& another weekend where I struggled to eat enough food.
Wait - let me say "enough" as in containers. Still not getting them all in every day, but trying.
I will say, I still don't think its doing much for my weight. Which is frustrating as all get out.
I had caught the 21 Day Fix infomercial on this weekend & hearing people drop 10,15,25 lbs on the first round.
I even have a buddy doing it & in just the first few days, not even a week, he's already down 5 lbs.
I'm thrilled for everyone that this plan works for... but I don't understand why its not working for me.
I literally am working out every day, my calories are staying under 1,500 - some days even around 1,300 ... & I'm someone who usually ate around 2,100...
I'm just aggravated.
Tomorrow is my weigh day & I already know its not going to be a big drop...
I know - I know... the measurements... yeah. We'll see.
Can you feel me being deflated?
I really don't want to sound like a whine-bag... I really don't. I just don't get how this plan is so freaking amazing for everyone & I am sticking to it full force & I don't get the results. It doesn't make sense to me... unless my metabolism is non-existent ... & then what do I do?
On top of all the debby downer attitude... I did get in a fun run with the Color Run. It was great meeting up with some ladies from my church & doing it with them.
I was nervous meeting up with them because they are all pretty much in their 20's... & here I am, the "old lady"... I told them to do what they wanted to do. Don't worry about sticking with me. But everyone did a basic run / walk strategy & while their pace during the run was faster then mine, when they'd stop to walk, I was able to keep up by running a little bit more. It worked out OK.
I literally haven't ran in MONTHS... so it felt like starting all over again. My legs were so tight the rest of the day. My quads kept getting spasms in them all night long. They totally forgot what running feels like I guess.
It was a great event though.
I loved they added the "Sparkle" to the path. The silver sparkle was my favorite by far... everyone was just glittering in the sun.
|So much for tracking time|
I will say I did get a little freaked out when the packet they gave you to throw at the end, the gold glitter - if you read the ingredients in it, it said ALUMINUM. That's not healthy - right?
& now that gold glitter is STILL flying around my car...
great... but pretty...
My biggest treat of the weekend - which totally fit in the plan, a trip to O'Charley's.
They have the best healthy green salad for a side salad, with no cheese or anything bad on it (once you take off the croutons) & then I got a tilapia on rice with broccoli. I even portioned out the rice & gave half to Ricky. Look at me trying like someone who COULD loose weight.
It was nice eating out with the hubs, feeling like a real person with a real life style.
So I'm heading into my last week of the 21 day fix.
Trying to find some new lunch ideas.
& prepared for some good healthy dinners.
The Hubs even went to the store with me yesterday & we picked out some new things to try. & I FINALLY found some squash & zuchinni. YES!
So I keep Pressing On ... day 15, here we go.
