This week is going pretty good. I have tried to double my work outs this week in preparation for my weigh in, which was tonight. I’ve noticed I’ve gotten a little faster on the treadmill and increased the incline. I also added another cardio and more weight training. I was pushing for double digit weight loss this week, but I didn’t quite make it. I have lost inches. My pants are feeling looser, I’m not breathing as heavy after a workout and I’m sleeping much better at night.
For this week, I will be pushing it a little more than this past week. I’m shooting for a double digit weight loss for the next weigh in. We will see. I have not allowed the thought of giving in to temptation to enter my mind, I think that would set me back. I’m focused on eating right and getting creative with food. I have been blending frozen strawberries and fresh blueberries together with coconut milk when I get a craving for something sweet. The one thing I cannot do without is coffee. I can drink water, give up soda but the smell of coffee has me weak. I use a couple packs of low calorie sweetener and a small dash of powder creamer in my coffee now and it taste great. My goal is to stop using any artificial sugar at all but one step at a time.
