I walked at least 30 minutes every day. Twice I did the elliptical, and twice I walked longer than an hour.
I feel great.
I am hoping to add yoga at home…I’d love to take a class, but it’s been so long since I’ve done yoga, I’m afraid I’ll fall, knock someone over, or fart in someone’s face. Or all three. The Yoga Trifecta. No thanks.
This week, I’ll add in more ab work. I managed 3 days of good ab work last week. I need to do more. When my core is stronger, it makes all of my exercising easier. (also, my pants fit better! LOL)
Because I have such a lofty weight-loss goal for the 12 week challenge, I dropped my calories to 1200. Ideally, I’d like to average losing 3 lbs per week. I know this is over the recommended loss, but…I’m doing it the right way, so I’m not worried. And if I don’t meet that goal, that’s okay, too. The main purpose of this 12 weeks is to exercise for at least 30 mins 6 days a week and document my food intake.
Speaking of food….I made the best Salmon ever last week. I found the recipe on Pinterest. I am a fantastic cook, but I have never really mastered salmon. I’m always terrified of under cooked fish, so I end up over cooking it. Not this time.
Yesterday, I used the leftovers in our breakfast. Which…btw…was fucking awesome. Wheat toast with olive oil, Laughing Cow Light Queso & Chipotle spread, 1 fried egg over medium, 2 oz of salmon, 1/4 avocado. I ate it as an open-faced sandwich and mmmmmmmmm. All for 420 calories and 27 grams of protein!
Hope you guys had a great week!
