- HEALTH TRACKER
Tess, hope you and yours are safe thru the storm.
Checking in. Missing the Botts. Im down, depressed not on track at all. Still stressed. Missed a couple bootcamps and last night was the last one. I have checked in on the scale and Im the same. Good for now, but I dont want to pu**** I really wish I was one of those people who lost their appetite when they were in a funk.
Hoping to resolve some of my issues over the weekend and looking forward to feeling better and finding a new workout. I'll be traveling alot for work over the next two months, so I didnt sign up for the next bootcamp session.
Hope you all are staying bot.
Thanks for the info!! I really appreciate it.
Yes, I know the first week or two are the most agressive. Mostly water. But, Im happy now, knowing that what I lose from here should be real loss.
I did add more carbs right before hitting bootcamp on Weds. I think that helped. Threw some peanut butter in my shake. Next week Im going to add a little more and see how it goes. Apples (try to limit one a day if that) and I do have my quest bars (knowing to watch out), and found a new Pure protein bar that is pretty good (I think its 12 carbs or so but does have sugar alcohols) I had to grab one at the store cause my sugar was dropping and I needed something quick. I think Kidney beans are one of the lowest beans as well. I can get a little crazy on the nuts, so Im going to hold off on those. I think Its going to be beneficial to me to add more on my bootcamp days. Just have to keep an eye on it.
Definitely TGIF!!! Sounds like you are feeling a little better Hala, good news!
So...with my first week (ok, well since Monday) of low carb down, I hopped on the scale today. 6lbs down! Yay :)
I have to say that after having rny, its much easier to stick to. Im guessing thats the reason. That or my brain is just ready. Im sure its mostly water, but I dont care! Next week may be tougher as I'll be out at training all week in NC. At least Im going alone and wont have as much temptation (hopefully) Im also wanting to get in some jogging at the hotel gym so I dont lose another week. I did sign up for a mini bootcamp that will run thru August.
eats for today:
Scrambled egg w/ spinach and cream cheese
Picked up a chicken caesar salad from Panera (no croutons)
Think Im going to try a small apple (I got with my salad) and cheese
Baked talapia and roasted cauliflower
Have you tried these MIM's? Meal in Mug...I think its called. Mostly flaxseed. Can you do flaxseed? Ive seen this recipe and Im going to try to make one tonight and see how it turns out. You can make them sweet or savory depending on what you throw in.
I'll let you know how they turn out.
1/4 Cup flaxseed meal
1/2 Teaspoon baking powder
1/2 packet granular sugar substitute
1 Teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 large egg, beaten
1 Teaspoon butter (or canola oil)
Mix the flax meal, baking powder, sugar substitute and cinnamon in a coffee mug or single-serving soufflé dish.
Add the egg and butter (or oil). Mix with dry ingredients.
Microwave 1 minute or more, until firm
Turn out and serve with butter or cream cheese. Or toast before applying spread.
