Sweet! I’ve lost 1.4 lbs since my last post a week ago. Last week I had a minor setback so I was very happy to see that not only am I back on track but I am lighter now than I’ve been in probably a year. There have been some changes that have helped in this latest progress. Over the last week I probably didn’t exercise as much as I wanted to and looking back I see some changes in what I’m eating. I didn’t eat any sweets at all and I’ve avoided the soy chai lattes that I like so much. Instead of the soy chai lattes I’ve been drinking green teas and black teas. Another change is the shake that I’ve been making for breakfast was 540 calories and 46 grams of protein, which is just way too much. The new version of the shake is 280 calories and 17 grams of protein. I don’t feel like I’m eating as much as I was before either which is easy to say the day before the holiday season starts.
Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and this can present some challenges for a guy trying to shed a few pounds. Fortunately, the guests that we’ve invited to our pot-luck Thanksgiving are health-conscious eaters and I don’t expect to see any fatty foods here. I plan an going for a walk and lifting weights in the morning to offset the noshing that will go on for the remainder of the day.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone!
