198.8 lbs.: Checking In!

For 206.2 lbs.: How Did This Happen?

I am super excited to check in and share that I did indeed lose some weight via my January month of Whole30. The diet – and I am using that word in the sense of what I was eating, not any restrictions I was imposing upon myself – reset was exactly what I needed and by the end of it, I craved bread or sweets only sparingly.



Did I do the workout portion of my January commitment…remember the half hour or so of elliptical? False. Shame of me for not following through; I found that once I was inside for the night, it was difficult for me to leave the building for the gym. This month has been beyond cold and the weather served as the ultimate deterrent that I just could not face.

How am I planning on making progress for February?

In addition to hitting the eight glasses of water a day minimum, I am going to keep my breakfast and lunch weekday diet of black coffee, vegetable frittata, tuna salad on greens with balsamic vinegar, bone broth, and kombucha. Rather than eat Whole30-compliant for dinner, I am going to make one of the meals I discovered over at Goop. the cauliflower black bean bowl and the poached salmon are the GOAT. (Both are pinned on my Whole30 board.) I am going to continue is keep alcohol to a minimum; more specifically to one weekend day only. I enjoyed no longer waking up with a headache or nausea.



I am beyond stoked to try Bikram yoga tomorrow. While I have practiced many styles of yoga, I have low-key been intimidated by hot yoga. I heard that it is easier to ease into it during the winter months while the studios tend to be draftier. The notion of sweating out all of the toxins is appealing, so with a generous introductory offer at the studio two blocks away, I will face the elements and get down to the studio. My goal is to attend a class at least four times a week.

 

Let’s revisit this in a month.
