Week One Weight Loss Check-In

I know I am late on my weekly check-in, and I will explain in another post, but please give me leniency! Can I get immunity at least because I got my Covid booster and flu shot a week and a half ago and still have some side effects?

The Results
My Week of Change

If you read my previous post, I was talking about all these goals I would reach and how I would make all these changes; I didn’t do so well with keeping my word, but I am overall proud of myself.

Starting from Jan 12, here is what I did.

Thursday, Jan 12 – Came from the doctor and declare to change. I ate baked chicken and veggies.

Friday, Jan 13 – peach smoothies and homemade chicken tacos with gluten-free wraps

Saturday, Jan 14 – I went to a private wedding, and I started out eating well.¬† But somewhere between the salad and rice, I let the carbs creep in. This is what I ate! Salmon, garden salad, yellow rice, banana pudding, key lime cake with cream cheese icing, strawberry shortcake, and red wine… Yes, I Did! But I only tasted wine. I thought it was grape juice, but it wasn’t, so I gave it to Natlie!

All week – I made sure to fix low-carb meals from Sunday, Jan 15 – Sat, Jan 21.

  • baked chicken sauteed with veggies.
  • black beans cooked with salsa for taco night
  • sauteed mushroom, onions, and bell peppers with chicken
  • homemade oatmeal with frozen peaches or other fruits
  • pork steak with fried apples and onions
  • scrambled eggs, onions, and bell peppers in a gluten-free wrap

My seasonings:

  • lemon pepper
  • onion powder
  • garlic powder
  • ¬†white pepper
  • black pepper
  • crushed red peppers
  • paprika
  • kosher/ sea salt
  • Baked Chicken Sauce:1/4 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 cup robust Italian dressing mixed with parmesan cheese
  • salsa
Water Intake

One gallon a day. If you don’t like the taste of regular water, spruce it up.

  • ginger and lemon
  • strawberries
  • apples and cinnamon
  • lemons and limes
  • cherries
  • mint
  • orange slices
  • cucumbers
  • pineapple

Make sure you drink as much water as possible; your goal is a gallon. It flushes out all those toxins and keeps you hydrated and feeling full, and it is great for my kidney health.

How I got my steps in

I am a SAHM, so it is a little difficult to walk but so far. I have invested in the weighted hula hoop, and when I watch tv or listen to music. I put it on and shake my hips. It sounds too good to be true, but it works. Give the hula hoop a chance if you struggle walking or to move around.

For me, it is a great way to exercise and not feel like I’m exercising. Also, a fun fact to know, 30 minutes on the hula hoop is like walking 2 miles.

weekly summary

I tried to walk 7000 steps a day, but I forgot to always keep my phone on me. I didn’t feel too well after those shots, but I still pushed to make a dent in my exercise.

I could have made more smoothies, but I chose to cook instead. Next week I will improve my smoothie intake.
