I forgot to post, but didn't forget to weigh myself last Friday.
My weight was 154.5 on 10/4.
I feel like I'm just fluctuating between a couple pounds which is most likely water weight and inflamation in response to foods that disagree with me.
Since I can't seem to consistently exercise for various reasons, I was inspired by Reed to squeeze in a short 10 to 15 minute work out just before taking a shower. I've done this twice now and I think that mentally linking exercise to showering will create a good habit that allows for flexibility in my schedule.
Also, my in-laws are successful distributors for a wellness company (it is their main stream of income) and I started using the meal replacement shakes for breakfast. I honestly wanted to avoid this because I've been striving to eat organic, whole food for a while now. But, desperate times call for desperate measures... I guess.
Lunch has been a rotation between soups, salads, and the meal replacement shakes. My goal is to always keep my lunch calories below 300. (I had originally posted "200" and that was a typo.) It seems to be working.
Dinners were my pitfall. I didn't change the biggest meal we eat until this week because I honestly didn't know what to do. I attempted going Paleo but that was frustrating because of the constant search for rare ingredients. Maybe I didn't try hard enough. However, if I can find all the ingredients, I will use a Paleo dish. This week, I began using the book, Saving Dinner the Low-Carb Way, by Leanne Fly. It does all my meal planning for me, including a grocery list! I luv this book!
So, combined with the pre-shower exercise, meal replacement shakes, and low carb dinners, I'm hopeful that over the next couple weeks (I'm not expecting a weight loss this week) I will see some weight loss.
