Last Tuesday I shared my 2017 resolution here, to recommit to a healthy lifestyle and healthy choices in an effort to shed 8-10 pounds. I also promised to come back each week to share my progress...
So I'm happy to report that I'm down exactly 3 pounds. I'm pretty sure that was holiday weight since it came off quickly, but I suspect losing more won't be easy! As I mentioned last week, this effort is entirely focused on healthy eating habits and choices. My workout schedule is full so I have that piece covered.
Overall I think I made some healthier snack choices this past week, but I still find myself craving crunchy snacks such as Goldfish, Snap Peas Crisps, crackers and tortilla chips. I always have fruit and veggies in the house so I just need to keep redirecting myself to the refrigerator instead of the pantry!
I also tried to keep my dinner portions in check. I did not go back for seconds and I think that helped too.
Dessert is another challenge for me, I love a little sweet treat after dinner. The trick is to keep it to a small sweet treat like a couple of dark chocolate squares or a biscotti with a cup of tea.
I look forward to checking in again next week, hopefully with more progress!
Are you sticking to your resolution?
