Winter slim down week 24

My apologies for a belated update this week. There’ve been some pressing family matters which needed attending to.

OK, so here’s the lowdown: You’ll be so proud of me! I kept myself solid over the holidays, and with 2 days of eating whatever was available this week (as I was in a situation where my control over what I put in my mouth was quite limited), I still managed to weigh in this morning at a steady 63,8 kg again this morning. Yay me! The super cool thing; I’ve lost INCHES! Off my waist, hips, backside πŸ™‚ WWOOOOHHHOOO!

Again, David from Chape has been an absolute hero. Another win, David! Looks like you’re GREAT at what you do!

This previous week, I stuck to my workout regime (which I’ll be adding to this week – kettle bell swings and farmer carry). I do feel like I can take it up a small notch, and I have to anyway because I live on a decent plot of land which needs a LOT of work and upkeep (You will start seeing home reno and landscaping posts) starting, like…3 days ago. Take my word for it, its a cardio regime all on its own. Also, now that the ice has melted, I can take the dogs for longer walks, so I’ll be increasing that as well.

As for the diet; I’ve been downing lots of shakes (Protein and Spiralina / Chlorella), eating tons of beans, legumes and barley. We experimented with bean burgers (made our own) which tasted delicious, just like in a restaurant and with zero of the guilt. And drinking liters of matcha and green tea. I did make myself an albacore tuna salad and it rocked πŸ™‚ I cheated, but not too badly while out with a veggie and marinated tomato burrito (petit), hand sandwiches, waffle fries and a lime soda. (Not all at the same time – varying occasions over the 2 days I was in another locale). I’ve made an effort to keep apples, mandarins and pear on-hand so I can snack on fruit instead of waiting until I’m ravenous and eating everything I can just get my hands on. More of the same this week, because it seems to be working well and is keeping me quite full. πŸ™‚

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Thanks for reading!
