So another week's gone by and I lost a kilo exactly. 2.2 lbs. I'm happy with that. I hope it just sticks to a steady loss. This week, I feel like I was better in some things and worse in other ways. Like on Thursday we were invited to a birthday party and I skipped dinner to have a piece of cake. I also used about a quarter of my points today to have a couple of THESE that I made for the kids today. It's Safiyah's 6th birthday and she requested the chocolate-chocolate chip cookies. They are so good, I'm telling you, just THE best double chocolate chip cookies.
The kids had a couple of days off school this week for a national holiday (Oct6, war holiday) and I didn't go walking on those days but the last time we walked longer, We're doing an hour instead of 40 minutes now and I just love it. I feel good. I'm drinking a lot more water. I put some lemon in it to keep it interesting sometimes.
For breakfast I usually have a bowl of corn flakes mixed with fiber cereal, musli and skim milk, sometimes a sliced banana in there too. Later I'll have a light yogurt or fruit. I start off my dinner with a big salad. I'll put lettuce, tomatoes, cucumber, green and yellow peppers, mushrooms and shredded carrot. For dressing a Tbsp of Olive oil and lemon, salt and pepper. It tastes good and fills you up so you don't want to eat as much. I'll usually have a small portion of chicken or meat and veggies. If I have macaroni for the kids, I'll add a little bit to my salad. Roasted cauliflower with garlic prooved to be delicious. Also a good snack is air popped popcorn. 3 cups is just one point and it satisfies that crunchy craving and fills you up. I make it over the stove, in a pot old school style and add some salt. Good stuff.
So that makes my 2 week loss 6.6 lbs or 3 kilos. I'll take it. I'm really looking forward to seeing and feeling a real difference in my clothes etc. InshaAllah.
