I have two main goals for November.
The first goal is to work on my calorie counting.
Today marks the last day of my 6 week weight loss challenge. As I’ve mentioned before, the weight is coming off very slow. I did lose 3 pounds in the 6 weeks which is a lot less than I expected but I am still trying. My excuse? Life happened. I got busy, big deal. I know I could have done a lot better but I had to prioritize. Anyway, I am starting to count calories (yuck) and figure out what is going on in my body.
Yesterday I actually ate one serving of pasta.
whole wheat pasta, veggie smart sauce, nooch, and tofurkey Italian sausage
(who eats one proper serving of pasta anyway?)
Look at how sad that plate looks!
Such a small plate at 375 calories. Before, I would have ate twice this much and only thought it was only a 450 calorie meal. To my surprise, this was actually filling. I didn’t feel “full” but I did feel like I was satisfied.
With that said, my next goal is to lose 5 more pounds by Thanksgiving.
If I can lose the last 4-5 pounds, I will have officially lost the 10 pounds I’ve gain this year (I lost 2-3 pounds before the challenge started)! In these last couple months of getting back in shape, I have realised that I never want to get back off track ever again! It’s too easy to fall into bad habits. Cleaning up the habits takes a lot of hard work and dedication.
