Weight Loss Journey Part 2 - Week 1

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:

  1. It's awesome that you can still eat good while losing weight. Good luck on your journey!

  2. Good for you to get back to it! I am a huge believer in eating what you want and not depriving yourself, but watch calories and portions. As long as nothing is forbidden, then I don't feel deprived. Good luck!

  3. The cold weather has really thrown a wrench into my exercising habit. I need to do better about working out at home when I can't make it to the gym. Thanks for the motivation!

  4. From my experience, any and everything that can get in the way of your routine, will. But I love how you haven't let the weather, hold you back. Congrats on being back at it.

  5. Glad you were able to get back on track in spite of the horrendous weather we all have been experiencing. Keeping track of carbs will definitely help you to lose weight.

  6. I always feel better when I get a good work out in, especially when the weather is crummy! Great job! p.s. those exercise balls are an awesome core workout!

  7. I've still never tried a Wii for fitness. I do bet it's fun though, esp. when the kids are there and can 'play' too. :)

  8. Wow... those english muffins look so delicious... yeah of course im focused on the desert lol

  9. I need to break out my Wii for some added fitness. My primary exercise is Beachbody programs at home, but there are times when I just want a little more or something 'fun' in the day.

  10. I ALWAYS forget the Wii for fitness...what a great way to utilize it!! Your English Muffins look yummy, too!
