212.5. I stepped on the scale three times just to be sure. Phewwww.
It's a lot like karma, isn't it? A couple of weeks ago, I should have lost weight for all my hard work, but didn't. This week, I didn't deserve the loss at all. It all comes back to you in the end.
It's a pound, but I will gratefully grab it. I'm setting a goal for this Friday's weigh in of 211.5. No personal training sessions this week for a few reasons, but I'll get back to them next week.
Here's what I'm planning on eating (or have eaten) today:
Breakfast: whey protein shake with cinnamon, flax seeds, and fresh rasberries
Snack: 5 strawberries and three thin slices of low-fat cheeddar
Lunch: one bowl of carrot and lentil soup, one piece of whole-wheat flax bread, and a zip-lock bag of baby carrots and celery sticks
Snack: one fat-free, sugar-free, organic yogurt plus one red apple
Snack (pre-workout): 1/2 an organic vegan bar
Dinner: Vegetarian lasagna (no noodles - eggplant layers instead) - with fresh zucchini, spinach, mushrooms, onion, low-fat parmesan, cottage cheese, and mozzarella cheese on top. With steamed asapargus on the side.
It looks so healthy on paper! If only I can stick to this without my chocolate fix, I'll be well on my way. Next weigh in: Wednesday.
