Macro Diet, Week 2
It’s Monday morning which means - WEIGH IN! Week one, I lost 3.6 pounds. Week two, I lost 0.5 pounds.
This pretty much crushed me. I upped my cardio this week and I lost less weight. My body is a mystery. I stuck to my Macros.
I’m trying to focus on the positive - I’m only two weeks into this thing. I made a commitment for 12 weeks, and now it seems like it’ll be three months of disappointments. Which makes me want to binge out so badly on brunch foods but I’m thankful I have a positive distraction this morning - I’m having a brother/sister date of kayaking.
I get to meal prep today and I’ll make sure I hit the gym tonight and remember that I need to not be so hard on myself. I am NOT just fat - I have fat and that fat doesn’t determine my value. My weight does not define me.
Macro diet, Day 12
It’s been a weird week.
I have not been eating much. Not sure if it’s because I’ve been extremely stressed this week with work and my dog having a health scare - but I’ve missed two days of cross training due to work schedule and me coming home and instantly falling asleep on the couch, waking up at midnight. I really hate that.
I’m looking forward for three days away from the clinic - I have a brother/sister kayak date on Monday (Labor Day), which I’m looking forward to. I want to have a big cardio day on Sunday - like I did last week; probably another hike.
I’m still struggling with finding high protein foods that are low in fat (besides synthetic proteins). I eat chicken and steak but those are FULL of fat. Chicken breast is 25g of Protein but 13g of fat per 100g (a piece of chicken the size of a deck of cards, roughly). Steak is worse.
I broke down and had a bowl of cereal this morning; first time in over two weeks and it was fucking heaven. HEAVEN!!!
I’m looking forward to weigh-in Monday and see if I can continue this weight loss on week #2.
Keep you posted…
Macro Diet, day 9
OMG, I’m fucking hungry.
I have been hungry all day.
I’m not sure what the cause is, maybe:
1 - my period?
2 - because it’s Farmer’s Market day at work and everything smells and looks amazing?
3 - Because I’m stressed out?
The good thing is I was sent this GIF of what to do when you want to binge:
So I’m drinking water and writing this blog entry.
I’m about to inhale my DELICIOUS lunch of almond baked chicken, spicy mayo with celery and pineapples.
I’m going to hit up cross training tonight to keep on this amazing fitness journey of losing these dreaded lbs and reaching my goal of running a half marathon (again) and getting back into the Spartan/Warrior dashes!
