Weigh In Wednesday: 2/8/12 (Not technically)

I know I said I was going a couple of weeks without a scale.  Well, I peeked this morning.  It's not an official weigh in, but I have to say that my current plan is working!  I've unofficially lost four pounds from last week's unofficial weigh in.  (So much unofficial stuff going around!  I feel like I'm a spy or something!)

So, here's what I'm currently doing:

Wake up in the morning.

Work out (45 minutes cardio, 20-30 minutes weights & strengthening)

Eat breakfast.

Track calories.

Drink water.

Drink more water.

Track more calories




Get back to the hotel from the show.

If I have time at night, get back on the treadmill and walk while I watch TV.  Nothing strenuous, just burning more calories while walking at a comfortable pace.

Go to bed.

Rinse and repeat.

My covert February plan was to try and get that second work out in at night.  So far, I haven't done it but once, but its still in the plan.  I feel really good.  I just feel lighter if that makes sense.

The biggest thing is that I'm tracking every single thing that goes in my mouth.  That's HUGE.  I've been doing it for a week now and it's obviously paying off too.  I'm reminding myself what it feels like to eat proper portions.  Have I been hungry?  Yup, but I need to retrain that stomach to get used to the smaller portions.  That and eating healthier things.  I was actually very proud of myself during our stay in Detroit.  Because we had kitchens I cooked all but two meals for myself the entire two weeks we were there.  That's pretty darn good, and I'm sure why I saved on so many calories.  Helps when you aren't stuffing your face with sodium and fat laced restaurant food!

Also, I'm tracking the calories I burned and I'm eating back at least half of those calories every day.  I did this at the beginning when I was first losing weight and I think it helped because I wasn't eating the same number of calories everyday and therefore my body wasn't getting into too much of a routine.  You gotta shake it up.  Can't let it get stagnant!

I feel like I'm back on track.

Next week will be my next "official" weigh in.

Keep on truckin' my friends!
