So this week I haven't lost any weight, I have stayed the same. Now I'm not as disheartened as the last time this happened because of two reasons. One I have been doing more work with weights so I think I have lost any fat then I may have gained it in muscle. Two, this may be too much information but it is nearing "my time of the month" and I always seem to gain couple of lbs around then so I'm hoping I'll notice more of a difference next week.
What I have noticed, usually around this time of the month I become extremely bloated, I start to look like I'm pregnant but this month I am staying roughly the same size.
So what's my plan for this week?
Exercise wise I'm continuing to add in more weight and ab based workouts as I'm keen to tone everything up, those wobbly bits need to go!! I'm also part way through this 31 day challenge, I find little challenges keep me motivated and encourage me to do a bit of exercise each day.
Food wise, I have to say I'm loving eating healthier although I still enjoy the odd indulgence. Having a meal plan has really helped me stick to better foods too. My main problem is snacking in the evenings, I think I get bored and tend to eat my way through the bordem. So I've switched up crisps for salted popcorn and instead of chocolate I've been making my own cereal bars.
My meal plan for this week :
Breakfast : Overnight oats, porridge or protein pancakes.
Lunch : Soup or scrambled eggs with ryvita crackers.
Monday - Pork stir fry
Tuesday - Turkey meatloaf
Wednesday - Quinoa and chickpea salad
Thursday - Healthy fry up
Friday - Chicken and chickpea curry with brown rice
Saturday - I'm out for the night so this will be treat night :)
Sunday - Beef stew
Drink wise I'm sticking to green tea and water. Every week I do allow myself some alcohol but what I have changed is the amounts. Instead of drinking a whole bottle of wine in a night, I am only allowing myself one glass as lets be honest as good as it tastes, it is empty calories being consumed!!
Here's to another week of being healthy, we can do it!!
