It’s been about 3 weeks into this losing weight thing. As of yesterday morning I’m down almost 7 pounds and back to where I was the day I left for New Orleans on February 4th. Which is good, but it could be better. As far as food goes, I’ve been sticking to a paleo diet about 90% of the time. I’ve had a couple bites of lumpia, I’ve had some crumbled goat cheese on a salad, and a few glasses of milk. Just little stuff here and there. As far as drinking, I’ve been sticking to vodka/soda/limes. Sometimes I’ll add a stevia packet in there if I’m drinking at home. I’ve been really good about not drinking at home but I’ve been out a few times and did drink a lot. And of course when I’m drunkypoo I don’t care about what I drink so I have had several beers. I don’t have any plans other than this Sunday’s Salsa Fest so hopefully the excessive going out and drinking will dicipate.
I’ve been going to the gym for cardio 3-6 days a week. If I can’t make it to the gym I try to get outside and walk/jog. Usually I bring Hippo along. I’ve also been doing calisthenics at home for 10-20 minutes and I just bought a pretty neat resistance band set off Amazon for $22.
I’m currently writing this while on a break in jury duty. I really hope I don’t get picked for this case. The trial could last a week and I really don’t want to sit in a courtroom for 8 hours a day for 5 or 6 days. Fingers crossed!
My goal is to lose another 7-10 pounds in 3 weeks when I update again.
