Not exactly the first week numbers I was hoping for, but a loss is a loss and I’ll take it!
I had forgotten just how difficult getting back into a weight loss routine can be. I spent most of last week unable to stand up without exclaiming “OW, OW, OW!” and on Saturday I couldn’t even complete my workout b/c when I went into a squat my left quad erupted in pain. I’m hoping I’ve just strained the muscle and this isn’t an indication of a bigger issue. I have an email into my vein doctor to double check that I shouldn’t be worried about clotting.
My diet was pretty on track this week. I’ve been using a calorie counting website to track my eating habits and managed to track every day last week except for Sunday. We had a potluck at church and I just didn’t know how to record the food that I ate. (I will say that I was a good girl and only made one plate of food, had one diet soda (my only all week!), and had one dessert (as opposed to a piece of every dessert!).)
I’m allowing myself to eat 1600 calories a day, which is on the high end. I’m still nursing so I want to make sure I eat enough to produce nutritious milk for Juliet. But I think I’m still on the high side of caloric intake and may knock my daily calories down to 1500.
Here’s hoping my Week 2 shows some good results! I really want to see a 1 as the first number in my weight on the scale here soon!
