Week 2 Recap
I killed it this week! My current weight is 251.1 which is 6.6 pounds down for the start of this competition! I am super excited and almost out of the 50’s which is really awesome for me. Unfortunately, I was sick pretty much all week, so I didn’t go to the gym at all, so this weight loss I am seeing is purely diet based. If you’re wondering what I ate for lunches last week here it is.
Monday - Grilled chicken breast salad with ranch, no pita bread from Woodward Coney (in Detroit, MI)
Tuesday: Grilled chicken breast salad with ranch, no pita from Cadillac Coney (in Detroit, MI)
Wednesday: (Home sick) Tortilla with muenster cheese (quesadilla), and a large, fresh from the garden, tomato
Thursday: Left over buffalo wild wings – 3 parmesan garlic and 3 honey BBQ
Friday: (Team lunch) Mediterranean food – Chicken shwarma, hummus, garlic sauce, fattoush salad, falafel, and one pita
Saturday and Sunday: Traditional chicken lettuce wraps from Pei Wei (I am obsessed with these!)
For Dinner Saturday and Sunday, I had:
Saturday: #12 unwich from Jimmy John’s, a pickle and BBQ chips
Sunday: Grilled chicken, green beans, and a fresh tomato
For my water intake, I’ve been doing a pretty good job. I bought that gallon water bottle on amazon and have been able to drink at least half of it a day, which is a really great starting point. My goal is to eventually be able to drink the whole gallon everyday.
So, I am switching things up a little bit for this week. I want to try to start running again. If you’ve read my blog “Anna, the trainer who trains”, you will know that in the past I have ran a half marathon. Running used to be a huge part of my life and I stopped after trauma and I would like to pick it back up! So, I have decided to do couch to 5k. If you haven’t heard of that, if is an app that you download on your phone and it takes you through a 9-week training program where at the end you can run a 5k. It is 3 days a week, it starts you off very slow with a brisk 5-minute walk and then you jog for 60 seconds and walk for 90 seconds for a total of 25 minutes. I’m going to give this a try and see how it goes! I plan to run 3 days out of the weekday and then go to the gym on the weekends. I will just go upper body one day and lower body the other day. I will let you know in next weeks recap what exact exercises I ended up doing. As for food:
Monday – Sunday: Smoothie (Raw Organic Meal in chocolate, frozen banana, 1 tbsp peanut butter, unsweetened almond milk)
I will most likely eat more grilled chicken salads! I really like them, and I will probably eat them until I’m sick of it! I will recap you next week.
Monday: Homemade Burrito bowls (brown rice, pinto beans, grilled chicken, queso, guacamole, sour cream, shredded lettuce, shredded cheese)
Tuesday: Chicken Stir Fry (I get stir fry packets at Kroger)
Wednesday: Turkey burgers and cheesy broccoli (I’ll wrap my burger in lettuce instead of a bun)
Thursday: Homemade Chili
Friday: Eat out with my family
Saturday and Sunday: TBD – will recap next week
I am super excited to lose more weight and continue to get healthy and I will talk to you all next week! 😊
