Remember the 1.8 lbs I gained last week and gave up Mexican food
forever for the time being. Remember? Well, I am happy to let you know that the water weight evaporated just a couple of days later. WHEW! Better yet on Monday I weighed-in at 166.6 lbs and met this month’s Dietbet round with a whole week to spare and got this beautiful message after my weight and pictures were verified:
Yay! As a reward, I have been very good this week. I exercised about 10 hours and ate all my meals and snacks at home, I ate a lot of fruit, and plenty of salads, and just had a really yummy week that included a lot of fish, beans, and green stuff. I also reached the “60 pounds gone mark,” although I don’t know when because I wasn’t weighing myself every day but yesterday for kicks I stepped on the scale and I weighed 164.8 lbs. (I started at 225.4 lbs.) I found it really funny that I was so focused on the Dietbet’s round that I completely failed to check when I had reached this point. I am so happy since I can now confidently say that I have broken the plateau and things are really looking up.
Tomorrow starts the 48-hour window to weigh-in for round #2 but I’ll be doing mine Tuesday morning since I want to take advantage of my Monday night workout which is always very good 😀 I hope to have a very entertaining Dietbet Update post for you on Tuesday. Subscribe, if you haven’t already, so you don’t miss out.
On other news, I finished The Silent Wife and have made some serious progress on My Education but I confess that I’ll have to speed read so that I am done by Tuesday night and can appropriately discuss it at book club. I also watched the movie adaptation of The Giver which I still have mixed feelings about (as did many critics) but I still enjoyed the movie and although I haven’t read the following books yet I do hope they continue the story on the silver screen. I also watched X-Men: Days of Future Past and LOVED IT! I’m kicking myself for not watching it at the theater.
Finally, I watched Fed Up last night and I am still livid. I watched it again today and took plenty of notes so I hope to have my reaction post ready tomorrow. In the meantime, please notice the nutritional labels in your household items and how they do not provide a daily value percentage (%DV) for sugar. In searching for a reason for this I found that this is because “apparently” there is no recommended amount of sugar for a healthy population. Also, according to Congress, pizza is a vegetable. I’ll let you chew on that, or better yet, don’t!
