Two weeks in a row, dare I say I might have found my groove again... Crap I probably just jinxed myself… But I did lose (not quite a pound this week but that's pretty normal for me after a week of a bigger loss (2+ pounds last week) .
This week what kept my streak going were just the basics.
Portion control. I made my favorite chili Monday (I have been craving soups and chili for weeks) and instead of grabbing the huge bowl (that I could demolish and go back for more) I opted for a coffee mug perfect size about one cup and I felt satisfied instead of overly full.
I also got in a really good work out at the gym I tried a
new made-up HIIT treadmill workout and it made the time go by pretty fast and I never got bored. I ran at a 5mph pace 1.5% incline for 2 songs then walked at a 3mph 5% incline for one song then a 3.5mph at a 18% incline for 2 more songs and did that 4 times. I was drenched in sweat by the time I was done and had burned 500 calories!

and doing the thing that is the reason for my healthy lifestyle change
playing with my kidddo. We took the bike out for a three mile ride to the park and back. DQ did a great job keeping up on her new big girl bike and she even got me on the swings!
