  • Step 4 – Plan my meals for the week.

Another one of my takeaways is to try to come up with our dinner menus on the weekends. Brett and I often find ourselves wandering the grocery store after work and opting for some bad meal choices. This way, we plan in advance and have everything on hand for later in the week.

Weigh-in: Through Week 12

I thought I would take this opportunity to do a video blog of my progress. It’s been about 8 weeks since my last update for my “Eating Restructuring Plan.” This is a new thing for me doing the video on my computer – so bear with me. It’s good to know that my vocal tic is the word “um,” so please don’t flog me for that. I’ll work on that before the next video post. 🙂

 

Here’s my roundup through week 12:

  • Weight: 172.8 (-4 pounds overall)
  • Waist: 34.5 inches (-2.5 inches overall)
  • Hips: 40 inches (-2 inches overall)

Things to watch in the next two weeks:

  • Get to the gym 3 times a week. Zumba at least one.
  • Watch the carb cravings. No more biscuits!
  • Stay positive!
