So a week has passed and you may ask, “How am I doing now?”
I am still loosing weight. I’m down a total of 5.6 lbs from January 1st and I’m still loosing inches. I did a weight and measurement update for Precision Nutrition (it’s a program I’ve been doing for 6+ months now with my friend Jessica) and found I have lost 2 more inches. I went ahead and snapped some pictures while I was at it. Total lost since January 5.6 lbs and 6 inches.
Here are my progress shots from January 1 to today. 6 inches total and 5.6 lbs.
But if you go back to June when I started PN, I’m down 15.5 inches. I’m now at a lowest weight in a long while because of stress and letting food choices sneak in that I didn’t need.
I see nice changes especially in my mid section. 🙂
So how has my food been and what have I added back? So first I had a protein shake with my favorite protein powder. The first day I had it, I ended up with a bad headache that evening. I didn’t know if it was connected to the shake, so I had a second one the next day and felt crappy, had another headache and decided that this was all connected. So unfortunately I can’t have that protein powder anymore. I may play with a couple new ones. I do struggle with getting enough protein from my food alone and I enjoy having it in my coffee to give me a boost in the morning.
So after those could days, I went back to eating strictly Whole 30 and felt better. Eating normal items for breakfast like the granola, fruit and almond butter, or eggs with sweet potatoes and spinach. I even made a big batch of egg roll in a bowl so I have lunch options.
Last night I made chili, with all Whole 30 compliant items except I added beans. I feel fine today, not that I need to have beans everyday because they can rob nutrients from your body as they travel through your digestive system, but at least I know that I can eat them without any ill effects. I will continue adding in a few more food items and see how I do.
