Hello folks! Thank you for checking out the progress of my healthy eating life-style. I am pretty sure my weigh scales are broken, because I barely lost one pound. I was so sure, I lost at least three. For those of you not caught up on my progress, I started at 150 pounds and now I am at 136. I expected to be 130 pounds by now, but that’s okay, all in good time.
Here’s what I changed this week and why I thought my weight loss would be better.
- I increased my water in-take from 2 bottles to 3 – 4. I did what I started to do way back on Jan 1, 2018. I guzzled a bottle of water before I had my first cup of tea every morning. I am not a coffee drinker. Plus, in-between every cup of tea I made sure I drank one bottle of water before I allowed myself more tea. Not only did it increase my water in-take, it cut back on the tea I was drinking. Tea in itself is not fattening but I add, 1/3 cup of skim milk. Geeze that sounds gross as I’m typing it. That equals 30 calories per cut of tea.
- I increased the latin dancersize to five times this week. Three of which are 45 min and two are 20 min on the in-between days.
- I stopped buying soda crackers to snack on. I was eating a lot of them and they are filled with sodium, sugar and lots of stuff I don’t need.
- I started taking the Omega 3,6,9 and iron pills so I don’t become anemic again.
As I have said before, muscle does weigh more than fat, so I guess that is why the scales only show one pound of weight-loss. I’ll just have to get over it.
The next thing I have to do is stop eating so late at night. You don’t burn off any calories while you sleep. This week I am going to try not to eat anything after 7 pm. That is going to be difficult. I hate hunger pangs. I guess I will just have to think of the pangs as fat pulling away from my body and going to trash.
All in all, my tummy is going down. The ole back fat is going slowly but surely. I’m doing okay. I’m pretty sure if I stopped doing the dancersize, the scales would show more weight loss but then I would just be so flabby. I’ll keep dancing as best I can and lay off the night time snacks.
Well, I must run, I’m just kidding. I never run! I must hobble to renew my business license for downtown. It was due at the beginning of February, but I forgot to do it. Now they get to charge me a $50 late penalty fee. Grrrr, but it is my own fault.
I’m Frazzled Again.
