Weigh In Wednesday 1/25/2017

Good morning everyone and how was your week?  Today is Day 30 of the Whole 30 so tomorrow I'll be hopping on the scales and have all the details for you next week.  It's been a good week, a busy week and I hit my FitBit goal (5000 steps, I'm starting slowly) three days so far.  I'm on Day 14 of tracking water - 64 ounces each day.  It's so hard at times as I am not a water drinker.  Sometimes I'll get to noon and realize I haven't had any water (in its pure form, but I've certainly had enough of it in coffee!).  I have a 32-ounce water bottle so I only have to fill it up twice and I find myself chugging water so that I'm not drinking it in the late evening.  Y'all know what that means, up all night with endless trips to the bathroom!

Anyway, since I last checked in, we tried One-Pan Herb-Crusted Roasted Salmon which was delicious on Wednesday, Chicken Adobo (made with coconut aminos instead of soy sauce) that I made for Vic's lunches but we ended up eating for a quick dinner on Thursday night, and we grilled a flank steak on Friday that ended up being leftovers on Saturday.  Vic headed out on a business trip on Sunday so I made a giant pot of chili and I'm working my way through that while he's gone.  CrockPot and leftovers, very easy for one-person dinners.

I was challenged by a ladies lunch yesterday but I triumphed.  While the people sitting around me munched through the most amazing looking and smelling seafood quesadilla and parmesan fries and a prime rib sandwich on focaccia, I peeled some jumbo steamed shrimp and ate the veggies that were steamed with it.  I also drank four huge glasses of water. 

Hope you all had a good week, don't beat yourselves up if it was one of those UGH weeks, just get back on track and continue on your way.


  1. Good for you!!!!! Keep it up. The salmon sounds very good. I'm a firm believer in drinking lots of water and I keep several bottles beside my chair each day to ensure I drink it all.

  2. I can't wait to hear your results! So exciting :)
