It’s time for Weightloss Wednesday! As of yesterday, I am at 202.4 lbs which means I have lost about 2 lbs from last week.
The big thing this week is I started tracking my food using the Lose It! app. I have to say, this has been a game changer for me. It has been so interesting to see a little more clearly how many calories I am eating. My dinner last night was over 1600 calories! That is my entire allotment for the day according to the goals I programed into the app. That absolutely floored me when I saw it. It really drove home that I am absolutely terrible at estimating calories. It also made me thankful that I don’t really care about calories as much as eating real high-fat food.
Psychologically the tracking has has an affect on me. For whatever reason, now that I am tracking I am finding it easier to fast when I’m at work, Eve since I started this I either fast or on occasion I’ll have some Wild Planet sardines, not so much for the food but for the Omega 3 fatty acids I’m probably not getting anywhere else in my normal diet. In fact I’m listening to Deep Nutrition on Audiobook while I’m at work and one of the things she is driving home is how important Omega 3’s are for your health and weight loss.
Something else that was different this week was I didn’t do any Kettlebell swings. I tweaked my neck and didn’t want to do anything to aggravate it. It’s about 90% healed now so I think I’m going to wait another day or 2 to resume.
How did you do this week? Let me know in the comments!
