I like doing these weekly update posts to keep myself accountable on my self-imposed food rules. Because I know that it’s all too easy to just completely throw the rules out the window when “no one is watching.” So, as usual, I did great on my workouts for the week. On Friday, I had to get up super early to drive to Cincinnati for a mediation, so I didn’t do my workout in the morning like I ALWAYS do. In fact, I had contemplated just moving it to Saturday because I didn’t know what time I would get home Friday night. But, I got home right around 4:30, and I was pushing play on Friday Fight by 4:45! As much as I was dreading that workout, I was so glad I got it done. And, as I told my husband, it’s not called Saturday Fight!
So, how did I do on the food? Here goes:
-I got my 4 servings of protein each day. My greek yogurt and fruit has been my summer jam.
-I did a pretty good job watching my carbs. I definitely went overboard on Saturday, but did great the rest of the week.
-I had my one lunch meal out–sushi with a good friend who I hadn’t seen in awhile!
-We had one restaurant meal out–we took our bikes down to the Big Four bridge on Saturday night and then rode across to Big Four Burgers. I had a pretzel breadstick, half of my burger, fries, and I shared a chocolate milkshake with our daughter.
-I had two drinks on Saturday–one out at a local festival called Clifton Fest, and then one at dinner, so I stayed within my guidelines of no drinking at home.
This was the Gold Rush from The Silver Dollar (they had a bar set up at the festival). And yes, I know you love my “Bourbon Y’all” shirt. 🙂
-My treat for the week was that shared milkshake. YUM.
-Meal planning/prepping went great–we cooked stuff every night except for Saturday and tried some new recipes (I need to make a note to link to some of the good ones here).
-No frozen meals were had all week 🙂
So, I felt like I did really well…but the scale unfortunately did not agree. I’ve been tracking my calories and my food all week through my Fitbit app, and I have to say that I’m pretty disappointed with where I’m sitting right now, but that’s a different post for a different day.
I hope you all had a great week last week and a wonderful weekend!
