28 Day Jumpstart challenge – week 3

Whew – Halfway through the challenge and for the most part going strong. I had a minor setback this weekend – chalk it up to hormones and we’ll move on, but even with that I’m feeling really good about my progress and what’s ahead.

Here’s the week in review:

Sunday night prep – well as stated last week I got a slow start and ended up making a salad at whole foods on Monday – usually Sunday’s are our recuperate days and it’s been hard to get out of that mode.

Monday- back on track with Lasagna roll ups for dinner – they were very tasty and filling and I’m proud of myself I made it through the pushups today without taking a rest. (they’re still girl pushups but it’s a start)

Tuesday – I had a meeting so I ended up having my 2nd day of roll ups – still tasty and worked out a little late in the evening – but I still worked out – Yay me!

Wednesday – well today I answered the question of do I really like Polenta? The answer is…..ehhhh. I’ve eaten better thing in my life, but, it’s better than Hummus. I also decided whole wheat English Muffins area really heavy so I decided to finish out the week with whole wheat toast for my breakfast.

Thursday – totally running late and didn’t have time to cook my egg or toast at home…..no worries grabbed a slice of whole wheat toast and a scrambled egg with just a smidgen of cheese from the cafeteria – Score!

Friday – I really felt like I was on a roll, I stayed home but managed to get all of my exercise and weight training done early – had a modified lunch and although the hubby and I ate out for dinner I still had a chicken salad and stayed on track.

Saturday/Sunday – well as I said the weekend was hard – we ate out again on Saturday night – Pasta – I ate healthy but still managed to feel really bloated, then yesterday I got a craving for a cheeseburger and gave into temptation. Ah well – I figure once out of two weeks of really awful eating I can afford it – as long as it’s not a habit and I’m willing to “pay for it”. Needless to say we didn’t make it to the grocery store yesterday either so…… I went for a standard of fruit, greek yogurt and granola for breakfast, and a lovely greek salad for lunch – with a lighter vinaigrette instead of the traditional greek dressing.

So How do I feel? Well I will say a little heavy and sludgy today – but after the weekend that’s to be expected – on the upside I had no problem getting back into healthy eating habits today and I’m looking forward to a long walk with the pups and a workout tonight after shopping.

I still haven’t weighed myself – but that will come this week. My clothes feel like they fit better and based on my measurements – I’ve lost about a 1/2 inch everywhere except my hips and my waist (darn it) I’m hoping that will reflect well on the scale.

Now on to Week 3

The food looks really yummy this week, at this time I have no interest in subbing anything major, (I’m not a fan of Tahini dressing, so vinaigrette it is) other than that I’ll let you know if anything else changes

Again exercise is much of the same just adding of reps
