimmons last week is pretty much confirmed; this makes me sad; but such is life when your body is so sensitive to food.
  • I have been mixing up the shake ingredients this week. I already knew I loved blueberries or strawberries with the chocolate SunWarriorprotein powder. This week I tried cherries I think I have a new favorite combo! President Choice sells these amazing frozen cherries that are perfect for tossing into your shakes.
  • I was sick Wednesday to Friday. This caused my to take a break from training and well slept for most of the day with the exception of having to get up and parent the kiddo. I also skipped my vitamins on those days as it was painful to swallow anything that was not liquide. Weekends are rest days for me so all in all I had a pretty inactive week. I really look forward to kick starting my week on Monday with my abs/butt/leg routine and evening classes at Pole Inc.
  • On day 13 I attended one of the most beautiful weddings I have been to in a long time congratulations to my amazing friends Sam & Roel and the lovely kiddo for tying the knot and making their family official on paper. This was a beautiful celebration of their love that we all knew was strong and amazing. However I cheated on my diet, as most people do at celebrations, and ate not one but probably 3-4 items from my food intolerance list. By Sunday night my ankles where sensitive, I was bloated and congestion was setting in; however that wedding cake made it all worth it!
  • So on day 14 I am now down 6lb. from when I started on day 1 at 151.2lb. This week I dropped 1.6lb this seems like a much more reasonable number as one should not lose weight to fast as it’s not healthy.
