So French toast. Flippin’ amazing, right? Right. But you’re ready to overhaul your eating habits and you don’t want to give up the goods. Not a problem! Nutrisystem has an amazing French Toast that I am in LOVE with.
ERMAHGERD, y’all. This bad boy in a toaster, with a little drizzle of sugar free syrup? I die. It’s amazingly light, fluffy, and sweet! I always get super excited when a shipment of frozen food arrives because I so look forward to these!
Mixing up my workouts
I posted earlier this week about adding in some strength training and Pilates into my workout line up. It’s been anything but easy! I hurt in places I never knew could hurt! Pilates is no joke, man. It’s both encouraging to know that I’m getting through these workouts, but also a little discouraging because I struggle with it. But I suppose the stuff that hurts, burns, and makes you sweat is the stuff that works!
I think my goals for next week are to work out 5 days a week again, and for at least 3 of those workouts to be either Pilates or my Ripped in 30 DVD. It’s so difficult to find the time to get exercise in, but I definitely notice a difference in how I feel (and how much I weigh!) when I’m unable to fit it in. I know now that I will never FIND the time. I must MAKE the time!
So here’s some pretty exciting news! I took my measurements on July 20, and I finally got around to measuring myself again! Want to know how many inches I lost? It’s kind of insane.
So y’all. That’s 17.5 inches GONE! That’s crazy talk.
I also dug out my Nebraska shirt (Go Big Red!) because it’s football season again! Want to see what I used to look like, and what I look like now? Sure you do!
My clothes just fit so much better, and I am infinitely more comfortable in my skin. I distinctly remember posing for the photo on the left, thinking to myself, “Oh man, she’s totally going to take a full body shot,” and cringing inside. Now, I am known to routinely pose in front of my full length mirrors.
The Weigh In
I weighed in at 186 pounds even (a .8 pound loss for the week), making my loss 21.4 pounds! That’s a HUGE milestone, because that means I’ve officially lost over 10% of my starting body weight! Whaaat?! It might seem like a bummer of a week with a little loss, but I’ve been preparing myself for a slow down, and with all of these non-scale victories, I’m still super pumped up and ready to keep losing!
Andrew weighed in with a loss of 3 pounds this week, bringing his total loss to 23 pounds! YES! His clothes are fitting him in a completely new way, and he’s lookin’ pretty good!
