I haven’t been posting here much since I joined MFP, but thought I’d let you all know that I’m down 8lbs in the last 30 days.
Clearly I’m back to doing it right :)
Tonight dinner, featuring all the protein,
Some food from the last few days!
Felt all strong and awesome this morning, so I did Hip Hop Abs for the first time. Didn’t feel sweaty enough after though, so I followed it up with a run.
I am now exhausted and ready for all the food.
Breakfast and lunch. So good, so healthy and all the nutrients.
Homemade zucchini muffins (check my page for the recipe), raspberries, key lime Greek yogurt and a cup of tea for breakfast.
Sweet potato, baked asparagus in olive oil and seasoning, shrimp scampi, which I used the butter/garlic from to dump on my potato.
Last night splurge dinner was totally worth it. About 550 calories of perfection. Shrimp sautéed in garlic and margarine, 2.5oz of steak, a bit of mashed potatoes and gravy, baked asparagus with a little olive oil and seasoning.
The easiest lunches are always the best.
I’ve been beating myself up lately for putting back on 7-10lbs that I had lost over the past two years. But really, it’s hard to beat yourself up when I look back and start to see differences like these.
First off, at around 235lbs (I literally started avoiding the scale when I broke 225 but I know I put on at least 10lbs more) I wouldn’t have been caught dead in a bikini, I was uncomfortable in my own skin, and I felt so unattractive, even with a significant other at the time. The picture of me in the green is after I’ve lost a little, probably around 215.
And then the bikini picture is me today. I weighed in at 175.4lbs this morning and was insanely thrilled because I finally feel back on track. I’m running every morning again and posting faster times and longer distances than before; I’m eating better and I just feel a billion times better in terms of everything: health, my confidence, etc.
So when it comes down to it, this is my before and during set, because I’ve still got 25.4lbs to go until my goal. But I’m not sweating it. Cause I’m happy, I’m healthy at just shy of 60lbs below my starting weight, and let’s be honest, I look pretty good in a bikini for 175 ;) hahah
It looked so pretty pre-spinach haha.
Strawberry, peach and cauliflower smoothie with spinach for some extra nutrients.
