After four days of workouts (2 at the gym and 2 at home), a healthier, but not skimpy mealplan change, and a lot of willpower the results of my hard work are in...
Drumroll please (rat-a-tat-tat)
I am down 4.2 lbs!
The details of my week are below if you care to see how I made this possible.
breakfast: bowl of Special K with skim milk in it, banana, water to drink
snack: 100 calories (fruit or granola bar or cookies) water to drink
lunch: 6 inch turkey sub and white milk / 2 leftover taco wraps and water and ice cream with corn syrup / cheese omelet with two pieces toast and Coke / half can tomato soup made with skim milk and two pieces bread and Coke
snack (sometimes): piece of homemade pineapple carrot loaf / white cheddar popcorn / watermelon
dinner: 2 tacos and Coke / cod and green beans and a few spoonfuls of rice (not a rice fan) and water / steak kabobs with lots of roasting veggies and pineapple and water / dinner out: calamari and lighter portion of roast beef and mashed potatoes and Yorkshire pudding and gravy and roasted fresh veggies and Coke and apple crisp with ice cream (I went up in weight as a result of this dinner out)
Note to self: Not as successful as I intended with reducing the amount of Coke I drink. Have now finished all Coke in house and will not be purchasing it with groceries this week.
