When I posted my goals for June, I didn’t put a weight related goal in there because I have been working on that for a few months now and it hasn’t changed. It’s slow going, but I am actually seeing some progress. I am down 7 pounds since the beginning of March. A rate of about 2 pounds a month, but it adds up over time.
There are a lot of reasons for slower loss, but the biggest is really how much I am willing to cut out. I love food. I have no interest in giving up all kinds of stuff. Cut down, yes. I do eat a lot of the same meals, like various forms of chicken:
No veggies with that meal. I try to eat them with every dinner, but it doesn’t always happen. I was out of broccoli here.
Dinner is often time for eggs, too.
This is why one of my goals was to do more recipes – I am kind of in a rut.
Lots of yogurt for lunch. I loves me some Fage!
The usual suspects for breakfast.
Daily afternoon latte, of course. Iced lately with warmer weather.
In the evenings I eat a lot of fruit. I eat a ton of blueberries, especially at this time of year.
Then there are the things that I add in here and there for the enjoyment of food, like going out for coffee:
A non-ride cupcake (these have to be smaller on non ride days):
The bagel days:
Even a beer on occasion from a local brewery:
