This week was the first full week that I went back into my weight loss journey full swing. It has been a while since I posted about my week and it feels good that I actually have some great things to report. I originally started this blog to hold me accountable and I have not used it to its potential. I started blogging about other things and let my weight loss journey go to the back burner. I am back though! I want to continue on this Journey and name it Part 2!
I decided to continue eating low carb since it has worked well for me and it didn't feel like I was dieting. Instead of eating as much cheese and fats as I wanted I kept it to the recommended servings and added fruits and vegetables into my carb count.
I finally started using the specialty low carb ingredients I purchased like psyllium husks to make bread and erythritol to make desserts. I made this delicious english muffin in the microwave! For my dessert of the week I made these yummy and decadent chocolate truffles.
Since the weather has been horrible with snow, ice and slush I decided to continue exercising at home. I used my DynaPro exercise ball and resistance band for strength training. Then I used my Exercise Pinterest Board for some inspiration and did a lot of "Quiet" exercise for cardio.
I also took out my Wii and did some of the exercise games I had with my daughter. She loved it and it was fun to do something together.
Next Week's Plan:
- Monday: Quiet Cardio Workout
- Tuesday: Total Body Workout with Stability Ball for Beginners
- Wednesday: Quiet Cardio Workout
- Thursday: Full Body Resistance Band Workout
- Friday: Yoga For Weight Loss & Flexibility Day 1 Workout
