Yesterday was weigh in day and I lost 1.4 pounds bringing the total to 32.8 pounds loss.
I wasn't so strict with my calories this week and enjoyed some things I have been avoiding like bread and a cup of decaf coffee. I indulged a little with some Puerto Rican cuisine on Wednesday but shared my sandwich with my sister. I tried the the Cook Simple Jambalaya Rice and added turkey kielbasa and shrimps. It was amazing!
On Saturday I went over my mom's and had one of her famous pork chops. Instead of eating it with a starch I had it with some salad. Although I know it is OK for me to indulge a little I really need to get back to counting my calories just to make sure I am not going over.
I had a great fitness week and went to the gym 3 times this week. I am super happy with my gym so far. The environment, the people and the equipment are awesome! I took a super long walk on Wednesday with my sister which was perfect to burn off the meal we ate. My FitBit Flex buzzed really early that day with my calories burned goal completed.
I wore my Polar F11 heartrate monitor at the gym and it kept pushing me to work harder. When my heart rate wasn't in the fat burning zone I just added more to the incline and speed of the treadmill.
