NSV: Stop the snacking - Not quite, most days were good, I snacked on fruit, but a few days were not so great. I greatly reduced the snacking, but did not eliminate it altogether. I was mostly happy with that! :) Exercise: C25K week 1 Total success! Actually the whole exercising was successful. My daughter and I did 3 nights of C25K, I did Level 1 of the 30 day shred on 2 mornings and a Leslie Sansone Dvd on one morning and a 40 minute bike ride on Sunday afternoon. Very happy with my exercising this week.Nutrition: 2 liters of water Did not track, but I'm pretty sure I got this in! Mini challenge: try 1 new fruit or vegetable this week.
I tried Eggplant. I've had it once or twice before, but always hidden among many other veggies. I was really liking the pictures of Eggplant Parmesan, but decided I wanted to know what Eggplant tasted like.
So I sliced my 2 small veggies, drizzled them with some oil, and sprinkled garlic salt and some parsley on them. First impression... roasted sunflower seeds.
They were ok, but I didn't eat them all, my husband ate some, but we were both not too excited. I will probably eat them again, (I've asked my sister to make us some Ratatouille this week) and I may at some point make the Eggplant Parmesan dish I looked at. And I think I'll also try it baked with tomato, basil and mozzarella like Treadmill Hiker suggested. But now I know what Eggplant tastes like!
I loved being challenged to do this! :)
Weight: I'd like to lose at least a pound again. Easter food... :(
NSV: I have some pants ... they are size 20 and I'd like to fit them by the end of the challenge. I fit a 22/24 now and I can zip the 20's but serious muffin top there. But for this week I'd like my tightest 22's to fit.
Exercise: C25K Week 2
Nutrition: I revisited my goals on MFP and decided I needed to reduce my calories if I wanted to lose a little faster and more consistently. Which also means tracking more closely. So my calorie goal is 1520 a day, and I'll be tracking!
Mini-challenge for the week. Do an exercise you don't normally do.
I just bought some 2 kg weights and am planning on working my arms. I did quite a few bicep and tricep curls this morning and will be checking out some more exercises to do with them on the internet. Again, suggestions welcome.
