Okay, I finally allowed myself to step on the scale. It’s been 13 days since my new journal and calorie counting journey. I started out around 162 and this morning (on the last day of my period, no less) I weighed in at 157.8.
Granted, today, I went overboard with nibbling on chocolate for about an hour straight as I watched Pride and Prejudice, but we already know that I’m ending my period, so this is to be expected. Tomorrow, I’ll do better.
But, yay! I’ve lost weight! And I haven’t been as dedicated as I should be with my intake. Perhaps my progress will improve if I focus on eating the right things as opposed to just filling up calories with sweets.
I’ve bought another journal. I’m 11 days into going back to my old ways of logging food and calories, measuring myself, and not stepping on the scale. The scale and I became enemies when the toilet bowl started telling me to purge my sins into its depths … if you get me.
So, current measurements are:
arm - 11
chest - 35
waist - 29
low waist - 38 1/2 (hello hips!)
thigh - 22 1/4
two weeks from now, I’ll post my measurements again. Hopefully there will be a difference.
Yummmy!!! Each bite is like a shot of espresso. I love it!
1 Cup of mixed Cashews and Almonds
1 Cup of pitted dates
`1/2 Cup of coffee beans (or to taste)
1 T of honey
1 tsp of vanilla extract
1 T of Raw Protein powder (Marley Coffee flavor) ya mon!
Blend everything in a food processor till sticky and workable. Then form into bars with your hands and wrap in plastic wrap to store. Mine are currently sitting in my fridge. :)
You should be able to get six to seven bars out of one batch, and each one should come in around 225 calories each, depending on add ins and whatnot.
