Last weekend was Passover, which meant eating with Gordon's family Saturday night, and with Anne's family Sunday night. I had decided beforehand that I was going to eat everything I wanted those nights, so I was really careful about what I ate the rest of the weekend. I was still a bit bloated for a couple of days, but I'm already back to where I was before Passover, so no complaints.
I'm in serious workout mode now. A month to go before the wedding, and I want to be as fit as I can be by then! Yesterday I decided to shake it up a little - 5 minutes on the rowing machine, 5 minutes on the stairmaster (which I learned I still hate), and 40 minutes on the elliptical machine.
Food these days (except for my bridal shower and birthday parties) is very strict, but is essentially Dr. D's Healthy Weight Loss plan. A protein shake in the mornings, O-friendly snacks and meals. I do sometimes have 2 protein shakes a day as meal replacements simply because I don't have time to make a full meal. They satisfy me and I don't get hungry for hours. I add harmonia, psyllium, nutritional yeast, and flaxseed oil to my shakes, and drink 'em down (and they don't taste as bad as you might think!).
I won't make my final weight goal before the wedding, but I will be very happy to lose just 5 more pounds in the next month. Easy enough!
