Day Nine

Weekly Weigh-In:

I weighed myself this morning. Drum roll please… And I weighed in 156 lbs.!! Which is down from 157.4 lbs. last week so YAY! I honestly can’t remember the last time I saw 156 lbs. and it really reaffirms my commitment to this process of eating mindfully and slowly losing weight without depriving myself.

What I Ate Today:

Breakfast (478) I worked out this morning before breakfast and then had my usual post-workout breakfast smoothie: frozen banana, cup of almond milk, scoop of protein powder, and a cup of frozen berries. Then I had a grapefruit and I was feeling so good because of my weigh-in that I stopped at Starbucks on my way to work and ordered a grande nonfat misto. Yum!

Lunch (527) For lunch I decided to try out Smitten Kitchen’s new recipe: red bean and green grain taco bowl to which I added some crumbled tortilla chips for a topping (which she advises) and I had a small apple on the side. YUM! I highly recommend this recipe which is good since I have 2 servings to go.

Snacks (352)  I had a vanilla yogurt–petite creme–which I was told tastes more like European yogurt, which I prefer to thick Greek yogurt. I know, I’m an outlier. And then for dessert I had for small chocolate chip cookies. I should’ve stopped at 3 (the serving size) but for some reason that fourth cookie just jumped right from my hand to my mouth…

Dinner (643) For dinner I made this ginger and cilantro baked tilapia with some brown rice and roasted asparagus to go along with it. And then I had another grapefruit because why not.


Today I did Day 20 of Lauren Gleisberg’s 30×30 Fat Loss Shred. Which was 30 minutes of cardio. I tacked on an extra 10 which meant I ran/walked for about 3.37 miles.
