This week is HUGE, as I have the opportunity to finish all of my graduate work! All that stands between me and graduating is a final project, a quiz, and 5 message board posts! I am so determined to be done by Sunday!! Woo hoo!
It’ll be so great to be done with grad school as my wedding to do list is ever-growing. Being able to focus just on the wedding is incredibly exciting, especially because it’s just 9 weeks away. On top of that, Neal and I are prepping for our move, which is just around the corner.
Week 6 Workout Plans
|Body Revolution||Other Workout|
A few weeks ago I shared that I was trying to decide whether or not to continue tracking my calories in My Fitness Pal or to return back to the CORE program. Since then I have stopped tracking on My Fitness Pal and feel great. Counting calories is a fantastic way to visually see how what you are putting in your body adds up, but as I have shared, it isn’t what was best for me. I find that if I listen to my body, some days I need more calories and some days I need less.
Ultimately, it is important for you to do what is best for your own life, body, and journey. I have always been honest on Coffee, Cake and Cardio about my quest to lose weight and hope that it helps others who struggle with their weight to find the path that helps them reach their own goal.
Here’s a look at what I’ve been eating over the past week…
Breakfast – Every day I have been having a packet of oatmeal with some raisins and almonds mixed in. With a cup of coffee on the side, it keeps me full until lunch.
Lunch – Each day is different but I usually bring in a salad with some sort of protein. Yesterday I had a salad with grilled chicken and a goat cheese round. Today I am having a sweet potato and a can of vegetable soup.
Dinner – Again, dinner is different most days. I usually eat some form of carbohydrates with dinner but it varies day-to-day. Last night I had a sweet potato, side salad, and a turkey corn dog. Tonight I’m planning to have a big salad with some grilled chicken.
Tomorrow I’ll be posting my May goals and would love to hear about your goals moving forward. I hope each one of you has a fantastic Tuesday! Happy goal setting!
