I weighed this morning and I'm already down 2.8 lbs. from Monday (280.6 to 277.8). That is good news and very motivating to stay on track. I have been drinking SO much water, and did about 1 1/2 hours in the gym yesterday after work (45 min elliptical, 20 min. stat. bike, 10 min. weights). Things have also been "moving" for the first time in months, so that's good too I guess!
Woke up early this morning and decided on oatmeal instead of my usual protein smoothie (1 scoop protein powder, 1 c. water, 1 c. frozen strawberries, 1 tbs. flax oil). I love my smoothie, and it's been a mainstay this summer, even when I was not on plan. It's quick and very filling. But for some reason I wanted oatmeal, and did my usual bowl of pumpkin oatmeal - the same as I used to eat every morning this spring. It's yummy! Oats, pumpkin, flaxseed, sprinkled with walnuts and coconut.
